Great to have an audience of interested people who can consider my song selection for a Women’s conference in July, called GROW. Speaker Jenny Salt from Sydney will no doubt have some ‘salty’ words to share, teaching from the book of Numbers to show God’s trustworthiness and to encourage us to count on God, holding on to Him through all of life’s jouney. Themes include: trusting God, His faithfulness, taking Him at his Word, resting in God’s promises which are fulfilled in Jesus, blessings, consequences of sin, God’s holiness.
Here is my initial shortlist of songs, keeping in mind that we are hoping to cover a wide range of ages and denominations, mixing well known and new songs.
When Peace like a River (Hymn, aka It is Well) – connected with I will Rise (Chris Tomlin)
Hymn – Great is Your Faithfulness
My Hope (Nothing will change, if all the plans I make go wrong… by Paul Baloche). We taught this one last year at GROW.
Desert Song (This is my prayer in the desert – quite appropriate for Numbers, by Brooke Fraser)
O the Deep Deep Love of Jesus (Bob Kauflin’s hymn arrangement) – will do as item in 3part harmony, to teach it to the group.
Mighty to Save (Hillsong).
See the Man (Trevor Hodge) – this is a great one for see howing God’s promises are fulfilled in Jesus!
No Other Name (Trevor Hodge)
10 000 reasons (Bless the Lord O my Soul . . . Chris Tomlin)
Blessed be your name (Matt Redman)
If you have any thoughts for other songs that tie into the theme perfectly, please comment below. I hope you can also find a new song or two above!
Love the list. The conference sounds like fun. Wish I could be there!
Thanks! Do you have a good women’s conference to go where you live?

Women of Faith is the one our church attends. I’m not big on gaggles of women (thousands) all crammed into one building. I usually stay home!
Ours is 500-600…which is less scary for most people. 🙂
I could handle that many. 🙂
Any song from the Community of Taizé. If you don’t know their music, you can find it on their website, taize.fr. Words for each chant in many languages.
Taize is an ecumenical community, unique in the world. I think you would find their mission and worldview very compatible.
