Welcome to my site!
I'm Simcha! I live in Northern Israel near Caesarea, where I am married and a mom to 3 kids!
The 'Dare to Ask' project was a journey of recording a long season of being hidden, broken, passed over and feeling invisible. It is my story of songs written in the secret place when I was convinced no one would ever hear them except God.
The jewel that I found in this place, is that the desert and dark seasons are a place of privilege. A place of promise and a place He only takes His chosen ones. The challenges, storms, desert seasons and pain all became something I learned to no longer despise, but to appreciate and even ‘Dare to Ask’ for.
Everything you see on this website is fruit of those seasons.
God asked me to chronicle the things I learned in this 15 year season, to write it down, and eventually He ‘cornered me’ into turning these musings into the book ‘Dare to Ask’. This book it like the umbrella to all that I’ve done since.
Since the book was published, God revealed to me a pattern of ‘daring to ask’, which begins with dreaming, and learning how to dream once again, and how God can be found in our dreams. This is represented by the first EP and devotional - ‘Dreaming’. Then we move onto a season of being awakened, and starting to step out into the dreams we’ve learned have come from God, and learning to stand tall on His promises. This is stage is represented by the EP and devotional ‘Awakened’. Only when these stages have been completed can we then ‘Soar’ with Him - the name of the third, and final EP and devotional.
But it all starts with ‘Dare to Ask’, and being willing to wrestle for more from God, from a place of Rest.
Through beautifully honest personal stories, as well as the lives of biblical characters, in Dare to Ask, Simcha Natan unravels some of the mystery behind how we can keep pushing for more of God, from a place of rest, whatever the season of life we are experiencing. Dare to ask tells the stories behind the songs which are being produced in a succession of 3 EP records. 'Dreaming' the first of the 3, is available now here
New this week!
Simcha also paints to reflect the messages of her books and songs, tying everything together into a multi sensory expression of who she is, a creative!
It is a great passion of hers to see people engage with God in the way they were created to best, and for many this isn't through the most obvious medium. She believes in meeting people where they're at, and opening up new pathways of communication between us and God.
