The Nashville-based singer has had Cross Rhythms turntable hits with songs like "For The First Time" and "Shrouded In Mystery". Weeks before releasing this fan-funded album in September 2014 Lara lost a family member, which makes certain tracks all the more powerful. The title track leads the listener into the passion and love for God. Producers Otto Price, Michael Farren and Evan Sieling have given Lara a wide range of musical colours from acoustic guitar and cello wistfulness to beat-driven synth pop. "Right Now" is a duet with Jaye Thomas and they complement each other perfectly. As the album progresses with tracks like "Right Now", we start to hear the magic that she has produced in previous albums. "Right Now" is a duet where they complement each other perfectly. And the rest of the album we are guided through by Lara's tender and beautiful voice. The album is rounded off with a high tempo song to make us want to sing out our praises with her in "Wonderful Love" then things are slowed down again for an acoustic version of the title track. Said Lara, "I've been working on this album for two years with my own hopes, reasons and expectations for it but I had no idea the very songs I wrote would be what I needed to hear myself right now. The message of grace is going to be more powerful than ever because it's so real to me right now."
