Multi-Dove award-winning recording artist and songwriter Meredith Andrews says she hit a rough patch in her life during the past couple of years but now she's back with a song of triumph. She spoke with The Christian Post about her upcoming album, Deeper, and the personal struggles that inspired the new record.
The 11-song album is set to release on Feb. 19, along with a 14-song deluxe edition that will release on the same day.
"It's been two years since I released new music and I'm not the same person I was three years ago," Andrews said. "I've walked through a lot. I've had two more children, now I have three, so that's really life altering. And my husband and I have walked through a really hard season in our marriage." more >>

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio told an atheist in the audience that he won't be "forced" to stop talking about his faith on the campaign trail and argued that atheists should want his faith to influence his decisions.
During Rubio's Monday town hall meeting in Waverly, Iowa, an atheist attendee named Justin Scott, a member of the Freedom From Religion Foundation who also runs his own YouTube channel, commented during a question and answer session on Rubio's recent campaign ad that simply features Rubio talking about how he follows his faith and that his goal is to live alongside God for eternity.
Scott argued that it seems like Rubio, who is Catholic, is more interested in running for "Pastor-in-Chief" rather than Commander-in-Chief and then asked Rubio how he would defend the rights of nontheists if he is elected president in 2016. more >>
