Jeremy and I are very excited to tell you all about The Ryman Project.
A few weeks after Ryman was born I received a message from Brittnay Lane, a singer-songwriter here in Nashville, she had been following Ryman’s story through a mutual friend and had been praying for Ryman and our family. When we returned back to Nashville she quickly became one of our close friends and one of the people we call on to come hang out with Ryman. One night she came to watch Ryman so Jeremy and I could go to dinner and get some us time, which is very important for us to do, measuring out medicine together does not count as us time. Before we left she told us how much her life had been touched by Ryman and how much she had fallen in love with Ryman and her story. So much so that she had written a song for her and wanted to use her non-profit called Inspire Hope to do a project called The Ryman Project. We were so touched and so excited for the vision she had. Over the last 8 months we have watched it unfold piece by piece, yet another testimony to God’s faithfulness.
Inspire Hope is all about people using the gifts and talents that God has given them to help others. She has made some amazing things happen for people around the world through several projects completed through Inspire Hope. The Ryman Project is going to be one of those. She pulled together so many talented people who wanted to be a part of Ryman’s story in any way they could.
An amazingly talented producer, engineer, many artist and musicians, a videographer, a graphic designer, and the list goes on. They all wanted to help and be a part of making a difference through recording the song, Ryman’s Song, and creating a video for the world to see and get a chance to witness the miracles and blessings that God has given us. Jeremy even got to play bass on it while on one of his short visits back to Nashville during our long DC stay.
The video is on YouTube and the song can be purchased on iTunes & CD Baby. All proceeds will go to Ryman’s fund. We have been so blessed in that our financial need is not that great and we are really hoping to be able to use the proceeds to help in research of Urea Cycle Disorders, to help other families going through transplant and to help raise awareness of the importance of organ donation!
Help us spread the word of Ryman and what God has done and will continue to do through her! Share with your friends and family on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or just show them yourself.
