Cornelia, as well as being a recording artist, is also a Romanian/English translator now based in Devon. This nine-track album released in 2009, presents mainly acoustic guitar backed folk style songs. A prime example of this is the second track, "My Destiny" which is a straightforward uncluttered worship song, that is further enhanced by Cornelia's fragile voice. Occasionally, other instruments appear in the mix (such as bass guitar and keyboard) with "Always Remember" seeking to remind the listener of what Christ has done and "Thank You" being a simple song of gratitude. Having listened to the disc several times, it is clear that there are seeds of quality songwriting here, evident on "I Am God" for example, but not enough to hold the listeners attention. In addition, the production quality often sounds more like a demo. Cornelia clearly has talent, but this disc is not a great showcase for it.
