If you lose 8% of your brain cells while you are pregnant, I am in BIG trouble, as I have 7 kids.  8 x 7 =56.  I have less than half of my brain cells left.

could you ask her a vey important question... How does she act out Psmalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God..." when her mind is spinning so fast out of control that she cant even comprehend what "still" means?

A friend asked me to comment on this for her. She wants to ask Natalie Grant to pray specifically for her. She just got out of an inpatient treatment facility not too long ago for anorexia and bulimia. She has been sexually and verbally abused and is still pretty traumatized by it. She is a girl that truly adores God and she is so inspiring. Satan just continues to throw one attack after another on her, and I honestly don't know how she can handle any of it. There is no way she could without God! But I just wanted to let you guys know that she really wants Natalie to pray for her. Thanks guys! Smile

Saw you when you toured with Jeremy Camp and Bebo at the Fresno, CA show.  We drove 3 hours from the Bay Area to see it and the concert was well worth the drive.  Brought my wife, 2 kids,  in-laws and their friends... a lot of fun.

Really enjoyed your cover of "God of this City" by Bluetree.  Very memorable!!!

BTW... as a Father I agree about the 8% thing.  But as a Husband... my wife will ALWAYS be smarter than me! (LOL).

Awaken my heart is my favorite song.  It helped me out of a funk I was in.  I was very anxious and numb and really needed something to happen.  Because I am a mother of 2 young kids I was pretty desperate because I want to be my best for them.  Every time I heard that song I cranked up the volume and screamed it out loud ( I still do but with a smile on my face).  I love it!!!

Oh Natalie!  You sang "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" at Women of Faith in Las Vegas (April) and I can't express how it impacted me.  I have tried to find a recording of it and haven't.  Can you please tell me where?  Also, would you bless everyone with singing it right now live?  Please?

I would love for Natalie to know the impact "Held" had on me when I suffered a miscarriage back on Mother's Day weekend 2008. It was one of those times in life when I truly did just need to be HELD by my Heavenly Father and that song became my anthem for getting past that blow.
God was faithful, as He always is, and I got pregnant again and was due on the very day I'd had the miscarriage the year before. I now have a gorgeous, daring, precious 13-month-old and we call him our "redemption baby" becauese God took a heinous miscarriage and turned it into something beautiful.
I love to share my story with other women who are going through or recovering from miscarriages and I try to point them to "Held," too, so that they can know that God is right there with them, holding them.
Every time I hear "Held" I get tears in my eyes...but now they are tears of joy!
Congrats on the new baby, Natalie!!!!

Your song Held really made a powerful impact in my life. The lyrics really just hit home for me when I was going through a tough time. I felt like my life had been ripped away from my grip and I was in the car just having a mental breakdown and then your song came on. It feels just so amazing to know that even when you are going through the hardest times of your life, God is holding you in His hands watching and protecting you. I just wanted to thank you so much for blessing us listeners with your music.
Thanks so much!

I just want to say that the song that has most touched my life and heart is "Held" by Natalie Grant. It was January 17th, 2010 when i laid in the hospital after finding out that we lost our daughter Mhylah because they couldnt find her heart beat and at that time i hadn't given birth to her and my uncle reached down and gave me a hug with eyes full of tears and told me listen to this song...Tears just fell from my eyes...I delivered Mhylah January 18th and lost her due to the umbilical cord being wrapped around her neck two times..My uncle bought me her cd and its still in there 5 months later...That song touches me everytime i hear it and i just feel held. Thank You Natalie.. really thank you!!

Natalie Grant has been a huge inspiration in my life ever since a women's conference in St. Louis, MO. Every one of her songs touch me somehow. But there is one in particular that stands out. Held. My best friend shot himself in the head in February this year. He made it thru. He is a living miracle. The somg 'held' has comforted me bc Natalie reminded me "when everything fell, we'd be held" I would like to thank her for her awesome work and I admire her love for Christ.

All of my best wishes to you about you being told you couldn't concieve.
My husband and I have been married 20 yrs. this June, and we weren't able to have a child. But we are still so blessed. We had fostered twice, and even tried adoption, but things didn't work out.
We had come to the conclusion if we were meant to we  would have a child, so we didn't go thru invetro. But we helped raise my niece and nephew , so they are like our kids.
All my love to you, girl.

I just want Natalie to know that I absolutely love her song "Held".  We lost my grandson 2 yrs ago, he was only 17 months old, his dad accidently shot him.  When I first heard that song I loved it immediately, because I could relate to it with my grandson. It was a difficult time but now I just imagine him in the arms of our Lord, alive and full of love and joy.  Thank you so much for using the gifts and talents God has given you to bring honor and glory to Him through song.

I mean we just lost our daughter and I felt like maybe there is something wrong with me, can i even get pregnant again, i mean just the doubt that i had in myself and you just lifted me up and lifted my spirits... i am the receptionist here at work and tears just formed... That prayer was just so strong.. and just like you said we dont know why these things happen but he has a bigger picture for us..Mhylah's due date was April 2nd, 2010 (Good Friday), Easter weekend and well me and my Fiance went to church that Sunday and got Baptized on Easter with Mhylah's earn being present.. She moved us closer to God! Thank you again for that up lifting prayer Natalie!!!!

We (my kids) and I saw you at the Celebrate America celebration on sat the 26th. We also went to the Sunset Christian Center that Sunday, when you sang "I will not be moved" everyone was sitting. I had not been to that Church and didn't know what to expect, I wanted to get up and sing and be moved by God. Thank you for being there so we could enjoy your singing praises to our Father God..Smile

It's me again, I also was told I wouldn't be able to have babies, but somehow I knew God had me in His hands and that all would be okay.  My husband and I conceived (through IVF) a few months later and had a beautiful baby boy.  2 years later we said "we should give our son a sibling" and tried the old fashion way before we did IVF again.  To our surprise 2 months later we were pregnant.  Both our kids are miracles and I praise God for them.  Congratulations Natalie!!

Natalie, thank you SO much for your prayer.  I had just gotten in the car & turned on the radio when I heard you praying for couples who "can't" conceive.  My husband & I have had all the tests & have been told there is no medical reason we haven't been able to conceive. I struggle with this daily & have been having other concerns recently.  It is always a blessing to know that someone else is praying for me, but it especially touches me when I hear someone so busy takes the time to.  THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

My husband and I saw Natalie in October.  We had no idea how much are life would change within a month.  In November our 5 year old daughter passed away very unexcpectedly.  A few days ago we were driving and No Such Thing As Perfect People came on.  We just looked at eachother at the exact time we began to think how close to perfect our life had been back in October.  Our lives may not be perfect or what we had planned, but we know that all of this is in God's perfect plan.  Our baby girl is in heaven and we will see her again someday.  Until then God has a plan for us we just have to be willing to follow where he leads.

I just wanted Natalie to know how much her song "I will not be moved" touched my life.  In November of 2008, my husband had left me for another woman and I was hardly able to get out of bed each day.  A friend of mine gave me her cd, and I began listening to that song over and over again, and it truly gave me the courage and energy to keep going. I remember being in the car, turning the song up, and just crying out to the Lord with tears streaming down my face.  God reminded me through Natalie's music that He was going to be there right beside through everything if I just stayed strong.  Thank you, Natalie for allowing God to use your beautiful voice to speak His truth into others lives!!

Hey Natalie! I am a 17 year old from Plymouth, Massachusetts, and I've been listening to your music since a friend introduced it to me about 3 years ago; I love it!! I can honestly say that God is changing my life through your music and your ministry. I love your song To Find My Strength on your Stronger CD. I love the line "when my soul is so afraid, I look to you to find my strength." I also love your song Back at My Heart from Relentless, as it's message is very personal to me and has touched my heart. I know that through every scary circumstance I face, God is right there with me, carrying me through, healing my broken heart. Thanks! Love ya and God bless you ♥

Two things: first of all, don't count on being pregnant with another little girl just because you "feel the same".  I felt totally different with my 3rd pregnancy, had morning sickness and other hormonal things that I didn't have with the first two.  Even went into false labor, which I hadn't done with the first two.  So I was convinced I was having a little girl this time.  Well, when HE was born, and the doctor said "It's a boy", I made him look again, because I was SURE he was wrong!!!  Ha!
Secondly, so now that you know that I have three boys, I will tell you that the terror in your little friend from England had nothing to do with the fact that he was a boy... it has everything to do with the fact that he's FOUR.  That is like the terrible two's but twice as bad!  My boys were pretty easy except for when they were 2 and 4... so get ready, because your little girls are almost there.  Ha!  Regardless, they're all miraculous blessings.  Congratulations Natalie!

Re: the song HELD

Today I went online to send Natalie's AWAKEN CD to a friend who just lost her 11 week old baby this week after he choked while taking a bottle.

What a wonderful way to share God's love with a family who doesn't yet know God!

For Natalie, in 2006, I lost my best friend to a massive seizure. She was only 27 when she was found lying in her room by her 8 year old daughter. We spent many times on our face before God. And her love for Jesus was the most passionate one can find! I struggled with her death so very much! It was during this time that your song "Held" ministered to my heart. Thank you so much for this song and so many others!~Sandy

I am so happy for you Natalie!  Our God is such a great God!  My husband and I have struggled with infertility for the last two years.  So many days and nights I prayed for God to give us a miracle.  Even in my darkest days I gave my total trust and praise to him.  I know that he has a plan for each one of us.  It is always in his time and we may not always understand it.

A few weeks ago We found out we are having a baby!  We feel so very blessed and give all praise to God for giving us this miracle.  He has been with us and will continue to be with us every step of the way.

I pray for a healthy pregnancy and baby for both of us.  May God use your words to give comfort and hope to all of the couples that are going thru infertility.  God Bless you Natalie!

Natalie - THANK YOU!  God ministers to me through the songs you sing.  Last year I lost my first baby at only 15 weeks gestation.  The pain and the healing process were more than I could have imagined.  My sister created a CD for me with songs to help me heal and several of your songs were on it.  Thank you for being so real in  your lyrics and for being a part of my healing.  I'm now expecting my second baby - due this December (I'm with ya, girl!  Isn't God good?!)

I am in the final week of my second IVF cycle.  Tomorrow, July 1st, is my 33rd birthday and we find out if the cycle worked on July 6th.  We've spent more money than we've had to try to have a child.  The prayer I just heard on the radio changed my day and maybe the course of my life.  Thank you, KLOVE, for turning my face back toward my Savior each time it falls.

Natalie, You r the inspiration of my girls' lives.  I am a proud mother of 3 beautiful girls and 1 stepdaugther.  I am a proud step-grandmother of 2 little angels.  It has now been 2 years since one of my grandbabies at the age of two Jesus decided to call her home.  It was the weekend before the accident happened, my daughter, Lexi was to sing one of ur songs in a youth church meeting.  That Saturday, Lexi was practicing to one of ur soundtracks when our little angel "Jess" kept pushing the button to Lexi's cd system and she said almost all that day "Aunt Lexi, sing this one again!"  The song was "In Better Hands Now". Nine days later on a Monday we got news that our baby had drowned in a swimming pool.  I thought what was I gonna do and how to pray......she was given 72 hours on a life machine then the agreement was that "Jess" would give life to someone else's love one.  So we made funeral arrangements.....To me a 2 year old angel who was just starting her life what was I going to do....Lexi walked in the room and said "Mom, I now know the reason for Jess wanting me to keep singing that song....she was letting me know what song was to be sang at her funeral."  At that point I was trying to find every reason for her not too, but Lexi insisted, she was going to sing it to JESS one more time.  And she did, Lexi sang Jess's favorite song without one mistake and at that time there wasnt one dry eye in the room.  I know that the Lord knew Jess's situation and what better hands to be in then in the Lord's hands.  I at that point knew Jesus had Jess in his hands telling me I have ur angel in my hands so no more worries.

Met you at '99 A/G General Council in Orlando & am blessed by your music.  I was told by three OB/GYNs that I would never conceive because I did not ovulate.  We prayed for a baby because that's what pre-Christians do ... pray when there are no other alternatives.  God was gracious enough to answer that prayer with a 4lb 13oz healthy little girl who nearly died at 3 1/2 months due to an intussecption of her bowel.  Again, as pre-Christians, we prayed.  The surgeon told us "if" she survived the surgery, she would have a colostomy because he would remove 18 inches of dead bowel.  During the surgery, he verified the  dead bowel (which he described as "black but not gangrenous yet") & as he preparation to cut Something told him to "wait".  He then witnessed the black tissue become pink & perfused.  She recovered, we came home with her & decided she needed to be raised in church. That was in October of 1975, we were saved in January, 1976, had 3 more babies & God gave us our 'oldest-youngest' child when he was 17-years old. Four of those children are married & we are awaiting our 15th grandchild this September.  Those children also serve the Lord in their local churches as worship leaders, children's pastor & youth pastors. Who can say no when God says "YES"!
