AllMusic Review by

Christian chanteuse Nichole Nordeman's third album follows in the footsteps of her previous two but ups the ante in its direct approach and sophisticated production. The singer has a fine way with inspirational lyrics, never browbeating the listener, and her music is likewise subtle yet catchy, and likely to get under the skin in a most exquisite way.

The opening "Holy" is a likely contender for WOVEN & SPUN's pick hit, with its soaring chorus and upbeat message, but the downtempo "Healed" is more typical of the album, its devotional subject matter combined with a contemporary pop arrangement. Nordeman's obvious faith and musical and lyrical talents are shown to best advantage in the graceful ballad "My Offering," a song of praise that's a summation of her philosophy and a pretty good summation of WOVEN & SPUN's mix of worship music and pop smarts.
