released August 24, 2015

I want to thank my first love, Jesus Christ. Everything I do is done for His Glory and for His name.

To my kids Kalon, Kassidy and Kenna, I pray the words to these songs will be a reflection of my heart toward God, our family and our country. My hope is that they will always cause you to remember who you are, and whose you are.

This album was made possible because of the support from so many who gave towards Krista's crowd funding campaign. A heart felt thank you to all.

Production Acknowledgments: Special Thanks to David John. You sir, are a creative genius. There's no way I could have done this without you. There are no words to express how grateful I am for you and your family. You are an indispensable member of the team!

Thank you Jason Burks. Your creativity and willingness to help a friend has taken the message further than I ever could have on my own. Keep conquering mountains.

Thank you Ben Winterman. Your technical expertise has been not only helpful, but crucial from day one. You have been so kind and never asked for anything in return.

Thanks to all of you for being such wonderful friends. I pray God richly blesses the work of your hands in the future.

Track Name: Born Free
With no agenda I'm a single voice in the wilderness.
Drowned out by the noise created by giants in the land.
There's a reason I'm standing in the midst of the madness.
It matters less if I'm heard and more that I say what must be said.

It may not be now, but some day you'll understand
that the gift of power is the kindness in your hands.

I'm not falling before you begging for mercy. (groveling at your throne)
But to speak the truth to say how it should be. (I know I'm not alone)
We are the hands and feet not the enemy,
We are born free.

It's so easy to get drawn in to the foolish games.
A paper kingdom where strength is only illusion.
Some words should be spoken, we're called to be unafraid.
To be the voice of reason in a world full of confusion.

It may not be now, but one day you'll understand
that the gift of power is the kindness in your hands.

I'm not falling before you begging for mercy. (groveling at your throne)
But to speak the truth to say how it should be. (I know I'm not alone)
We are the hands and feet not the enemy,
We are born free. Oh we are born free yeah!

We are the hands and feet not the enemy,
We are born free.

We are the hands and feet not the enemy,
We are born free yeah

We are born free yeah.
Track Name: Bold and Courageous
You hear their voices every day in the come and go.
They wag their finger in your face and look down their nose,
and they promise the things that will chain your soul.

Indoctrination is the method they will use by choice.
Until the world believes the lie in a single voice they say,
there's no way to do it on your own.

We’re meant to be bold and courageous,
find your own way through the wilderness.
A prize fighter, walk the high wire,
bold and courageous.

It's not permitted to be the one you want to be.
You need to know your place, resistance is futility.
Don't be afraid, just take your medicine.

Mind your manners and act the way the others do. Leave everything to them and trust they'll take care of you.
Just relax in your cage and they'll be your friend.

We’re meant to be bold and courageous,
find your own way through the wilderness.
A prize fighter, walk the high wire,
bold and courageous.

Speak the words they say are true, look away and fall in line. Can you be sure they know what is best for you?
It will only cost your lifetime.

We’re meant to be bold and courageous,
find your own way through the wilderness.
A prize fighter, walk the high wire,
bold and courageous.
Track Name: Don't Give Up
We lift our eyes up for a champion, always searching for the perfect one. While the answer is hidden in our hands

For the broken, for the schemer, for the down and out and for the dreamer. Every heart and soul deserves a chance.

Don't give up on us! Remember where we've been. If we hold on to the end we win. Don't give up on love! We can run against the wind. If we fight on til the end we win.

If we remember who we're meant to be, like a lighthouse on a stormy sea. Find the strength of heart to take a stand. For the broken, for the schemer, for the down and out and for the dreamer. Every heart and soul deserves a chance.

Don't give up on us! Remember where we've been. If we hold on to the end we win. Don't give up on love! We can run against the wind. If we fight on til the end we win.

When it rains it pours. The temptation is to lock the doors. My inclination is to hide away and keep praying for a brighter day.
But that won't bring the world the change we need, it's got to be you, it's got to be me, standing together.
Don't wait for a hero, we need each other.

Don't give up on us! Remember where we've been. If we hold on to the end we win. Don't give up on love! We can run against the wind. If we fight on til the end we win.
Track Name: I Am America
Pay no attention to the people in the street crying out for accountability.
Make a joke of what we believe, say we don't matter cause you disagree.

Pretend your kings, sit on your throne.
Look down your noses at the peasants below.
I've got some some news, we're taking names.
We're waiting now for the judgment day.

I am America one voice united we stand.
I am America, one hope to heal our land.
I will not give up on this fight
I will not fade into the night
I am America.

You preach your tolerance but lecture me?
Is there no end to your own hypocrisy?
Your god is power, you have no shame
your only interest is political gain.

You hide your eyes and refuse to listen.
you play your games and abuse the system.
you stuff your pockets while Rome is burning
I've got a feeling that the tide is turning.

I am America one voice united we stand.
I am America, one hope to heal our land.
I will not give up on this fight
I will not fade into the night
I am America.
Track Name: Calm in the Chaos
Zero visibility, I am blind but once could see. Waters rising all around. Troubles try to pull me down. I am anchored by the peace. Holding on to this belief, Calm in the chaos, still to the waters,
fragrance after the storm. The song that fills the air when morning comes. Hand to the hopeless, mending the broken, strong and loving arms. To a world in need of peace I am called to be Calm In The Chaos‬.

Kingdoms rise and then they fall, even kings will lose it all. Heaven and earth will pass away, only His love will remain.. I am anchored by the peace holding on to this belief…

Rising tide, holding on for dear life. We were made to do more than just survive. Finding balance between the fight and full surrender, He is the answer, so let us be…

Calm in the chaos, still to the waters, fragrance after the storm. The song that fills the air when morning comes. Hand to the hopeless, mending the broken, strong and loving arms. To a world in need
of peace I am called to be Calm In The Chaos.
Track Name: Remember Who We Are
It's our time to take a stand, remember who we are.
There's a call across this land, remember who we are.
We were a city on a hill, a candle in the dark.
It started long ago now we have come so far.

We keep our faith when there's no way out.
When there's little hope we show no doubt.
We go the distance no matter how far, oh
Remember Who We Are

We paid a price to be free, remember who we are.
With our blood sweat and tears, remember who we are.
Will our children be the ones asking us one day
why we didn't do enough, why we gave it all away.

We keep our faith when there's no way out.
When there's little hope we show no doubt.
We go the distance no matter how far, oh
Remember Who We Are

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes
we will run and not be faint.
The time has come for taking chances
We are the masters of our fate, oh

We keep our faith when there's no way out.
When there's little hope we show no doubt.
We go the distance no matter how far, oh
Remember Who We Are

We keep our faith when there's no way out.
When there's little hope we show no doubt.
We go the distance no matter how far, oh
Remember Who We Are
Track Name: Foreign Land
He stood alone, a middle aged man.
Trying to forget what he could not understand.

The last time he saw his brother he wasn't quite a man
but he left home to fight a battle somewhere in a foreign land.

And he received his brothers letters whether sunshine or rain,
and he can't forget the moment the last letter came.

And he fell in a foreign land.
The price of freedom is paid again.
The Jungles weep and the rivers cry
for countless souls
who gave their lives on foreign land.

She held his hand and said this is not goodbye
with one last tender kiss and teardrops in her eyes
she said it won't be very long till our dreams all come true
and when I get back home I'm gonna marry you.

And somewhere in a foreign land.
The price of freedom is paid again.
The mountains weep and the deserts cry
for countless souls
who gave their lives on foreign land.

We live our lives from day to day
with little thought of the price they pay
their blood and tears they give away for our freedom.

And they fell in a foreign land.
The price of freedom is paid again.
The mountains weep and the deserts cry
for countless souls
who give their lives on foreign land.
Track Name: Love Made Me Whole
I was young and innocent not a worry in my mind.
Stared out the window and dreamed about another place in time.
Rode my Huffy down the highway to the Riverside Cafe.
Never felt so young and free as I did in those days.

Since those tender years I've wandered far away.
Like flowers withering those memories just fade.

Broken hearted but mended back again.
Still have the scars to prove the weight of all my sin.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah Love, Love made me whole again.

I had lost my innocence through the cracks it slipped away.
And I've been fighting half my life to find a better way.
In and out of death and shadow, finally I saw the light
on a hill I laid my burdens, traded them for life.

Beauty for ashes and comfort for pain.
I've found that I can have my innocence again.

Broken hearted but mended back again.
Still have the scars to prove the weight of all my sin.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah Love, Love made me whole again.

Give him your burden of sorrow, your wounded heart,
your shattered dreams.
He has the hands of a healer, the arms of father,
the heart a king.
There's not a road you have wandered or depth you have fallen
that He hasn't been.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah Love, Love made me whole
Love made me whole, Love made me whole again.
Track Name: You and Me
You don't need another love song
but I'm gonna write it just the same.

The years have changed us as they've come and gone
but there are some things that remain.

I see the changes in the mirror
from who I was so long ago
and the things you always wanted
well I'm still working on those
but for now I'm alright just following our dreams
You and me, just you and me.

(Na Na's)

There's a chapter in each story
that makes you want to lay it down
but in the end you'll find it's worth it all love
and better days will come around

Knowing you'll wake up right beside me
through the years we're growing old.
Holding hands as we're drifting off to sleep
Til we're just another tale to be told.

But for now I'm alright just making memories
you and me just you and me.

(Na Na's)

You and me, you and me.
You and me, you and me.

You don't need another love song
but I'm gonna write it just the same.
