Nashville, Tenn. (February 4, 2020) – What’s the most important ingredient in crafting an impactful worship song? Dove Award-winning songwriter and worship leader Krissy Nordhoff knows it’s all about relationships: with God and one another. In her first book, Writing Worship: How To Craft Heartfelt Songs for the Church, available March 1 through David C Cook, Nordhoff invites aspiring and seasoned lyricists on a journey of exploration and skill development because, as she states, “your voice is valued by the King and needed by the church.”

 A professional songwriter for over twenty years and founder of the Brave Worship writing community, Nordhoff is the recipient of three Dove Award nominations and the winner of a Dove Award for Worship Song of the Year for the beloved anthem “Your Great Name.” Her songs have been recorded by artists including: Natalie Grant, Tauren Wells, Darlene Zschech, Jenn Johnson (Bethel Music), Mandisa, David and Nicole Binion, Corey Voss, Aaron Shust, Travis Cottrell, Prestonwood Worship and Philips, Craig & Dean.

Though she’s been writing since childhood, it has only been within the last 10 years that the Nashville area wife and mom’s songs – born from her tears and triumphs – would travel the globe and help others plumb new depths in their relationships with God. Through Writing Worship, Nordhoff hopes to impart the lessons she learned to help writers discover, cultivate and nurture the songs in their hearts in order to write impactful worship songs for themselves, their congregations and the global church.

While focusing on their relationship with God through prayer and two-way journaling, readers of varying skill levels will learn to craft lyrics and melodies, learn to self-edit during the writing process, clarify a song’s purpose and co-write songs customized for their churches and communities. Nordhoff also offers free resources such as video tutorials, a songwriter personality assessment, topical podcasts, a leader’s guide for group learning and a bonus audiobook.

An instructor who coaches individuals and church worship teams in writing and co-writing for their communities, Nordhoff is passionate about unlocking God’s fresh revelation through new songs and the head-heart connection found in music. 

“Whether in times of challenge or victory, worship leaders and songwriters have an opportunity to meet the congregation right where they are,” she explains. “Worship songs help us gently approach people experiencing trials and lead hearts to healing. Often we can encourage through song as we never could through the spoken word.”
