Krissy Nordhoff won a 2012 Dove Award for Worship Song of the Year for “Your Great Name.”
She cowrote the song with Michael Neale after a two year journey of suffering from lyme disease.
“It was a debilitating disease. I suffered for two years,” Nordhoff said. “Then I went to this healing service and the Lord touched me in a way that I had never been touched before. And I wanted to write a song about (God) that he is who he says he is. He showed me through his healing. And then I got stuck writing, so I brought the song to Michael and I’ll let him explain.”
Neale said he was writing at the piano with the “kids running around the music room and my wife came in the room and said, ‘That’s good. Keep writing.’”
So there’s a little bit about “Your Great Name.”
