Serving as a Stay-At-Home-Mom and a Recording Artist — with Whitney Maslak
Season 4, Episode 17 | Originally aired on March 29, 2022
“In following my vocation and doing my best to focus on my family’s needs, I think God has been able to speak to me and bring out this career of being a recording artist.”
Whitney Maslak was encouraged from an early age to share her musical gifts with her community. While going professional with her music wasn’t seen as a practical path, Whitney never stopped singing. Through an inspired moment in prayer, she received assurance from the Lord to pursue music, and from there, while caring for her family as a stay at home mom, she went on to release an album, working on it in her home and sharing it with the world. In this episode, Whitney and I talk about her love for music and cantoring, how Gregorian chant helped her through some challenging times, and the balance of motherhood while pursuing her music dreams.
