 "I missed the grammys… and I won?!?!?!?!" ~Mandisa

 

“Don’t fall in love with this corrupt world or worship the things it can offer. Those who love its corrupt ways don’t have the Father’s love living within them. All the things the world can offer to you—the allure of pleasure, the passion to have things, and the pompous sense of superiority—do not come from the Father…” 1 John 2:15-16a (The Voice)

"I knew that submerging myself into an environment that celebrates those things was risky for me at this time. I am taking steps to renew my mind to become the Heavenly Father-centered, completely satisfied with Jesus, and Holy Spirit-led woman I felt I was a few months ago, but I’m feeling a bit like an infant learning to walk again on shaky legs. Perhaps being alone with Him as my name was announced was protecting myself from where my flesh would have tried to drag me had I been up on that stage. It gave me time to focus. With what I do for a living, and the doors that have opened for me to sing about Jesus on mainstream platforms, I take the phrase from John 15:19, “be in the world, not of it” seriously. God never taught us to stay in our safe Christian bubbles, completely separating from those who do not share our faith (see 1 Corinthians 5). After all, how else will people come to know Him, if not by His children? We must live, look, and speak differently so that we shine (seeMatthew 5Philippians 2, and 1 Peter 3)! I can’t force my morality on anyone else. What I can do is live my life in such a way that reflects well on my Savior, stand firm in my values, and do all of these things in love.  If God can use this Grammy win to advance His Kingdom, I’m all in!"  ~Mandisa's Blog

"Son of God" the Movie & Tour

"Son Of God" movie trailer featuring For King and Country … "Hope is What We Crave"  

Remember "The Bible" mini-series that was a hit last year?  Well, now there is a movie!!!  

"'Son of God' comes to theaters February 28, 2014. Now, the larger-than-life story of The New Testament gets a larger-than life treatment in the stand-alone feature SON OF GOD. Told with the scope and scale of an action epic, the film features powerful performances, exotic locales, dazzling visual effects and a rich orchestral score from Oscar®-winner Hans Zimmer. Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus as the film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection. It marks the first motion picture about Jesus's life since Passion of the Christ, released ten years ago."  ~20th Century FOX

Driving To Chemo

"This is called "Hope" (Driving to Chemo) 

 

It's for an Air1 listener. And maybe you.

 

A woman named Susie, a young mom of two, called into the show, and let us know that she was driving to chemo, and how she appreciated the encouragement from the station. And how she so needed to hear God wasn't going to leave her.

 

We started thinking, "What if we could make something for her to listen to, SPECIFICALLY for the drive to chemo? Something just with scriptures to remind her of the love of God, and how He's not letting her go? Something she could just pop in her CD player or iPod...?"

 

So I asked David Thulin, an artist/producer, if he had any music we could use. When he heard the story, he said he wanted to compose something entirely new for her. So he wrote this, and we added the scriptures.

 

You can download it here, if you want it. And if you know anyone who has they're own "drive to chemo" moments, and want the intro personalized for him or her, let us know. We can send it along." ~ Brant

Britt Nicole Flash Mob

More than 60 flight attendants from Shanghai International Airport performed a flashmob dance inside the terminal!  And the song they are dancing to is BRITT NICOLE "All This Time"  SO COOL! Their flash mob dance was their way of celebrating China's spring festival, a traditionally busy travel time.
