Review:: The Glo Digital Bible and The Mosaic Bible

I’ve written before that I love reviewing Bibles and I have two I’ve been using that are extremely useful and visually appealing.  While the Word of God is just as powerful in black and white text on thin white paper with red letters for Jesus’ words, it’s nice when publishers go a little further toContinue reading “Review:: The Glo Digital Bible and The Mosaic Bible”

Review :: Wonder of the World – Rush of Fools

By Clay W. Ginn Coming off a somewhat out of nowhere debut, Rush of Fools returns with their sophomore release, Wonder of the World.

Review :: Hello Love – Chris Tomlin

By Alyssa Bjornstad Hello Love (sixstepsrecords) affirms yet again that Chris Tomlin is more than a songwriter and musician; he is a worshiper.

The Thrill of the Puddle Jump

I find summer storms thrilling–the dramatic thunderolls, flashes of lightning, the downpour of rain, and the smell of the earth.  While the world is storming, suddenly I feel at peace.  Once the storm ends and the sun reappears, rainbows are scattered throughout the sky and huge puddles dot the earth.  Besides being a dramatic outletContinue reading “The Thrill of the Puddle Jump”

Roar A New Song

By Amy Sondova I’ve recently come to this startling conclusion–I don’t like worship music, at least most of it. I find the driving, happy beat annoying, the simple lyrics uninteresting, and the loudness of it all less than “worshipful”. I’ve always been a girl who thought God appreciated the simple song of a little childContinue reading “Roar A New Song”
