CD Review - Redeemer

About the CD: The latest album from the Nashville Tribute Band focuses on Jesus Christ by way of fourteen new songs composed as a tribute to the Savior. Each song presents a unique perspective on Christ through the eyes of those who walked and talked with Him, including John the Baptist, a blind man on the street, the woman taken adultery, the soldier and the thief at the Crucifixion, and the Apostle Peter. Several songs are written to be stand-alone numbers that focus on the big picture of Christ's ministry, and other songs are tender portrayals from unique individual perspectives.

  • My Review: I saw in the newspaper the other day that this CD was number 10 on the Billboard Christian chart and it's easy to see why. I loved every one of the songs. I liked the unique way that the Bible stories were portrayed on this CD, I never would have thought to have wondered what someone like Pilate's wife would have been thinking for example. I loved the fun country sound to the songs, there's even one that almost has a rap/country sound that I found interesting at first but really grew on me as I listened to the words and the meaning of the song. I felt like this whole CD is really capped off by The Greatest Story, I really loved this one and it has a really amazing message. This is the first CD by The Nashville Tribute Band I've listened to, but I'm definitely going to find their previous CD's when I get a chance and listen to the rest. I loved this one, go check it out for yourself!


    I was given a CD in exchange for an honest review.

    Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

    I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

    And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.


    About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

    SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

    For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




    This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

    I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …

    Worth the Wrestle

    About the book: Why can’t I seem to conquer weaknesses that plague me?” “How do I know if I’m receiving revelation?” “Will the Lord forgive me after what I’ve done?” “Why can’t we seem to get ahead financially even though we faithfully pay our tithing?” “What if the Church’s position on gay marriage bothers me?”

    Those are just a handful of the countless questions Sheri Dew has heard people ask over the years. “May I answer these questions,” she writes, “and any questions you may have, by posing a different question: Are you willing to engage in the wrestle? In an ongoing spiritual wrestle?”

    In Worth the Wrestle, Sheri examines the process of asking good questions—whether those questions be doctrinal, procedural, historical, or intensely personal—and learning how to get answers. She demonstrates how to live by faith while seeking greater light and knowledge. And she testifies of principles that are worth wrestling for and of understanding that can be gained in no other way.

    My review: Wow…
