Let the Future Begin – A giveaway!

Every January since 1997 there has been a conference for college-aged kids called Passion. And it’s always been a dream of mine to attend even though I’m now a little bit beyond college age. But just by a few or twenty years. The good news is it’s now simulcast every year so I can watch it from the comfort of my couch like an old person.

Here’s the thing about Passion, the teaching is phenomenal. But I think my favorite part is the music. In fact, from the moment I watch Passion every January I can’t wait until March when the new Passion CD is released because I know it will pretty much be my soundtrack for the rest of the year.

And this year is no different. I received an advance copy of this year’s Passion CD called Let the Future Begin and I’ve already listened to it about twenty or fifty-six times. It is so good and I know y’all will love it.

Here’s the best part. I get to give away five copies of Let the Future Begin today.

I’ll leave comments open until Sunday at noon and then choose the five winners using Random.org.

And if you can’t wait that long, then you can download it on iTunes right now for just $9.99.

  1. Maria says

    Current favorite song? The sound of silence??? Literally, silence.

    5 kids will do that to ya.

    I need some music to jam to with my 7 yr old though–that girl can sing. I need something that is fun!

  2. says

    Hmm, I’d have to say current fav is 10,000 Reasons. . .but I’m also digging a new song by the Rhett Walker Band.

    Hope you’re feeling better!

  3. Lisa says

    Hm.. Can’t decide if it’s good or bad that “I Can Do Anything” by The Fresh Beat Band is the first song that pops to mind. It is such a positive little ditty.

  4. says

    Current favorite song is “Move” by MercyMe because my 3 boys and I dance like crazy and make my 11 month old daughter laugh and clap!

  5. Leigh says

    I find myself singing Whom Shall I Fear? (The God of Angel Armies) pretty frequently these days. Also like Great I Am.

  6. Elizabeth says

    Right now my favorite songs are by Blue October, which a secular band – can’t get enough of them – but my favorite Christian song is Beautiful Life by Mikeschair. Thanks for the chance to win some new music!

  7. Lynne Beard says

    I woud love to give this to my college freshman daughter. Songs that touch my heart are acapella hymns – “How Great Thou Art”, “Beautiful Saviour”, “Amazing Grace”, “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”.

  8. Lauren says

    Oh, yay!!! I saw a tweet that this was coming out, and I got so excited!!!
    I have many favorites right now, but probably Chris Tomlin’s White Flag is at the top.
    We just got to see him in Dallas, and it was awesome.

  9. Vincent T says

    Steven Curtis Chapman – Do Everything is my current favourite song. SO catchy with a childish feel but a strong, powerful message to deliver!

  10. Samantha O says

    I don’t know if I can narrow down to a favorite song… Too many. However, I can say my favorite music genre is definitely worship music, which would make the Passion cd perfect!

  11. Nancy says

    Love all music, but the oldies are the best. I have a sign in my home that says “It Is Well” and I hum it several times a day, so guess it is deeply imbedded in my brain. “It is Well, With my Soul”. Thanks for the chance to win this CD.

  12. JennAynn says

    It’s hard to pick just one songas a favorite. So…if I had to pick, I think it would be the song”In Christ Alone”.

  13. Timothy W says

    I don’t really have a favorite song. But I do have some favorite artists; Todd Agnew, The Rhett Walker Band, and Jeremy Camp.

  14. says

    Wahooh! Thanks for the reminder.
    – I’ll avoid you having to put my name in the drawing, b/c on the 0.0000001% chance that I was selected, it would simply be a pain to have to mail it to me all the way yonder here across the globe.
    – My favorite song at the moment is a classical piece by Rachmaninov – Piano Concerto No.2. I know, I’m weird. I’ve been on a classical kick lately. It’s been ministering to my soul.


  15. marjie says

    I would love to win this for my husband. It is his dream to work at one of these events since we are WAY beyond college age!

  16. Tonya Weaver says

    “The God of Angel Armies” by Chris Tomlin, my favorite song right now. Passion was awesome this year. I’m W*A*Y past college yrs, but my friend & I volunteered to help while our high school seniors attended this event. It was unbelievable wonderful:)

  17. Jenny Friend says

    One favorite? One Thing Remains, is that the title? By Kristian Stanfield? Love all those Passion musicians!

  18. Jennifer says

    How fun -would love this. I love so many worship songs I don’t know what my favorite is. Anything Jeremy Camp, MercyMe, Cutlass…

  19. says

    Wow, that CD sounds really good! Nothing like some good praise music to get the heart and soul moving…I really like the one 10,000 reasons…kind of explains me right now :)

  20. Kim says

    “Where I Belong” by Building 429 – I LOVE to hear my kids singing this at the top of their lungs.

  21. Kaleesha says

    I love Rend Collective Experience’s Campfire album right now. The song, Desert Soul is pretty amazing.

    I also love Passion albums! Thanks for the giveaway.

  22. Lydia says

    Favorite song at this moment would be a song called Rose of My Heart by Johnny Cash. I’m recently married and it was our song.

  23. Kindra Murphy says

    My favorite song is the ones my husband makes up about our life. :) The tune always matches a song but he changes the lyrics to fit our situation. Most of the time they are really dorky but they bring so many smiles. (PS– I also LOVE “Redeemed”!!)

  24. Beth B says

    Oldies are my fav because I’m an oldie. For individual songs, Ave Maria always gives me goosebumps and, for secular, music from Les Miz.

  25. Lori H says

    Very curious to hear this CD! A favorite song, albeit older, is Mercy Me’s “I Can Only Imagine”. Gives me shivers every time!

  26. Sherri Len says

    Better than a Hallelujah by Amy Grant reminds me that God cares about little ol’ me, and that I’m not the only one who needs Him: a mix of comfort for me and looking outward.

  27. Mandy S says

    My 5 year old daughter and I have been singing the old hymn Count Your Blessings a lot lately. That’s the current favorite here. :-)

  28. Terry says

    10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) by Matt Redman – I’ve never had a song that stays with me like this one has. It is constantly on my mind and in my spirit and I don’t know how many times a day I just have to sing it aloud!

  29. rebecca says

    anything by Christy Nockels makes my fav list – and more recently I’ve had the band King’s Kaleidoscope on repeat.

  30. beth says

    Anything Britt Nicole, that chick is so cool and my 10 year old will make up routines to her songs. She even sang part of “headphones” to her class at school during music share time the other day.

  31. Susan in Indiana says

    I just had the pleasure of seeing Chris Tomlin in concert and loved God’s Great Dance Floor!!

  32. Megan says

    God’s Great Dance Floor – Chris Tomlin. Our church just did it this past Sunday and now I’m obsessed with it. Also love Moving Forward by Israel Houghton!!

  33. says

    Current favorite song has to go to Brit Nicole and her song ‘Gold’. It’s the first song I listen to everyday, and find myself dancing in the shower to (that’s more information than you wanted, but it’s truth)!

  34. Jessica Ray says

    My current favorite is “love come to life”

    I love the line “why don’t you break my heart ’til it moves my hands and feet”

  35. Colorado says

    I would love to give this to my daughter in college. My favorite song lately — Whom Shall I Fear

  36. says

    Perhaps I’m supposed to try to sound more pious than this, but my current favorite song is Daylight by Maroon 5. I promise I’m a real grown-up anyway. And I always love the Passion albums.

  37. says

    Right now, I love “Kings and Queens” by Audio Adrenaline — it’s made this adoptive mama cry so many times.

  38. says

    Girl, I need a new soundtrack! Time to take back the radio in the car! Because if I have to listen to “Call me maybe” one more time my head might explode!!!

  39. Amy in PA says

    Love the Passion CDs!! Current favorite sone might be Lay Me Down off the last Passion CD. Esp since we recently started singing it at church.

  40. says

    “Home” by Phillip Phillips is my go to song right now. But, after perusing the comments, it sounds like there are some new Chris Tomlin songs I need to check out!

  41. Jill says

    Can’t pick just one! “Great I Am”, “God of the Ages”, “The God of Angel Armies”, “You Are I Am” – they’re all good. Lots of good worship music that I love right now : )

  42. Courtney says

    If You Want Me To- Ginny Owens

    Anything- Mac Powell, Third Day

    These songs are straight to my core amazing!

  43. Cassandra says

    I LOVE the TobyMac CD Eye on It. Anything on there could pretty much be considered my favorite.

  44. Sara says

    Current favorite would probably be a Hunter Hayes song. He’s too cute and also rather talented.
    I hope you’re feeling better!

  45. Dawn says

    I’m really into 10,000 Reasons right now. but I also love, really love, old hymns (Come thou Fount, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, Amazing Grace, etc…) Oh, and I’m in LOVE with NEEDTOBREATHE! I could listen to them all day. They are considered “secular” but have a Christian vibe with songs like Washed in the Water and Lay ’em Down.

    • says

      Dawn, I’ve seen them in concert recently and they are good guys. Their musical ability is awesome! I will say it was the BEST concert I have ever been to! They started out Christian but went secular (I think) to make it bigger.

  46. Ina says

    God of Angel Armies has been on the top of my list since hearing Chris Tomlin live last year.

  47. says

    I think my favorite song right now is “Lord, I need you” by Matt Maher. It’s going to be on his new album coming out in April but the single is available now…

    This is my first time commenting and I have to tell you that I am almost done with “Sparkly Green Earrings” and love love it!! (my husband is a pharmaceutical sales rep so I had to read some of it out loud to him, you had him cracking up!) I think every mama has to read it!! :)

  48. Nancy D says

    All My Fountains by Christ Tomlin. Or, maybe Losing by Tenth Avenue North. Or maybe Thou O Lord by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Obviously I have trouble making a decision.

  49. says

    I currently have a weird song about Nehemiah stuck in my head (thank you middle school Sunday school!). Before that is was a One Direction song (thank you teenage daughter). Clearly I need some new music!

  50. says

    Loving ‘Come to Me’ by Jenn Johnson.
    Reading Sparkly Green Earrings right now too and loving it.
    Thanks so much!

  51. nlynch says

    You and Boomama should sign up as “Door Holders” and you can be a volunteer.
    I did this year and it was AMAZING!
    Your Love Never Fails by Jesus Culture is on constant repeat for me lately.
    Just finished your book and I loved it!
    Have a great Spring Break.

  52. Jessica W says

    A Long Way Home by Steven Curtis Chapman. I love the ironic whistling. Why shouldn’t we walk the long road of life whistling? Look where we’re headed!

  53. says

    Fav current song? Probably Chris Tomlin’s Angel’s Armies, or whatever the technical name is. I attended the Mississippi State baseball games this past weekend and one of our players walks out (when he comes out to bat) to that song. Been singing it ever since. Takes a big man to walk out to that song in college. I’m super proud!

    I also remember watching Passion on my computer this year and seeing Chris (I say that like we are BFFs) sing that song, and it was AH-Mazing. Would love this CD.

  54. says

    Favorite song today…”Awake My Soul” by Mumford and Sons.

    Had no idea that I could watch Passion – thanks for sharing!!!

  55. Jennifer P says

    Right now… Always, by Kristian Stanfill

    Also, I’ve been dying to get this album!!!

  56. Melinda M says

    Right now, all the songs in the musical The Story, I can’t begin to choose just one of the songs.

  57. Kayla says

    With a 6 year old in the house, all that comes to mind are Justin Bieber songs!! Can’t say I have a favorite, but can say I’d like to have something new for us to listen to together!!

  58. Katherine says

    I haven’t listened to Christian Contemporary for a while now – our local station plays the same thing over. and. over. and. over… I would love some fresh CC tunes! Current secular song right now is Carry On by fun.

  59. Sarah says

    Thanks for the giveaway – would love to have this CD in the car. Recently, I’ve been listening non-stop to my “Indelible Grace” Pandora station…it makes housework seem like a joyful task :)

  60. tia bennett says

    I love worship music, so I have a lot of favorites.
    Strangely Dim by Francesca Battistell ,
    Your Love Never Fails by the Newsboys,
    Worn by Tenth Avenue North is great,
    Showstopper by TobyMac gets me dancing in the kitchen every time.

  61. Kristin says

    It’s hard to pick a favorite…Anything Steven Curtis Chapman, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder.

  62. Gwen says

    Too many favs to count. We did this really great arrangement of I WILL GLORY IN THE CROSS at church last week. Meaningful words of the old hymn with a great praise band sound. So good.

  63. Cynthia M. says

    I love the song “I Must Get Ready Now” by Selah Project (Ramey Hughes). Wonderful worship song!

  64. Carrie Anderson says

    My 2 yr old is obsessed with music and his current favorite is 10000 reasons by Matt Redman. His sweet little voice sings “Oh my soul” like a little bird! Love it!

  65. Tonya G says

    Kings and Queens is currently on repeat at our house. My 9 year old daughter can’t get enough of it :)

  66. nancygirl says

    Love, love, love Passion’s message! I have heard the new cd was awesome. Here’s hoping I’m one of the 5!

  67. says

    I am loving “My Hope is in You” by Aaron Shust. It’s so overplayed at our house that I should be sick of it, but I’m not. Overindulgence is a part of who I am!

  68. Kristin says

    I would love a copy of this to listen to with my 13 year old daughter. We both love praise music but right now she is stuck on Taylor Swift. It would be great to incorporate some Passion music in between “Stay”, “We are Never getting back Together”, and “Trouble.” 😉

  69. Teresa W says

    First song that popped into my head was, “I Can Only Imagine.” Heard it for the first time at our oldest son’s church and then they played it at my Great Aunt Hazel’s funeral. Been a favorite ever since.

  70. Holly Edwards says

    This One Thing Remains is my favorite song right now…it’s my dream one day to go to Passion as well!

  71. sheilapaige says

    I think 10000 Reasons is my current favorite–God has been using it in my life this semester.

  72. Pam says

    I Won’t Let Go
    Rascal Flats
    It was playing on the radio as I drove home from being with my dad for 10 days before he went home to be with the Lord……on Easter Sunday

  73. Sheila says

    I would love a chance to win. My daughter is turning 13 this June, (WAAAA) and I would love to be able to put it in her Easter basket. Thanks, In God’s Love, sheila

  74. Melissa says

    Hard to choose a favorite. And the only ones I’m thinking of right now are a little older… Children of God by Third Day(LOVE the video!), More Like Falling in Love and Remind Me Who I am both by Jason Gray, Happy Day by Fee, I Will Boast by Phillips Craig and Dean….

  75. Stephanie says

    All This Time by Brit Nicole is my current favorite, but I play last year’s Passion CD pretty much every day. Love it! Perfect for getting pumped up for housework when played nice and loud =)

  76. keely says

    I love all the songs!

    hope you are feeling better, it makes me sad that your love affair with cheesy potatoes could be over :(

  77. Erica says

    I love music, but I’m not one to pay attention to who sings what. I went to a Jeremy Camp concert with a friend this fall and was surprised to learn that he sings quite a few of my favorite songs on the radio.

  78. says

    I’m almost always within spitting (driving) distance to Passion, but have never been. The music is always phenomenal, though!

  79. Alyson says

    I cannot stop singing Whom Shall I Fear? (The God of Angel Armies) by Chris Tomlin. Love, love, love this song!

  80. Teresa says

    Our church youth group sang “I Will Wait” by Mumford and Sons a couple of weeks ago and now it is my favorite!!

  81. EmmaLee says

    I am not sure the exact title but I will sing it for you …. It’s was you and I you’ve been walking with me all this time…

  82. Michelle says

    Worn by Tenth Avenue North — super blessed and I know it, but feeling the weight of a newborn plus three older kids and one more visiting for spring break…

  83. says

    I would love the CD.
    My favorite song at the moment is ‘Need You Now’ by Plumb.
    It is healing my soul. Thanks to our wonderful God!

  84. Michelle in Dallas says

    The song that I go back to over and over and over again right now is Remind Me Who I Am by Jason Gray. The first time I heard the song I also saw the music video at the same time. The. Most. Powerful. Song. Oh my. At least one or a hundred times a day I say to myself “remind me”…. Love love love.

  85. Tiffany Y says

    mm.. too hard to pick just one. old hymns are really enjoyable right now and taking me back to my childhood.

  86. Sue Speir says

    I have so many favorites!!! But one that lifts my spirits and just makes me happy is “Hallelujah” by Forever JONES. I put it on repeat on my iTunes and can listen to it over and over. So joyful!
    I am also a huge David Crowder fan!
    I love watching Passion online also. Starts off the year with hope seeing that many young people worshipping together. So good!

  87. Dana says

    Not sure of the exact title but The God of Angel Armies is always by my side is in the middle? :).

  88. says

    One of my all time favorite songs is Walk on Water by Britt Nicole (especially the live version she sang on KLOVE). It’s even more meaningful because I found my preschool daughter singing along with it when she woke up one morning that we surprised her. It was priceless! :)

  89. Christie Ulrich says

    I have 3 teenage daughters and they LOVE Colton Dixon so his new album is what has been playing practically non stop at our house. I must say it is a good album. Thanks for the chance to win:)

  90. Susan says

    Favorite song right now: Forever Reign
    I’m a new mama and love reading your blog. Thank you!

  91. says

    I don’t have a current favorite song. If I am wanting worship music my first choice has been 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redmond. That CD and I became best buds when I drove between Michigan and Minnesota a bazillion time last fall as my dad succumbed to cancer. If I am just doing dishes or putzing in the kitchen I turn on the Mumford and Sons station on Pandora. If I am slogging through a run at the gym – I am not a fan of the treadmill – I listen to Pandora’s Pop and Hip Hop Power Workout station.

    • Lisa says

      If you have YouVersion, there is a Devotion that goes with the CD this song is on. I really suggest you reading it. Also, if possible, download the entire CD. My Mom saw Jesus face to face on January 7. This CD ministered to me & my family so much during the days that followed. Please listen to his song, “Endless Hallelujah,” & allow it to permeate your soul. You will fill God’s comfort surround you!!

  92. Kathy Wilshire says

    Current favorite song: Matt Redmon, Never Once

    Just finished Sparkly Green Earrings. Loved it: laughed out loud, cried, etc!

  93. Cassie says

    I have a lot of favorites, but am old and can’t remember names. I have never been much of a keep up with the band type, but love good music that my kids and I can listen to together.

  94. trish white says

    Every night at bedtime, my boys listen to “Jesus songs”. The current fave is God of Angel Armies.

  95. K says

    The CD sounds great – hope I win so I can check it out! My current favorite song is “Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave : )

  96. says

    My favorite current song is anything off Chris Tomlin’s new cd Burning Lights. Every song that comes on I think, “Oh…this is my favorite!” Then the next one comes on and I think, “Oh…this is my favorite!”

  97. says

    It’s so hard to pick my favorite song right now, I have several. So a short list if you will…Casting Crowns- Until the Whole World Hears, Big Daddy Weave-Redeemed, Hawk Nelson-Words, Mercy Me-All of Creation, and the Afters- Light Up the Sky. And that’s the short list. :)

  98. Lynette says

    My current face is 10,000 Reasons. It reminds me to dwell on the blessings. Some days I put it on repeat and listen to it again and again (and, of course, sing along…make a joyful noise, right?)

  99. says

    I am a teenager living in the body of an old woman. I want to go to Passion AND Revolve- I guess if I went they’d just assume I was a chaperone? 😉

  100. Chris says

    My 17 year old is already planning his Passion trip next year. He is beyond excited. My favorite song…and the one that ALWAYS gives me goose bumps…”Not Where I Belong” by Building 429. oh my word

  101. Merlene says

    My son attended Passion in 1999 and was swept away with it as you. Would love to have one of the CDs for him. College students and sponsors from our church attended 2013.

  102. says

    Don’t really have a favorite song at this point. But my 4 year old and I love listening to stuff as we drive around town. We do music and audio books, so this would be a neat thing to listen to with her :)

  103. Lisa says

    I am in the same boat with you on the age issue. However, I have been to a Youth Camp where Louie Giglio spoke & was so blessed to hear him in person! My current favorite new song is “You Are” by Colton Dixon off of his CD A MESSENGER. “You Are” always makes me think of my precious 20 yr. old daughter, April, & her relentless pursuit of God & worshiping Him with total abandonment! The first time I heard this song I immediately called her & told her she had to listen to it immediately. She let me know she was on it & had already downloaded it! If y’all haven’t had time listen to it, please take time. Such a blessing!

  104. Andrea says

    I was lucky enough to go to Passion in Jan 1999 and then to One Day in 2000 (called One Day but was ironically more than one day in a field in Tennessee). The conferences were some of the highlights of my high school and college journey. Wow. I would love to get to go to another. Maybe someday I will sneak in and they won’t notice that I am way too old to be there. :-)

    • Andrea says

      I forgot to tell you my favorite song…. Probably 10,000 Reasons or Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies).

  105. Sylvia says

    I’ve been listening to Farther Along by Josh Garrels quite a bit…but I listen to everything all the time! :)

  106. Rebecca says

    Anything I can stream since I live in Mexico and would rather sit in silence than listen to 98% of the music here :(

  107. Kelly Calkins says

    It’s a tie between two Daniel Bashta songs right now! “Let Hope In” and “I want it all (Just give me Jesus)” Soooooo amazing!!!

  108. Beth bufkin says

    I like three songs depending on the mood I’m in. “Do Everything” Steven curtis chapman
    Walk on the Water by Britt Nicole and I AM by Mark Shultz…I would love a copy of the Cd.

  109. Karen in VT says

    We constantly have music on in our house. I struggle to find a stream of music that I don’t have to worry about the content for my kids (ages 5, 2.5, 2.5, 1.5) and that I actually enjoy. We’ve all but worn out MercyMe (even though they are a favorite) and I like current pop/alternative music, but I cringe over some of the lyrics when the kids are around. (Home by Phillip Phillips is my kids current have.) Would welcome a new soundtrack :)

  110. Jenny says

    My favorite song right now is “Spirit Break Out” by Kim Walker-Smith. She is amazing.

    My daughters (11 and 12yrs) love Britt Nicole and Jamie Grace. I’m sure Caroline would like them too!

  111. Kelley Galyen says

    Hmmm…I made the mistake of reading the ones before mine…I had one picked out, but as I scrolled down, I kept thinking, “oh! I like that one!” and “Ooo…Love that one too!”, so I will have to say “DITTO” to the ones posted before me! 😉

  112. Lisa Pickle says

    One song? I have no idea. I have teenagers, so I don’t know if I have heard a song I like in lots of years…lol.

  113. Melanie says

    My favorie acapella hymns – “In the Garden”, “How Great Thou Art” and “Amazing Grace”. Would love to win this CD!!

    Have a great day! Enjoy Spring Break!

  114. Gay H. says

    I don’t know that I could pick one favorite song – love lots of them!! Thanks for a chance to win!

  115. Lisa D. says

    Favorite song? We have a family favorite right now….”One Thing Remains.” All four of us love it!!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  116. Darla DH says

    My favorite current song is “I’m Worn”….can’t remember who sings it!! Oh, how I need some fresh music in my life!!

  117. Kristin says

    I also would love to attend a Passion conference, but I am very close to your age and therefore have been out of college for a few years… I do work at a college. Does that count? :)

    I own several Passion CD’s and they are wonderful. Favorite song…I have so many. Most of my favorite artists will be on the Passion CD.

  118. says

    after reading through some of the other comments, i’m thinking it might be inappropriate to say that my current favorite song is “mirrors” by justin timberlake. but i would be lying if i said it was something else. that man is talented! maybe my next favorite will be one from the passion album…

  119. Jenny says

    Angel Armies – I know who goes before me, I know who stands behind. The God of ANGEL ARMIES… so powerful!

  120. says

    I don’t really have a favorite song, but I keep hearing a song on the radio that I LOVE and can’t figure out who it’s by! Maybe it’s on this cd?! 😉

  121. Lauren Doyle says

    My favorite song for awhile now is Jamie Grace “God Girl” I love the message of the song but love even more that it is calling me a girl instead of a women (I’m too young for that…:) )

    Last week I came to realization that I am not indeed college age anymore and it was very depressing, it hit me when I realized that I hire “college” age kids to watch my kids….

  122. says

    I love music and especially praise music. It helps me stay focused on God more and less on my circumstances. So can I give you my top 5 since they seem to be on REPEAT mode everyday and the songs that play in my head even if the music is not one.
    Gold by Britt Nicole’
    I Knew What I was Getting Into by Misty Edwards
    Strangely Dim by Francesca Battistelli
    Holy Spirit by Jesus Culture
    I Surrender by Hillsong.
    Crossing my fingers that I get randomly picked :)

  123. Kim says

    I always love the Passion CD’s, and I went years ago and it truly was an incredible experience. Would love this CD!

    Worship-wise, one that plays on repeat in my head is One Thing Remains.

  124. Maisie says

    Right now I’m loving anything by Hillsong United, or Bryan & Katie Torwalt. My favorite single is We Are by Kari Jobe.

  125. Whitney Alexander says

    I’d love to win a copy! Fave song right now? Anything old school made new. Matt Scott for example. Good stuff!

  126. Lori says

    10,000 Reasons is my favorite currently…LOVE hearing my 2 yr old granddaughter singing it…..

  127. Tracy says

    My current fav is I Need You Now by Plumb :)
    Love the blog- New subscriber and look forward to each post!

  128. says

    I always have about 10 favorite songs at any given time. But my current one that I can’t get out of my head is Audio Adrenaline’s “Kings and Queens”. I just love, love, love it. It makes me want to adopt all of the kids in the world. Yes, all of them.

  129. Leslie says

    My favorite song right now is: Always by Kristian Stanfill. It would be awesome if I won the Passion CD because I could give it to my husband for an upcoming birthday!

  130. Celeste Hill says

    I am throwing my comment in for the thrill of winning, and if not it’s itunes here
    I come!

  131. Jennifer C says

    I love the passion cd’s. That is what I usually listen to when I work out at home. Can’t wait to get a copy of this. Would love to win it and save some money. Whom Shall I Fear by Chris Tomlin is the song that popped into my head as a favorite at this time.

  132. says

    My 1year old rocks OUT to “Carry On” by Fun. I should probably clean up his music exposure a bit, so maybe we really do need the new Passion CD! 😉

  133. Marla T says

    On school days, my daughter and I love listening to Mandisa sing, “Good Morning!” I also love “Blessings” by Laura Story. Thank you for this opportunity to win! ???

  134. Cindi says

    Thanks for the giveaway! My fave song is “Gone, Gone, Gone” by Phillip Phillips. Or anything else on his CD…it is just. that. good.

  135. Deanna says

    So many songs to love! Right now I’m really into “Steady My Heart” by Kari Jobe, “What do I know of Holy” by Addison Road and, “Lead Me” from Sanctus Real.

  136. Suzie says

    Come Thou Fount is a current favorite…. Redeemed….. I love music!!! I want to go to the conference too! Maybe I will have to adopt some college kids :)

  137. Jackieackie says

    I have collection of greatest hits in my car of Bon Jovi. Sorry, I can’t pick just one favorite song on that. I am preparing for the concert on April 11 where I will FINALLY get to go see Bon Jovi after forgoing getting to see them in concert when I was a Jr. in high school in 1988 because my parents didn’t want me to go. My now husband Michael had already bought the ticket but I had to sit at home alone and watch movies. I could have gone because they were out of town and would have never known. But, I was a good little girl and missed seeing them. I have to say that is the only thing I regret about minding my parents. So stinking excited to go to the concert. :-)

  138. Kelly says

    I streamed it this year too. I have three over college age kids and one still in and 11 yo twins coming up behind. So there you go. Anyway, I’ve been loving some Travis Cottrell ever since I attended the Living Proof event last fall. But we love worship music of many artists and play it all the time.

  139. Melissa says

    Current favorite song? Lots of Jesus Culture. And then there’s your random Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Katy Perry song I like to mix it up with as well. 😉 I think a Passion CD would be a great addition to the playlist! :)

  140. Kelli says

    My favorites change by the day! But my daughter and her friends are going to be old enough to attend Passion next year…I think I will volunteer to chaperone!

  141. Jessica says

    In Christ Alone has been a favorite of mine for awhile now.
    I would love to win me a cd too!

  142. amy says

    LOVE Passion music! Can’t wait to hear this one :) btw…..I started your book today. So good!!

  143. Aggiema (Michelle) says

    Don’t listen to much music anymore due to my hearing loss but know my husband and daughter would love this CD.

  144. Tanya M says

    The song I cannot get out of my head right now is Alicia Keys “This Girl is on Fire.”

  145. kelly says

    God of angel armies. Resurrection song. How great thou art. Call on jesus (that’s an old one, along with my redeemer lives). BTW i just finished your book on my kindle. It was so good i ordered another for my daughter.

  146. Jenny G. says

    I have a variety of favorite songs but right now I am on a Mandisa kick. He is With You brings me to tears – cant get through the song without the tears.

  147. Kali says

    Hmm..wow…my current favorite song is….umm…Mama’s Broken Heart by Miranda Lambert.

  148. Nirma R. says

    ‘I Surrender’ by Hillsong. The video on youtube lasts about 10 minutes. It touches my heart and reminds me of the place I need to occupy every. minute. of. the. day…surrendered at His feet.

  149. Kensey says

    I hate ‘favorite’ questions – I can never make a decision!!

    How about some good ol’ church songs…
    I really love Come Thou Fount and Better is One Day

  150. Jamie says

    So exciting!! I watch Passion online and wish I were a few years younger! I listen to LOTS of David Crowder and seriously love me some Christy Nockels too.

  151. Julie says

    Favorite pop song – Van Morrison’s – Into the Mystic
    Favorite gospel song – How Great Thou Art

  152. naomi says

    No true favorite as my favorite changes with my mood. As a result I have hundreds/thousands of favorites. :) One that is a good life motto for me though is “Turn, turn, turn”. Hard to follow some times but good advice.

  153. Jeannette says

    right now I have heard a song with the phrase “boys become kings, and girls become queens”. I don’t know the name or who sings it.

  154. Amy says

    Angel Armies by Chris Tomlin
    That’s not the real name of the song, but that’s what I call it.

  155. Kimberly Wiles says

    You Are I Am by Mercy Me is my current favorite song! I sampled the Passion CD on Itunes and LOVE it. I will definitley have to get it for the IPOD. It would be nice to win it though!

  156. says

    For the love of Pete, why are there so many comments?!!? I need to win this more than any sparkly green earrings. 1. I cannot wear earrings. 2. I don’t believe in downloading music. (As in, I don’t really understand it and I prefer old fashioned CDs.)

    I have been to Passion 4 times. HOLLA.

  157. Carrie James says

    Wow, picking a favorite song is so hard. Let’s just say anything Chris Tomlin has written would probably be my favorite right now. I just found out recently that he’s an Aggie too which makes him even more awesome!

  158. says

    Melanie, the song I can’t stop playing on repeat is “Who Can Compare” by Mary Kat Ehrenzeller, of Emerging Voices (of Bethel). <3

  159. Mikaila says

    I think my favorite song right now is “10,000 reasons”. It means a lot to me right now. I’m also loving that song that goes “Hello, my name is Child of the One True King”. So good!

  160. Denise says

    “10,000 Reasons” still resonates with my spirit, but after seeing Chris Tomlin last Friday, I also love “Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)”.

  161. Tonya says

    Like a Lion- The Newsboys version. My 2 year old is the cutest when he shouts out “GOD’S NOT DEAD”, we play it on repeat just to hear his version!

  162. says

    I’m really into the Kari Jobe song “What Love is This” right now. So beautiful and worshipful and brings me to my knees when I need to be on my knees.

  163. Melanie says

    We aren’t picky! I do love “I Can Only Imagine” by Mercy Me and “I Am Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave. So many wonderful songs out there it’s hard to choose a favorite!

  164. Mandy M. says

    My favorite song changes all the time, but right now my fav is “Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave.

  165. Lindsay says

    I’d love to win! My favorite song right now is an oldie – Knees to the Earth by Watermark.

  166. says

    I’m torn – I’ve never been able to answer this question! It’s like choosing between gravy and cream sauce. Wait. Cream sauce. And I have to go with In Christ Alone. Doesn’t seem to matter what artist…it brings me to my knees, which is where I belong.

  167. Becky s says

    My favorite song right now is “Gone, Gone, Gone” from Phillip Phillips’ album The World From The Side of the Moon.

  168. Dee says

    Hmmm…I don’t know that I have a current favorite song. Maybe Harlem Shake? :) Right now I’m listening to The Civil Wars though and I still love them. Oh, and I love all of the songs from the tv show Nashville too!

  169. says

    ooohhh. I have too many favourites. :) It is probably “Nearer, Still Nearer”. But I also like “10 000 Reasons” by Matt Redman, “Deer in the Headlights” by Owl City, and “Love You for a Long Time” by High Valley. A friend of mine went to Passion and really enjoyed it.

  170. Tami Wells says

    My favorite song right now is “Crown Him (Majesty)” by Chris Tomlin. Really, any of the songs off his new CD.

  171. Emily W. says

    I just heard “Crown Him” by Chris Tomlin and Kari Jobe on the recommendation of Lindsee at LPM and I looooooove it!

  172. Elizabeth Tharp says

    My favorite is anything and everything by Jesus Culture. Worship is the place to be!

  173. Marla says

    I really enjoy your blog! You make me smile every day….so thanks! :) My current favorite song is “You Are” by Colton Dixon. Love it!

  174. Valerie says

    I’m a missionary in South America, waiting to settle a visa issue, so we can
    go stateside for a six month furlough. I’m totally out of the loop regarding
    current Christian music and was doing a little exploring on the internet
    today. Found a group that I think I like, not knowing how old or new they
    are: All Sons & Daughters.

  175. Alexandra says

    My favorites are “Neverending” and “Everything Glorious” by David Crowder Band. I play them one after the other… again and again…

  176. says

    I’ve been going through some tough stuff lately, so Blessed Be Your Name by Matt Redman has been on repeat in my head.

  177. Beccalouloubell says

    “Hold Me” by Jamie Grace. I love it! I love the Passion conferences too, and wish such a thing had been around when I was in college, but, sadly, I am just a smidgen too old!

  178. Lauren A says

    Lay Me Down – Chris Tomlin. I went to his concert last week and have been singing it ever since!

  179. Debbie says

    I am still loving Christy Nockels. And I sent Le Crae cd’s to my grandsons for Valentines day after hearing him on the Passion live stream. Good stuff.

  180. Carly Webb says

    Hmmm… I love many songs, no real favorites right now. Love Passion also! Attended in 1998 and then also went to the first One Day; great stuff!

  181. says

    I have oodles of favorites, but my testimony in song is “I Am Determined” to live for my King!!!!!!!

    Would love to win the giveaway….thank you!!!!

  182. Mandy P says

    HELLO, MY NAME IS by Matthew West and STRANGELY DIM by Francesca Battistelli are two of my favorites right now.

  183. Jaclyn Rose says

    I’m loving some old school Andrew Peterson these days! The Chasing Song especially!

  184. Bethany says

    I’ve recently been listening to “The Story” cd….and I really love how each song is about a Bible story/theme. I’m enjoying it tremendously but one of my favorite songs is “Need You Now” by Plumb.

  185. Jan N says

    The Old Rugged Cross….always a favorite. Many songs come and go but this one will always be at the top of the list!

  186. Barbara says

    I read your book last week and really enjoyed it! Wish I didn’t have to wait so long til the next one is out….know it will be good!

    Thanks, Melanie!

  187. Lou Ann says

    I like the new CD by Meredith Andrews – so worshipful!
    and Kari Jobe – Love Came Down
    Need you Now – Plumb

  188. Rachel says

    I love the AMEN song Manifesto; I spent about half hour last night trying to dig up the song name so it could be the first song added to my iphone!

  189. JennyBC says

    I am loving Kim Walker-Smith’s new album Still Believe (live). Goodness, that will bring you into the throne room! Can’t wait to hear new Passion CD!

  190. says

    So many favorite songs! But what I’m singing now is the soundtrack to Les Miserables–such a story of redemption. Makes me cry every time I hear the music. (Most of it anyway.)

  191. Beth Whitney says

    I love KJ-52’s Brand New Day, especially the line “I’m not where I wanna be, but I’m not where I used to be”!!!

  192. Carmen says

    Most of the songs I listen to lately are the Veggie Tales variety LOL – so I don’t know if I have a favorite current song.

  193. Dawn B says

    My kids and I love Good Morning by Mandisa. I am not a morning person but that song helps me get going and we like to dance to it before heading out the door to school. :)

  194. Robyn Beall says

    My one goal yesterday was to buy this CD and can you BELIEVE I could not find it? My favorite current song: so hard, it changes according to how the Lord speaks to me, but I’d have to say at this very moment I’m singing Always by Kristian Stanfill.
