Nearly 30 years of recording, this is the latest release from the multi award-winning artist. It's all very polished and showcases that renowned BIG inspirational ballad voice, singing predominantly songs of worship. The album gets straight into that vein with a strong version of the wonderful Hillsong number "Made Me Glad (I Will Bless The Lord Forever)" acknowledging our total dependence on God in times of trouble. Indeed that theme of trust in all circumstances is picked up in the title track, as Sandi recalls a childhood lesson in falling forwards into the arms of a father who never dropped her. There's also songs about family relationships, touching upon her own experiences. With an up-tempo horn section backing, Sandi encourages us to "Step Into Joy". There's a worship song medley and a traditional hymn medley. All together a strong set of songs for those who enjoy Sandi's particular form of orchestrated balladry.

Product Description
Every day we work with people who are broken.
Some fall back.
Some fall forward to the throne of God.
Sandi’s story is a story that touches every man and woman. It’s a story of falling down with a grateful heart that embraces the realisation that she has been forgiven much. Her heart’s response is falling forward into God’s grace in worship.
On this collection of well known and new songs of worship, Sandi Patty takes us by the hand and leads us on a journey of redemption, restoration and the encompassing sufficiency of God.
This is the 25th career recording of the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history and she has three platinum and five gold recordings to her credit.
