Christmas Post Day 9: Jeremy Camp New Cd Giveaway


Two years since his last release, Jeremy Camp is releasing a new cd. Some of the changes he has experienced since his last cd "really got started in my heart," he said. "I got on my face, and that's where everything starts. You get distracted building your own kingdom."

I love this quote! It really convicted me as I thought about kingdoms I have tried to build-- my family kingdom, my writing kingdom, my speaking kingdom, my homeschooling kingdom. It is true what he says, while your kingdom might be noble and your intentions honorable, in the building you can still get distracted from the One who rules over all kingdoms, past, present and future.

We have loved Jeremy since his first cd was released, and wore it out on a car ride to Florida that summer. Imagine our surprise when we found him walking around at ICRS when we got there! (We were at the International Christian Retail Show so Christian writers and musicians are expected-- we just didn't expect to see him.) He was incognito at that point, as most people didn't even know who he was (yet). Curt saw him and stopped him to tell him how much we loved his cd and we even got our picture made with him. That was a highlight of our trip that we still laugh about! We have bought every single one of his cd's since then and have never been disappointed.

I handed this one directly to Curt when it arrived, as he is our resident music critic and is (to be honest) quite hard on most cd's. So when he came back and told me "That new cd of Jeremy's is really good," I knew we had a winner. He declared "There Will Be A Day" as the quintessential perfect song start to finish and has played it over and over again.

If you are looking for a great gift for a music lover you know, definitely keep this cd in mind. And I am even going to give one away to one lucky winner! Leave a comment and share your favorite Jeremy Camp song to win. I will announce the winner next Wednesday.

What's my favorite Jeremy Camp song? Well, these aren't new ones (they are actually from that first cd), but they stand out as my favorites still:
Stay and Breaking My Fall
Oh, and My Desire. How can you really pick just one??

Want to see a video preview of the cd? Go here!

ETA: Journey To A Gracious Woman won! My son randomly chose the number of her post. Congrats!!

"Lay Down My Pride" is one of my favorites~it's the ringtone I have on my cell phone. My kids ADORE that song!!

Kara said...

There's so much of Jeremy Camp's music to love - it's hard to pick just one. But I do really, really like "Give You Glory" - it's a great worship song. And my husband loves "Give Me Jesus" - it brings him to tears. And if I happen to win the CD, it will be a Christmas present for him! :)

Love his music! Hard to pick a favorite, so I will go according to my mood this week.... "Slow Down Time". That is what I so need right now, just time away alone to spend with my best friend, Jesus!
Love your Christmas post each day and enjoying my ebook again this year.
Merry "CHRIST filled Christmas"

Good morning Marybeth, I'd love to enter your give away. "There Will Be A Day" is one of my favorite songs. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and the quote, they are both very thought provoking and heart piercing. I hope you have a wonderfully blessed day!

I really like "Give You Glory" a lot...I will have to check out the new CD...my husband is like yours, the music critic, and he is always looking for new worship CDs that are awesome!

My son is a huge Jeremy Camp fan and is the one who first told me about him. My favorite song is Empty Me, the words are powerful.

Thanks for the chance to have the new CD. :)

Sitesx6 said...

We love Jeremy at our house too. It is hard to pick just one song, but I'll say Empty Me (and second is I'll take you back.)
Thanks for the chance to win a great CD!

I love Jeremy Camp. I'm like others and have more than one but I really do like Walk By Faith.

Thanks for the chance for the great giveaway.

Have a very Merry Christmas!!

B His Girl said...

I love Jeremy Camp's voice. His song "I Still Believe" is a favorite of mine. Thanks for the review. Merry Christmas!

Beth said...

I just bought it, so you can omit me from the giveaway :-)

We saw him live in concert in Knoxville a few years ago, and he is just as awesome in person as on the CD's. I don't just mean the music, either!!

A favorite? I love most of them and have worn out every CD. Although, I did have "I Surrender to You" as my ringtone for quite some time...

Joy in The Truth (Sharon Sloan) said...

LOVE Jeremy Camp! Thanks so much!

Love his live DVD...the kids and I watch it!

Count me in! Thanks.

I love Jeremy too. Saw him in concert at Carowinds several years ago. he's great!

rural momma said...

I saw Jeremy Camp at Soul Fest in 2006. He was such a blessing, he gave all glory and honor to the Lord.

I think my favorite song is, "Your Right Here"--I'm not sure if that is the name, but it is part of the song. ;0)

Thanks for the contest!! :0)

Paula (SweetPea) said...

How to pick one? My memory is not good at song names so I'll say the one that comes to mind. "There Will Be A Day."

I would love to win the new Jeremy Camp CD!! "I Still Believe" has some good memories for me from my own walk in faith.

Joyful said...

Marybeth, I'd love to be entered in your contest. I have to admit I'm not familiar with a lot of Jeremy Camp's songs - but I know I often hear him sing, "Give me Jesus" on the radio station I listen to in my car. When it comes down to it, He's really all we need.

Blessings,
Joy

I feel so "cliche" picking it but "There will be a day" is seriously ONE of my FAVORITE songs of all time right now (not just Jeremy Camp).. Our 6 1/2 month old son went home to Heaven mid-October and I LOVE the message of that song..

beverlydru said...

I have not heard this CD and would LOVe too!! Thanks for the neat story about Jeremy and about THE KINGDOM that counts.

Wanda said...

Oh Marybeth....I know how you feel....being excited to get another cd by Jeremy Camp. My youngest daughter....IS CRAZY ABOUT HIM!!!! So...talk about wearing out some music. This kid has all of his cd's (not this one) and loves them all.
Favorite: Trust in you

Thanks.....oh....you and your family are just beautiful! Really!

Kim said...

Evidence of His Unreasonable Grace said...

MaryBeth, I have many Camp favorites, but the new one "There Will Be A Day" is his best to date. This CD is what I want for Christmas! Thanks for entering me in your contest!

christinnjon said...

"Give You Glory" is one of my faves! I saw Jeremy Camp when his first album came out at the Cornerstone Festival in IL. It was the first time I heard him sing. After leaving his concert, I mentioned that he should make a worship album - and he did a couple years later! He is just so authentic...makes his worship authentic.

Elizabeth M Thompson said...

Marybeth, thanks for entering me in your giveaway. I hope you'll check out mine, too!

Jenn said...

My mind is blank on song titles and which ones are Jeremy's but I am a HUGE music fan and would love to add a wonderful new CD to my collection. Please include me in the giveaway.

Thanks!

Walk by Faith has to be my all-time favorite, but I also like his version of Enough.

When I think of Jeremy Camp I hear the lyrics, "and the veil was torn so we can have this open door..." from "This Man." I just worship in that! It all rocks!!!

nancy said...

"Empty Me" ...if I had to list a favorite, it would be one at the top of the list. This song takes me to the place of praise where I want to be, more of Him and less of me.

Anonymous said...

We love Jeremy Camp, too. One of my favorite CD's is Carried Me: The Worship Project and I love the song - "Trust in You".

Walk by faith is my favorite song. Two years ago my son was in a dirt bike accident that left him paralyzed. I printed out the lyrics to this song and put in a picture frame along with my son's picture. I believe that one day my son will walk again.

momagain67 said...

My daughter and I love Jeremy Camp! My favorite is "There Will Be a Day" and my daughter's is "I Still Believe".

melodee said...

I love expanding the collection of my Christian music and don't have this Jeremy Camp CD - count me in on the drawing please!

Jeremy Camp songs I like (well, all of them, but here are a few that stand out to me): Enough, Breaking My Fall, This Man, Even When, and, well, I could just list the rest here, also!

Actually, This Man is probably my favorite one that I can think of right now.

Thanks!
