Book Review ~ This Is The Day By Tim Tebow

About the Book Beyond Tim Tebow’s exploits as a Heisman-winning football player, he is widely known and respected for his exemplary character and personal excellence, which have made him a role model for millions.

Album Review ~ Hiding Place By Tori Kelly

Category Religious/Christian Genre Gospel R&B/Pop/Soul Release Date September 14, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review Tori Kelly’s Hiding Place is rich with soul, vulnerability and truth. Her heart, lyrics and voice touch to the deepest parts, whether she’s hitting the highest notes or riding the lowest pitches. Clearly intentional and delicate about her theme, it is obvious Kelly aimed to inspire faith, hope, and love for the darkest of times with her story, as she boldly tells about the goodness and faithfulness of God in leading her through her toughest times and supplying her joy, strength, and love for God, herself, and others when she needed it the most. Kelly may have aimed to bless and inspire, but it’s simply impossible not to be entertained by Hiding Place, as each unique song touches on something that resonates on a personal level with most living souls. *Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. My gratitude to Propeller Consulting, LLC for a free CD copy in exchange for my honest opinion.  

Album Review ~ The Outcome By The Church Vessel

Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Rock/Praise/Worship Release Date September 21, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review The Outcome begins joyfully, inspiring a heart of worship and dance to God. The lyrics don’t hold back, reminding the believer of Who God is—His faithfulness and goodness! The instrumentals collide with the lyrics to create magnificent music of praise to the one true God. The Outcome album promises an indisputable message of faith, hope, and love—the kind that is joyous and unshakable—because it is found alone in God. The Outcome song (#3 & #4) summarizes the entire theme of the album beautifully. A powerful song of worship and victory that presents dauntless faith, fiery hope, and courageous love for God and people that preaches the truth and power of God’s glorious splendor, which overcomes the darkness and breaks every chain and sets free. In it is a message of the pathway to healing for every kind of brokenness, stronghold, and bondage through worship. The Outcome album is good music to soak your soul in as you pray, worship, work, go …

Album Review ~ Nobody Loves Me Like You Do By Chris Tomlin

Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Praise/Worship Release Date August 17, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review This softly worshipful but powerful praise & worship shows a heart that displays gratitude and satisfaction toward God with the finest of music, lyrics, and passionate voices. There’s a maturity to the tone of the music that reflects the truth that Tomlin has been doing this for a while; but this is also beyond fine-tuned skill; this is a person that has grown in their relationship with God. It is seen in the genuineness of his heart throughout the EP. It can’t be explained. Only heard and perceived. For an album that could easily lead you into a mode of worship, pick up Tomlin’s Nobody Loves Me Like You Do.
