REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Pizza Ranch's "Living Hope" Music CD [Giveaway CLOSED]

I have never been to a PIZZA RANCH restaurant and, actually, I had never even heard of them until just recently. But, now that I know about them, I am very interested in giving them a try sometime. For one, their food looks so delicious! But, what I really like is their vision and mission. Pizza Ranch's vision and mission is not just to feed hungry people. It is "to glorify God by positively impacting the world" and "to give every guest a legendary experience." They have over 190 locations across 13 states: Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado.  (You can read more about them on their blog, PIZZA RANCH SERVES.)

On June 2, 2015, Pizza Ranch released a music CD called LIVING HOPE which contains 12 songs from many of their favorite Christian artists.  Most of the songs are brand-new and written exclusively for this CD around the theme of HOPE.  Adrie Groeneweg, the President and CEO of Pizza Ranch, says, "Although Pizza Ranch is not in the music business, many things have been happening, conversations have been taking place and doors have been opening for this album.  Through these events, I believe it was obvious that God has been behind this for His specific purpose and putting it on our hearts to collectively create this project."  

Here are just a few of the songs and some of the great lyrics:

"Future" - Francesca Battistelli 
I find peace and I find comfort in the One who knows the way. You have overcome my every struggle, the God who holds my days. 

"Hold Onto Hope" - Ellie Holcomb 
I’m waiting for Your light and truth, send them forth to guide me back to You. Keep reminding me that I don’t have to choose despair, I can place my hope in You. 

"Savior's Arms" - Passion Band and Kristian Stanfill 
Even through the darkest valley, You will light the way again. Surely you will go before me, for your goodness has no end. 

"Overcome the World" - Mark Schultz 
In this life, there’ll be sorrow. Don’t lose sight, He hold holds tomorrow. Oh, behold, His love has overcome the world. 

"A Little Hope" - Bart Millard 
Everybody needs a little hope, you know the kind that turns your grey skies blue, a little something that’ll pull you through. Well, good news, that something’s living right inside of you, yeah hope. 

The CD is available at any Pizza Ranch location for only $5 plus tax, or you can purchase a download on their website through August 31st. 

I received a copy of this CD for review and have really enjoyed listening to it. If you enjoy Contemporary Christian music, I believe you will be pleased with the album. For a closer look, you can watch lyric videos, listen to many of the songs, and watch introductions to some of the songs on the official PIZZA RANCH MUSIC page on You Tube.
