Such is the ever-expanding interest in the worship music emanating from Redding, California's Bethel Church that this album from 2001 now sees the light of day in the UK. A live worship album by the husband and wife team plus Brian's sister Leah Valenzuela, it opens with a powerful build up into the first track, "We Cry Out". The intense anthems continue until the seventh track "You Are So Beautiful" when the tone becomes more reflective, but no less pleasing to hear. These later slower tracks complement and balance the earlier ones. The last track "Home" takes the listener back to the starting point by building from a slow start and culminating in high praise. Not as impactful as Brian and Jenn's later work but this still demonstrates many of the strengths which make the worship emanating from Bethel Church stand out from the crowd.
