Laura Story’s ‘Open Hands’ CD Review + Giveaway

I’ve loved Laura Story’s music for quite some time.  The great news for all of us is that she released a new album called Open Hands.  Even better for one special reader is that I’ve been authorized to run a giveaway for a copy of Laura Story’s Open Hands CD too….just keep reading…..

Open Hands has eleven (11) amazing worship songs that really speak to your heart.  Each song is a raw prayer to the Father – a cry for His mercy and grace.  Laura always knows how to sing the right song that speaks to the listener – mother, sinner, and child of God.  

There were some familiar melodies from old hymns remade “Laura Story style” and I loved hearing them in a different spin on them on this album. I found myself singing these songs out loud in the car because I already knew the lyrics.  There are some newer songs that I know I’ve already heard us singing at church too!

You can find her other albums as well:  Blessings, God of Every Story, God With Us, and Great God Who Saves.  She’s also written some books that are available:  What If Your Blessings Come Through Raindrops: A 30 Day Devotional and When God Doesn’t Fix It: Lessons You Never Wanted to Learn, Truths You Can’t Live Without.

Anyway, so here’s the giveaway below….. be sure to read the fine print below the giveaway too…..

Her solo artist music debut in 2008 with Great God Who Saves led to four Dove nominations and the award for “Inspirational Album of the Year.” In 2011, Laura released her sophomore project Blessings. The album and the emotionally powerful title was inspired by her real life trials and adversities, primarily her husband Martin’s diagnosis of a brain tumor. The album resonated with a huge audience and led to whirlwind career highlights for Laura, peaking at the No. 1 album spot for three consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Contemporary Christian Overall chart, topping the iTunes® Christian/Gospel Top Songs chart and holding the No. 1 spot for an impressive 28 consecutive weeks on the Christian charts. The success of the single “Blessings,” which was certified RIAA Gold, includes the GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Christian Song, the Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Song and the Dove Awards for Song of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.

The song inspired Laura’s first book, “What If Your Blessings Come first-ever Christmas project God With Us, released in October of 2015. Laura recently released a new book and bible study curriculum When God Doesn’t Fix It; Lessons You Never Wanted to Learn, Truths You Can’t Live Without.  She has a graduate degree from Covenant Theological Seminary and has served as a worship leader at Perimeter Church in Atlanta since 2005, but her greatest joy is being a wife to Martin and the mother to Ben, Griffin and Josie.
