Create, I say!
An eye will widen
Because of it.
— Widen, A collection of poems by Chris Rice

Melody and lyric; paint brush and canvas; rhyme and poetic rhythm--tools in the creative mind and hand of Chris Rice, whose 20 years of love songs and songs of faith continue to deeply move listeners, whose ORIGINAL paintings show off their colors in hundreds of homes around the world, whose poetry sings its own way into the souls who read it.


Mine is a life inspired by the beauty and color of nature, the contemplation of God, and the humor tucked into small everyday moments. Driven to communicate all of this through creative means, I am overwhelmed by the privilege, and happy to find my work reaching so many people in meaningful ways.
— Chris
