Gentle songs, four of them to be precise, make the backbone of this recording. Each song is a gentle encouragement to the soul ministering the peace of the album's title. Consequently this is a peaceful sounding album from the morning sound effects of "Morning Glory" through the peaceful vibe of "Peace" and the passion of the plea on "Shake Us Again" until we get to the encouragement of "Like The Dew". After each track, there's a coda where Juanita sings spontaneously in ecstatic gospel singer mode. Musically and spiritually, this does minister though I do have some questions about all of this since Juanita bills herself as prophetess Juanita Bynum. Bit of a mouthful and perhaps a bit of a presumption to go round declaring you're a prophetess. Just a quibble! This is certainly different to your standard album because of her desire to minister right into the heart of the listener using music. This is the sort of album you want to slap into your CD player at the start of a difficult day to receive peace from God to face the challenges.
