Image04062013183332Welcome to Southern Gospel World. My name is Sony Elise and I’ve been an avid southern gospel fan for over 25 years.

My introduction to southern gospel music came when I heard The Happy Goodman Family on an aerobics tape my mom bought when I was about 9 years old. It was love at first sound and started me on a journey to learn all I could about this music that had great harmony and left me feeling uplifted and encouraged.

Besides having my own blog, I also write a Sunday devotional for MusicScribe. I am so grateful for the opportunity to minister through writing, and I’m thankful for each of you who read my writings.

For my “day job,” I work with Family Renewal, a ministry my brother, his wife, and I started on July 1, 2013. If you would like to be added to our ministry’s email list, email me and I’ll be happy to add you. This is the best way to keep up with my travel schedule and what God is doing through us there. We also have a Facebook page.

In February of 2014, I started Sony Elise Editing Services, which allows me to merge something I love (reading) with one of my gifts (proofreading and editing). My life has been full of changes lately but it’s reinforced what I already knew: Life with God is anything but boring! I’m so looking forward to seeing what God desires to do in and through me as I continue to walk with Him.

If you have a southern gospel project you would like to submit for review, please email me at sonyelise@gmail.com, and I will email you the address to send to. Products submitted will not be returned, and I do not guarantee a review of every project I receive, but I will listen to it and prayerfully consider it. I am also open to receiving press releases of anything which may be of interest to the Southern Gospel community.

May God bless you and keep you as you serve Him. He is the Reason we sing!
