Singer/songwriter Katie Drake is a wife of a cowboy, mom to three amazing kids and a knitter extraordinaire! She is passionate about helping lead women into the presence of the Almighty God through worship and music. Katie’s days are filled with homeschooling those amazing kids, working as a family photographer, leading worship at her local church and connecting with as many friends during the week as possible. Katie loves to create, whether it’s a new pair of earrings, writing a song or thinking up the best use of space in their small two bedroom house, she is most happy when her days include some kind of creative venture. Katie also loves Wanted Campference. Katie led worship at the second Wanted Campference and hasn’t missed a year since!
