“We’ve all been through something; it doesn’t matter if you were born in the poorest nation in the world or the son/daughter of a billionaire. We have all gone through something. The question is what will you do to overcome? What will you do to conquer and what will you do to heal? Echoes is one woman’s journey, spoken. This audio CD is now presented to you for the first time anywhere. This is not a sad story; it was not created for you to feel empathy. Echoes was created to inspire, enrich and to show us that anything can be overcome.
Echoes is broken down into 15 spoken word poems. Each one tells a story. Echoes is an emotional roller coaster, one piece will make you cry, the next will have you overcome with joy and cheer. Echoes is not only about the trials and tribulations of Ingrid Jane Phillips and the blessings that have come her way, Echoes is also about the ability to accept your blessings. The lord can be ready to bless you but until you are open to receiving, these blessing will not come. This is a precious lesson that Ingrid has learned and she shares this through her poetry.
I will not go into Ingrid’s triumph, which is the reason why Echoes exists. I will however say that this CD is meant to inspire. If Ingrid can empower just one person, it will have made it all worth it. I challenge you to not let Ingrid only inspire one person. If you are reading this, I have no doubt you will be inspired by this piece of work. Don’t keep these works for yourself. Share it, and inspire others to join in and hear Ingrid’s mission, her passion and her life’s work.”
I’m excited to start talking about this poetry album (not book)! These interviews normally have to do with books, which is obviously not a bad thing… I’m a total bookworm, but spoken word sets a different type of ambiance. What was your source of inspiration for this wonderful creation?
My inspiration for this poetry CD is really based on my life story. I was abused sexually.
Hearing that made my heart sink. It honestly takes courage to create and share that art in the face of something so traumatizing. May you tell me a bit about your journey as a poetess?
My writing journey started when I muted myself from the world and penned my pain in writing. Each poem/song came from an experience.
Experiences really have the power to put one on a creative path. I’m glad poetry found you. It’s such an incredible outlet! But poetry blossoms into something more with muses. What are some of yours?
My inspiration is from God and some people who have experienced abuse and don’t know how to cope with life as well as my son for his support.
That’s beautiful! Care to share a bit about your writing process?
My writing comes at any given moment, where something will happen and I start to write about my experience.
Inspiration really is everywhere! You don’t know when it’ll strike you next. Is there anything else you’d like to mention before we conclude this interview?
I would like anyone out there listening to feel free to call or email me. I would be happy to come and share my story. Phone: 813-394-7522 Email: MyNowMinistries@gmail.com
