Rick Warren Book: God’s Big Plans for Me – Review and Giveaway!

It’s always fun to plop down each night on the bedside with my kiddos and introduce them to a new and wonderful story from a special Bible themed storybook. This one is called God’s Big Plans for Me by Rick Warren. It is a devotional book designed for kids filled with 40 beautifully illustrated stories based off God’s Word. It includes many points of focus such as something to think about, something to remember, and a question to answer.
We have been reading it each night for about 12 days now and I have found it really captures the kids attention well. It shares just enough info based off the Bible stories covered that help students learn important key facts about those Bible stories without going too deep. if you have older elementary students, they will enjoy it and yet desire something that digs deeper, but this is still a great review collection of devotional stories they can read at bedtime. Younger students from toddler to early elementary will most likely benefit the most from this book.
It is a large hardcover book with beautifully illustrated pages. My daughter is 11 years old and she enjoys reading these short devotionals to her younger brother.  It’s a great idea for Christmas or birthday gifting. Enjoy!

Review and Giveaway for Jeremy Camp CD: The Answer

JEREMY CAMP “THE ANSWER”

To say that I was super excited and honored to get to review the latest Jeremy Camp CD called The Answer would be an understatement. In all my years of working as a blogger, I have found myself getting to meet many great music artists in person at various events and sometimes having the privilege to hear their testimony on a personal level. This was the case when I got to hang out with Jeremy Camp many years ago and actually stood beside him while he had me sign autographs (as a humble blogger!) while he signed autographs of his latest album that year. He taught me to use special silver or gold sharpies so they show up on dark colored objects, and shared lots of great tips.

Getting to meet him several times and hearing his music first hand was awesome, but it was his bits of testimony about all God helped him endure during his life that touched me the most. His fire and passion for living was amazing, and his strength of heart was so full that it gave off energy as if he was a light source himself. We all know WHO was creating that light source though, don’t we? It is the love of Jesus that shines brightly through Jeremy Camp and touches people no matter where he goes.

I really hope you’ll take the time to watch a few of these videos and enjoy the blessing of his inspired gift of music that God gave him. His music is a beautiful and harmonious reflection of that great light of Jesus even now in his 2017 album titled: The Answer. Guess what the Answer is about? You got it – Jesus! Once you are on the path to share the love of Christ with all your heart, it’s impossible to stop you! Jeremy knows how to spread the amazing love of Jesus and he has a very special gift of God’s love wrapped up in this awesome new CD for you this year! Don’t miss hearing ALL the terrific songs on his new album THE ANSWER!

All In! Matthew West CD Review and Giveaway

Kicking off our Holiday Tweet Fest #htfest with a very special new CD by Matthew West titled: All In! Come check out this amazing album filled with the glorious sounds of God’s blessings on a man touched by God’s gift of music. What a great way to Praise the Lord – with an album declaring you are ALL IN for Jesus! I just love it!

 Ready to face all of life going ALL IN for Jesus and living the life you were always meant to live? What an incredible collection of great songs that both encourage and refresh your spirit as you learn to let go of the cares of this world and trust in God alone. Some of my favorites were All In (of course!) and others like Dream Again, Mercy Is a Song, Broken Things, Becoming Me, and The Beautiful Things We Miss. I really (to be honest) enjoyed the entire album!
My husband likes guitar more where I tend to like the drums and a dance beat or pop style in music. In this album there seems to be more use of drums than some of his others (to my happy surprise!) which gives it a real upbeat flair and some cool keyboard/electronic sound inspirations that always excite my musically oriented son who loves to play keyboard and memorize Matthew Wests songs for playing in church worship on Sundays.
 
Try the new Matthew West Album All In and be inspired!
Matthew’s heart behind the album:
Matthew wrote his new album All In with the goal of encouraging himself and others to get up off the sidelines of their faith and really live it out – to go all in in your time with God, all in with your family, all in with your community, and all in battling your fears that may hold you back from becoming who God made you to be. Along that same theme, Matthew will be launching a 6-week All in Challenge on his social media starting 9/18, and each week Matthew will be challenging his fans to go all in in a different part of their
lives. What does it look like when a heart that knows Jesus takes a step and holds nothing back? How can we go All In in the places that mean the most?

ALL SAINTS is a refreshing heart-felt faith-based film that all audiences can enjoy. It’s very essence is the heart of God caring for us – His children. He knows our needs, and He listens to our prayers. God provides for our needs and answers those prayers according to His perfect Will. Sometimes God calls us to do things in this world on His behalf that will not only affect our futures and lives, but also the lives of many others. It’s incredible to hear stories like this one in All Saints and learn again and again how amazing our God truly is.

Nichole Nordeman: Every Mile Mattered – Music CD Review & Giveaway!

It has always been a pleasure to do music reviews for you here at Love2EncourageYou. There are so many great and talented artists in the Christian music industry who create lyrics that just overflow with inspiration and encouragement from the blessings and trials they’ve experienced in life.

Today I have a heart-felt CD from Nichole Nordeman for you to enjoy! It’s titled: Every Mile Mattered

Some of you may have already heard the hit, “SLOW DOWN” on the Christian radio. She includes a new recording of that song on this album.

I’ve found that having the combination of reading God’s Word, prayer, and the sound of God inspired music can be a great combo over a relaxing cup of tea watching the sunrise for your morning devotions. Nichole Nordeman’s cd is both inspiring and calming in many ways. A great CD to listen to when reflecting after devotions and preparing for your day in the morning, or if you’re wanting to unwind after a hard day at work.

Here’s a glimpse at one of my favorite songs on the album: Listen To Your Life

I hope you will find it just as soothing and inspiring as I did! There are so few things in life that I take the time to enjoy amidst the hustle and bustle of caring for kids, cleaning house, work, and reaching out to others, but music has always been a source of peace and calming for me. Trust me when I share that this album is one of those go to albums to accomplish just that. Her gifts have been fine tuned after all these years of multiple albums and I really think Nichole Nordeman has offered us something special with this one!

For those of you who enjoy humor, my hubby was listening to the album with me during my review and when I got to that song, “Listen to Your Life”, he asked me this question: “So is that last song we just heard called, Listen To Your Wife?” I told him YES!!! lol.

Mandisa: Out of the Dark – Review and Giveaway!

IMG_8356

There’s just something incredible about God’s people being inspired to share what He has laid upon their heart and done in their lives to give Him the glory. Mandisa has already become a wonderful inspiration to many with her previous hit songs that our Lord had here share with the world.  Now she shares her heart and tells us the story of how God has rescued her from some of the darkest parts of despair in her life. Encouraging us to look to Him for guidance and trusting Him to be there for us always. Watch a short video of Mandisa sharing this story behind her new album here.

Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called ‘Out Of The Dark’ because that is exactly where God lifted her out of!
You can watch her talk openly about this on Good Morning America last week here.

No matter where you are in your walk with the Lord, or where you see yourself going in life, we all have a need for encouragement. Everyone can use a lift and a bright spot to help them through their day. This new album from Mandisa titled “Out of the Dark” can be that tool to help pull your down attitude into one of encouragement and gratitude!  Get your hands on a copy today and find ways to bless it to others as well. They will thank you!

I particularly felt blessed by this collection of “musical weapons against the enemy’s schemes” as you feel how much Mandisa pours out her heart to God in the lyrics. Her desire is to show us how much God truly loves us and rescues his children. We are NEVER alone during our trials or tough circumstances – God is there through the midst of it, gently guiding us through.

I always love songs that include other artists as guest singers or cameos so it was a joy to see so many great artists popping in for some of these great songs on Mandisa’s album such as Toby Mac, Kirk Franklin, Jeremy Camp and Britt Nicole!

Mandisa has a fantastic song on this album called “Unfinished” that I really think you’ll enjoy listening to. Check out the Acoustic Video for it here.

GIVEAWAY TIME!!

greeneyedbrunette

It’s always an amazing experience to find yourself so wrapped up in a book or a movie that you just can’t put it down or stop watching it. When it is a book or a movie about Jesus or God’s people sharing their testimony or who God truly is, then the plot just gets even more exciting to me and I can’t help but want to read or watch more. Today I have the blessing of sharing with you about a very special book written by Max Davis. Max is the author of 20 books and after reading his newest one, “When Jesus Was A Green-Eyed Brunette: Loving People Like God Does“, I’ll be looking forward to reading all the others too!

You just can’t put this book down!

Now, after you complete those two tasks… I want you to give the book away to someone else who needs to read it.

Best-selling author Max Davis challenges us to do more than simply receive God’s grace—we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us. As you read this book you will laugh, cry, and come face-to-face with the living Jesus, much like Davis did, when he found Him living in a green-eyed brunette.

Amy Grant: Tennessee Christmas CD + Giveaway

img_3445-2

It’s a great time to get together with family and friends and enjoy the holidays with one another! Why not pop in a new Christmas CD like the one we are reviewing today from Amy Grant! Her newest album “Tennessee Christmas” is a calm and relaxing collection just perfect to listen to by the fireplace on a cold, wintry day while sipping on some hot chocolate.

Amy is so warm and sincere in her messages here or there laced throughout the album as she shares little tidbits and thoughts as she remembers her father. It’s a heart-warming album that works well for those who prefer relaxation and ballad-style songs. Her voice is always so beautiful and the songs she included on this album offer nice memory-making melodies for the holidays.
