Cassandra's Review-  If you have an artist or even someone in your life that loves to try new ways to create, the two books above are going to be super.  hey remind me of a toy I had growing up, except you can not redo them.  My older aged kids loved being particular and creating designs but the younger kids just loved the colored background and wanted to play with the scratching aspect so depending on your age level this might be more useful.

Matthew’s heart behind the album:

Matthew wrote his new album All In with the goal of encouraging himself and others to get up off the sidelines of their faith and really live it out – to go all in in your time with God, all in with your family, all in with your community, and all in battling your fears that may hold you back from becoming who God made you to be. Along that same theme, Matthew will be launching a 6-week All in Challenge on his social media starting 9/18, and each week Matthew will be challenging his fans to go all in in a different part of their lives. What does it look like when a heart that knows Jesus takes a step and holds nothing back? How can we go All In in the places that mean the most?

Cassandra's review -  I got this heated feeling like warmth all throughout my soul and then a feeling of pure joy.  I think that this artist has a gift of giving through his voice that makes the listener appreciate and immerse themselves in splendor or worship and is makes great faith based praise music.
