Everest faculty and students are featured on a new musical release by the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi. EC theology teacher Shane Dabney and several Everest Academy students were invited by Jill Swallow to record on her latest five-song album “Hundredfold”. In addition to serving as Everest Formation Director, Jill is a singer and song writer. The title of the new album is a reflection of her experience of consecrated life, having left everything to follow Christ. (The title alludes to the Scripture passage Matt 13:44, about finding treasure hidden in the field.) Jill said the songs on the collection were inspired during moments of prayer. For example, the idea for the song “Bless Them” came to her during a profound moment when she was holding a sick baby at an orphanage on a mission trip to Haiti. She said it has always been her dream to have children’s voices singing the final refrains of the song, and that dream came true with the help of several Everest students.
