God of Every Story (Fair Trade Services)

FOR FANS OF: Kari Jobe, Meredith Andrews
Rating: 3 Stars
Laura Story’s lovely voice and songwriting are enough to carry the title track and the inspiring, “I Can Just Be Me,” to solid heights. The rest of the album emanates from a place of vulnerability, borne from her husband’s health issues and the birth of their first child. The songs certainly span the gamut of life’s ups and downs, though not quite as seamlessly as her previous work. “You Gave Your Life” hearkens to vintage Amy Grant, alluding to Laura’s own developing status as a CCM icon.
