Plumb is back again with another amazing album. "Exhale" is an album born of a sermon at Plumb’s home church, wherein her pastor Pete Wilson expressed the notion that the Church doesn’t exist for itself. Rather, believers come to church to breathe in grace and truth, be changed, and then go out and “exhale” that hope into their surrounding community. This theme is so important to her that she wrote the synopsis for the entire album, in her own handwriting, on the album cover:
"We do not exist for us but to share the grace and love given to us all. We breathe it in, it changes us, and then we breathe it out, we share it. I have now breathed in deeply and it has changed me completely. It has healed my heart, restored my home and made me new. Because of that grace, there is always hope. It’s oxygen. Breathe it in...and then EXHALE."
The tracks on the album convey this message with all that we have come to know of Plumb. From the upbeat title track to beautifully weaved worship anthems to more dance like sounds, this album covers all of what we have loved of her previous albums, although occasionally dialed down in what seems an effort to convey the heart of the song. No matter which type of sound you prefer, each and every song is filled with the essence of grace, what it is for each of us, and the spirit of sharing it with everyone we know. You can feel the power of Plumb's personal journey and where it has brought her to God's total and complete love for her.
Overall, the album is a great followup to her last album, Need You Now, and invites everyone to share in what she has found. It's a worship based album that lends to the core of our faith and what that should mean to each of us. It's a reminder of what Christ has done for us and what we are to do with the gift He has given us, grace. The more you listen to this album, the more you feel the message of exhaling as a part of our existence to share with everyone just how great Christ is to us and what He can be for them as well.
