What if you took the lid off your life and just grabbed everything you could around you and used it to help someone else find joy and hope in their life? What if there were no preconceived ideas about how we help to bring the hope of God into the heart of someone who's empty and hurting? When this record came together that's what Steve Hare said "I felt, like I just took the lid off my life and let God pour opportunity into my soul! He pulled in new ways on my own heart strings resulting in this new record, Heart Like Your Own.
The first song out is the newest single release, "A Heart Like Your Own," with it's fun, pop beat also beats the strong message of just how much we need to let God have control.
"When God gets to bust our typical rhythm, He makes us into something better than we thought was possible. It's the God-addition that makes someone the person they are meant to be," Steve says. "When Seth Mosely, my producer, came to me with this song, I couldn't stop singing the hook: 'Take my heart won't you break it a part and replace it with a heart like your own.' It's really the bottom line of who I am and the message I want to share. We have to give it up to God, everything, because if we don't we'll never know what it's like to take the lid off and get free from the things that hold us back, like ourselves, opinions, people, the status quo. We can grab on to so much more and really reach out to help someone else, when we are empty of ourselves and full of God."

I find the album interesting. It's not great, but it can be good as background music. It's not as powerful and "happy" as tobyMac, is much more soft. But overall, it's good music.

Fun, poppy, spiritually uplifting ... this guy is awesome! I wasn't sure what to expect when I first clicked over to the free streaming album, but Steve Hare's sound pleasantly surprised me. It's like a sonic mix of Newsboys' "Born Again," Matthew West's "Something To Say," and TobyMac's "Eye On It" albums. Like I said, I was pleased with what I heard. :)
