I have been listening to Christian music since I was saved in 1978 but I don't think I have every heard anything like this unique recording. Musically it's slightly middle of the road and without a huge Nashville style budget, this is still creative within its means. Only a few of these pieces were written before Tamara went into the studio. Most of this album is described as "songs of the Lord" where Tamara would play in the studio accompanying herself on the piano singing the words that God spoke into her heart. In the hands of someone who God hadn't gifted, this approach would be a recipe for disaster but Tamara has a deep anointing and inspiration from God. All the songs have had other instruments arranged and added after the original recording of her singing and these have a real power. We're not talking "I Will Bless You My Children" sorts of prophecy, these songs will speak the word of God directly into your life, the sort of word which can stir a deep heartfelt response and send shivers down your spine. In a world where artistry has sometimes replaced ministry, Tamara Winslow is doing something unique. If you feel called to grow in your prophetic gifting in your church, this will definitely be the album to inspire you in the possibilities of how God can use you.
