“I've journeyed through a lot over the past three years,” said Natalie Grant in a recent press release. “This record is full of my stories and is a reminder that no matter how dark the struggle may seem, I am not alone. And through writing these songs, I've been reminded that hope always wins.”
With award winning husband/producer Bernie Herms at the helm of her latest musical endeavor, Grant poured her heart into this record and wrote on eight of the 10 tracks. Based on her own real-life experiences , Grant addresses for the first time, her struggle with post-partum depression after the birth of her third child, her feelings of inadequacy when it comes to parenting; her feelings of guilt over the ceaseless balance of work, family, motherhood and faith. The project offers listeners a sense of hope, peace and encouragement.
"This record is full of music that is positive and bright, both musically and lyrically, which is almost the antitheses to how I have felt for the last few years, but it is the result of hope and faith,” Grant continued. "Even when everything seems dark, my faith keeps the light on. I feel these songs help me to tell that truth in a fresh way."
