Writing Worship: How to Craft Heartfelt Songs for the Church by Krissy Nordhoff [Review]


In Writing Worship: How to Craft Heartfelt Songs for the Church, the Christian songwriter will explore the depths of the heart, immersing in relationship with God before learning practical worship songwriting skills. Award-winning songwriter Krissy Nordhoff helps lyricists and musicians sharpen their skills in starting songs, adding dimension, removing distractions, maintaining momentum, and co-writing.
Songwriters and worship leaders are challenged to trust the Lord with their gifts as they put their new skills into practice. They also have access to:

  • Links to video with examples
  • A songwriter personality assessment
  • Podcast episodes for every songwriter personality
  • Access to special downloads, including a leader’s guide for group learning and an audiobook with extra content from Krissy


Krissy Nordhoff is a professional songwriter and the co-founder of Brave Worship. She has been nominated for three Dove Awards and won Worship Song of the Year for “Your Great Name” (2012). Her songs have been recorded by artists including Natalie Grant, Mandisa, Darlene Zschech, Lauren Daigle, Dustin Smith, Aaron Shust, and Meredith Andrews. Krissy has a heart and passion for training the next generation of worship songwriters.


This book is written primarily for those who are interested in writing worship music but I believe it also speaks to Christian writers of all kinds. We must be careful that our words speak truth & that we don’t run on endlessly, just to hear our own voice.

Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few. – Ecclesiastes 5:2 NIV
