ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reaching 12 is a story of emotional triumph and discovery. It is the completion of a young girl’s journey, a successful climb, and a moral victory captured through a musical journey of emotions in thought provoking melodies.

It was August 8th, 2016, when Faith’s mother found the suicide note left on her minivan. It was a heart stopping moment. The type that slows down time and changes all priorities and perspectives. On the front side of the paper it said, “PLEASE READ” in big letters. On the back was the following…

Dear Mom,

I am writing this to inform you about something I didn’t have the strength to tell you in person. I have depression. I know you think that we all go through a stage where we are sad it’s true, but this is not the case. I thought that I just had a sad time too until I realized I had been thinking about killing myself many times. I know that this is hard to hear but I felt it was important to tell you something I had been holding back for 5 years. I hope you can think of me the same after this note, and know that me thinking about killing myself is NOT your fault.

Love,

Faith

After an immediate trip to the doctor, it was discovered that Faith didn’t have clinical depression but that she suffered from a hormonal imbalance in her body. She had been waking up in the middle of the night over half of her young life and wandering around while the rest of the family slept. With a small prescription, and lots of love, Faith headed off to start middle school and a magical year that would follow.

Shortly after this experience, Faith composed a new song called Finding Hope and finished up on three others she had been working on. Focusing on her dream, new ideas started to flow like the wind. In February, her parents surprised her with a trip to a recording studio to lay down the first four tracks of this album as the dream started to take shape. She immediately set a goal to complete twelve total songs by the end of May so she could put out her first album shortly after her 12th birthday. Reaching 12 is more than just the completion of that goal. It is a reminder to take the risk and trust in the love and support of those around us when we are struggling.

If you ever feel like you can’t go on. Don’t think you are alone. Reach out and you will be amazed at how much love and support you will find.

Run with the Wind - When I was being bullied at school, I used to let it get to me. Then I decided to just let it go. I would see myself running in the wind and it would drown out the other voices so I could only hear my own thoughts.
Sunday Morning Rain – I love the peaceful sound of the rain on a Sunday morning when I can just think.
Easter Lilies – Spring is a time of change and a new life. This song symbolizes the many changes I am going through in my own life at twelve.
Finding Hope – This song was a turning point for me as I looked for help from my destructive feelings and found the love and support that was always within my reach.
Lost – Before I reached out for help I often found myself lost in my own thoughts unable to let anyone in.
Seasons – Just as there are seasons in a year, there are seasons in life. I feel like I am entering the second season of my life.
Eye of the Storm - Sometimes my feelings are chaotic but when I center myself, I can find the calm moments.
Abuelita – Last summer my Abuelita came and spent time with our family from Guatemala. She is so sweet and loving. She doesn’t speak English and I don’t speak Spanish, but we communicate in a way through signs, gestures, hugs, and google translate.
Chasing Rainbows – I thought I had all of the songs for this album, but this song came to me very quickly after I wrote twelve. As a result, I bumped the original song for this spot for a future album. We all have dreams. This song is about finding the treasure at the end of our rainbows. My excitement in finishing my album inspired this song and a flood of ideas for the next one.
Sunny Day – My mother took my brother and I to a second-hand store and he came home with a little toy guitar. I was messing around with it and came up with this main melody. It made me think of a little girl skipping on a sunny day.
Saying Goodbye – My big brother Jacob just left to serve a two-year mission for our church. The Sunday before he left, I decided to write him a song expressing my feelings to him. I wrote it that afternoon and played it for him the night before he left. It expresses the mixed bag of feelings I experienced through him leaving.
Twelve –Written three days before I turned twelve, this song is my victory march, my celebration, and my statement to the world that I am coming. Being twelve is right in the middle of being a kid and a teenager. This song expresses my desire to take the next step.
