From the recording PICK-ME-UP
"We all have our 'pick-me-ups', be it shopping, over-eating, drugs, alcohol, or gambling... something to bring relief. I wrote this song as I was turning my own 'pick-me-ups' over to God. I've come to realize that God is the only 'pick-me-up' that truly satisfies." - Heather Layne For more recovery stories like this one, visit the "Products" page and order Heather's new book, "The Nashville Collection...
