My Favorite Albums and EP’s Released in 2021

As promised, this is my list of 2021 releases that I got hooked into. Like the albums and EP’s that I discovered post, this is just a partial list and I will finalized it on January 2022. Since my musical taste is all over the place (LOL), you’ll get into different sounds and genre. Nevertheless, these jams are my favorite for this year and I think you’ll like it too.  If you want a throwback of my favorite picks in 2020, then click here.

The Video Round-Up #4

kwvm9zv

As I have mentioned on my freebie round-up, I had a one week”reading a book break”. I have to go to a short sabbatical to unclutter my mind and focus on important things. While in a short sabbatical, I explored some music and found some great artist and their music. I have three of them here that you can check out.

Norton Hall Band hails from Southern Seminary and composed of pastors studying at the seminary. They sing old hymns which they gave modern touch.

Listening to Wendell Kimbrough reminds me of Bob Dylan and John Dever. Those haunting voice and music that combines folk and gospel, you will surely get hooked on listening. His latest release Come to Me is pure gold.

Lastly,  The Corner Room which is akin to Rend Collective but sings the Psalms. Their lyrics is straight out of the ESV Bible and they perfectly fit the music and the verses. So go check their two albums on every music streaming platform you have.

I would like to add this video of the to this round-up because this became very helpful to me. I’m teaching our youth small group with the Baptist Catechism and I’m having problems understanding Question #98. The question is  “How do Baptism and the Lord’s Supper become effectual means of salvation?” The words I’m confused with is the ‘means of  salvation.” I’ved asked our FB group and the Tagalog translator of the Keach’s Catechism and thankfully they provide a clear and simple answer. And what a coincidence (and providence) that Ligonier uploaded this video.

5 Vital Things to Lighten your Hard Chores

Washing the dishes, mowing the lawn or ironing a pile of clothes is sometimes a bummer. Here some tips to help you lighten chores at home:

  1. Seek some help-call up two, three or a battalion of friends to lend a hand to you.
  2. Play some music-pump up the volume and enjoy some inspirations that will make your chores a walk in the park.
  3. Divide the chores-dividing the chores by giving each an interval to pause and rest.
  4. Choose the time of the day-what period of the day you are more in the mood or productive to get the chores done?
  5. Think of the reward- after the chore reward yourself with a 2 hour bath or tub of ice cream. Just think about the reward will lighten your work.
