Love Reality

Charmaine | in:ciite

Charmaine grew up
traveling the world with her parents in music ministry. When she was
11, she dedicated her life to Jesus and to being a music evangelist.
As a music hopeful in her teens, she was discovered by David
Smallbone, Rebecca St. James’ father and manager. He invited her to
record a project under his label and tour with St. James. After seven
years, Charmaine knew it was time to step out on her own.

While living in
Nashville, Tenn., and no
t touring, she concentrated on songwriting.
Eventually she was offered a chance to create her own album. The
result is
Love Reality.
“This record reflects all the things I am truly convicted of: love
is the real reality; God is good, and because of that, there is
hope,” Charmaine says.

Charmaine’s clever
and fresh music combines orchestral pop sounds as well as electronic
beats, and showcases a voice that is unmistakably her own.

New ‘AI-Generated Ouija Board’ Aims to Converse with the Dead

People around the world are starting to flock to "grief tech" for answers, much like Saul flocked to the medium of Endor when he wanted answers from the deceased prophet Samuel. But what is grief tech, and is it abominable as the Lord finds the practice of necromancy...

Why Believers Must Develop a Heavenly Mindset

Why Believers Must Develop a Heavenly Mindset

Beloved, as believers in Yeshua, we need to be focused on and living for—the age to come. Our thinking as well as our actions should reflect and demonstrate this. We cannot allow our temporal circumstances to define who we are in God or distract us from having a...

Are You Pentecostal in Practice?

My personal, spiritual journey has all been within the fellowship of just one church family, the Foursquare Church. It is one of several, historic, Pentecostal denominations which grew out of the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles in the early 1900s. As a matter of...

The laying on of hands is an age-old tradition in the church dating as far back as Moses and Joshua. It is a practice you see in the charismatic church quite often today. But deliverance minister Mike Signorelli says there is a proper way for kingdom leaders to handle...
