The process to create this song involved a lot of scripture study and meditation. As a family, my daughter, my son and I sat down, read Ephesians 6:10 through 20 and picked it apart verse by verse. We thought about what each verse was trying to convey and shared what it meant to each us individually. We all contributed to writing the song. It was a group effort. God lead us to include Spanish in the song so that it could add to it's versatility and represent diversity. The words "Armadura de Dios" stands for God's Armor. Once completed, the song immediately became a source of inspiration to my family and everyone that we shared it with. It encourages us to do right by putting God first and letting his spirit lead us. It fits into our cannon of work because it is a reflection of who we are and what we stand for as Ambassadors of God. Our mission is to use the youth to save the youth but this song is unique because it applies to everyone because no matter your age or race, God's armor will always protect you. Moreover, it stands as a reminder that regardless of how the world or outside influences may try to change us, the armor of God keeps us grounded.

The song opens up with a quote from Ephesians Chapter 6. It sets the tone by explaining how putting on the whole armor of God will enable you to be fearless and the only weapon that you will need to fight your battles is the sword of spirit which is the word of God. As the song progresses, we reference several important things in relation to the scripture such as prayer and supplication, strength and dedication, and having faith. These are all things that are essential to be able to stand against the wiles of the enemy.This song was inspired by trials that we experience on a day to day basis. The armor of God is our protection, our source and our strength. It represents being strong enough to stand when the temptations of the devil may come our way.
