On My Mind1999 - 2010
This album of songs is from a couple years before Beka married, while she was in Papua New Guinea and later, Israel, through the first years of marriage. She was very busy during that period of time, and many of the songs written then were lost or forgotten, but this album is a compilation of what she feels is the best of her early years. It has many songs on the subject of belief in Christ and worship. Her favorite is the song, On My Mind.
As with all the songs on this website so far, Beka recorded these in her bedroom, in between rooster crows, sheep baaing, children bursting in to ask questions, with just a simple microphone and her broken-but-mended guitar. She hopes in time to record in a studio!
