Finding Inspiration Through Music

A couple years ago, a close friend (who really is more like family at this point) lost her mom to ALS.  At some point in her grieving process, I made her a CD of some songs I find to be inspirational and/or uplifting – nothing huge, just something to maybe help her through the difficult moments a little better.

So I now I share with the world a sample from my Inspiration playlist that includes some of the songs I sent to my friend.  (Clearly, some aren’t really appropriate for someone who’s grieving – like T.Swift’s “Shake It Off”.)

But for whatever the reason, if you need a little pick-me-up, check out some of the tracks below.

  • “Stand” – Rascal Flatts
  • “I Will Survive” – Gloria Gaynor
  • “Faith When I Fall” – Kip Moore
