I had the chance to talk with Ellie Holcomb about:
- How God worked through her to write music about Jesus.
- The value of scripture in the songwriting process. (we’ve got a great post here about theology in worship).
- The process of culling from 45 songs down to her latest project.
- Some of the scriptures that she has memorized.
- How the songs you write can speak truth into your own life years later.
- The process of writing with other songwriters. How God was faithful through spending time in personal devotion with Him.
- Her work with the organization Young Life.
- Advice for new songwriters.
