Acoustic-orientated pop with strong, devotional lyrics from a lady who, on the cover shot at least, looks a little like Amy. Kelly's breathily delicate voice oozes conviction while the productions from Margaret Becker and Paul Buano make skilful use of some top Nashville musos. The title track with what sounds like a peddle steel has a country feel ala Susan Ashton while elsewhere the nicely textured accompaniments and Kelly's wistful vocals create a rich, contemplative mood. Maybe not the most innovative release to emerge from the US CCM but definitely a good showcase for a singer/songwriter with a heart for mission.
