Temple Builders

So... What you probably don't know is that I lead an exercise group called Temple Builders
on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8:15-9:00 - yes, in the morning - up at church in the fellowship hall.

This class is open to anyone that feels they should move their body.  Seriously, that's my class goal.

(If you'd like more info on that, hit the email button.)

If you knew me, I mean...  really knew me, you would know how hilarious and improbable it is that I lead this class.  Here is my secret:  If I lead the class, I have to be there.  No excuses... at all!

Let's just say my yearbook quote was not "Most likely to lead exercise..."  I'm actually quite skilled at sitting.

And do you know what else?  There are 15 members in the class!  Fifteen people subject themselves to my attempts to lead them into exercise utopia!  It's shocking!

All of this is to tell you that I'm searching for new music.  My 3 favorite playlists of Christian music are getting a bit stale and I need something fresh with which to pummel my class and incessantly hum around the house.

Here's what I found:

                          "Oh How I Need You" by All Sons and Daughters
This song has a fresh banjo sound that's quite jolly juxtapositioned with a killer lyric.  You'll like it.  Plenty of quirky video...

                            "Called Me Higher" also by All Sons and Daughters
This song gets my vote for the best lyric ever.  Be challenged to feel like you should get off your duff and do something.

And if you need motivation to dance your way through your day:
                                   "Dance" by Jesus Culture and Kim Walker.
Five times through this song will blast that body fat down a percentage!

So...  I'm still looking for new songs...  3 songs a playlist does not make.  My classes are 45 minutes long, plus chat time and perhaps a cup of coffee (sans sugar, of course.)

I'm especially skilled at sitting combined with fellowship...

What are your favorites?  Any new songs in your life?  Some old ones?  Maybe I need to listen to some old tunes with fresh ears...

Any suggestions?

I thank you so very much!
