Whitney Wood | "Song of Restoration"

Singer/Songwriter Whitney Wood shares, "'Song of Restoration' is written from a place of immense loss. I have been struggling with chronic illness for the last six years and have had many conversations with God asking why? Most of the words were written on a car drive home after a painful day filled with questions and He reminded me of promises He had made years ago. I may have forgotten them, but He didn't. The words came out of me... 'This is a song of restoration, fulfillment of the waiting, returning what was lost.' Chronic pain has flipped my life upside down and has essentially been the death of many dreams I had once had. It has, at times, made me feel so behind and that I missed out on a life that would never come to fruition. Again, the words flowed 'What we thought was dead is now brimming with life, what was buried instead is now growing inside.' My prayer is that this song reminds you that God is always moving even if we're in a waiting season. He has not forgotten you and he does not break His promises. It might look different than we think, but God always brings beauty from ashes and takes us on a journey we couldn't even imagine possible. Whatever has been lost or broken in your life, God always restores and redeems what was lost."

Jaime Jamgochian | "All Things For My Good"

“I am so excited for this new season of music,” shares Jaime Jamgochian. “After overcoming some major health challenges last year, I wasn’t sure if recording music was in the picture for me ever again. But God is so good, and I pray that this album speaks to the hearts and souls of many.” Boston native Jaime Jamgochian found Jesus while studying at Berklee College of Music. After years of worship leading, songwriting, and battling lymes disease, Jaime is releasing powerful new music with the lessons learned through her life's trials. Her new single "All Things For My Good" points to Romans 8:28 singing out, "You're working all things for my good." Original Master MultiTracks for "All Things For My Good" are available now! Read below for the story behind the song Jaime shares with us.


When you are in the valley it is hard to see out. Everything is dark, confusing and most likely hope feels very far away. For several years I did not feel myself. I would press through touring around the globe and was part of the team pioneering an incredible church - The Belonging Co. in Nashville. I absolutely know the joy of the Lord was my strength to carry me through while physically always feeling off.

The end of 2018 came and I was hit with the worlds worst headaches. I cannot even describe the pain... all day everyday. After so many prayers and doctors, I learned I had a Lyme Disease infection that had gone neurological and my body had finally had enough. When you are my age and have to move out of your own home (my cute condo in Nashville) to live with your parents in Boston and stop working, that is A HUMBLING AND HARD SEASON! The pain was so bad at times I wondered if I could just go to Heaven. For a girl that THRIVES OFF HAVING PURPOSE AND VISION, this was not good.

Ben Calhoun of Citizen Way and Micah Kuiper of Hawk Nelson and I had written this anthem before Lyme tried to take me out. One day, while barely functioning, I pulled that demo up and let it wash over me. Tears began to run down my face as I was reminded of this simple yet profound truth. I did not feel it and barely believed it in the moment, but I knew God could work ALL THINGS TOGETHER FOR MY GOOD (Romans 8:28). Now a year later, after treatments at a Lyme Clinic in New York called Innovative Medicine and lots of prayers, I am beyond excited to have full LIFE & HEALING and to be releasing music again, something I had given up on.

How did He work those few hard year's for good? I learned about perseverance, choosing joy, long suffering and have a whole new outlook on fully living LIFE. I dealt with some lies I had allowed in with my calling in music and realized you have to stay true to who you are. I pray this song reaches other people who might be wading through a valley season.

Crossroads Music | "Trust" + Song Story

Crossroads Music shares, "The year 2020 is one that no person will ever forget. It was also becoming abundantly clear that through the uncertainty and divided times of our culture that our church is choosing to trust that God will guide us to a better future and will guide us to be better people. He's the God who has made a way for generations and He will continue to do so. With this in mind, we wanted to write a song that expressed our unified loyalty to this good shepherd. That even when we don't see with the clarity of what to do, even when we're uncomfortable with where we're being led, even if it comes to choosing death over life; We say, 'We trust where You may go / We trust in You alone.'" Below you can read the song story for "Trust" written by Robbie Reider.

Mark & Sarah Tillman | 2 New Songs

Husband/wife duo worship leaders, Mark and Sarah Tillman have recently released "Praise Is a Weapon" and "All the Way Back." Explaining the song story behind "All the Way Back", Mark and Sarah share, "Written in the middle of our family’s transition from North Carolina to Nashville, this song is about reflecting and reconnecting with the passion and devotion we had as new Christians and followers of Jesus. The bridge lyrics 'when enough was never enough, and the flame was never tamed' speak of an ever-hungry heart for God that was insatiable. Our prayer as people listen to and sing this song would be for them to experience an upwelling of desire to put Jesus back in his rightful place in their lives. We believe people will resonate with this song, especially Christians, because at one point or another something is always battling to take the main stage in our lives, that isn’t Jesus. We pray this song would be a tool to reconnect and re-seat God in each of our lives."

Pat Barrett - "No Weapon"

Isaiah 54:17a says, "No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment." Pat Barrett's newest single "No Weapon" sings out, "No height, no depth can overcome / 'Cause there's no weapon stronger than Your love." Worship leading resources and Original Master MultiTracks for "No Weapon" are now available!
