Hey there, sweet friends!
We get to take this Saturday between plans to finally spill all the beans about this big announcement we’ve been hinting at for you!
First, a little background…
Twice in the last year, She Reads Truth has paused from our typical Bible-reading plans to take a week to focus on favorite old hymns and the Scriptures that inspired them. Just a slightly different approach from the norm, but one that has resonated (see what I did there?) with our readers big-time!
Next week begins our third hymns reading plan—Hymns III. Only this time, instead of digging through Spotify for examples of the hymns we are writing about, we decided to take a big leap of faith and have some very talented friends help us record a 5-song EP to accompany the study! Woo!!
A rundown of the songs/artists…
Amazing Grace (Ellie Holcomb)
Great is Thy Faithfulness (Sandra McCracken/Thad Cockrell)
Be Thou My Vision (Mandy Mann)
What Wondrous Love Is This (Stacy Lantz)
When I Survey The Wondrous Cross (Sandra McCracken/Thad Cockrell)
I know – it’s a ridiculously talented little roster. Sandra, Ellie and Mandy are also guest-writing the days for “their” hymns in the reading plan! So fun.
Why this project is so important to us…
You probably know by now how stuck-like-glue we are to the SRT mission: Women in the Word of God every day. We love what an invitation to the Word these hymns have been and continue to be. They are so worshipful and steeped in solid theology—a beautiful way to meet with the Lord. We love how in-line with our mission this new endeavor truly is!
The She Reads Truth Hymns EP launches MONDAY, MAY 25th on iTunes and anywhere digital music is sold. The Hymns reading plan launches the same day, free on the shereadstruth.com site and the SRT app! Yep, it’s free both places! It’s a perfect time to try the app if you haven’t before, and invite your friends to try it, too!
We are so looking forward to this big, fun toe-dip into the music industry all together as a community! (And please laugh out loud with us at how hilarious it is that we get to collectively say in all seriousness, “Our album drops May 25th”!)
See you Monday, friends!
Love and hymns,
Raechel & Amanda
