This is super important because we’ve heard your story and we’ve heard how it is that God has allowed you to come to this place – but what do you want people to receive from this album? What do you want when they listen to the songs? What do you want to see happen; what kind of transformation; what do you want them to receive from this?

to whip you with this. Don’t take advantage of grace – that’s not really what it is, because you don’t own grace. We preach as if we have the time box on grace. It comes out of God’s love…
