This brand new song was written in a time of prayer, as we face a time of great turmoil and uncertainty in our world. It offers hope in Jesus, and His invitation to COME to Him with our every need and concern, because He is there waiting for us.

God With Us

Cyndi Aarrestad

In cart Not available Out of stock

Original Christmas songs in classic Cyndi style....with a variety of styles from country to inspirational, Messianic praise to joyous worship, bringing a fresh sound to the season! I love Christmas music! Both the traditional carols and newer songs find a place in my heart, helping me focus on the true Reason for the season and God's precious gift of love to us. This CD brings an offering of 12 original songs - spanning almost 30 years of songwriting! The songs are some of my favourites, and are ones I have often shared at Christmas events. My hope is that they will bring you joy, comfort, hope, peace, and most of all, a touch of heaven's love as you listen. Be assured you are not alone....for Emmanuel has come! God is with us. Jesus came to earth so we could know Him and He could live in us. That changes everything. As you prepare for this Christmas, I pray that you will be surrounded by, and reminded of, all the true blessings from the One who was born to bring us life. Special thanks again to Dennis and our children for their love, support and patience as they endured the long hours it took to get this project done in time! Thanks to Chandal, Dylan, Brendan, Cole and Darryl for sharing your talent and making the songs sound great! Most of all, thank You, Jesus, for coming to earth to be our Saviour, and for sharing Your gifts with us. Share the Gift! Share God’s love! Thanks for listening!

Made to Worship, Vol. 1

Cyndi Aarrestad

In cart Not available Out of stock

Songs of praise and worship in a simple, sing-able style, inviting the listener to join in and experience a time of heart-felt worship to Almighty God!

Worship God. That's what we were created to do. Nothing and no one else is worthy of the praises in our hearts. Nothing brings us into God's presence quite like praising and worshiping Him. It lifts Him up, but it also lifts US up! Our perspective is changed when we are offering our sacrifice of praise. Our attitude changes too, because worship and adoration of our LORD opens our hearts up to Him in amazing ways. Countless songs have been written, including the ancient song-book of the Psalms, but we never exhaust the ways to exalt and honour our God. After all, we will be singing His praises for all eternity! These simple songs express my heart's praise and gratitude - they were born after or during times of prayer, in simple expressions of love and thanks, while going about my day - working, driving, or just responding to the Spirit's nudge to pick up the guitar or sit at the piano and receive His gift of song. I pray they will draw you into His sweet presence in a powerful, precious way, and fill your heart to overflowing! Join with me in lifting up the name of Jesus and sing on!!!

Pray

Cyndi Aarrestad

In cart Not available Out of stock

Songs inspired by scripture and in times of prayer - focused on the need for, blessings found in, and the power of prayer. Simple, worshipful songs of encouragement about spending time in God's presence and seeking Him.

Prayer. The lifeline of the Christian. Unlimited access to the full resources of God…. Essential discipline of the faith….Mystery of communion with God….Channel of blessing…Source of strength and comfort...Taught and modelled by Jesus…The one thing His disciples asked that He teach them…

There are so many aspects of prayer and so much encompassed by it. Simple enough for the smallest child to embrace, yet elusive to the reasoning of the human mind. Throughout the Bible and all of human history, prayer has played a pivotal role. It’s influence is immeasurable. Only heaven knows the countless prayers that have been offered and the answers they produced.

Personally, prayer holds a special place in my heart. My mother was a prayer warrior, and I saw firsthand the results of her sincere and fervent cries to the throne. She demonstrated the faithful ministry of an intercessor and through it, left an eternal impact for God’s kingdom. I too have been moved to intercede, and have often felt the weight and the glory of that calling. It is the greatest privilege to wait in the holy presence of the God of the Universe - to lift up your heart, your spirit, your praise, your requests, your needs, your gratitude and your listening ear to Him. To pour out your soul…and then receive the gifts of life and hope that flow from Him. To sense true joy, be overwhelmed with unexplainable peace and be immersed in perfect love. So much that we neglect to access far too often and that we desperately need.

My desire in sharing these songs is that they would draw you into a deeper and richer life of prayer. That they would awaken you to its value and encourage you to make it a priority, and that spending time with God will be an ever greater part of your everyday experience. Blessings await you….

2 Chron. 2:14; Jeremiah 33:3; Luke 11:9; 1 Thes. 5:17; Hebrews 4:16; Phil. 4:6,7; James 5:16; Rom. 8:26

Thank you to Dennis and our children for their love, patience and encouragement through this session! (and for lending your voices!) Lord Jesus, I am filled with gratitude for Your gifts, Your presence and Your grace. May these songs bring glory to You!

Dedicated to my mother.....thank you Mom for being such an amazing example of a prayer-filled life.

Sing with All the Angels

Cyndi Aarrestad

In cart Not available Out of stock

Original Christmas songs in a inspirational/country gospel style. Celebrating the joy of the season and the blessings of the birth of our Saviour.

Christmas music is one of my favourite parts of the season! I love to sing and listen to the traditional carols, but I also treasure the newer songs that celebrate the birth of our Saviour. It always amazes me that there are such diverse ways to tell the Christmas story, and so many different aspects one can focus on. Every year several more songs of the season are written as I ponder the wonders of that first Christmas night in Bethlehem. My hope as I share these songs is that you will be inspired anew by the joyous Good News the angels proclaimed - Christ is born! Emmanuel - God has come to be with us as the Saviour & hope for the world. May the Prince of Peace fill your heart & home with His presence in a special way, and may His love & joy surround you. Sing with all the angels!!

All praise to Jesus Christ - thank You for Your gifts and for the opportunity to share them!
Thank you to Dennis & our precious family for enduring all my recording sessions (and frustrations!), and for contributing to this project in so many ways.

Mercy Calls

Cyndi Aarrestad

In cart Not available Out of stock

Inspirational songs in an easy-listening, acoustic style with strong Biblical lyrics.

This CD was originally produced as a benefit CD for a friend. It is a collection of mainly previously released songs spanning about 20 years, with a theme of helping/sharing/serving others by showing God's love and mercy. The title song is a recent one (January 2016), inspired by an article on the Good Samaritan by Jeanne Damoff - how we are called to show mercy to people in need, and how that may cost us, whether in time, effort, comfort, money or possessions. I had planned to use it as a download linked to donating to a charity that's important to me, but I never dreamed it would first be used on a CD to help our dear friends and neighbours after a fire destroyed their house. Maybe God was reminding me that charity and mercy is as much needed close to home as across the globe! I hope it brings a blessing to you, and that it inspires you to keep reaching out and making a difference in your world! Together, let's use the gifts God has given us to reach out to others with His love, compassion and hope. All songs (c) Cyndi Aarrestad; this CD (c) 2016

Lessons from the Word

Cyndi Aarrestad

In cart Not available Out of stock

An easy-listening album that explores various Scriptures and the lessons taught in them.

"For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword...." (Hebrews 4:12a NKJV) It is filled with God's instructions, wisdom, love and truth, and this collection of songs draws deeply from its pages. They were inspired by reading the passages, in times of prayer and through messages shared by others. Because the Word is alive, as we prayerfully read it, God's truths are impressed upon our hearts, and we are changed by it. I pray that the lessons which became real to me and spoke to my heart, will speak to yours as well, and that these songs will minister the Truth of the Word in a fresh and inspiring way. May it also encourage us to spend more time searching out the endless treasures contained in the Bible, as we spend time with the Author and allow His words to breathe life and hope into us every day.

As always, I give thanks and praise to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, for all He has done for me, and for His gift of song which He entrusted to me. My precious family is always the team that encourages, strengthens, loves and supports me, and I can never thank them enough for enduring my recording frustrations and delays, and standing with me in this ministry. It brings me such joy to have our children singing with me on several of the tracks, and I appreciate their willingness to join me.

Scripture references: Grow In Grace - 2 Peter 3:18a, Colossians 1:10, Ephesians 4:15, Ephesians 2:21 Guard Your Heart - 1 Peter 2:11, Proverbs 4:23, Philippians 4:8 Sitting At My Feet - Luke 10:38-42 How Great and Mighty Is Our God - Isaiah 40:12, Psalm 33:6, Psalm 104:2, Job 38, Colossians 1:17 If We'd Be Forgiven - Matthew 18:21-35 Once I Was Blind, But Now I See - John 9:1-41 When They Sang His Praises - Acts 16:23-34, Joshua 6:20 Let Our Lamps Be Brightly Burning - Matthew 25:1-13, Revelation 19:7 God Of The Impossible - various - Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, 1 Kings 17:1 Unto Me - Matthew 25:35-45 One Hour With Me In Prayer - Matthew 26:36-45 I'll Stand On The Promises Of God - Numbers 13,14, Joshua 6, Daniel 6, 1 Samuel 17 With A Thankful Heart - Luke 17:12-19

May you be blessed as you listen, and strengthened in the ways of the Lord.

Names of God

Cyndi Aarrestad

In cart Not available Out of stock

This Christian worship CD focuses on the Hebrew names of God and their meanings, which give us a glimpse of His nature and attributes. The simple songs are keyboard/guitar based in a Messianic praise and worship style.

This latest CD, Names of God, is somewhat of a departure from my usual style. Corresponding to the Hebrew name theme, the music for a number of the songs is a Messianic worship style. It is both joyful, reflective and worshipful. These Hebrew names of God have always fascinated me, and as I meditated on them, over a period of several days in the spring of 2011, these songs poured into my heart. The list is by no means complete, but it gives us a glimpse of God's attributes, qualities and majesty. As we call upon His name, we find in Him the response to our every need. And as we focus on Who He is, we will recognize His authority, be drawn closer to Him, and be changed. My prayer is that as you hear and sing His names, you will come to know and love Him more; becoming more aware of His presence as you worship our awesome God - the Holy One. He alone is worthy of all praise.

I grew up in a Christian family where singing and music were always a part of our home. Both of my parents played multiple instruments, and all of us children learned to play several as well. We often sang at senior’s homes and other special events. At about age 14 I started writing songs on the piano, and later learned the guitar which is now what I usually play and compose with. Many of the songs I write are simple praise choruses and children’s songs, but I have also written numerous full-length songs with a style I would describe as a combination of praise/inspirational/country gospel. I have also written and performed many songs customized for special events, such as weddings, dedications, anniversaries, family reunions, Christmas programs, funerals, etc.. I have written over 1,500 songs, and have made 10 recordings in a friend’s home studio, with my latest five recorded at my home. I also had one CD recorded by the CBC for their radio show “Road Records” after being chosen in their contest, and I had a song chosen by a Nashville company to be featured in their demo showcase, which was made available to publishers and performers throughout North America. I have had some recent international radio exposure, including having several songs on the European Country Music charts, and an internet presence on various music sites.

I believe God has given me a gift to write music, and I am looking to share these songs, wherever He opens up an opportunity. My desire is to honor & glorify Him by sharing what He has given to hopefully encourage and edify the body of Christ.

Jesus Loves You

Cyndi Aarrestad

In cart Not available Out of stock

This CD features songs about God's love, grace and forgiveness and portrays the truth of the cross in a very personal and powerful way. It reminds us of our need for salvation, and the amazing gifts of grace and love that God offers to each every person.

This project was inspired by a visit to a young offender facility, where we sang and shared the message of God’s love and salvation. Some of the young men had never heard the words “Jesus loves you”, and my heart was burdened for those who had never been told that amazing truth. The title song came the following day, as I so strongly felt this was a message that needed to be proclaimed. I was compelled to create a CD with the theme of God’s love, grace and forgiveness that would portray the truth of the cross in a very personal & powerful way. For those who have never heard about salvation, I pray these songs will touch your heart & prompt you to turn your life over to the God who loves you. For those who have drifted away from your loving Father, may you be drawn back into His welcoming arms. He is waiting for you. And for those are very familiar with Calvary’s story, may these songs awaken a fresh realization of what Jesus did for us.

Overcomers

Cyndi Aarrestad

http://store.cdbaby.com/cd/cyndiaarrestad10

Simple scripture choruses and worship songs in an easy-listening, inspirational style.

The songs on this CD center around the themes of overcoming, spiritual warfare & God's strength. They were written over a span of several years, during times of prayer, while reading & meditating on the Word or after hearing inspired messages. I have been conscious of God speaking to His people about the spiritual battles we face & His call to remain faithful & be overcomers. My desire is to share what I have been given to encourage, strengthen & build up the body, reminding us all of God's promises & the certain destiny of the Church to be victorious in & through Christ. Thanks again to my Lord for His gifts & the opportunity to use them, to my family for their support & patience & to all those who contributed by sharing of their time & talents. May we all stand together in the strength & power of our God & press on as overcomers! All songs (c) Cyndi Aarrestad, 2010 www.cyndiaarrestad.ca

Be a Light!

Cyndi Aarrestad

In cart Not available Out of stock

Simple, acoustic choruses in an inspirational/praise/country gospel style.

This recording developed as I noticed a theme of "light" in many of the choruses given to me over the past several years. We are instructed in the Word to be light and salt in the earth and to bear fruit for the Kingdom, so I pray that in some small way these songs will be a reminder of that commission. As we all reflect the light of Christ to those around us, we cannot help but make an impact, so let's all SHINE wherever God has placed us. Again, I want to thank my Lord Jesus for His gift of song and for enabling me to share what I have been blessed to receive. Dennis and our children share so much in this ministry and I thank them for their support and love. Thank you to my friends & family who shared their gift and talents. Much appreciation to Marlene Smart for the use of her keyboard. My prayer is that your day will brighten as you listen and sing along, letting the SON shine in and through you!
