JACKSON, MISS. (MARCH 30, 2022) - This Friday, artist and worship leader Allie Murphy releases “Better Things," her new single written to encourage mothers like herself to find joy in all things – even the mundane.

Inspired by Ephesians 2:10 and 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12, Murphy originally wrote, “Better Things” as a personal cry out to God. She felt stuck in the tension between her dreams and callings for both creativity and motherhood for many years. Murphy believes the little moments in life that lead to the sometimes draining feeling of being a mother can be viewed as tender moments raising the future generation and beauty in the sacrifice.

“You see, the folding of the laundry and the wiping of little hands is an act of creation,” said Murphy. “In caring for these souls, I am helping to grow and nurture the Kingdom of God. Perhaps this is the greatest creative act I’ll ever be engaged in. It matters.”

Murphy’s own husband Mike Murphy and Blue Sky Studios helped produce the inspirational single. The entire team hopes the song encourages listeners to choose joy in the better things, diligently going after God in the journey He has called them to.
Days are long and all the years they go too easy
But life’s a dance of choosing joy no matter what it takes
OHHH I'm done chasing wind, I'm done
The better things, I'd rather choose, I'd rather choose
I'd rather choose the Better Things

Murphy is excited to release a lyric video full of snippets of the everyday life of motherhood. She plans to promote and share her story as a mother and songwriter on all of her existing platforms.

When listeners around the world hear this song, they will be lifted up to see that the little things matter because God sees, cares and made them for this.
