Little-known fact: Another Journal Entry featured an exclusive bonus disc known as Heart of the Artist when pre-ordered or purchased at Family Christian Stores. The disc case clearly shows a Family sticker on the bottom and “2 DISCS” printed on the top left. This rare disc includes close to 17 minutes of behind-the-scenes like studio memories, stories behind the songs and life on the road.

In late 2009, the Deep Forgiveness devotional series was scheduled to launch with “award-winning artists from the major labels, as well as outstanding independent talents.” One of these artists was BarlowGirl. In the Deep trailer, there is stock footage of BarlowGirl in concert, followed by Alyssa Barlow wearing a purple coat and purity ring walking on the street alone. In the latter clip, her two sisters are nowhere in sight while she appears to be mouthing some words from “Sweet Revenge”: “’till you feel this pain too.” In the clip above, I preserve the original MPEG-4 video file while adding the “Sweet Revenge” audio. (If Theora is selected, it is re-encoded.)
Raze was a CCM pop group based in Tulsa, Oklahoma founded by Ja’Marc Davis, a former dancer for CCM star Carman. Other Raze members included Donnie Lewis, J.D. Webb, and Mizzie Logan, though Webb was replaced by Todd Hanebrink in 2000. The group had at least two No. 1 Christian radio singles, but it all came to an abrupt end on March 1, 2001, when Davis was arrested for child molestation. The remainder of Raze only did a few more concerts before calling it quits. Continue reading
One of the purity ministries that BarlowGirl partnered with back in 2008 was Dannah Gresh’s Secret Keeper Girl. The ministry began in 2002, when Gresh published Secret Keeper: The Delicate Power of Modesty, a devotional book about modesty and purity. Secret Keeper Girl later grew into an international phenomenon: the series sold over 1.5 million books, and over 280,000 girls attended live shows.

Upon watching an atheist channel, I heard of the Christian film “Second Glance”, which featured a promotional trailer for the 1998 Christian film “Pamela’s Prayer”. I watched the movie with an open mind because it seemed like it had the kind of doctrine that BarlowGirl taught… well, at least before the three sisters’ pattern of compromise unmasked in recent years. With that in mind, here is my quick review of what this movie has to offer. Continue reading

I just came across this snippet and thought of sharing it on the website.
Fervent Records’ rock trio BarlowGirl and the Air 1 radio network have announced the winner of the contest that gave listeners the chance to win a trip for 4 to Chicago to site see and go Christmas shopping on the famous Michigan Avenue with BarlowGirl.
The winner and family’s trip also included some highlight experiences including visiting the Water Tower Place, seeing the city’s beautiful evening lights from the John Hancock Observatory, enjoying Chicago-style pizza, and sitting front row at BarlowGirl’s Apple Store performance.
The three-piece band played a special acoustic set at the Michigan Avenue Apple Store on Saturday, December 12 to kick off the Christmas season. BarlowGirl will be booking similar shows throughout 2010 allowing the band to share the stories behind their songs as well as engage with the audience through a Question and Answer session.
Of all the activities that BarlowGirl could do, the three sisters opt to partake in shopping for the pagan Christmas holiday! Being an Air 1 contest, it was only available in the United States. International fans need not apply. Adding insult to injury, Lauren Barlow does not care if those who don’t “speak American” wish to have her book Inspired by Tozer translated to their native language. Barlow would rather watch and praise a Lady Gaga concert!

The three Barlow sisters partook in the “Funky Jesus Music” video shooting by tobyMac. They appear during a few moments (0:10, 0:16, 0:42, 0:48, 0:56, 1:11 and 1:43) in order to dance to this song set to a worldly rhythm. Where is the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:7) in these mademoiselles, in addition to all others who dance in a freaky manner in this video?
