Welcome, I’m so happy to connect!
I'm Simcha! I live in Northern Israel near Caesarea, where I am married to an amazing man, and a mom to 3 incredible, world changing kids!
The 'Dare to Ask' project was a journey of chronicling 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 track 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 is 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, something so many of us have abandoned, 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 start to step out into the dreams we’ve learned have come from God, and learning to stand tall on His promises. It’s about understanding more of who God is, and therefore who we are. This is stage is represented by the EP and devotional ‘Awakened’. Only when these stages have been completed can we then ‘Soar’! Learning to dare to fall and find his thermals in surprising ways that bring new perspective and understanding, ‘Soar’ is all about learning to rise above and is the name of the third, and final EP and devotional - coming 2019!
But it all starts with ‘Dare to Ask’, and being willing to wrestle for more from God, from a place of Rest.

Simcha shares the vision, the adventure and passion behind all that brought the project into being. Featuring music from the EPs as the backing track, and filmed in her living room, Simcha invites you into a world of wrestling for more, while remaining at rest, perspective shifts, challenges of mindsets and an opportunity to step into new ground!
Dare to ask courses!
There is always more if we 'Dare to Ask’.
These courses have been created for those who appreciate a small, closed community to discuss, talk and pray through the process of Daring to Ask, Dreaming with God again, and being Awakened and stepping out into new ground..
Making this a live discussion on a weekly basis means there is space for each participant to figure out how to apply the challenges to their lives both practically and spiritually in a safe and closed community, tailored to them.
These courses are based on a 4-week or 6-week time scale, and include weekly materials, resources, guides and community.
We’d love for you to join the next course!

Awakened EP and Devotional
Awakened is the second of three EPs that make up the Dare to Ask project which consists of books, music, devotionals and art projects that explore a common theme - Daring to Ask for something from the perspective of Rest while being willing to wrestle with God for more.
Awakened is all about the process of waking up spiritually to who God is, who He made us to be, and how He wants to partner uniquely with us. Each song explores different aspects of this process, and is accompanied by a 30-day Devotional; Awakened, as well as artwork for the songs.
This project is all about waking up, picking ourselves up, dusting ourselves off and stepping out into the fullness of what God has for us, with fresh passion and zeal.
Dreaming EP and Devotional
‘Dreaming’ is the first of three EPs that make up part of the ‘Dare to Ask’ project which consists of the umbrella book ‘Dare to Ask’ which tells the stories of the songs, the music itself in the form of 3 EPs, each with a counterpart 30-day devotional which lead a more detailed journey of the process of Daring to Ask. There are also art projects that explore the themes from this adventure of Daring to Ask.
The ‘Dreaming’ EP encourages the listener to draw near to Him, to find Rest, to allow God to overcome them and to invite the breath of God into their lives. The music has been described as ‘‘meditative’, ‘intimate’, ‘soaking’, ‘uplifting’, ‘alternative indie’ and ‘chilled’.
Each song takes inspiration from biblical characters, stories, or passages written about in the book, and is accompanied by a 30-day devotional, Dreaming with God which leads the listener on a journey of dreaming with God again.
I also paint to reflect the messages of my books and songs, tying everything together into a multi sensory expression of who I am, a creative!
It is a great passion of mine to see people engage with God in the way they were created to, and for many this isn't through the most obvious medium. I believe in meeting people where they're at, and opening up new pathways of communication between us and God.
