Katherine Nelson's Born Brave - Review and Give-away

I'm back from my month-long blogging hiatus (sorry, it's been a crazy month) with a very exciting post regarding the new CD release from Katherine Nelson. You might recognize Katherine Nelson from her role as Emma in the movie Emma Smith : My Story or as the female voice of The Nashville Tribute Band. Now Katherine is making a name for herself  as a singer/song writer with the release of Born Brave, a musical tribute to women.

"When we strengthen women, we strengthen the world. We are all born brave." - Katherine Nelson


I've had the privilege of enjoying Katherine Nelson's new CD for the last few weeks. Fans of The Nashville Tribute Band will love the music from Katherine Nelson. Her songs are inspiring and beautiful and a reminder of the strength and value of women who have inner strength to face all of the trials and darkness in life with light, faith and bravery.

I had the CD playing in the background this morning as I was trying to help the kids start their day. Utah Dad called me back in the room to listen to the song Good For Me again. "Read the words" he counseled. The song is a wonderful reminder about why I chose to stay home with my children. It certainly takes a measure of bravery--the kiddos can be a tough bunch. It is certainly worth it.

Katherine Nelson is very talented and her music is encouraging and strengthening. Sometimes even the women born brave need a reminder. From the upbeat anthem to the sweet and tender lullabies, Born Brave has a song for every woman.

The CD also includes the song Emma, a beautiful tribute to one of the very bravest of women. I recently read the section in the Doctrine and Covenants where Emma Smith was commanded by God to make a "selection of sacred hymns" for the Latter-day Saints. D&C 25:12 continues : "For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads." While Katherine's music might not be sung during Sacrament Meeting, I think Emma would be pleased.

You will, however, be able to hear Katherine's music often if you tune into yourLDSradio. You can stream LDS music 24/7 online or on your phone. You can also find yourLDSradio on Facebook.

Through a twist of fate and the generosity of yourLDSradio and the producers of Born Brave, I have seven copies of Katherine Nelson's Born Brave CD to give-away to my readers.
