Labor Playlist for a Christ-Centered Birth

Labor Playlist for a Christ-Centered Birth

I updated the labor playlist I made when I was pregnant with Max.  No, I'm not pregnant again; I just wanted to update it with some newer songs and some more Christ-Centered songs.  Although my last list contained a lot of Christian songs, I really wanted a list that was full of Christian music that focused on Christ and had an … [Read more...]
