A heartfelt welcome to you as you visit Shining River, the official web site for the music of Lisa Prokopowitz.
I am a Christian singer, songwriter, and guitarist who is devoted to sharing Jesus; His love, faithfulness, and goodness through music. By the grace of God may this web site always lead you to The River, that is , the "River of the Water of Life" spoken of in Revelation 22:1.
Shining River is a place where you will find life and sustenance, where you will be filled with Living Water, especially when all around you seems to be barren and dry. It is my hope that this site will encourage and minister to you, and that you will come back to it again and again.
If you are new to Shining River you may want to check out the Site Map page. It gives you a brief description of each section of the web site, to help you find exactly what you are seeking. Or you can just click on the buttons to the left and explore.
Upcoming Public Appearances
Go to my "Appearances" page for a list of gigs scheduled in the coming months. Some are solo, some with groups..... My prayer is that ALL will be a special time together ... and hopefully YOU can find one that's convenient for you, and bless us with YOUR presence!
If you hang around me long enough, you'll realize that I LOVE to write! Not only music, but also encouraging words to inspire others to draw near to Jesus. Check out my "Manna Blog" for brief words of encouragement, as well as my "Meditations Archive" for links to more extensive prior writings. See an overview of all these writings at my "Meditations" page.
If you would like to be informed when I post new blog entries or meditations (as well as info about upcoming events, etc.) be sure to join my E-mail List.

Sorry I've been so quiet for a while! I was a bit preoccupied with some personal issues (a death in the family), which took much of my focus and energy over the past couple of months. I am gradually getting back into the swing of things. Grateful to God for His presence and grace always. If you haven't checked it out already, by all means, check out the following site where I will connect with you to provide access to my indie CDs, as well as any other content that I hope to add there as time permits. Praying that you're blessed!
One last thing.... I recently decided to go on a social media platform called "MeWe".
Sorry to those of you FB users, I wasn't as satisfied with their terms, so opted to go to this platform instead. (You do have to join to be able to see posts, but membership is free.) If you happen to be on there, come say "hi", and check out the page I'm developing for Shining River there:
Check out the "Shining River Videos" page to gain access to all of Lisa Prokopowitz's videos. On some browsers, Youtube doesn't necessarily show all of the available videos, so check this page to view those you haven't seen before!
Youtube Videos on other Youtube channels
Feel free to check out some Youtube videos on another Youtube channel, that I discovered which had been posted by one of the attendees at one of LGM's Worship in the Woods Retreats.... Here is another version of my song, "Mercy and Majesty":
