About the song "Life"
The song, "Life," written by Debra Shepherd and recorded by The Shepherds is a song that reaches out to the hurting, discouraged, and the hopeless person who needs reminding, as we all do from time to time, that though "life" has it's ups and downs, both good and bad, God has promised to never leave us or forsake us. We can find sufficient grace in any and every situation as we put our hope in a faithful God. The very first lines of this song relate in a spiritual, yet natural sense to those affected by the recent hurricanes, as it says, "Sometimes a breeze, sometimes a gale, sometimes the wind's knocked out of my sail."
The name The Shepherds has become synonymous with Gospel Music. In the late 80’s the group was formed out of Sandersville, GA and has turned into a National Ministry in Gospel Music.

The new album features a variety of styles of Christian Music that seems to connect with diverse audiences.
