Hey everyone, it’s been a while (at least in other blog series, while I methodically and steadily work on Flashback Fridays every week!), so let’s dive back into these ‘dormant’ blogs. And what do I have this week, that is so momentous and significant that it requires me to write a post, with the subject matter being relevant to three blog categories?

Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens. Last time, we unveiled our top fifteen inspirational U2 songs (in honour of U2’s new album The Joshua Tree (Super Deluxe) releasing this a few weeks ago- which we will review soon!). This time, in the same vein of the U2 post and the Peter Hollens post before that, let me introduce you to another new-ish favourite group of mine- Cimorelli, and post a few videos (from now and a few years earlier!) so that you guys can all experience the awesomeness of the inspiring group of six sisters.

Third Day have been around for donkey’s years. Since the mid 1990s when they released their self titled album in 1996 (which spawned the radio hits ‘Nothing at All’, ‘Forever’, ‘Love Song’, ‘Thief’, ‘Praise Song’ and the ever-reliable-at-concerts ‘Consuming Fire’), Mac Powell and the band have delivered heartfelt songs and emotive moments of poignancy to millions of listeners of their music throughout the years. Now in 2017, we see that the band have been around for 20 years officially (signed to Provident Label Group), and maybe even more than 20 years unofficially, considering that the band started even performing together without a label prior to the mid 1990s (I think in an interview, Mark Lee, guitarist, said that they played together as ‘Nuclear Hoedown’ in 1991 or 92). So what does that mean for a group that has shown us what it means to walk the line of rock and worship?

It’s been a while since I have last posted anything for Throwback Tuesdays, nor Top 10s for that matter, so I decided to roll them all into one for this week. As many are aware, Casting Crowns releases their new album next week, and if its anything like the songs “One Step Away”, the title track or “Oh My Soul”, then I reckon this new album will be one of my favourites for the year. Which brings me to my next point- Casting Crowns have been around for quite some time, since the early 2000s in fact. From then til now, there have been many radio hits and singles, and while each and every song by the band has ministered to many people, for me, some songs from the band have hit harder than others. Some have spoken directly to my psyche, as I am reminded about things of myself that I may not have looked at had I not listened to a certain song. So with the release of Casting Crowns’ new album, I have devised a list- 10 songs across the years that have impacted my life thus far. Criteria- one song per album that the band has released. It can be tricky, because if you were to ask me my top 10 songs of Casting Crowns that have influenced me the most, I’d say a fair few from The Altar and the Door, Come to the Well and Lifesong. Nevertheless, picking 10 songs from 10 or so years can seem difficult, yet below are 10 songs spanning a number of years, where each of these tracks have ministered to my life in some way. So without further ado, here are the 10 tracks.

It’s always good to keep up to date in terms of worship music. Yet in keeping in with the trends of the most popular worship song of today (we all know right now it’s “Good, Good Father”), we can sometimes miss the beauty that it is in listening to good worship music of years gone by. So this post will honour and commemorate worship songs of the past, in particular 2006. It was in 2006 that I started to branch out and listen to a wide variety of Christian music. So what are my favourite worship songs of that year? Read on to find out.
