JJ & Dave Heller: The Value of Vulnerability

Wow. This episode was a special one for me for a lot of reasons. JJ’s music has played a significant role in my life, and getting to talk to her and Dave was absolutely fantastic. They even let me interrupt them while on vacation in sunny Florida with their daughters Lucy and Nora.

I remember seeing her play at church years ago and saying to myself, “There is something special about her.” I even walked down the aisle to her song “Where I Land” (Click here to listen to it).  

What I love about her music is that it speaks straight into the feelings of doubt and worthlessness that most girls face. Finding out more about what inspires their songwriting was fun for me because they shared how they tap into God’s promises and the hope that is found in Him.

Her new album “Sound Of A Living Heart” is available now and you need to check it out. The song “Let Down Your Guard” – CHILLS. Chills because these words represent everything today’s girl needs to know there’s a God that loves her and that she is perfect just the way she is.


I can see it in your face
You’re somewhere below the surface
So you hide yourself away

A masterpiece behind a curtain

Let down your guard
I will never hurt you
Let down your guard
No matter what you’ve been through
I will always love you
Let down your guard

Even though you’ve been afraid
I believe you can be bolder
I can teach you to be brave
When you climb upon my shoulders

Let down your guard
I will never hurt you
Let down your guard
No matter what you’ve been through
I will always love you
Let down your guard
You don’t have to hide You can be alive

You can download her new album. Do it. Her music can change your life (I know from personal experience, more than once).
