“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” – Psalm 23:5-6

Tasha Layton was tired – no, she was more than tired. She was exhausted, drained, rubbed raw by life. Walking into the studio that day, all that Tasha – who was pregnant at the time – wanted was a break. But she said yes.

As she stepped out in faith, God wove beauty from the gaping hole where Tasha was convinced there was not even a drop left to give. That day, she wrote Into the Sea.

In that empty place, she found something special, “there was a magic to it, and a desperation to it that you wouldn’t have gotten otherwise.”
