I'll start off by stating that I am not one to pass judgment on music. To me, I either like them or not, and I usually can not explain why I do or don't. So, if you're looking for a review as to how the music is... this isn't it. What this review is will be my take on the cd.
This is the first time I've listened to an album or a song by Tenth Avenue North. Initially, listening to Healing Begins, I felt that it was just alright. Nothing special. Just another good, decent Christian song out there. Nothing worth keeping or even checking out.
But listening to it a few more times, the lyrics started drawing me in. The music, combined with the lyrics was what pushed the song beyond just another decent song. So, I felt that it earned a check out at the local Christian bookstore. And again, the music was decent. Nothing special. Nothing that automatically drew me in. But it was the lyrics that empowered each song, and ultimately the album. "You Are More" was the clincher for me.
I definitely recommend this cd as I feel it'll be one cd that I'll end up grabbing every so often for years to come.

This was a great book to read. It is simple to read with a simple message expressed through many simple examples that are easy to understand and even relate to. The message is simply Joshua 1:9 - "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; DO NOT BE AFRAID, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
And even though it is a simple read, with a simple message, one that we all need to be reminded of everyday, it simply and ultimately encourages you to trust in Him in ALL that you do.
When I was reading this book, I was going through some extremely difficult times in life. I was having anxiety/panic attacks and falling into depression, but this book, chapter by chapter, kept me going, kept encouraging me and kept my hopes up. It was a blessing to read and I encourage others to read it as well.
