Artists Amy Grant and Ellie Holcomb Join ‘The Faithful Project’ and Champion God’s Faithfulness
By Movieguide® Staff
Award-winning Christian artists like Amy Grant and Ellie Holcomb recently joined “The Faithful Project.”
The project seeks to honor the stories of faithful women in the Bible through song and storytelling.
Compassion International’s David C Cook and Integrity Music collaborated and planned to release a book, album and a tour of live events. Grant, Ann Voskamp, Holcomb, Lisa Harper, Christy Nockels, and others are joining to bring the project to fruition.
The book, which is titled “Faithful,” seeks to walk readers through the stories in the Bible where God used women to accomplish His purpose.
“I think every different perspective in a story adds to the whole picture. Whether it’s a minority, a disenfranchised group, a silent group, we need all the voices to speak,” Grant told The Christian Post. “That was one theme that we kept coming back to during our gatherings. We weren’t trying to elevate women at the expense of anybody else but with the message, ‘We are one,’ and ‘We are one’ includes everybody.”
The book notes prominent biblical figures such as Ruth, Esther, Naomi, Jehosheba, Anna, Rahab, Leah, Hannah, and Mary Magdalene.
Co-author Chou Simons added: “I pray these words, these songs, these lessons from women of the Bible serve to bolster our faith as we find God faithful again and again. I’m so honored to be part of a project that ministered to my own heart first.”
The project also features songs, like “Faithful: Go and Speak.”
“Faithful is one of those projects that shaped me. I felt power in coming together with a group of women to tell the stories of a faithful God through the eyes of women throughout scripture,” Holcomb said. “In this project, I experienced sisterhood and the beauty that comes when women simply speak about what they have seen of God. I can’t wait to see how God will use these words and melodies to stir up hope and an invitation to deeper camaraderie and community among women in the church.”
