Written by Grant, her husband Bernie Herms, and songwriter Paul Duncan, “No Stranger” explores the intimacy of a God who identifies with the human experience. “You are no stranger to the scar / So You can have my wounded heart / You weren’t protected from the pain / So You can hold me when I break,” Grant sings, backed by the lush strings that define her latest project.
“In the last few years, through deep valleys and victories, my awareness of God’s presence in my life has awakened like never before. It’s not like He became more available, I just became more aware, and that has changed everything,” Grant shares of the personal significance behind “No Stranger.” “The King of the world, the Author of time and space, makes Himself personally known to me. This everlasting God, the Alpha and the Omega, He is no stranger. He is friend.”
With strings recorded live at London’s famed Air Studios, No Stranger also features previously released tracks previewing the album, including the stirring “Face To Face,” Grant’s powerful version of Casting Crowns’ classic hit “Praise You In This Storm,” her recent collaboration with Steven Malcolm “Even Louder” and her new worship anthem, “My Weapon.”
In addition to introducing new music, Grant recently debuted the “Dare To Be” podcast with her longtime friend, author and speaker Charlotte Gambill, bringing their popular “Dare To Be” women’s events to life in a fresh format. The podcast is in partnership with AccessMore, an all-new online network for faith-based podcasts from Christian leaders like Christine Caine, Levi Lusko and others that launched in May from K-LOVE/Air1 parent company Educational Media Foundation (EMF). The “Dare To Be” podcast’s premier episode became AccessMore’s most listened to episode of the platform’s launch. Fans can subscribe to the “Dare To Be” podcast at www.daretobe.com.
