About the song "Enough", SongDoor Int'l Songwriting Contest judges wrote, "Love the moodiness, broodiness of this. The message will hit home for lots of women. The kind of song you can just set on repeat on your iPod and let it run all day. The sadness seeps through every line. Grown up writer, reminds me a little of some of Sarah McLachlan's more somber stuff. Loved it."
