"Worship is my lifeline...in the craziness of my life, whether it's in real crisis or the 'fire drill' of getting my boys to school in the morning, focusing on the Lord through worship helps keep everything in perspective." -Kim Hill
The latest offering from the Grammy nominated, multi-Dove award winner Kim Hill is a beautiful reflection of a heart tempered by worship titled Surrender. Worship Leader magazine says, "Surrender is filled with redemption and tinged with doubt, yet it's God's perfect deliverance that resonates throughout making it among Hill's best work."
This is the fourteenth national release for the twenty year music veteran and Hill continues to offer what we've come to expect: a fresh perspective, great content and the deep, resonating vocals that is synonymous with her name. Surrender is her fourth worship CD, which was followed up her by her much anticipated holiday offering Real Christmas. In 2006, Kim released Broken Things which was a return to her rock roots with lyrics that highlighted the divine mercy she received while journeying through a difficult divorce and embarking on life as a single mom. Broken Things reminded many fans and critics of Kim's early work on her Grammy Nominated CCM classic CD, Brave Heart, as evidenced by the following radio interview.
"Empowered, loved, lifted-up, redeemed; these are the words that come to mind when listening to Kim Hill's powerful new CD, Broken Things. This CD is aimed at those who need encouragement- the lost, broken, forgotten women who have been discarded or shamed because of a failed relationship, or simply because of their own insecurities." (Deep Impact Radio quote 2007)
Kim was ignited with the desire to lead others in worship when Focus on the Family asked her to lead worship at their inaugural Renewing the Heart national women's conference held in Nashville, TN in 1997. She went on to lead worship for the rest of the conference series, impacting over 200,000 women during the four year run. "I'd always been a solo artist, so to encourage an arena filled with 20,000 women to sing with me to an 'audience of One' - rather than just sit there and listen - was an amazing experience," enthuses Hill. She's had the opportunity to lead thousands of women across America in worship since then, as well as several African women at a multi-denominational event in Nairobi, Kenya
Kim continues to be a "favorite" for organizations such as the MOPS National Conference, Moody Bible Institute, Billy Graham's Training Center at The Cove as well as for noted speakers and authors Max Lucado and Angela Thomas. Kim has also been giving a lot of attention to her own conference series, Every Woman's Hope, which was created with longtime friend and former Focus Women's Director, Lisa Harper.
Juggling the responsibilities of recording artist, worship leader, and single mother of two very active boys, Hill has found comfort and clarity in worship and encourages others through her music to do the same. "I think the trials of life help us see what really matters...they essentially illuminate our dependency on Christ and make His grace and mercy taste even sweeter. My personal journey has made me realize how desperate I am for the Lord to help me every moment of every day."
The interview was turbulent from the get-go| Posted April 20, 2018
The interview was turbulent from the get-go. Le Batard pressed Manfred on washington nationals jersers whether the commissioner atlanta braves jersers was aware that new Marlins ownership led by Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter planned to slash payroll. Manfred said he refused to be deposed, and that MLB does not approve operating decisions of individual clubs. Le Batard followed up by saying Manfred was starting with a lie, which Manfred took exception to, saying that he wouldn’t be called a liar.
If, semantically, what Manfred said was not an outright lie, it certainly does not appear to have been truthful.wholesale baseball jersers
After the interview, Barry Jackson of the chicago white sox jersers Miami Herald wrote, “Two people directly involved in the sales process said that Jeter and Sherman were required atlanta braves jersers to tell other owners their intentions with payroll during the approval process, and that they informed the other owners that payroll would be cut from $115 million to the $85 million to $90 million range, with $85 million used at times and $90 million other times in those discussions.”
Jackson later went on Spain and Fitz on ESPN Radio and reiterated this sourcing, emphasizing that the Marlins’ payroll slashing plan was labeled “Project Wolverine,” and that of course Manfred knew:
“He was totally aware of st. louis cardinals jersers it, and I think he was disingenuous in his interview with Dan Le Batard today. Now, you could parse words, and chicago white sox jersers say chicago white sox jersers that Manfred was correct in saying that he did not know that the Marlins specifically would trade Stanton, Gordon, and Ozuna, but for him to suggest that he was unaware colorado rockies jersers that there would be significant payroll slashing is simply chicago white sox jersers not accurate.
In order for Jeter and cincinnati reds jersers his business partner Bruce Sherman to get the team, they prepared this document, which was called Project Wolverine, for reasons unknown, and this document was circulated to potential investors — several of blue ervin santana authentic jersers whom ended up investing — and it specifically said that under his plan payroll would be cut from $115 million last season to $90 million this year. Major league owners were aware of this plan. So was Rob Manfred. This came up during the approval process. So, for the Commissioner, and all due respect to him, but for him to go on Le Batard’s show today and say that he was unaware of this plan simply rings not accurate to me.”
Le Batard, who was scheduled for time off today and all of next week, opened his radio show Thursday by saying, “It might be the last show of the year, or it might just be the last show forever, because this has been unpleasant.”
