My Thoughts:


I wasn't familiar with Amy Grant prior to this album. I mean, I had heard of her and probably heard some of her songs (because she is so popular), but I didn't really know her music. I didn't know what to expect from Tennessee Christmas, but after listening to the entire album, I have to say I'm a little disappointed, because it's not something I will probably listen to much again.


I liked the song Christmas Don't Be Late and I liked the personal talking during some of the songs; but, Joy To The World, which I thought would be my favorite of the album, was just too slow of a version for me and felt sad/melancholy.


Overall, I'd have to say that, for me, the songs on this album are just too sad/slow and don't really give me that "Christmas" feel I like in Christmas music. If you are a fan of Amy Grant's music, perhaps you'll like this album...it just wasn't for me. :/

Review: Always on My Mind by Susan May Warren



About the book:
Come home to the Christiansens’, where faith and family meet real life.
After a failed dig in Honduras, aspiring archaeologist Casper Christiansen heads home to Minnesota to face his unresolved feelings for Raina Beaumont, the woman of his dreams. But when he arrives unannounced on her doorstep, he receives the shock of a lifetime: Raina is pregnant with someone else’s baby. Heartbroken, especially when he discovers the identity of the baby’s father, Casper tables his dreams and determines to be dependable for once, helping his older brother, Darek, prepare the family resort for its grand reopening. Casper longs to be the hero of at least one family story, but a never-ending Deep Haven winter and costly repairs threaten their efforts―and the future of the resort.

Worse, one of Casper’s new jobs constantly brings him into contact with Raina, whom he can’t seem to forget. A tentative friendship begins to heal fresh wounds, but can they possibly overcome past mistakes and current choices to discover a future together?
