Hannah Hardin

Hi there! My name is Hannah Hardin and it is an absolute joy to be a part of the music The Worship Initiative produces. I grew up in east Dallas, attended Texas A&M University, then came straight back to the big city after graduating. I currently teach Kindergarten in Lake Highlands and volunteer as a worship leader at my home church, Northway Church. While music is not my full time career, it is a huge part of my life and one of the main ways I feel the Lord's presence in joy and sorrow. There is nothing sweeter to me than singing with the saints and getting just a preview of heaven sounds in the midst of the world's brokenness.
