Seeds of Faith CD Review

I was chatting with the junior high age daughter of a friend recently about memorizing Scripture.  I mentioned that I attempt to have Mister and Sister memorize one verse a week, and she excitedly said, “We (my brother and I) love the Seeds CDs for memorizing verses.  It makes it so easy and fun.”

I had NO idea what she was talking about, but didn’t want to look like a dumb adult, so I kept my mouth shut.  Later, I asked her mom what the Seeds CDs were, and she pointed me to the Seeds Family Worship site.

When I visited the site, I couldn’t believe the veritable treasure trove of help that was before my eyes.  One of my children memorizes Scripture quite easily.  The other?  Not so much.  That child, however, loves to sing and can memorize a song in nothing flat.  I could use these CD’s to help BOTH children.  SCORE.

After looking at the tracks, I was initially most interested in the Seeds of Faith CD and the Seeds of Courage CD.

After listening to the Seeds of Faith CD, I want to add the whole Seeds of Worship library to my music library.  These CD’s are great for the kids, but they are great for ME, too!  The cool thing about the Seeds Family Worship CDs?  I mean, aside from the fact that they make it easy and fun for the whole family to hide God’s Word in their hearts?  Each package contains two identical CDs – one to keep and one to give to a friend.  Now THAT is planting seeds!

The Seeds Family Worship CD’s are available at in the Seeds Music Store, on Amazon, and at Christian retailers nationwide.

Hear Me by Kyle Sherman

One of my favorite quotes is that “Music is the prayer the heart sings!” I am clueless as to it’s origin, but I often use music as a portal to worship.  There is just something about singing to, and about, the Lord that softens the heart and allows one to hear from Him.  Such a powerful thing.

I recently had the opportunity to review a new CD, Hear Me by Kyle Sherman. Hubs and I often watch Lifechurch.TV, and Kyle Sherman was a full-time worship leader at their campus in Fort Worth, TX.  I knew that I liked his worship style, so I agreed to review the CD.

Hear Me Kyle Sherman

 

I was NOT disappointed.  The albums title song, Hear Me, is astonishingly poignant.  It certainly is a prayer the heart sings!

Hear me…
Hear me when I cry…
When I’m tangled up inside, hurting and empty.
Hear me…
When I get so mad at you, don’t understand the things you do, drives me crazy.
Hear me…
Hear me…
Lord, I need you near me,
Oh, hear me.
Hear me…
Hear me, Lord, I need your help.
I can’t do this by myself, Life gets too heavy.
Hear me, keep my children n your grace.
Guide them safely on their way. Show them your mercy…

It is one of those songs that you could listen to a thousand times and it speak to your heart differently each time.

The album is an eclectic mix of soulful worship.  It is contemplative, fun, and the music is technically spot on. The song Build It On the Rock has me dancing in my seat and doing some “Uh huh, oh yeah’s” every time.  LOL.

This is one CD that is sure to be a fast favorite.  The Kyle Sherman Hear Me CD is available on Amazon, on iTunes, and wherever Christian music is sold.

Cultivation Generation- My Foundation

In the 70s and 80s, when most mainstream denominations limited their worship to more traditional hymns, Vineyard Worship (formerly Vineyard Music) was using the unique nature of contemporary worship music.  Over the years, their music has gained a large following, and is now used by many churches.
Their newest album, Cultivation Generation- My Foundation, is a continuation of that tradition.
Track Listing:
Cultivation Generation My Foundation
My Soul Longs – The Neverclaim
Love Has Come, Love Has Won – Jesse Meyer
God Don’t Never Change – David Linhart
My Foundation – Anabeth Morgan
Let It Shine – Stephen Lampert
The Bridegroom – The Neverclaim
Your Kingdom’s Here – Jesse Meyer
Worthy – Anabeth Morgan
Life To Us – David Linhart
Enthroned On High – The Neverclaim
Walls Come Down – Stephen Lampert
They That Wait – The Neverclaim
Song Of Hope (Digital Bonus) – The Neverclaim
I will start by saying that I haven’t listened to any Vineyard Music in several years.  I have been listening to other albums, in more of the contemporary Christian category rather than the worship category.  So my music has been focused on mainstream artists such as Casting Crowns, Newsboys, Mercy Me, Jeremy Camp, etc.  I do have the Dwell Album from Vineyard (2003) and while it was great,  I haven’t listened to anything from Vineyard since then.
The Cultivation Generation- My Foundation album starts with “My Soul Longs” which I think was a great way to start an album with the mix of music that it has.  Whether it is a slower worship song, like,  “Let It Shine,” or the electric-guitar driven “The Bridegroom,” or the upbeat songs “Walls Come Down” and “Your Kingdom’s Here,” this album has a song that can mean something for everyone.  Every song in this album is powerful.  From a worshiper’s perspective, every song, in my opinion, is meaningful and authentic.  Each song can lead different people, regardless of the types of music they like, into worship just by listening to them.  The authors of this collection are Vineyard’s best musicians and leaders, which results in an album with tracks that are recorded flawlessly.  The live setting of the album does lend to a livelier sound and encourages the listener to join in worshiping.  It was also neat to hear a Vineyard rendition of “Song of Hope.”
All in all, if you are looking for some fresh, up-to-date worship, you should get this album.
Album available wherever Christian music is sold and on iTunes.
Learn more by checking out the Vineyard Worship Website, liking Vineyard Worship on Facebook, following Vineyard Worship on Twitter, or checking out Vineyard Worship on Youtube.
