She's only 21 but she has been around the music scene for seven years, her first album coming out when she was only 14 and this being her fourth. Lyrically Dallas-based Bethany is well known for her thoughtful lyrics and this album takes it to a deeper level. The title track deals with the Martha and Mary story and reminds us that we can busy ourselves so much that we can forget to spend time with Jesus. The lyrical themes are quite confessional and introspective and a strong part of the album. Musically this sits nicely in pop/folk territory and ambles along at an easy pace. Bethany has clearly matured as a thought-provoking songwriter and there are rewards for repeated listens and the album as a whole grows on the listener.
