Surrender - A new, original song about finding peace in the midst of challenges

Surrender - A new, original song about finding peace in the midst of challenges

My husband joked when I was writing this that it was my "giving up" song, due to the title. While surrendering can mean giving up, it doesn't have to mean that.
