Kari, of course, has little left to prove in the field of modern worship and her work with Gateway Church has taken her voice and her songs to believers around the world. 'The Garden' was written and recorded during a season of pain and loss for the Jobe family. But as the singer/songwriter says, "[God] is much like a gardener, knowing what to prune and what seeds to sow that will grow in due season and be life-giving to us." Kari co-wrote the songs here with her husband, worship leader Cody Carnes, together with Australia's Brooke Fraser, America's Jason Ingram, Britain's Martin Smith and other worship leader friends and there are several songs here, thoughtfully produced by Jeremy Edwardson (Jesus Culture, Hillsong United), which will surely connect with congregations as well as CD listeners. Currently my two favourites are "Let Your Glory Fall" and a song very apposite for both the USA and the UK, "Heal Our Land". But wherever you look on this set you'll hear a great voice passionately singing heart-warming songs.

Grammy nominated Kari Jobe is the premiere female worship leader in Christian music. Coming off her last live album, Majestic, which featured the worship anthem Forever and radio hit I Am Not Alone, Kari Jobe has returned to the studio to record her new album, full of brand new worship anthems for the church and for personal reflection. Finding inspiration from life's joys and hardships, Kari leans into the firm foundation of Christ through it all.
With career sales that top 1 million, Kari still comes back to the reason why she started in the first place- leading people into worship of our Saviour.
