I Can Only Imagine- Movie about the making of the song

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.

The Garden by Kari Jobe

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.
