This month, we’ll be celebrating the greatest love story ever told. I know Good Friday is still a week away, but I finished creating the following video a little early and couldn’t wait to share it with you.
For almost eighty years, Disney has been captivating our imaginations with beautifully rendered fairy stories. But as J.R.R. Tolkien explained to C.S. Lewis, the Gospel provides us with an authentic, eye-witness account of a fairy tale that’s true.
The world may not need yet another cover of Frozen’s award-winning “Let it Go,” but it desperately needs the message embedded in this version. Let its truth sink into the depths of your heart and resonate within: Christ Jesus is risen. He is risen indeed!

May we sing your song Let Then Know in our church? We do not have video equipment to play the youtube but I know our congregation would enjoy it.
Jennifer Flanders says
Absolutely, Audrey. I’d be honored! I would only ask that, if you publish my lyrics anywhere, please credit me in the byline and include a link to this post. Thanks!
Simply amazing! You also have such a beautiful voice.. I will listen to this over and over again!
Terry @ A Mom's Many Lessons says

Thank you so much for your blog. Yours is one of the very few I make time to read. I greatly appreciate your stand for The Lord. -Angela (missionary to Russia)
Wow. The Lord had me find this pinned on my homepage by someone I follow on Pinterest. First, I’m so excited to start digging through your blog. I am also super excited about the words you wrote a cover to this song. THIS is the cover the world needs most of all. I love the lyrics and the fact that each line has an address of a verse (or verses) from the Word to support it. What a gift from the Lord. Thank you so much for listening to Him. 🙂
I would love to be able to hear this song that you’ve done. Unfortunately, I receive a message that tells me that this video is blocked in my country due to copyright laws. I’m in the U.S. Any possible way you could load this on a different platform for us to hear?
Looking forward to reading through your blog when more free time comes.

Thank you for all your kind words, Kristen. YouTube told me my video would be blocked in some countries, but I didn’t realize that included parts of the US! Try watching it here: “Let Them Know“
