An average mom and housewife on most days, Becki Hedrick gets the call and trades in her toilet brush and dishpan hands for an acoustic guitar and a microphone, transforming into a songsmith whose melodies draw you in and lyrics grab you at heart level. Prepare, as you listen, to be carried on a ride that is equal parts “great adventure” and “deep soul searching” while her songs penetrate into the hidden places of the heart.
After a life-changing encounter with Jesus as a teen, Becki remembers offering her fledgling musical abilities to God, “… however You can use it, please do. I give it all to You.” She started writing songs out of her growing relationship with Jesus, sharing them with friends and family, and before long, publicly.
Since that day, Becki performs full concerts, private house concerts, sings for various and numerous events – in coffeehouses, for retreats, conferences, festivals, services – and has been heard live on radio, internet, and TV. She serves as worship leader in both small and large groups within church and para church ministries.
Becki views her songs as one way to express God’s transforming love in her own life and to articulate the message of the gospel. “The reason I share my songs is that I hope they will draw people closer to Jesus. If I can convey even just a glimpse of Him – who He really is – it could mean an opportunity for people to connect with Him in a way that could transform absolutely everything. I know that without the Holy Spirit my songs are just songs. But when He takes hold of them He does extraordinary things with them.”
Becki is married to Scott and is the mother of four amazing kids. Among her experiences, she is serving as the Wheeling, WV coordinator for the Ohio Valley National Day of Prayer Task Force, has been involved in the Lay Witness Mission ministry, worked as a youth group leader, a Registered Nurse, a homemaker/stay-at-home mom, homeschool teacher, and private care giver. Some of her favorite things are family outings to Cooper’s Rock State Forest, conversations on the porch with friends, sitting around a campfire, and singing old time music to residents in area nursing homes. She and Scott co-lead a weekly home fellowship group with friends. Becki is focusing on concert ministry and is excited to share her CD, “Call of the Cross”.
