"This song started in a spiral of despair, if I'm honest. I was discouraged. More discouraged than I'd been in a long time. In the midst of this, I was reminded of a beautiful scene in C.S. Lewis' book The Voyage of the Dawn Treader--when the heroine hears the words "Courage, dear heart" right when she needs them. Those words came to me at just the right time... when I needed them, and this song is for others who need them, too."
