The last few weeks, we have been privileged to review Every Mile Mattered by the talented artist Nichole Nordeman. On this album, Nichole reflects over the miles she has traveled in life - the memories she wants to treasure, the trials she'd like to forget, everything that has made her who she is now. This is a great listening album for me. Nichole has a beautiful, clear, mid-range voice that communicates her powerful message, accompanied by excellent instrumentation.
From the Capitol Christian Music Group website:
This album is all about the journey, the ups and downs of life, and not looking back with regret, but with thankfulness that God was there at every turn. "In the hands of Jesus, every one of those miles brought me to right now. Nothing wasted. Every mile mattered."My favorite song on the album has to be "Slow Down," the beautiful duet with her daughter, Pepper Ingram. (Nordeman is Nichole's maiden name, which she has kept, at least professionally. Her husband's and children's last name is Ingram, which is my maiden name, so that holds a special place in my heart!) The beautiful ballad with the lovely piano is nostalgic and pleading but not sad. If only we could all slow down how fast our children are growing up and growing away from us - this hits close to home as my oldest heads for college next weekend! And how our children long for us to slow down and spend the valuable time with them!
Whether you grew up in a Christian home and church, came to Christ later, wandered away from Christ and came back, or haven't found Christ yet, this album has something to say to you. Jesus can work through every mile, every circumstance in your life. Listen. Let Him speak to you.
