Mandisa Shines in Out of the Dark

MANDISA is back with a NEW CD “OUT OF THE DARK”.

Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. 

Faith is an amazing thing.  Mandisa's faith was tested in the loss of her friend. We see so many advances made in breast cancer research that we often forget this dreaded disease continues to claim lives every single day.  A few years ago, I met a dynamic breast cancer survivor at a blogger conference.  She was the youngest person I'd ever met with the disease. She got breast cancer in her 20s and her cancer returned in her 30s.  


She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world.  I can imagine the pain losing her friend caused.   Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her.

This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called 'Out Of The Dark' because that is exactly where God lifted her out of!

You can watch her talk openly about this on Good Morning America last week here: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/mandisa-opens-overcoming-depression-47020463

The 15 track CD features guest appearances by Kirk Franklin, TobyMac, Britt Nicole and Jeremy Camp, but Mandisa clearly shines.  What You're Worth is one of my favorite tracks.  An empowering message with a catchy pop undertone. Another fave is the tune Good News. This song is evident Mandisa was breaking through her depression.  I find myself singing it.  Hey, it's a catchy tune.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
