Day One--The Soundtrack of Your Life

So, I'm going to take a shot at this 30 Day Blog Challenge thing. Since I tend to neglect my poor blog, maybe this will help. And for the record, I didn't make up these topics, I found the list online. Here we go...

As I've said before, I wish my life was a real live musical. There is no way I can fit all of my favorite songs in one post, so here are ten of my current favorites (minus the songs from Glee and The High School Musical trilogy that I absolutely LOVE).

I’ll Fly Away—I love hymns, especially this one. Really, who doesn’t want to hang out on the celestial shores of Heaven? I know I sure do. Just a few more weary days here on Earth and we’ll fly home to Jesus!

She’s Everything, Brad Paisley—I know it’s corny, but one day I want my husband to feel this way about me. And I want him to sing it to me all the time. Annndddd if he can play the guitar (or piano) that’s a definite plus for him.

If I Die Young, The Band Perry—definitely one of my newer favorites. However, if I die an early death I would like to be sent down the river in a pretty satin dress.

Lead Me, Sanctus Real— watch “The Story Behind ‘Lead Me.” You will never listen to this song the same way again. What a powerful song and testimony. I have been blessed with the most amazing father here on this earth and he has shown me a beautiful example of the love of Christ. He has led my family with strong hands and he never ceases to amaze me. Every time this song comes on KLOVE I get teary eyed thinking about the Godly men in my life and the way they have changed my life and continue to do so.

Move Shake Drop REMIX—this song will forever remind me of my sweet Delta Gamma sisters (I know, super cheesy) and the amazing times we had. Dancing with Madeline, Saralauren, Lori Beth, and Hayes to this song in the chapter room is still one of my favorite memories. I cannot imagine my college years without the girls I have come to love so much!

What Love Really Means, JJ Heller—This song is a tearjerker, but it is such a beautiful illustration of Christ’s love for me! No matter how imperfect I am and no matter how many mistakes I make He will “love me for me,” how comforting is that!?

Tearin’ Up My Heart, N’SYNC—when I was in fourth grade I would have chopped off my right arm to hear JC and Lance to sing me this song. I went to the concerts, watched the Disney TV specials, and even bought the dolls. Too bad the latest generation of tweens has never heard of N’SYNC, Bacstreet, or Lizzie McGuire. What is this world coming to?

He Won’t Get It, Sweetwater Jade—I know most people don’t know who this band even is, but they’re amazing and I love the girls who are a part of it. Shout out to Whit, Jean, and Kelsey!

For Good, Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth from Wicked—Hands down my favorite Broadway production, EVER. I have so many incredible friends and one of the most amazing families I could ever ask for. They have all taught me so much and I don’t know where I would be without them. If not for them, who knows what I would’ve become.

My Hallelujah Song, Julianne Hough—of course this one had to make my list of favorites. I think this song can describe how I finally feel-at peace and content with my life. I have finally stopped looking to others to complete my life.
