I was searching for a song that spoke a true meaning of Baptism to me as I was preparing my children for baptism. I couldn’t find anything I really wanted so I decided to try to write a song. I struggled to write it until one day we were taking a trip in the car. The wind was blowing through the sunroof and it called out the melody of a song that was written in the song Holy Water. That was in early 2012. I was encouraged to record the song so I thought I would call upon my talented friends to help me accomplish what I thought would be a simple task. After countless hours of the dedicated work of many friends and family, we are able to present to you the video and music of Holy Water. Please enjoy. Peace and Love. Mary
