On the stage and behind the scenes

The NarroWay Blog

Have you ever wondered how NarroWay got its start? We're going back to the very beginning to walk through the incredible journey with NarroWay founders Rebecca Martin and Yvonne Clark!

Chapter 11: The NarroWay Mindset


birdie clown costumeI Corinthians 9:22: "I have WILL become all things to all men, that by all means I might save some." This is one of Birdie's and Rebecca's life principles which became part of the NarroWay mindset.REBECCA –
We headed back to Kentucky to become what we said we never wanted to be: church staff!

Birdie was Music & Youth. I was Education & Youth.

My first priority was to build the music program. At my first rehearsal I had 12 choir members.

And I was one of them!

Chapter 10: Entering the Hold

Unfortunately, life doesn’t go by check lists.

The boarding school was located in a secluded area in beautiful Virginia. In many ways, it was a wilderness.

What does this part of life have to do with the NarroWay story?


Maybe it made us realize:
If hell is worse than this, we don’t want anyone to go there!!

That’s it!

When the time isn’t right or there’s something left to learn, God puts us in a HOLDING PATTERN.

Holding Pattern: "the flight path maintained by a plane awaiting permission to land."

Chapter 9: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

One month till graduation from seminary! Then what?

Soooo many said: “You’re crazy! No church will hire a woman.”

We knew it. All we could say: “If God called us, that’s His problem.”

One night traveling, Rebecca said, “Wouldn’t it be awful to spend this long in school and die before graduating?”

We laughed.
