Nichole Nordeman – Every Mile Mattered
CD Review & Giveaway

Every Mile Mattered

The best music takes us on a revelatory journey that reveals to us the heart of the artist while helping us to connect and heal to the broken places within ourselves.

In Every Mile Mattered, the new musical release from Dove Award winning artist Nichole Nordeman, we are invited on a personal journey to take a spiritual inventory of our lives – to examine where we’ve been and what we’ve learned along the way.

The result?

A beautiful, inspiring CD filled with songs of reflection, songs of empowerment, songs you will want to play over and over again and share with your friends and family!

Leading a public life doesn’t make you immune from the everyday heartbreaks that many of us experience, and Nichole candidly shares what it’s like to look experience struggle, brokenness and regret in her songs. Every Mile Mattered is full of candor and authenticity, but also vibrancy and hope as she comes to the realization that every lesson we’ve experienced, every teardrop that’s fallen, every chapter that’s been written and closed is part of the larger, more beautiful story that God is orchestrating in our lives.

Here’s the lyric video of Every Mile Mattered – the title song from Nichole’s new CD:

And here’s the lyric video for The Sound Of Surviving – an uplifting anthem for anyone who has come to the realization that they are stronger than they know:
