With the cooler fall and winter months already upon us, why not get lost in good book? Here are some new and upcoming releases to add to your playlist or bookshelf:

1. “Win from Within: Finding Yourself by Facing Yourself ,”  John Gray

Pastor and media personality John Gray recently released his new book, “Win from Within,” to help readers to win from within by facing our inner struggles. Using Biblical principles, Gray takes on bad habits, limiting patterns and more so that we can become the best versions of ourselves as God intended. “Get this book and let it speak to you as you emerge from the battles of your life and walk into the purposed place God intended for you all along! And you’ll want to read it from the beginning because the foreword was penned by none other than Steven Furtick!” Gray shared last week on his Instagram page. Keep up with Pastor Gray as he makes several speaking engagements and book signings this fall.

2. “Becoming,”  Michelle Obama

The former First Lady of the United States penned a highly anticipated memoir on the experiences that have made her who she is today. From her upbringing on the south side of Chicago to her time as serving as First Lady, the wife of  former President Barack Obama and mother of two, Michelle Obama shares personal insights with readers. Her second book,”Becoming” debuts on November 13th the same date as the kickoff of her nationwide book tour moderated by her special guests including Oprah Winfrey, Valerie Jarrett, Reese Witherspoon and more.

3. Us Against the World: Our Secrets to Love, Marriage, and Family,”  David and Tamela Mann

Singing and acting duo David and Tamela Mann have been married for 30 years and are sharing their life and love together that many have come to know on the big and small screen. Not only have they played husband and wife on television, they have recorded music together, toured, and managed their big family. Whether you’re single or married, you can get some keys to maintaining a solid Christian marriage and family while balancing careers and purpose. Releasing on November 13th of this year, the Manns are offering their new single “Good Love” for free with your book pre-order.

4. When Your Bad Meets His Good: Find Purpose in Your Pain,”   Kim Jones-Pothier

 

Known all over social media as Real Talk Kim, Pastor Kimberly Jones-Pothier is a dynamic speaker, preacher and minister. In her new book she shares her testimony of recovery from hard times, divorce and brokenness to understanding God’s plan in it all. “The points in this book are all about perception shifts—learning how to take the bad and shift it for our good.” Pothier wants readers to change their perspectives on their trials and hard seasons and see those experiences as part of “life college.” “When You Bad Meets His Good” is available on December 4th.

5. Make Room: Finding Where Faith Fits,” Jonathan McReynolds

Jonathan McReynolds took some time between making new music to write a book based on Scripture and his own personal experiences. He is not only a songwriter, but also a  blogger via his site, Life Room Talk, sharing thought provoking takes on topics affecting Christian Millennials, musicians, and more. In “Make Room”, McReynolds’ endeavors to encourage readers to make more room for God in their everyday lives, both in public and in private, to grow through an authentic relationship with God. The foreword is also written by his fellow brother in Gospel music,  Travis Greene. Be sure to make room on your reading list for this new book which is set to release soon; keep up with Jonathan for more updates on Instagram!

Todd Dulaney Releases a New Sound at “Anthems & Glory” Album Release Concert

ArtSoul Radio was able to celebrate with Todd Dulaney for his “Live” and in-person album release concert this weekend. If you missed it, we’ve got you covered! Keep reading for our full review along with a link to the full concert.

Commemorating the release of his new album “Anthems & Glory”, Todd Dulaney and his team provided those present at Freedom Baptist Church in Hillside, IL and for those viewing the event live via YouTube with an immersive experience filled with exactly what the title suggests! As Chicago begins to slowly re-open after being under tight pandemic restrictions, this night was a breath of fresh air that gave many the release they have been looking for!

The album release concert was a full house! Chicago supporters and many others travelled to show up for Todd and to be present for a powerful worship experience.

After a powerful prayer, the “Proverbs 3” singer surprised the audience with a video of him filling the room with gratitude through a heartfelt thank you for the support he’s received throughout the years since releasing his first song. That gratitude immediately turned the night into a time of nostalgia as the band begin playing some of the music the Chicagoland native has now made staples for worship all across the world!

Todd and his team set the tone from start to finish throughout this event. From his entrance during “Your Great Name” he commanded the presence of the spirit with new songs formed straight from the Word of God. With the help of His mentor in the industry Pastor Smokie Norful alongside Todd Galberth, and Pastor David Gilford, the night was a steady ascension into glory.

This album and the event were both reminders of exactly why the worship culture continues to look to DulaneyLand’s pour for sounds that are resounding invitations for God’s presence to fill every space!
