"I've always considered Jesus my best friend since I was a little kid.
As I got older, my spirituality naturally came through more and more in my songwriting and I realized how great it felt to sing praises to God through my songs," Katie says when reflecting on the meaning behind her new song. "'Safe and Warm (Lullaby for Jesus)' is a song about my gratitude for Jesus always taking care of me, even when there is so much in the world that needs taking care of. He still never forgets me. It's a lullaby of thanks. I wanted the music video to reflect my personal connection to God that I've felt all my life, while also painting a bigger picture to let others know that His love is all around us."
