Sarah Kroger is a Nashville-based Catholic worship leader and songwriter. She has released four albums, 'Your Time' (2011), 'Hallelujah is Our Song' (2013), 'Bloom' (2019), and her popular 4th album 'Light'. With parents involved in worship ministry, Kroger’s love for music was sparked at a young age but the impact of bullying and her struggle with anxiety and shyness hid her musical gift for years. Everything changed when she met Jesus in an intimate encounter through worship at a youth conference; “Worship became my language with God,” she explains. “It allowed me to communicate with the Lord in a way I hadn’t experienced before; there was something about it that opened my heart.” Realizing that music was a gift, she desired to give back to the Lord. Kroger began leading worship at her church and has since done worship concerts all around the world. With singles ‘Standing In Your Light’, ‘Belovedness’, ‘Monument’, ‘A Thousand Thank Yous’ and ‘Unbroken Family’, Kroger's new album introduces a soundscape that mixes honesty with courage, pointing to the album’s encouragement of continually staying in relationship with the Lord. As a contemporary worship leader in the Catholic Church, Kroger gives a new language to people’s relationship with Jesus – ‘Light’ is an inspiration to keep saying yes to vulnerability, intimacy, and honesty.
Franchelle Jaeger is a national speaker, writer, Catholic creative, catechist and evangelist. Before changing her name to “Mama” she worked professionally as an actress on the stage. Since her theatrical retirement, her mission has been to tell married couples, women, and young people about the Savior’s lavish, relentless love for them anywhere and anyway she can. She is co-Founder of Bellator Catholic Media where she shares much of her published writing. She and her husband, Matt, are Natural Family Planning teachers and have spent most of their 22 years of marriage sharing the good news of the Theology of the Body and God’s design for holy and happy families. The Jaegers have 4 sons and are currently raising them in the rolling hills of Tennessee, not too far from Nashville. If by some unmitigated measure of grace or bloody martyrdom the cause for her canonization is ever opened, she will be a patron saint of getting stains out of many things.
