I’m no Christian but even when I was, I never really liked gospel music but I do have a few songs that I like for sentimental reasons. While I I’m not into gospel, I do happen to love gospel-house music & have tons of it in my music library.

I guess if you put anything to a good house beat it’s a win in my book.  One of my favorite gospel-house songs is “Be Thankful” by Jamie Lewis featuring Michelle Weeks. This is actually one of my favorite songs to work to on the elliptical machine. It get’s me pumping.

Even though it opens up super churchy, I feel the power of Michelle’s voices and I love it for that.

And these days, I honestly have so many things to be thankful for! Feels good being able to say that!


“Let us come before him with thanks giving and extol him with music & song.

Well, I know some of you must be saying. What do I have to be thankful for? I can’t pay my bills. My marriage is falling apart, my health is failing, and I just can’t find a job.

Well, 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says ‘give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.’

So. Come on, life your hands and give him praise. Say thank you, thank you father…”
