A heartfelt welcome to you as you visit Shining River, the official web site for the music of Lisa Prokopowitz.
I am a Christian singer, songwriter, and guitarist who is devoted to sharing Jesus; His love, faithfulness, and goodness through music. By the grace of God may this web site always lead you to The River, that is , the "River of the Water of Life" spoken of in Revelations 22:1.
Shining River is a place where you will find life and sustenance, where you will be filled with Living Water, especially when all around you seems to be barren and dry. It is my hope that this site will encourage and minister to you, and that you will come back to it again and again.
If you are new to Shining River you may want to check out the Site Map page. It gives you a brief description of each section of the web site, to help you find exactly what you are seeking. Or you can just click on the buttons to the left and explore.

If you hang around me long enough, you'll realize that I LOVE to write! Not only music, but also encouraging words to inspire others to draw near to Jesus. Check out my "Manna Blog" for brief words of encouragement, as well as my "Meditations Archive" for links to more extensive prior writings.

I posted a new video to Youtube today, entitled "Change of Plans--the Story Behind the Song "Move On". You can see the video here:
Could you use some encouragement? If so, I hope the following may help you to press on and not give up. Spring is certainly right around the corner (yay … finally)!
Perhaps you or a friend, however, may feel as though you are stranded, heading up a steep hill covered with frozen ice and snow, with no one to help, and the winter in your heart is determined to keep you stuck there.
May these words echo in your heart:
1. Look for the good; find the beauty in the midst of the pain. 2. Keep your tank full. 3. You are NOT alone.
Feel free to check out some Youtube videos on another Youtube channel, that I discovered which had been posted by one of the attendees at one of LGM's Worship in the Woods Retreats.... Here is another version of my song, "Mercy and Majesty":
