Hillsong Live - Cornerstone - CD Review

Posted: 10 Aug 2012 05:59 PM PDT

Cornerstone was recorded in Sydney, Australia last fall with tens of thousands in worship at filled-to-capacity Allphones Arena. It captures the heart and sound of Hillsong Church globally representing the coming together of the Hillsong worship teams from around the world including Reuben Morgan, Joel Houston, Ben Fielding, Darlene Zschech and the international teams from London, Stockholm and Cape Town.

In their 21st Live release, Hillsong has brought us the cream of the crop.  Hillsong is known for having songs that are easy to sing to, relate to and have really resonated with many.  With their upbeat chorus's and phenomenal vocals, it's easy to see why these songs are routinely sung at worship services all over.  They sing to HIM, for HIM and it will reach in and grab a hold of you, uplifting you and filling you with His presence through them.  Their messages are unique with each song, from forgiveness to His love in a contemporary album that is sure to bring joy and peace to many.  This CD had it's own spot in my heart, as no matter what I'm feeling or going through, there's a song on here to remind me of my purpose and to praise Him and to have faith!

Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Review & Gi veaway

Posted: 10 Aug 2012 05:13 PM PDT

Every time I'm at the grocery, I see other customers with boxed milk in their shopping carts.  I always wonder to myself if it tastes that good compared to regular dairy milk.  Are there really that many lactose intolerant people?

Then I decided to take the bull by the horns and try it myself.  I was delightfully surprised! I'm not lactose intolerant, and neither are any in my family.  However, this non-dairy beverage has a a great taste - made from almond milk!  Now, I've never had soy milk, so I can't compare it.  However, I am a  2% milk drinker and I have to say that I really love the taste of Almond Breeze.  I like the regular over my cereal and it was a bonus to find out that it has much lower calories than regular dairy milk.

I've also tried the Vanilla flavor but it was too sweet for my liking.  We have plans on purchasing the chocolate flavor next, I'd like to try and make some pudding for a chocolate silk pie with it.  I'm sure it will be wonderful, but we'll see! Now, my family likes the variety that Almond Breeze gives us and we know that it's a healthier alternative to dairy milk.  A definite new addition to my refrigerator!

One lucky reader is going to win a free product coupon for their own carton of Almond Breeze!
