Prepare Him Room

As a mom who is a librarian, one of my strengths would be introducing my kids to books.  :)  And every Christmas season, I pulled out the stops - everyday we would read a Christmas book and share the fun together!  But I also loved sharing Advent with my kids.  And I was always on the lookout for new and fun advent books/ideas.  I was asked to review, Prepare Him Room, this fall and am thrilled to share that this is a great one! 

This is one of the best laid-out Advent books I've seen.  It tells you exactly what you need to lead your family each day all the way down to songs to sing.  It is clearly an Advent book that anyone could take and read and put into action....no teaching background required!  And what I loved is that there are some new, clever ideas - and that's big coming from me - we've used A LOT of Advent books over the years!  Enjoy the Christmas season with your family - and start some new traditions this year!

Holy Roar

Everytime I hear Chris Tomlin has a new album coming out I worry that there is no way songs will sound new and different.  So I apprehensive when I was asked to review his latest, Holy Roar.  But man, he just keeps them coming bigger and better.  I absolutely love the opener, "Holy Roar"...it's poignant...it will make it's mark.

You may have already heard "Resurrection Power" on the radio - I think that title released a bit earlier and it's catchy and a powerful reminder of our freedom in Christ.

And don't miss "Satisfied" - another favorite track on this album.  Tomlin has a good thing going - his songs speak to the soul and remind us of the greatness of our God.  And his latest is NO exception!
