Mandisa: It's Christmas *Christmas Angel Edition* (giveaway)

I love Christmas.
Picking out a live tree.
Pulling out the decorations from the attic.
Unwrapping ornaments that haven't been seen for twelve months.
Placing every one just so on the tree.


Finding the perfect gifts for those you love.
Wrapping them with care.
Watching the faces light up with glee.

Snowball fights.
Fireplace warmth.
Hot cocoa
And It's a Wonderful Life.

Soaking in the TRUE meaning of it all....

And so much more....but what REALLY helps me truly get "in the mood" of the Christmas season are the sounds of the holidays ... ie: Christmas songs!!

Yay!
So I am so excited to tell you about this rocking album.


From the woman who brought you the soulful melodies of Stronger and the upbeat joyfulness of Good Morning comes this amazing 2012 Christmas album, It's Christmas (Christmas Angel Edition).

Mandisa knocks it out of the park....seriously!

While the album is filled with holiday favorites, like Little Drummer Boy and Feliz Navidad, done in Mandisa's own personal style, the best part of her musical styling on this holiday collection are the original songs.

From the title song, It's Christmas, that makes us reminisce and remember what Christmas is all about to Somebody's Angel which challenges us to reach out to those around us who are lost and broken to my personal favorite, Christmas Makes Me Cry, which reminds us to take time to process our own losses or  to notice the hurting of the lonely, the forgotten, or the left-behind at Christmas as well as the beautiful picture of the bittersweet symphony of how a babe came to give His life for us.

Hope.
Gratitude.
Fun.

That is what this album provokes in your heart.
And to be honest with you...it exceeded my expectations
For REALS.

How can one pick a favorite Christmas Song? I don't think I can do it... but I adore "Winter Snow" by Audrey Assad and Chris Tomlin. And I love "How Many Kings" by Downhere and as far as the cherished hymns? O Holy Night of course! :)

Oooo...Mandisa actually covers that song on this album!!

I think that my favorite Christmas song has got to be "Go Tell it on the Mountain." It was always a tradition in my church on Christmas eve, and it reminds me of what my life as a christian should be like. I should be full of the Joy that only my father can bring, and unashamed to tell everyone else.
