Before we last heard from her on Let's Fly (2001), Cheri Keaggy had become widely know in Christian circles for adult contemporary and inspirational music. She gained immediate attention through her Charlie Peacock produced debut, Child of the Father (1994). Some of her songs fit the praise and worship format, which led to the release of: There is Joy in the Lord: The Worship Songs of Cheri Keaggy (1999). But aside from the Very Best of Cheri Keaggy in 2006, it's been a long wait for something new.

Where has she been? "Over the last few years I've been marinating in all kinds of stuff, just trying to listen to God's voice and be obedient, trying to parent intentionally and grow in my relationships," said Keaggy. "The Christian life can be quite an adventure! These songs are pieces ... of that."

Because He First Loved Us opens with one of the strongest songs. Inspired by John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress, "Stay to the Middle" makes a series of contrasts between fear and faith. "Fear creeps in to keep you frozen / Faith says pray and move ahead / Fear says you will always be broken / Faith knows that broken things can mend." Deliverance is found in keeping to the middle of the path.

The music on this song and some others has a slight alternative or rock edge, which adds to the appeal. Producer Tom Hemby does an excellent job of providing a clean, organic sound with a touch of creativity.

Though this is the first release on her own label, Keaggy keeps to the style that has brought her to this place. Fans of her earlier recordings and adult contemporary pop will enjoy some of her best work.

Cheri wrote all the songs with the exception of Carole King's "You've Got A Friend," which is included as a bonus track.

I am a forever fan of this gal. Her Christian faith always comes through her recordings - all of them! She always makes a great audio recording as well!

I recently attended the Hearts at Home conference in Normal, Illinois, where Cheri put on a wonderful concert~ so honest and touching. I was not familiar with her music before, but now I am hooked! I met her sweet husband who recommended this CD and "Let's Fly" to me. I have had them on almost non-stop ever since. The music itself is gorgeous, but most of all the lyrics are thoughtful, meaningful, clear, humble, and inspiring. I think Cheri is a really talented songwriter, never swaying from her purpose, and her Christian perspective is just what I need to hear. I think the masterpiece of the album is "You'll Always Be my Son"~ I have to stop what I am doing and listen everytime it comes on. Having her music in my house and on my mind lifts my spirit and I encourage everyone to purchase this wonderful album.
