I wasn’t too impressed with Sara’s debut release from a year ago; it smacked of some of the more OTT efforts of US CCM’s other SP, Sandi Patty. Thankfully, this one is more user-friendly, as the majority of the material has a poppy groove to it. There are some familiar songs from some well-known writers; “Lord I Offer My Life” by Don Moen and Claire Cloninger; “Don’t Let Your Heart Be Troubled” by Dick and Mel Tunney; “I Am Sure” by Gary Sadler, and “All His Benefits” by Ed Kerr; there’s even a MOR treatment of a Bob Hartman Petra praise song “Lovely Lord”. However, despite the producer’s efforts to make it more contemporary, it’s still a tad too inspirational, and whilst Sara has a good voice, there’s nothing in her delivery to make her stand out from the crowd.
