Michael Zabrocki writes of "Teach Me to Love": "I don''t often write reviews but Ms. Bailey''s "Teach Me To Love" deserves attention. "Teach Me To Love" takes the listener on a colorful spiritual journey...the songs present deep spiritual truths in a delightful style. When Ms. Bailey sings - the soul of the listener sings along as well. Ms. Bailey''s lyrics become the listener''s prayers. She is a gifted lyricist. The styles range from ballad to soft rock - really, there is something for all tastes. A review of this artist and album could not be complete without mentioning the vocal ability of Ms. Bailey (and the vocal arrangements, harmonies, etc...) - her voice is obviously her primary instrument. Her tone is pure and she exudes a humble confidence that makes the listener feel like she is singing only for them! Nice to see such talent used for the Glory of God! Highly Recommended!"
Nick Alexander from CT writes: "This is a wonderful inspirational album. There are songs on this that bring me into the presence of God. "Simon, Son of John" is . . . a perfect song . . .catchy, reverent, takes a familiar passage in Scripture and illuminates it for us. "Come into His Heart", is congregational-friendly and touching. The title track, "Teach Me to Love", is filled with passion and tenderness. There''s a lot to like in this album, and worthwhile for your quiet times."
