My last post here...I think

So it's been a while since I posted anything here, I know.  It's seems as though I have good intentions but they don't make it to fruition.  My desire to blog here has dwindled a bit.  I get excited, but it seems that maybe I'm the only one who is.

Being that they new year is upon us, I have decided that I should make some changes, and this was an easy decision.  It is too difficult trying to maintain two different blogs, so I will be continuing my Faith Bits section at The Coupon Sista instead of writing here.  There you will find my Christian book and music reviews, along with the occasion featured video.

As far as The Bronson's YouTube videos, we will keep doing those so stay tuned.

I Can't Shake This Thing!

Have you ever had something in your heart that you felt you were called to do? Something that no matter what happened, you couldn't shake? That's what Living Light Books & Music is to me. I love this music! It's a part of me I can't deny, regardless of what road life takes me.
It's kind of a love/hate/love relationship. We tried to relaunch a year or so ago, but it didn't seem to take off.
But it keeps pulling at me. I can't let it go. It's in me!
I'm going to do things a bit differently. Take it slow, but be more persistent. I plan to do more blogging about the Gospel Music industry, all the news, releases, etc.
I also plan to be real with you all. Share some personal feelings that I have and maybe a few You Tube videos.
And who knows, maybe y'all will want some music from us.
We'll see how it all plays out.
But for now, stay tuned. Ask questions. Leave requests. And by all means, please pray for us in our endeavours!
God Bless!

Sho Baraka Leaves 116 Clique

Image credit

Say it ain't so! Sho Baraka has left the building! Well, 116 Clique that is.  And, oh how sad I am- and a little late! 

I know y'all love Lecrae, and Trip Lee, but Sho was actually my favorite of the bunch.   Don't get me wrong, we are all Unashamed in this house, but I am sad to see Sho Baraka go.

But, we have not heard the last of him.  No he's off doing a new thing with a new crew.
Take a look at his website for more info on the subject.

Da Truth Music Video

Da Truth has put it all out there with his new release, "The Whole Truth" and I love it.  From the very beginning, this man has been very candid about his marital unfaithfulness, and now his CD delves deeper into his personal life, struggles, and victories.

What a blessing to see his new video on tour - with a little appearance of his wife.  Ain't it awesome how God heals?

What do you think of this video?

Ambassador Tells All on 700 Club

Ambassador is back at it with his new release, "Stop The Funeral".  I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about how it would sound after his very public fall from grace.  But I have to say, it's a nice CD.  It's more mellow than his previous projects, which I guess is to be expected.

But, I still felt like something was lacking.  It seemed as though there were never any real explanation from him of what exactly took place.  Not that he has to tell all his business, but many fans have looked to him as a role model,  and sometimes even a pastor.  You kinda need to set the record straight- for them.

Then, a friend asked me if I had seen his television interview on the "700 Club".   She told me he appeared with his wife and I had better watch it.

Finally, I can now better understand (without all the grimy details) what he went through.  In fact, I know there are some saints that have gone through the same thing, whether they say it or not. 

I definitely have much more respect for him now.  As a huge fan, I felt like I was left hanging.  Now, I feel as though he has "cleared the air" on the matter and now it's time to move on!
Thank you, Ambassador.

If you haven't yet seen the interview on, take a look below.

So what do you think of the interview?  Does it seemed watered down to you?  Or are you glad he he just set the record straight?
