Egypt Speaks is one of the most unique voices in contemporary faith-based art. She's an established instrumentalist, songwriter, and speaker-- but her voice has been heard most consistently as a powerful poet and spoken word artist.

Our heart to those who have personally struggled with suicide is that it is tough right now, there's no denying that. However, it gets better. I think as teenagers and young adult its hard to see just how big the world is. We get so narrow focused on what's right in front of us that we can't even comprehend that we'll ever get past this.
