What’s Your Favorite??

You guys are ROCK STARS!!  Yesterday, I asked you for your favorite Trader Joe’s recommendations and you had me grabbing my keys to head to the store every time I read a comment.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to share your Trader Joe favorites!  I seriously can’t wait to go back and try your suggestions!

You guys never let me down with your recommendations and that got me thinking…I want to hear more from these sweet readers!!  I’m going to try more frequently to ask YOUR opinion or YOUR suggestions and I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts!  

I enjoy sharing my life and random things about my life with you guys and I’d love to hear more from you.  Today…we’re talking music!

Depending on when I was asked this question, these could have been some of my answers….

*Genie in a Bottle
*Into the Mystic
*Any Man of Mine
*Country Grammar
*The Macarena-hahaha!  Totally keepin’ it real!
*Wild Wild West
*Love Shack

These days I spend most of my time in the car with three littles and I’m trying my best to put nothing but positive things in their sweet little heads.  We listen to Contemporary Christian music most of the time.  I’m a big Hillsong fan and right this second, I’d say Touch the Sky by Hillsong is my favorite.

If you’ve never heard the song, you can see it here on YouTube.

Right now that is my FAVORITE song!  It’s constantly changing for me.  🙂

What about YOU?  What’s your FAVORITE song at the moment?
I’m looking forward to expanding my playlist!!

Thank you, girls!  Have a great Wednesday!

    Love these choices ha! I haven't heard this hillsong song yet but I will definitely be looking it up. I've been listening to Good, Good Father by Chris Tomlin alot lately because my church has had it in rotation and it always rocks my socks.

    You need to check out Elevation Worship! They are the band at my church and they're phenomenal! They have a spotify station. But my favorite songs by them are Yahweh and Here as in Heaven.

    I love SOOOO many songs, it's ridiculous!!! Off the top of my head the 2 that pop out are House Party & Burning House. I AM a huge country fan (especially now that my 9 yr old likes to sing along ;)), but I do listen to a variety of music overall.

    My favorite song lately is "first" by Lauren daigle. I didn't like it the first few times I heard it. Then one day I focused on the lyrics, and now I love it.

    Genie In a Bottle? The Macarena? HYSTERICAL!
    Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran) has been my favorite for a couple of months now. Chris hates it, but I always sing along with the entire song and won't allow him to change the station! 🙂

    Right now, it's Chris Tomlin's "At the Cross". Also Oceans by Hillsong United. I know that's been out for awhile but sometimes I just need a good Oceans reminder 😉 I love that you listen to Christian in the car with the kiddos — that's mainly what we do as well. There's so much junk out there once they get out of the car and I want to fill their little hearts before they encounter that. Anyway, that said, we also can jam pretty well go Maroon 5's Sugar. Nothing funnier than 2 five year olds screaming "Sug-ahh!" 😉 And when I'm alone in the car, I'm loving Carrie Underwood's new one, "Smoke Break". It's catchy! Have a great day, girlie!

    Have you heard 'How Can it Be' by Lauren Daigle? If not, go download it now! The guy that wrote it used to lead worship in Chapel at DBU and was our worship leader at church for a year or so. It won Song of the Year at the Dove Awards yesterday! I love love love that Hillsong song too! Thanks to Rachel's contest a while back, I won the CD! 🙂

    Oh and 'You Make Me Brave' from Bethel music…amazing! I'll have to tell you a story about this one too sometime!

    "Good Good Father" by Bethel-so sweet!

    "O Lord" by Lauren Daigle! Love her! Lauren Daigle Pandora station is my favorite, all of her songs are great! Some other favorite Christian artists are Ellie Holcomb and Christy Knockels!

    My favourite song is Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift. I don't how she does it, but she speaks my language everytime. I can think of a few old boyfriends that I hope think about me sometimes, even though I'm happily married now.

    I love Hillsong United! You can't go wrong with anything by All Sons & Daughters, but I would say my favorite by them is "All the Poor and Powerless."

    I also love Lauren Daigle, but my fave Christian song is God's Great Dance Floor by Chris Tomlin, such a GREAT running song! My all time favorite song though, is Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac, I am a HUUUUGE Mac fan. 🙂

    I went to Dot Mom this year and Christy Nockels rocked the house. I've been listening to her Let It Be Jesus cd and it's so good! Love anything Hillsong, Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin, the Passion CD's!! Casting Crowns are good too. I keep all those in the car. I'm a big country music lover too. I just love music in general.

    My favorite song right now is Smoke Break by Carrie Underwood…keeping it real when my kids are NOT in the car! haha…we listen to alot of contemporary Christian when they are in the car for the same reason you do. Holy Spirit is one of my faves right now. My kids go to TBarM summer camp and they make their songs available on itunes..my kids LOVE them and if I'm being honest so do I…you can find Bring It, Play it Out, Take a Stand and they are so fun.

    And since it just came on my itunes at work….you have to listen to Find Your Wings by Mark Harris if you haven't before. I found it when my oldest was graduating from high school and seriously would listen to it and bawl my eyes out. Such a great message!

    Ed Sheeran can totally do no wrong in my book and I've had his latest album on repeat pretty much since it came out! Aside from that, my favorites are Dave Matthews Band and all of the old standards – Sinatra, Michael Buble, Rod Stewart. Oh, and I used to not be a T. Swizz fan, but now I LOVE LOVE LOVE her. Her latest album is just fab. Oh, and Luke Bryan's new song Strip It Down. Holy. Moly.

    As you can see, my musical taste is quite eclectic. ;o)

    There is a song called Good, Good Father that is one of my favorites now. I've heard several different people singing it – Chris Tomlin does it. Speaking of Chris, At The Cross is another favorite as well. Love the message behind Lauren Daigle's song, First.
