Reviewed by Esther Jones

Despite having been quiet for almost three years, the award-winning singer re-enters the CCM scene with gusto and prowess to deliver her finest ever album. Here she breaks out of the worship-orientated mould of 'Awaken' and lands on pop/rock territory with a fine collection of songs in a style reminiscent of Kelly Clarkson's 'Breakaway'. Vocally, Grant runs the whole gamut from rock chick to blue eyed soul diva while the production, from husband Bernie Herms, is top rate. From the uptempo belter "I Will Not Be Moved" to the soft piano ballad "Make A Way", her distinct vocals are flawless and cement her status as the Christian pop star of our time. Lyrically, the album addresses a number of issues; struggling with cancer ("Our Hope Endures"), finding hope in the midst of life's difficulties ("Make It Matter") - a power pop song with an R&B kick, and "Let Go", about living in the moment. Let's hope Grant takes this advice herself and can enjoy the success this album will surely bring.
