Every Falling Tear- A Giveaway!!!

I am SO excited about today!!!

Matt Hammitt, lead singer of Sanctus Real, is releasing his solo album, Every Falling Tear on Tuesday, September 13.

Matt and his wife Sarah have a baby boy named Bowen. Bowen was born with a very broken but very special heart.

Bowen has faced many struggles in his short life. So far, God's answer to his parents prayers has been a resounding "I'm not done yet." I'm so happy to tell you that Bowen is thriving, growing, and doing well.

Matt's album was written as a way to honor Bowen as well as a way to record what God has taught his family through the struggles with Bowen's CHD.

Matt and Sarah have also started an amazing foundation called Whole Hearts Foundation. This foundation has been established to help families, like ours, who have been affected by Congenital Heart Defects.

Today, I have the privilege of giving three of you a copy of his newest CD, Every Falling Tear.

Not only that, but there are 2 other bloggers who are also hosting this same exact giveaway today. That's right. You have MORE chances to win this CD. Simply click here and here and leave a comment on these blogs for your chance to enter!

To enter my giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment in the comment section of this post- any old comment will do. You will have through this Sunday (9/11) at Midnight to enter.

(If you have trouble commenting on this blog, feel free to leave a comment on my Real Life of a Redhead facebook page under the post "Every Falling Tear Giveaway."

Matt's marketing agent sent me a copy of the CD, and I can tell you first hand, this is ONE AMAZING CD. You will be touched by the lyrics.

Now,

I have been following Bowen's Heart since before he was born b/c I heard it on KLove. From his page I linked to another heart famiy (not sure who it was), but from their page I found yours. I began reading about sweet Joshua, and then found Ewan and Cohen's page as well. Your blog has given me much to think about and I love to read it everyday. I would love a chance to win Matt Hammit's new CD!

I don't have a chd baby, but a CDH baby that was born 6 days after Bowen. Have followed their story from the beginning:)

Church Family said...

I have been following your story as well as Bowen's story. Thanks to both families for sharing your faith through your struggles.

Mandie Hamrick said...

I don't have a CHD baby but I've following Bowen's story since he was born. I gotta say, I'm probably the least deserving person to get the CD but because of blog like yours and Bowen's I see life, my kids, and health in a whole new way. I'd understand if I wasn't chosen, but it'd be awesome if I was. :)

Matt's CD had a few songs released earlier, and they literally were on repeat for days while we were with our little one in the hospital having his surgery a few weeks ago . . . I would love to hear the rest - he somehow put into words (beautiful words and music) exactly how I was feeling!

Heather and Adam said...

Love the song All of Me like Kathy said it touches a special place in my heart :)

Again, thanks for sharing yesterday...and for sharing Matt's song. Beautiful.

I'm not a CHD parent, but I am a 24yr old CHDer (Tricuspid Atresia, HRHS...21yrs Post Fontan). I love Matt's song "All of Me"! The song is SO beautiful and SO touching and though I'm not a CHD parent, but hits home because I know my parents gave "all of themselves and their love" to me and still do. <3
