Featured Songs

draw me a Map.

March 19, 2018

Once upon a time, I used to write blogs about songs that weren’t necessarily overtly or explicitly Christian and find Christian themes or messages in them. When I was a youth minister I always enjoyed having a night where we listened to seemingly secular songs and tried to find God in the lyrics. Ironically enough,…


not a bad Thing.

August 18, 2014

The Bright Maidens topic of the month (you’d think as a Bright Maiden I’d be better about participating each month, but…I’m not) is: “Write about a non-Christian song, movie, or book that inspired you spiritually or revealed something about God to you!” Normally something like this would be right up my alley. I’ve featured countless songs on…


a lot like Jesus.

July 23, 2014

Sometimes the devil sounds a lot like Jesus, telling me I’m not enough… I adore Ben Rector’s music, but the first time I heard this line I almost turned the song off. How could the devil sound like Jesus? That’s the trick though, isn’t it? The devil puts just enough truth in his pile of lies that his…


a lot like Worry.

July 21, 2014

Very, very rarely (perhaps never) have I split one song up into more than one post. But “If You Can Hear Me” by Ben Rector is too good of a song to only devote one post to. Since last week I had a theme of not losing your voice and listening to the right voices,…


hold my Heart.

November 15, 2013

“Does anybody know how to hold my heart How to hold my heart? ‘Cause I don’t want to let go, let go, let go too soon I want to tell you so before the sun goes dark How to hold my heart ‘Cause I don’t want to let go, let go, let go of you”…


not my only Love.

October 25, 2013

I’m a junkie for love songs. However, as I’ve gone along down this road of life, I’ve also realized that a fair amount of love songs bug me. Why? Because they leave out God. While I love finding God in the lyrics of songs, the fact of the matter is that most artists leave God…


to get to You.

September 2, 2013

“You’re worth every hurt my heart’s been through I’d go through it all again, if I had to To get to you” – Kenny Chesney I suppose that once you’ve found that special someone lyrics like these make sense. You swear up and down and to the moon that all the struggle was worth it.…


forever mine, Nevermind.

June 24, 2013

“The best day of my life was on the day that I lost you.” -The Band Perry When you read those lyrics they can sound bitter, or they can sound sad. When you listen to the song “Forever Mine Nevermind” by The Band Perry, the song ends with this simple line, one that has been…


on my Way.

February 25, 2013

What on earth is going on with me lately?  I feel like every post I write lately is about either the single life or dating and relationships.  Maybe it is because it is February and the Valentine’s Day madness has turned my mind to a goopy, girly mush, or maybe God is up to something.…


giving it Up.

February 20, 2013

Just before Lent started my wonderful friend Liesl posted this blog about her quest (doesn’t that just sound so much more adventurous?) to give up non-Christian music for Lent.  I’ve heard of folks doing this before.  I have even known people who give up listening to all music during Lent.  In her post Liesl asks for suggestions…


past is Past.

January 23, 2013

Over the years, I’ve gone back and forth about Taylor Swift.  There are days I love her music and days I wish that the radio would never, ever, ever play one of her songs again…like, ever.  But then there are days when all at once one of her lyrics jumps out and takes me by…


living in the Moment.

October 10, 2012

Every blog title I could think of today is also a song that I love, so I’m combining an awesome song with a good ole fashioned blog.  The song is “Living in the Moment” by Jason Mraz. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2tPeFnIb_E]
