About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Nichole Nordeman The Unmaking review and Giveaway!

My Thoughts:

Sweet. Winsome. Soulful. Brilliant. This was my first opportunity to get lost in the magic of Nichole Nordeman's voice. She is captivating and her lyrics are catchy, meaningful and heartfelt. I played the CD while my family took a drive after church and no one said a word.  We all loved it! (Even my husband asked if he could borrow the CD. ) Family favorites were The Unmaking and Something Out of Me (faster tempo, fun to sing along along) and I also loved Not to Us that delivers a dreamy, reflective experience.

I was immediately swept away by the sound of Nichole Nordeman's voice and the words (which she helps write) stayed with me long after the songs were over:

(from Name)

You are still a promise
The heartbeat of God
You may have forgotten
But He has not
You are not your ashes
You are a flame
Do not ask the shadows
The Light of the world knows
Knows your name

Yes, her voice and music blew me away. Reassuring, worshipful, and full of hope. Have a listen above and you'll see what I mean.

About the new album The Unmaking:
"Before things in our lives can be resurrected and given new life, certain things must die.  Before beauty blooms in spring, roots must do the hard work under the hard frozen soil of winter.  Before you renovate and re-build, you tear down the parts of the structure that are weak or damaged or dangerous.  Before we make, we must unmake."  Nichole Nordeman
