A common theme throughout Trish Torline’s life has been her love for music. From singing in front of the living room mirror with a guitar and percolator chord as a mic, to forming her own bands and recording in high school, to showcasing in Nashville, to becoming a recognized singer, songwriter and member of the contemporary Christian music scene, Trish’s passion for music is at the core of who she is as a Christian and as a women.
“The music I write expresses the joy of being a child of God, and also the difficulty of being human. For in humanity there exists many struggles. But God has shown me, often through the songs he allows me to write, that He is able to overcome all of these.
Each time I write, I feel I am coming to grips with a struggle I have, or a joy I am celebrating. Either way, there is truth to tell. In the process of sharing these songs, I embrace the possibility that someone somewhere may receive these words and be able to claim some of them as their own.
The Lord has given me an incredible gift of writing and playing music. I have chosen to use these gifts to give hope and encouragement. On the day, when I see His Face, I want to be able to tell Him that I have used His gifts and shared them with others.”
