Thank You


Thank You!

First and most importantly, I would like to thank God because apart from Him I can do nothing but IN HIM, I can do ALL things because He provides me the strength to do so.  Lord, I surrender all my life to You and everything I do, I do for Your glory.

I would like to thank my husband, Boyd who is the love of my life and my greatest support. He has encouraged me to use my voice to glorify God through Word and Song, prays for me, ministers to me and never allows me to give up.  He travels with me, caring for me like no other.  Thank you babe. TEAM OUDEN now and forever.

I would like to also thank my daughter, Tiffany who is my first born and the reason why I sing.  She loves her momma and has extended endless encouragement, support and love to everything I set out to do.  She is that loud voice in my ear and in my head, "Mom, just do this! What are you waiting for?!"  She also designed this website. assists me administratively  and prays for me every day and ensures I never misuse the gifts God has placed in me.   Thank you so much!

To my daughter, Danielle, thank you.  She may not be as concerned or even notice all her mother is doing but she never ceases to express her love and support showering me with hugs, and sweet love notes.

To my extended family, friends and each one of you who prayed for me , encouraged me, befriended me and asked me to participate in your special event, there is just absolutely no way I could list the names of all of you because then the website would be full of "thank you" pages. You all know who you are.  There are simply not enough words to express my heartfelt gratitude to you.  Who I have become through SongforHim Ministries is a direct result of my connection with you and God's plans for my life.  May the Lord richly bless each and every one of you!  

To the Janine Sound Company and Sound Engineer, Keenan Payne, thank you for the gracious space you offered in use of your recording studio and the AMAZING job you did helping me record my first promo CD, "Journey of Worship". Your patience, love, support and kindness 

are truly invaluable and I thank God for joining us all together.

To Andre Marshall, Keyboardist extraordinaire, thank you for sharing your gift of worship through playing the piano for me.  I appreciate brother! 

To B. Nathaniel Smith aka The Keynote, thank you for mentoring me and always pushing me to be a BOSS and get it done! I am forever grateful to you.

And finally, I would like to especially thank my mother who always prayed for me and believed I could do anything I set my heart to do and although she lives in heaven with Jesus, I know she is with a great cloud of witnesses, watching over me and cheering me on. I miss and love you, Mom.

God has truly been good to me - better than I have deserved.
