Sunday Sounds: Mindy Gledhill Clips

Every Sunday I try to post something more spiritual in nature. I feel like this day, of all days, is a good time to reflect and meditate on our relationship we have with our Father in Heaven and His son, Jesus Christ. I most frequently share a song or artist that I love. Sometimes it may be a quote, scripture, short story or poem.

As Christians of different faiths, there may be some things that we don't believe exactly the same. But we all do believe in the atonement of Christ and God's goodness. We can appreciate similarities and overlook differences as we share and relate to one another. I will never purposely offend or push my beliefs on my readers. I do have links IF you're interested in learning more about my faith, or feel free to ask. My intention is not for religious debate or controversy. Only to share a spiritual moment in time.  ((HUGS))

I've chosen to feature Mindy Gledhill this week due to her new album being released this week! I am very excited! She has touched my life with her music and I hope you enjoy these clips and links!

The first song is from EFY 2004 and touches me as a reminder that when life pulls us down, we are never alone in our loneliness and trials. We are here for a purpose, no matter how small we may think it is, it is important.

This is a song I haven't shared before from EFY 2009. More Than the World is a nice reminder that the beauty around us is more important than things money can buy.

Her last indie album Feather in the Wind came out in 2008. (You can preview all songs on this album by clicking the album title.) This is a secular album, but her beautiful spirit shines through! In this clip, she talks about the motivation behind writing this song. It was a journey of self acceptance and love. A journey I frequently find myself on.

This song feels like my life theme song!! LOL!! The emotions of this song apply to every part of my being... I strive to make "friends with my reflection in the glass." So if you care to understand me better, watch  and pay attention to the words in this clip.

Her new album ANCHOR releases on Wednesday and she has the whole album streaming the full content from her blog if you'd like to check it out. I absolutely LOVE IT!! Most of my favorites can be found at the Our Stage Playlist. I Do Adore and Anchor are my FAVORITES!! 

All About Your Heart is the song she wrote for Stephanie Nielson and is only streaming on Mindy's blog.  It is beautiful and AMAZING! ESPECIALLY when you know the story behind it! I'm so excited it is on this album.

Mindy is doing a release concert tomorrow evening in Provo! Not only will Mindy be performing her awesome music, but Stephanie and her sis from CJaneEnjoyIt will be there, too! I've already rearranged an earlier family time so I can go... Anyone attending the concert can get the album early. YAY! She is so down to earth, has a lovely voice, and a real talent for writing music! She sings the soundtrack to my life! Looking forward to the concert and new album!
