Listen to the Music ~ !!

NatalieGrant-Aug2010Here are just a few of the great recording artists out there in the music industry making a difference for Christ and writing inspiring songs to strengthen our passion for God and songs of worship to Him! Kathy and I recommend listening to Christ-following artists over secular ones as often as possible because music ministers to your soul and finds a place to plant seeds. We know it’s nearly impossible to avoid non-Christ-centered music and some of it is kind of fun, but what we listen to matters. We hope you’ll join us in enjoying the following. There is a lot of history in Christian music. Search current and past artists so you find the kind of music you enjoy because whether you enjoy the sounds of pop or gospel, hip-hop or alternative rock, country or folk – you can find an artist with the sound you enjoy who also loves Jesus, whether they’re on the radio or not!
