Album Review: Mandisa Out of the Dark Deluxe Edition

Out of the Dark, Deluxe Edition Album

Mandisa’s new album, Out of the Dark, is uplifting and inspirational!  Every song on this album has a powerful message and will touch your heart.  Mandisa’s lyrics and beautiful voice speaks the pain and depression she was experiencing during a difficult time in her life.  The words in these lyrics also speak hope and of the love of Jesus.  Mandisa’s voice is full of passion, faith, and honesty.

I loved every single one of these songs on this album!  The song, The One He Speaks Through is one of my most favorite songs on this album for its uplifting message and truth of how we can bring God’s love to one another through our words and actions.  Mandisa is one such person, who has been used by God to speak of His love, strength, and truth through her powerful songs. 

I recommend that you make this album a part of your worship library. Mandisa’s new album will definitely strengthen your walk with God.

Book Review: Unashamed: Drop the Baggage, Pick Up Your Freedom, Fulfill Your Destiny

Unashamed:  Drop the Baggage, Pick Up Your Freedom, Fulfill Your Destiny

Author:  Christine Caine
Publisher:  Zondervan
Pages:  224
Audience:  Women
Genre:  Christian Life/Spiritual Growth

Shame.  It is a powerful and all-encompassing feeling that can hold us captive and impact our lives so completely and negatively.  Shame is the topic of Christine Caine’s newest book.

Christine Caine discusses very candidly about her experiences with shame and how it affected her life.  She also discusses how her decision to follow God changed these shame messages.  Christine Caine details how God delivered her from the feeling of shame and gave her a new, God-given vision for her life.  Mrs. Caine details how we can overcome these shameful messages in our lives, by depicting the ways in which God worked in her.

Christine Caine writes about how shame keeps us from trusting God and others, and she reveals the truth, God did not create us to live a life of slavery.  God is light, let Him in because He will love you and chase that darkness of shame away.

The message in this book will positively impact your life.  Christine Caine is real and relatable.  This book made a wonderfully positive impact on my life and I feel it would make one for everyone who reads it.

Happy Reading!
