Happy month of thankfulness everyone. As my wife and I stood looking over our deck into the back yard, I began to thank the Lord for His
beautiful creation. We watched the beautiful leaves of all different shades of colors fall to the grass in amazement. Not only is this my favorite season but surely the hand of the Lord has created the most amazing world. If you’ve ever wondered if there was a God, look around. He shows us in His creation. Happy Thanksgiving!

Chris Tomlin was born in east Texas on May 4, 1972 and he grew up listening to country music by bands like Alabama. His dad taught him to play guitar and he wrote his first song at the age of 14. Saved as a child, he always knew that God had a specific plan for him, but he couldn’t see what that was beyond following the Lord. He finished high school and enrolled in college, graduating with a degree in Psychology.
It was at that point that he started spending a lot of time with Passion founder, Louie Giglio. He took a big step of faith and became involved in the first Passion conference in 1997.
The rest, as they say, is history.”
When I hear the name Chris Tomlin I immediately think of the song ‘Our God.’ Our God was my faith anthem. Whenever I felt my faith was being tested or when I simply wanted to remind myself of the power of my creator, I would sing the lyrics to that song.
Tomlin is one of the greatest worship leaders, song writers and contemporary Christian artist of all times.
If you have attended church for any amount of time or listened to any amount of Christian radio, you have heard at least one or two of Chris Tomlin songs.
Tomlin’s latest project is titled Holy Roar and is filled with more dynamic songs with powerful lyrics such as the title song “Holy Roar”, Nobody Loves Me Like You” and “Is He Worthy.”
If you by chance have never listened to a Chris Tomlin song, I would encourage you to go back and listen to all of his older music as well as pick up his latest project. Chris Tomlin’s music is available on all digital music outlets.
For King & Country
“Soaring melodies, driving rhythms, theatrical instrumentation and personal themes were the heartbeat of for KING & COUNTRY’s sophomore album, Run Wild. Live Free. Live Strong.
The duo, comprised of Australian brothers Joel and Luke, have accomplished several notable feats on their new record. Perhaps the most remarkable is that the award-winning rock/pop duo has achieved the unexpected.
Not only have they ventured into new musical territories with some of the highlights being a collaboration with hip-hop artist Andy Mineo, their continued creative partnership with artist/producer Aqualung and their discovery of new soundscapes with producer Tedd T. (MuteMath) as well as Seth Mosely, but for KING & COUNTRY also managed to surpass the bar that the brothers had set for themselves with their debut album.”
As I sit here listening to their latest project “Burn The Ships”, I find myself intrigued to listen to the entire album. Throughout the project I realize I’m listening to faith-building lyrics that make faith-building songs.
The title song “Burn The Ships” has destiny changing lyrics. “Step into a new day. We can rise up from the dust and walk away. We can dance upon our heartache, yeah. So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships and don’t you look back.”
Go check out their newest project. All of for King & Country projects are available on all digital music outlets.
