Hit producer David Thulin manned the board to create the radio edit/remix of this upbeat summertime proclamation of a steadfast journey of following Christ!

Story behind the song | “Finding true north is essential for navigation. Every other direction is determined by this orienting point. In life you have an internal compass, and it affects all of your decisions, thoughts, and dreams. If you are calibrating against anything other than eternal truth it will be impossible to find the ultimate home you’re meant to have.
I love that this means we are able to explore and experience so many adventures and that there is not one path that we all must follow. It’s just that our desires are shaped by the pull of His grace and mercy. It reminds me of Psalm 37:4 “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” As you delight in Him, your desires become about Him.
One of my favorite lines in the song is “all my longings point to you.” It’s not easy, but a statement that I will ever be striving to make true. His love is true and He is truth Himself. There is no better true north to guide your life by.” -Kerrie Roberts
Boundless (buy) overview | Staying true to herself as a soulful pop singer-songwriter, Kerrie Roberts releases her first ever full length worship album. As a pastor’s daughter, Kerrie began stunning audiences at only five years old singing solos with her church choir. After much success throughout the years as a contemporary Christian artist, this album is the culmination of writing with producer/writer Chris Cron and several other notable worship leaders and contemporary Christian writers for almost a year to find the songs that best represent where Kerrie is as a worshipper, more than an artist.
Thematically the songs on this album are a statement of God’s never-ending love for us all and the freedom only He can offer. Blending Kerrie’s trademark vocal with an 80’s pop-flavored production, this upbeat modern worship album brings joy to the listener and glory to God!
