Tips for Church Pianists Part 2 {Lois Ormsby}

Accompanying is something I’m passionate about. Solo performance is not my strong suit; it is important and something I constantly seek to improve in, but it is not my passion.

              Today we found out that we are having a baby next week!  Baby Sophie will be born on December 4th via C-section.  The doctors have reviewed all the risks to my health and decided that it would be best to deliver early (at 34 weeks).  It will be different than a usual section.  The […]

Road Rage {Lois Ormsby}

Confession: road rage is something I struggle with!  No, I don’t swear or use rude hand signals or anything like that.  What I do is verbally blow up at the person who cuts me off – yep, out loud, as if they could hear me.  I go on and on about how dangerous their move […]

Accepting Help {Lois Ormsby}

Being the recipient of a helping hand is not always easy – especially when you are the type of person who loves to be the helping hand for someone else.  I’ve had to accept help (of so many forms) more times in the past few years than I care to admit.  Through the repeated process […]
