I have to admit that when I saw this CD, I thought, "It's a male Rebecca St James!" (There was a big face on the front!) The album is shiny pop with a hint of rock and the usual top-notch Nashville production. An immediate highlight is the melodramatic, orchestrated "Could It Be". Ronnie's label manager, Michael W Smith, says he ".has a real gift when it comes to piano and songwriting." And he appears to be right. I can't say there is anything here really musically groundbreaking, but the songs are honest and talk about personal faith and struggles whilst being encouraging and a satisfying listen.

I have heard Ronnie perform his music live. It was an amazing time. The lyrics to these songs will touch your heart deeply and challenge you to grow deeper in your walk with our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you, Ronnie for this CD!! I await more to come.

"NO READER COMMENTS HAVE BEEN ADDED YET?!?!?!" This clearly shows no-one has heard this CD. Every song is inspirational and will challenge you in wherever you are in life. The lyrics evidently come from a life that has been in and out of Holy fire and now joyfully and humbly desire to just love God. Whenever I am feeling a lift I either read the lyrics, listen to the CD or both! Ronnie Freeman is NOT Michael W. Smith. He outshines!!!
