Reviewed by Lins Honeyman

Laura is the writer of the "Indescribable" classic, but there's much more to the South Carolina-based singer/songwriter as this latest set shows, a polished affair that contains first class production values to complement the award-winning artist's accomplished writing style and vocal delivery. Proceedings get off to a bold start with the anthemic declaration of God's victory over the final enemy "Death Has Been Arrested" before continuing in a similar vein on the pounding title track - a song of surrender that features a fine guest vocal from Luke Brown. Elsewhere, Story offers up some suitably tender performances on the likes of "Give You Faith" - sung from the point of view of a mother to her new born baby - whilst the perfectly understated and supremely beautiful "Grace Abounds" closes the album in contemplative fashion. Story's decision - along with her big name co-writers Matt Redman and Matt Maher - to adapt an old Charles Wesley hymn in "Awake My Soul (A 1000 Tongues)" and needlessly replace the arresting and unbeatable original melody with a tune that is bland and much less memorable is perhaps the only misstep on this otherwise satisfying release.

The latest release from South Carolina-based singer/songwriter.

Grammy award winning artist, speaker, songwriter, author and worship leader Laura Story has a gift for communicating. She first connected with people when her song "Blessings" found an audience. She has since continued to draw from her life experiences and challenges to speak to the heart of the Christian faith. With reflection, vulnerability, and personal honesty, Laura once again pens songs that gift a deep spiritual connection in her newest worship-focused release "Open Hands".
