Happy 2014! As we begin our 11th year here at Homecoming Magazine, we look forward to what God will do this year, and we’re so glad you are on the journey with us. May He put a new song in our hearts and yours as we all continue to seek Him in the days and months to come.

And speaking of songs, this is a good one for the new year..."It Is Well With My Soul." Here's an amazing performance of this beautiful song by Natalie Grant, singing her heart out on the Women of Homecoming, Part Two DVD...watch and be blessed!
