Today I have someone really special to share with you. You know that when I feature musicians, bloggers, and friends here on my blog that I believe in them, love them and know you will be encouraged by them. Today's feature is so exciting and close to my heart, so take a minute to get to know the amazing lady I'm about to introduce you to. You will be encouraged, girls!
Remember the Christian singing group Point of Grace? Terry Lang Jones (visit her website here) is one of the original members of the group and sang/toured with the band for 14 years, leaving the road to be a stay at home mom and wife. She is now entering a new season of creating an indie record! I've loved Terry's voice and her music since the POG days - I got their album "Life Love and Other Mysteries" on tape (yes, a tape...this was way before iPods, y'all :) for my birthday when I turned 10 years old. From that time forward, these sweet singers became my #1 favorite band. My sister Mandy and I and our best friend Rachel thought they were so pretty, cool, and talented. We bought their posters and hung them on our bedroom walls. They became our role models, not just for their music but for their hearts and message of faith. Through the years, I bought all their CDs, performed their songs to tracks at church, read their books, and drove with Mom & Dad to several of their concerts in California. These ladies made such an impact on me. I will always remember waiting in line for hours to meet Terry and the POG girls. My sister and our two friends were literally the very last girls in a very long line of fans. When we finally got to the table (wearing our POG t-shirts) to meet the ladies, we were so nervous. I'll never forget how sweet, attentive, and kind Terry and the other girls were. It made such a huge impact on me at the time - how they took the time to talk to us, ask our names, chat with us, and make us feel special.
Her album "I Will Speak" is releasing in just a few days and is available for pre-order right now at iTunes! This Saturday, 10/26/2013 you can purchase Terry's album HERE!
I asked Terry for one piece of advice for my young women readers here at Sweetness Itself Blog and she graciously shared this wise answer:
