Introducing Heather Williams...

I have the great privilege of introducing Heather Williams! Her music is absolutely wonderful. This Time Around is her first full album release. You have probably heard her top 10 song "Hallelujah" and the rest of the songs are just as great. Her songs are full of meaning and heart. You can feel the anguish and joy in the music and lyrics of each song. I hope you will watch the YouTube video and hear more of Heather's story. It makes her music even more real.

One of my favorite songs is "Hallelujah." Heather's story of her "Hallelujah" moment reminds me that in my deepest despair God is with me. The lyrics say:

But don't give up on me now
I'm so close to You now
I'm in need of Your grace today
Wipe the dirt off my face
Hold me in Your embrace
Your love always saves the day

During the past few years, as I have been searching hard for what the Lord has for me to do and seeking to serve Him with my whole heart and life I have fallen many times. I seem to constantly get it wrong or backwards. There is self doubt and dark times of uncertainty but I know the He is near and with each attempt I am getting closer to the prize. And His "love always saves the day!" I love to belt out this song in the car {alone!} and know that with each Hallelujah my will and His will are getting closer and closer to being the same.

The folks are Media Collective have provided me with a copy of Heather's new album This Time Around to give away. I know you will love it as much as I do!

THEO Giveaway!

What better way to start a new week than to giveaway a great prize?! Whitestone Media has allowed me the opportunity to give away a copy of their new release "Introducing Theo."  To enter leave a comment below before tomorrow night, October 11, 2011 at 11:59 pm CST. I will randomly choose one commenter to receive this awesome prize. Keep watch for more opportunities to win!

"Theo" is a great way to teach children the basics of the Christian faith. The series revolves around Theo, an Englishman, who tells bible stories to lay a firm foundation for the fundamentals of our beliefs. It is well illustrated and fun too. There are two little mice who get into mischief and end up very practically showing children how the lesson that Theo is teaching looks in real life. I loved the way God's Word is presented in this format. The segments are very short for very short attention spans also. There is also an iphone app. How cool is that?!

Don't forget to comment and leave your email address so I can contact you if you win!
