During this next week you should start seeing this post becoming more and more populated with new songs (see below). We are continuing our 5in5 challenge by writing one song per month for the next 7 months so by the end of the year we will have 12 brand new songs.

This month’s challenge was very specific. The basic outline of our assignment was to write an upbeat praise song in a good “range” for a woman-worship leader’s voice. So be on the lookout for more and more songs throughout this week. I can’t wait to see what will be written!

And, if you would like to stay up-to-date with these songs & more… sign up for my newsletter (using the blue box on the right hand side of this page) and I will be sure to let you know what events will be happening next.

As promised, when we started talking about 5in5 this year, I mentioned that I had some bonuses planned for you. To better understand them, let me first tell a quick backstory…

When we began 5in5 I originally wanted to call it 5in5in5 which meant (in my mind) 5 songs in 5 days in the 5th month (May). But the title seemed too confusing – even to me. So I shortened it to 5in5 and that seemed much better; however, I still sometimes think about it being 5in5in5. This year when thinking about that old title (5in5in5) I realized a cool little math thing which I will now try to explain plainly.

By the end of our 5 days of 5in5 songwriting we end up with 5 songs. 5 songs is as many songs as there have been months this year = 5. Everyone still with me? Not trying to turn this into a difficult math problem, but to recap: we have had 5 months so far in 2013 and we now have 5 songs that we have written. This is no small feat, but I think you have even more in you…
