ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Michele...

"When I first started writing these songs, I had no thoughts of recording an album. I was (and am still) living in Siberia, and I wrote songs because, to borrow Rich Mullin’s expression, I had to write them. I was writing for myself, not for an audience – unless of course the audience is God. I write to understand what I am reading in the Bible, and to understand what it has to do with me. I write to understand what I’m feeling. I’d like to think that writing helps me to understand - in a limited way of course – that which cannot be understood - like the love of God.

One of the recurrent themes for me while living here has been the struggle in learning to love and give yourself for/to others. Of course that isn’t something specific to Siberia, and there are other places and situations where the struggle is much more intense. I almost said “and more at stake”, but I can’t say that, because PEOPLE are always what is at stake, no matter where, no matter what the situation. It is the cost to oneself that varies with each situation.

These songs aren’t about where I live. I wrote most of them while reading through the gospel of Mark, and each song explores from its own perspective the implications of attempting to really love others (wherever one may be), reflecting both what I was reading in the Bible and what I was experiencing or feeling at the time. The song order is intentional, giving direction to the exploration so that it is, in the end, a journey that leads somewhere – like learning to love should be. I hope that the songs will encourage others who are learning or struggling to learn to participate, at least in a small way, in the love with which Jesus loves - in the love of God."

Listener Review

"I wanted to give this some time to sink in. It's really beautiful, Michele. This is very good! It coheres nicely around the theme of God's building his kingdom in small, unexpected ways--including, of course, choosing to use us to fulfill God's plan. One of my favorite songs is "More." First, I like its connection to the title track... I see what you mean when you say that the songs should be heard in a specific order. But when you turn it around to yourself--"I want to be more than I am, too"--it's deeply moving.

In fact, the songs that speak to me the most are the ones on which you're most vulnerable, when you make that explicit connection between the scripture and your life: "my little world is so small these days," etc. Who in ministry cannot relate to "You Know Who I Am"? I love the repetition of the "if" statements followed by, "What is it to me?" Good, powerful message. My favorite song right now is the last one. Of course, any song that begins, "There's a certain amount of happiness in being unhappy," is onto something!

You have a good ear for a tune. These vocal melodies are strong. And I like your voice. It sounds a bit like Patti Smith to me--which is a high compliment!….I hope you feel very pleased with this album. I look forward to hearing more."

Deep and Beautiful
The songs on the CD are deeply moving. When I listen to them, my heart gets filled with gratitude for Jesus' love and His sacrifice. They are very inspiring and uplifitng. The ones that especially touch my heart and fill my eyes with tears are You're Looking At Them and Go Down There. Thank you, Michele!

Fabulously Beautiful Harmony of Melody and Lyrics
This CD has been the most positive surprise to me. The melodies are beautifully uplifting and calm, with such a happy upbeat tone to them. Yet the lyrics touch deep into my soul as a believer and mother. I love that Michele has used Scripture directly in her songs and expresses her love and wonderment of our amazing God so truthfully. I have had this CD playing in my car since last summer when I got it and cannot have enough of "Little Things." I have now learned many of the lyrics and it makes listening to this CD even better! I am not a good singer, but with the volume turned up I feel like a female David myself, singing my heart out to God! A great buy!

Great depth and great music
I truly love this CD. It is like one long song to the Lord. I like how it gives me new perspective on Bible verses I have known for years. The words are like poetry. I think my favorite is still What Loving Others Means, but I have a special fondness for all of the songs. All of them are different and beautiful in their own way. All of them glorify God. The artist's goal is obviously to lead us into worship, and for me she has succeeded at that for sure. Thanks, Michele! I am looking forward to the next one!
