About the CD:
Nichole Nordeman is set to release her fifth full length studio record Every Mile Mattered. Following up her 2015 EP, The Unmaking, which featured the viral hit 'Slow Down,' Every Mile Mattered is a collection of songs taking a reflective look at her life's path to becoming the woman and Christ-follower she is today. From the leading single 'Every Mile Mattered,' to a vulnerable introspective track titled 'Dear Me,' this album is all about the journey, the ups and downs of life, and not looking back with regret, but with thankfulness that God was there at every turn.

'In the hands of Jesus, every one of those miles brought me to right now. Nothing wasted. Every mile mattered.'

Nichole Nordeman is one of Christian music's most respected singer/songwriters, with four No. 1 songs and seven Top 5 radio singles, including hits such as 'Holy,' 'Legacy' and 'Brave.' Her album Brave debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Christian & Gospel Album Chart.

My Review:
 A beautiful fulfilling album that seems perfect for this time in my life. Where I still have little ones at home but I have a daughter turning 20 and an almost 15 year old. A place in my life where I am still being "mommy" but I am still trying to instill what I can in my older children because they are on their way out the door. Some days are harder than others because raising "teenagers" is hard work. Way harder than raising newborn babies. I was told a long time ago that the teenage years are way harder and it was so, so true.

 I really enjoyed the CD, but I think the song, Slow Down was probably what I'm feeling today. My children are in such a hurry to grow up and move on. I have been telling my daughter to slow down and stay in the moment so this song really touched me. Every Mile Mattered, is a real good one and Dear Me, is something that can really speak to you, as well. We all do the best we can with God's many blessings and many times we get so caught up in life that we forget just how blessed we are.

 This album can quickly become timeless because the issues that each song deals with, we will deal with for eternity. Her album is available on Amazon, Spotify, and ITunes. Nichole has book out, as well you can find it here. She is quickly becoming a favorite, Nichole Nordeman look for her album. Now, you have a chance to win one for yourself! Enter below!!!
