Music and ministry for the feminine heart. We are musicians with a focus on women's ministry. Through music, speaking, blogs and videos we hope to inspire women to become all that God has created them to be.
Who We Are
"A woman cannot remain neutral in the world...she too is set for the rise and fall of many." -St. Madeleine Sophie Barat
His Own was formed by three friends who wanted to combine their love for Jesus, passion for music and desire to proclaim the joy of the feminine heart. In a world where women are exploited, misused, and misguided, we desire that our music and ministry will inspire women to come before the Lord as they are, to encounter His unique love for them, and to be reminded of the eternal measure of their feminine dignity and worth.
Kara, a native of New Orleans, LA, has spent over 10 years traveling the globe, sharing her testimony and music. She has released 5 original albums, won 6 Unity Awards by the United Catholic Music and Video Association, and has appeared on four international television programs. Encountering countless women with the same struggle to find their true identity in Christ lit a fire in her heart to help found His Own, which she hopes will inspire many throughout the world to seek, know and discover the unconditional love of Jesus.
Maria was born in Kentucky and began singing, playing piano and writing music by the age of six. In college she led worship for venues such as Steubenville conferences and World Youth Days, and traveled internationally playing a variety of genres including jazz, classical, country and classic rock. Maria has always been passionate about health and wellness, and when she discovered the teachings of Saint John Paul the Great’s Theology of the Body, she became ever more passionate about sharing the dignity, worth and beauty of the human person.
Christine is proud to be one of the few native Nashvillians and the fourth of ten children. After college, she began singing at faith rallies, Youth 2000s, Ignite Your Torch and Glory Nights in Nashville, but felt a call to do a ministry where women would be uplifted, inspired and affirmed in their femininity. Through understanding the gift that we are as women, she felt like she has found a joy to living—and longs to share it!

Turn His Heart: A captivating talk on chastity, which asks “what kind of woman do you truly want to be? A woman that turns a man’s head, or a woman who turns his heart?” In this talk the girls share their own journeys on why they chose lives of purity amidst a culture of promiscuity. They talk about dating, learning to love, modesty, second chances, forgiving yourself, and choosing to be a woman who loves in every phase of life.
Meeting Jesus: Our Personal Testimonies: Kara, Maria and Christine intimately share how they each made their unique and individual journeys into the heart of Christ. They share their struggles and joys along the continual road of conversion, the moments of doubt, the tragedies and trials of life, and how they encountered the love of God and learned to trust radically in the His goodness along the way.
Today’s Desperate Need for the Masculine: A Presentation to Men This talk, given to men, addresses the deep need for authentic masculinity in the world today. Reminding men of their irreplaceable role as leaders, protectors, and providers, Kara, Maria and Christine speak to men from a woman’s perspective, encouraging them to be the men God is calling them to be.
Why Are We Genius Anyway?: In this presentation the girls discuss the dignity, vocation and role of woman, as taken from St. John Paul the Great’s “The Genius of Women” and “Mulieris Dignitatem.” They include what makes us unique as women, the great power and responsibility we hold in the world, our uniquely feminine gifts of trust, receptivity and surrender, and how we can live authentic femininity.
Give Yourself Away: Amidst a generation that tells us we will only be fulfilled through our own selfish desires, Kara, Maria and Christine challenge today’s narcissistic notions through Christ’s words that it is in “losing our life that we find it” (Matt 10:39). This talk focuses on finding the fullness of joy through becoming women of service and gratitude, through learning to embrace life fully and love others freely in every moment, and to trust radically in the goodness of God, despite the circumstances around us.
