Welcome to Shining River!

Picture of Lisa

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
Revelation 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.

Non-Musical Writings

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. See an overview of all these writings at my "Meditations" page.

If you would like to be informed when I post new blog entries or meditations (as well as info about upcoming events, etc.) be sure to join my E-mail List.

Happy Father's Day!

In loving memory of my father, who passed away earlier this year, I produced a video of one of my songs that is beloved by many (Painter of the Heavens).

My Dad was quite the artist, and a few of his pieces are featured in the video, along with some pics and footage that were taken (of the beauty of nature in his area), when we were there during those days. (You can read more about his story in recent years in the blog posts linked below). I posted the video to YouTube last evening, and it can be found at the following URL:

I pray that you are encouraged and inspired as you listen/watch. Our loving God is so amazing...

Happy Father's Day, Abba Father. You have brought us through so much, and You're not about to stop now!

Manna From My Father's Hand

As of June 16, all the posts about my father's story are now posted at the Manna Blog page linked below.

After a LONG time of not posting on the Manna Blog here at Shining River, I posted a series of several blog posts from my "MeWe" (social media) profile. This is likely the beginning of either a more consistent blog or a podcast (or both). This is still in the formative stages, and would appreciate your prayers.

You can find the entries from the past few weeks posted here on Shining River at the following link:

A personal call to my prayer "warrior" friends

This is a quick heads up that there may be some new things happening soon around here, and having your prayers lifted up on my behalf would be greatly appreciated. There is a likely possiblity that I'll be beginning some form of prayer and or support membership type groups where we can have a more regular contact, and folks can have input on what types of content would best build up the Body of Christ, and help them as they follow Jesus.

Thanks for your prayers in that regard!


A Concert for Emily

I want to quickly update those who have been praying for me for the concert that had been scheduled for this coming Saturday, May 20, 2023 (thanks for your prayers, BTW!)

I found out this morning that the concert is being rescheduled for a date in August or September (will post the new info when it is firmed up.)

There was an issue with outside forces trying to affect the ticket sale process. Don't want to go into it in depth, but suffice to say, there are people out there who don't want to do good (sadly), but our God knows BEST, and will accomplish His will.

I had wanted to attend something else with our women's ministry from church this weekend and it was conflicting with my involvement with the concert, so I'm fine with the rescheduling actually;).

Thanks again for your prayers, and hope that the change doesn't affect your own plans if you were planning on attending. Will post the new date on my gigs page when it is determined.

Lisa Prokopowitz Outdoor Solo Concert--Ocean Grove, NJ

I recently decided to go on a social media platform called "".

Sorry to those of you FB users, I wasn't as satisfied with their terms, so opted to go to this platform instead. (You do have to join to be able to see posts, but membership is free.) If you happen to be on there, come say "hi", and check out the page I'm developing for Shining River there:

Youtube Videos on other Youtube channels

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":

There are others posted from the retreat on the same Youtube channel. Here is another one that you may enjoy (in which I sing with Wayne and Debbie Monbleau from LGM):
