Singer & Speaker
As a singer/songwriter and worship leader, Mia’s soulful music reflects the painful beauty of human struggles and a passion to worship the God who saves. Her life is a compelling story of sin, surrender, sanctification and song. Living as a testimony to God’s grace and His forgiveness, she is inspired to share that message of hope with others through music as a recording artist, a writer and a speaker. Mia is the wife of Bob and the mother of three children, Chris, Aaron and Miriam.
