Songs and Testimonials
"The first time we heard the song, I found myself listening intently for the connections to our lives, and there were many. The song really does highlight who we are, where we’ve been, and where we are now. It also is a nice reminder of our respect and love for one another. I also really love how the chorus taps into the things we continue to enjoy right now – and the things we still look forward to. The song was easy to listen to, and the chorus was fun and easy to remember; we found ourselves signing along! I’d say that’s a successful song! Justin and I are thrilled with 'He’s my Man.' "
