Good morning! Today, I'm giving away a copy of Laura Story's new CD, "Open Hands"!
It's very possible you've heard some of her music on the radio over the past few years. Some of her more well-known songs are "Mighty to Save," "Blessings," and "Indescribable," which she wrote for Chris Tomlin. If you're not familiar with Laura's music, you need to know that this CD is one you can have on any time of the day. All of the songs are pleasant to listen to; the music is consistently smooth and contemplative. Several top names from today's Christian music scene have helped on this album in one way or another, which adds another layer of depth to the project. Matt Maher and Matt Redman are among the songwriters collaborating with Laura. Mac Powell from "Third Day" is featured on the title track, and as soon as he starts singing it feels like you've known the song forever! There are also at least two old hymns that have been adapted into new songs, "My Jesus, I love Thee," and "O For a Thousand Tongues to Speak."
In addition to currently leading worship at a large church in Atlanta, GA, Laura is also an author, wife to Martin (a brain tumor survivor), and a mom of three, including two-and-a-half year-old twin boys.
The album is essentially one of worship, and Laura shares her thoughts on what that means to her:
“Worship at the very core of what it is is ‘worth-ship.’ It’s the easiest definition I’ve ever heard of worship. It’s giving God worth, and sometimes that means verbal adoration and praise. Sometimes that’s showing Him worth with our calendars and our checking accounts. No matter what it is, it always begins with open hands. It always begins with a willingness to say, ‘You are worth whatever cost you call me to give,’” she maintains. “Worship in its very core begins with surrender. That’s how we really show God that He’s worth it all.”
