I Can Only Imagine the movie about the making of the song by Mercy Me is a campaign through Flyby Promotion. All opinions are my own.
I remember the first time I heard the song I Can Only Imagine by Mercy Me. I was sitting in youth group and the song came on. It really got me to thinking and I loved the song. I was at the age where I was trying to figure out this thing called Life. This song had me thinking what it would be like to meet Jesus in Heaven.
The movie is the behind the scenes look at how the song was written. The song was written by lead singer of Mercy Me, Bart Millard.
Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for Bart. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury—combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential—set Bart on a musical pathway.
Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road on an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe—named for his grandmother’s favorite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined.
Having a favorite song and then learning how that song came to be is an exciting event that we do not get to have very often. I am so looking forward to taking my teenager to see this movie.

Adored 365 devotions for young women is the perfect Christmas gift for that young women who is wanting to get closer to God. The new year will be here before you know it and would be a great time to start a new journey. Each day starts with a verse straight from the Bible and then a short devotional that speaks to the young women of today. Day one talks about feeling awkward and everyone feels that a some point in their lives. Then it talks about how God does not think we are awkward and we are made especially by him and he knows our name. I feel this a great message for anyone but especially young women who are trying to find themselves in this world that sometimes can be cruel. At the end of each devotional is a place to write your thoughts.
As a mom of a teenager, I find this book very helpful. It talks about fitting in, bullying, internet and many more issues my daughter has to deal with each and every day. I am giving it to her for Christmas so she can start the new year with a great book to help her be more closer to God. I love that it is written in terms that today’s youth can relate to.
Once again if you are looking for a perfect gift for that young women in your life this book would be wonderful.
I am so glad I was given the opportunity to get this book and share my feelings about it with you.
I teach at a Christian preschool and I am always looking for new and interesting books to use with my students. I was given the opportunity to review the book God’s Great Love For You. The illustrations are very bright and well done. The colors are bright and the pictures are big. There are not a lot of illustrations on each page which helps the little ones to keep focus on what is being read to them. I read it to my students and they really enjoyed it. We have read it so much that they are starting to know the words and what comes next. I love that they liked the book so much that they are telling me when I miss a word in the story.
I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone with children that you are trying to teach how much God loves them.
We always seem to be on the go as a family. I have a teenager who is very busy with school and after school activities. I teach so I am very busy as well. My husband works nights so we have a hard time finding time as a family to do anything. I did not want our busy schedules to come in between our Bible studies. The one thing all of our family members have is our phones. I was offered the opportunity to review the app Awakening to God . I was excited to have the opportunity to try this app.
About the app:
A devotional journal to help you enjoy your walk with God, with thanksgiving from your heart, everyday touches and prayers. Inspiration for 8 minutes with God at the start of your day, learning to hear His voice, memorize scripture, pray and journal. Lots of great ideas to build your faith, share scripture, encourage others and strengthen family devotions.
Purpose of the app:
to inspire and encourage thousands of people in their walk with Christ (hopefully, leading to another ‘Awakening’ – see 2 Chron 7:14)
My Opinion on the app:
I love the app. It is something that only takes 8 minutes a day to grow closer to God. I like that it is on my phone and I always have my phone with me. No matter what I have to do that day I know I can still get my daily devotional in. I like the journal aspect of it, so I can write my feeling down and what I think God is telling me that day and I can always look back on the past days to see what was going on that day.

I grew up watching the Smurfs every Saturday morning. I looked forward to it every weekend. That was back when cartoons were shown on Saturday morning, before the cable stations that show cartoons all the time now. I loved that it showed kindness to everyone. Even when Gargamel is giving them trouble trying to catch them, they show him kindness if he is trouble. I loved watching the relationship they had. I also loved introducing them to my daughter.
We will be going together to see them at the movie theater on April, 7th. Watch below to see the movie trailer now. It looks like it is going to be a great movie.
About the movie:
I look forward to seeing the Movie and hope you enjoy it as well. Maybe I will see some of you at the movies on April 7th.
Grammy nominated Kari Jobe is the premiere female worship leader in Christian music. Coming off her last album, majestic which featured the worship anthem “Forever” and radio hit ” I Am Not Alone” Kari Jobe has returned to the studio to record her new album, The Garden full of new worship anthems for the church and for personal reflection and prayer. She found the inspiration for this new music from lifes joy of having a new son and the life hardships, her sisters loss of her daughter. Though it all Kari relied on her love of God and the foundation she had built with the Lord to get her though it all.
We loved her new album in our house. The words are meaningful and they will move you in different ways depending on what you are going though in life right now. My teenage daughter loved the song The Garden. The first time she heard it she just sit with her eyes closed listening to the words of the song. It was such a blessing watching her get joy out of the music.
We received the album in exchange for my honest opinion. I love this album and excited that she is coming to Nashville in concert. To see if she is coming to a town near you please follow this link.
