Sappy Seeds Publishing seeks to promote and publish quality Christian music inspired by the Word of God.
Sappy Seeds Publishing features music by singer/songwriter/musician Cheri Showalter. Cheri has been writing music for over 26 years. Believing that God uses music as a unique way of speaking to our hearts and drawing us to Himself, Cheri strives to offer songs that invite us to personally encounter Jesus for the first time or in a fresh new way. Having personally witnessed how God uses His Word to change her own life, her desire as a writer is to implant the Word of God into her music and therefore into the hearts and lives of people.
What is a "Sappy Seed"? Luke 8:11 tells us that "the seed is the Word of
God". "Sap" contains "energy, vitality, health, strength, life and vigor". We find all these qualities in the Word of God and through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
"So get rid of all uncleanness and the rampant outgrowth of wickedness and
in a humble (gentle, modest) spirit receive and welcome the Word which implanted and rooted [in your hearts] contains the power to save your souls."
James 1:21 amplified
The word "publish" means to "make generally known, proclaim". God has not only given us His Word to be implanted in our own lives but we're called to "proclaim" the gospel to all people. It is the desire of Sappy Seeds Publishing to "proclaim and make known" the love of God and the life-changing message found in God's Word.
"I desire to do Your will, O my God; Your law is within my heart. I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, as you know, O Lord. I do not hide Your righteousness in my heart; I speak of Your faithfulness and salvation. I do not conceal Your love and Your Truth..." Psalm 40:8-10 amplified
