Patti Hawkins
  Patti has always been involved in music but began writing in 1999. After the song ‘Why Not’ was named Song of the Year in 2000 for unsigned writers by the Gospel Music Association (GMA), she had the opportunity to work with Spring Hill Music as a writer. She has written songs recorded by artists such as Karen Peck and New River, Brian Free and Assurance, the Booth Brothers, Jeff and Sheri Easter, LordSong, Crossway and numerous other Christian music artists. Patti also has a solo ministry and routinely carries her music ministry to churches, women’s retreats and other events. She is a wife and mother of two children, and lives in rural Nettleton, Mississippi where she attends CrossPointe Fellowship.
