EDITORS’ NOTES

Bethel Music’s You Make Me Brave offers a celebration of corporate praise as well as individual expressions of reverence by its featured worship leaders. Recorded at the Bethel Women’s Conference in Redding, Calif., the album brings together a roster of distinctive singers in the common service of extoling the Creator. A ringing note of spiritual triumph runs through these performances, heard in Amanda Cook’s passionate lead vocals on the title track and Jenn Johnson’s spontaneous soul-bearing testimony on “Joy of the Lord.” The theme of man’s relationship with God is interwoven throughout yearning songs like “A Little Longer” and “Come to Me.” Musically, Cook’s “Shepherd” (a moving hosanna accented with strings) and Steffany Frizzell-Gretzinger’s “We Dance” (piano-centered and graced with a crystalline melody) are standouts. “We Step Into Freedom”—a shimmering expression of simple prayerful power—closes the album on an exalted note. What’s striking about You Make Me Brave is its marriage of intimacy and grandeur, a feat not often achieved on similar worship projects. With this release, Bethel Music secure a place alongside Hillsong as a world-class musical collective able to move crowds while capturing faith in personal terms.

Powerful worship! Buy this album.

This amazing album has powerful women of worship leading one anointed song after another. The album is not rushed and captures many raw, sweet spontaneous moments where you can feel God's presence in the room.

Kari Jobe is the featured guest on this album and her version of "Forever" is stunning, and also includes epic spontaneous moments. The artist line up is amazing, with Amanda Cook, Jenn Johnson, Kari Jobe, Steffany Frizell-Gretzinger, Kristene Di Marco, and Leah Valenzuela. "You Make Me Brave" by Amanda Cook is the incredibly powerful title track that will be sung in churches for years. But "Shepherd" is an equally epic song by Amanda that I can't stop listening to. Jenn's version of "Come to Me", is brought to life in the live version. Steffany's song "We Dance" is a soft, sweet moment in the album where the lights go sown and it's just her, the grand and the strings. And Kristine Di Marco's new song is an anthemic hymn that leaves you on the floor face down. Wow. Amazing.

Overall we love this album because it's a worship journey from beginning to end, one incredible song after another. This one will be on repeat in our home for a long time.

Yearning for Jesus

Being a Christian father of three young daughters, these songs all reflect the yearning for Jesus to make us brave that I pray for my daughters’ to feel in their hearts as well. Every song completely focuses me as a listener on joining in praise, worship and adoration of our beautiful King Jesus, with reminders that the “waves and wind know His Name.” Don’t miss “You Make Me Brave,” “It is Well,” “Forever,” “Anchor,” “Shepherd,” “We Dance” and “Come to Me.” These stellar songs are excellent reminders to cling to our Anchor, Jesus.

THIS HAS WRECKED MY ENTIRE FAMILY!!

Bethel sets the bar so high I could say they would have a hard time topping themselves. With that said my initial responce wasn't all that impressed, then I gave a copy of it to my parents and siblings. The first day my brother almost died on his way home from my house cause the glory of God just wrecked his heart while going 70 on the freeway. The next day my dad go into a fender-bender because of the same thing. 2 days later I'm drving home from work at like 11pm and the power of God came on me while listening to the title track with this responce of "I love how you love me and want to create an atmosphere of My love around you, but what you don't realize is that I want to create an atmosphere of your love around me." At that I almost hit a pole..... So Buy this album just don't listen to it while driving.
