My boyfriend asked me this weekend if I'd burn him a CD of Christian music that he'd enjoy (more upbeat, encouraging type songs) - PRAISE GOD! Some moments in life are so priceless! That was one of them - I contained my excitement from his request - but as I moved into the next moment I felt stressed - I must find the best songs to put on this cd - it's imperative! :) LOL

Any help is appreciated. Here are some initial songs I've thought of:

Blessed be your name

Here I am to Worship

not exactly labeled Christian music but it was used in our church one week and it fits for my boyfriend
Your life is now

He loves the Nicole Nordeman songs I've played for him like "Gratitude".
and Lifehouse "Everything" conjures up images of the skit which is powerful.

Anyway... I'm still searching for some energizing Christian tunes. Can you suggest some great ones?

Thanks!

I really like Luke Wood, Misty Edwards, Phil Wickham, John Mark McMillan and some Jars of Clay.

I don't know what you like, but you can have a test of these anyway!
I really recommend trying out Luke Wood's.

I'm a BIG fan of Third Day, and not just because they're from here. I've been listening to various types of rock my whole life, and they do great christian rock. They have a couple of CDs performing the standard praise music in their own style, and several albums of original compositions. I'd recommend anything they've done.

Not to be a stick in the mud, but I pray that you are paying for the songs that you burn. No accusations, but I am amazed at how many of my Christian friends give me burned discs. It's theft and against the law of our land. Please be careful everybody.

That said:

Jennifer Knapp, LeCrae, & Michael W. Smith are a few of my mainstream favorites.

I like to listen to classical and Jazz and listen for God's voice and pray more than anything these days, but that's probably not what your friend is looking for.

Blessings,
