Matthew West – All In Album Review & Giveaway!

Have you ever given something your all? Given your family your all? Given your job your all? Given God your all? That is what Matthew West’s new album, All In is about! When writing this new album, Matthew’s goal was to not only encourage himself, but to encourage others to get up and really live out your faith.

I’m really enjoying this album and I can truly say that it is encouraging and a great group of songs to listen to when you feel like you need a push to live out your faith. My favorite two songs are Broken Things and All In (click on the links to watch a video about the story behind the song).

Laura Story “Open Hands” Album Review and Giveaway!

I’ve got another great album for you to check out! Laura Story just released her new album, Open Hands and I could not be more excited to share it with you! I knew I was going to love this album the moment I slipped it into my CD player and the first song that played was When Death Was Arrested. This is one of my FAVORITE worship songs right now, and her version is phenomenal!

Kari Jobe “The Garden” Album Review and GIVEAWAY!

Kari Jobe has just released one of the best albums I’ve heard in a while. The Garden, inspired by Jobe’s grief and transition as a new mother, experiencing the loss of her sister’s stillborn daughter (while Jobe was pregnant with her first child, Canyon), and her restoration from that grief through God’s promises.

The songs on this album are beautiful, you can absolutely feel the heartache, the triumph and the redeeming love of God in her lyrics and gorgeous voice. The namesake of this album, the song The Garden,  is an amazing song about how, just like in a garden that through the seasons change, wither and sprout back up again, we often find ourselves facing heartaches and hardships. But through it all, God lifts us up and brings us to a point where we are blooming again. It happens to the best of us.

 

Truly, the whole album is fantastic, you can purchase it on iTunes HERE or stream it HERE on Spotify! You can also enter below for a chance to win your own copy! It’s super easy to enter and only takes a few minutes! Winner’s entries WILL be verified. Good luck!

The Beginner’s Bible Review & Giveaway!

Now that Boogie is an excellent little reader (and she really really loves it!), I’ve been on the hunt for a book or curriculum to use for her Bible lessons. When I came across The Beginner’s Bible I knew that it would be perfect for her…. the book is a bible for little ones, with simple to read stories that go in the correct order that’s in a typical Bible. Boogie LOVES it.

There are some bigger words that she needs help with, but otherwise she can do this daily reading on her own, then discuss what she learned with me after!

The illustrations are bright, colorful and vivid, any child would enjoy glancing through the pictures even if they can’t read. These illustrations are fresh and new, but the book itself was originally released in 1989 and has been a popular book for many children ever since.

The Beginner’s Bible has a great website with games and activities for kids including printables of all sorts and videos to watch. You’ll also find some great resources for parents and teachers that coincide with each story in this bible. You can find that website HERE. Be sure to enter for a chance to win your own copy of this great bible, or head on over to Amazon to purchase! It’s currently on sale for $12.88!

In the Eye of the Storm

Music has always been my way of dealing with stress, anxiety and heartache. Whether it be me playing, or just listening. I can always count on a song to ease my burdens, God really speaks to me through music. This song in particular has been one I can turn to these past few weeks, because I know that no matter what we are going through, no matter how bad the storm is… God is there and He will bring me through. My only hope is trust in HIM.

Be blessed, I hope this song brings you as much peace as it does me.
