Anastasya Laverdiere is a Canadian worship leader, songwriter, Christian Recording Artist and writer whose desire is to know God more and make Him known.
Anastasya’s enjoyment of singing and song writing surfaced at a young age which led her to eventually perform her first written song at a high school concert. After hearing first hand how much it had encouraged some people and gave them strength while facing a difficult situation, it solidified in her heart a desire to use the music she’d been given to impact others. She eventually pursued training in music and song writing at college and enjoyed many opportunities to sing and tour.

As a young adult, Anastasya experienced a particularly difficult period in her life which involved facing physical health issues, anxiety, and the pain of broken relationships. What she experienced with God and the reality of His presence in her life during this season, would serve as a catalyst to pursue Him more and discover her identity in Him. During this time, writing songs became a way for her to express the response of her heart to the kindness the Father was showing her and to declare truth over her situations. This expression became the creative center of her heart for new songs, many of which developed into congregational worship music that she has had the privilege of releasing into the church. Some of these songs are on her first 7 song EP entitled Draw Me Away .
Also a writer, Anastasya enjoys encouraging others from her blog called “In the Garden” which focuses on identity and relationship with God the Father. She hopes that every form of her writings will inspire others to draw closer to the Father to receive revelation of His open arms. She loves to release faith and see passionate and genuine worship ascend to the Lord from hearts enkindled by His love.
Aside from writing and leading worship, Anastasya enjoys sipping green tea, cooking and road trips! She loves living life and serving alongside her husband Joel as they journey along God’s unfolding plan for their lives.
