Joyce, Judy and Jonathan Martin have put together this collection of lyrically rich soft pop ballads. There is a hint of a country sound and a close inspection of the sleeve reveals a Nashville address, although Alliance distributes this album in Europe. The Martins have powerful voices that add some excitement to the songs and an ability to whisk me away into a dreamy world of imagery. The songs chosen are a good mix of experience and Scripture, although only three of the songs are co-written by one of the group - Joyce. High point for me was the vivid picture of our eternal state of dancing on "Stars Below", the powerful declarations in "Mighty God" and the moving lyric "You saved me at each and every turn." Overall, I found this to be a delightful album.
