“Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart” ~Psalm 37
Valerie Repetski has a heart for worship, and enjoys sharing the great joy that she has found in Christ with everyone who will listen – at youth events, retreats, ministry workshops, or with her band The Restless. Valerie wants to use her music to show her audience that God loves unconditionally and whether they are experiencing hardships in life or have well-laid plans for the future, He has something even better in store.
Valerie has been blessed with a remarkably beautiful voice, and has had the opportunity to play with and be mentored by several top Catholic artists. Her greatest joy in music is leading others to fall more deeply in love with Christ through prayer and music during Adoration.
Worshipping God through music changed Valerie’s life, and she feels continually called to step outside her comfort zone and trust in Him. “When we step out in faith and put our hope in Christ, He makes good things happen beyond our wildest dreams.”
Valerie began playing music in college as student campus minister at Marymount University in Arlington, VA, where she majored in theology and religious studies. She took the classes required for medical school to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a doctor, but after graduating realized that the desire God had planted in her heart to lead worship was calling her to glorify Him through music. God continues to open doors for Valerie. She currently juggles time between leading music at Mass for George Washington University in Washington DC, leading worship alongside her husband, Rocco, leading worship with The Restless, a Catholic rock band, writing music, and being a new bride.
Family has always been important to Valerie. Valerie grew up in northern Virginia with her parents and older brother. God continued to bless her with overwhelming joy when she married her husband Rocco in May of 2012. They enjoy singing and writing songs together, and joining their prayers together through song has been an incredible blessing as they begin their marriage. (Rocco plays keys in The Restless and enjoys supporting and accompanying Valerie wherever God leads them).
Valerie seeks to remain faithful to God’s call and to continue to strive to hear and follow His will, remembering how good He has been to her. She can’t wait to see where He is calling her to go next!
