10+ Gospel Family Albums From The 1970’s

10+ Gospel Family Albums From The 1970’s - Awkward Galleries

You’ve heard the expression “The family that prays together, stays together.” Well, for some families, that’s not enough–they form a band together and professionally release music under a Christian record label. Thanks to our friends at Flashbak, you can check out these forgotten family gospel albums from the 1970’s.

The album covers don’t aim for much creativity. Just a straightforward photo of the family, usually in matching polyester outfits, trying to convey wholesomeness and godliness and looking super awkward while doing it.

Mom Recreates Celebrity Parents’ Photos And It’s Totally Hilarious

Mom Recreates Celebrity Parents’ Photos And It’s Totally Hilarious - Awkward Galleries

Celebrity moms Instagramming their day-to-day parenting triumphs is its own industry, but Australian comedian Celeste Barber prefers a more realistic approach. She’s the creator of an Instagram account that parodies celebrity parenting photos, and she’s amassed over a million followers.

As a mother of two sons under the age of six, and two teenage stepdaughters, Barber is no stranger to the struggles of parenting, and she knows how to find humor in it. “I just wanted to make people laugh,” she said. “I hope mums get a laugh out of my stuff while doing the washing, cooking dinner, helping with homework, satisfying partners and necking a cleanskin.”

(If you’re not familiar with Aussie slang, “necking a cleanskin” means drinking cheap wine straight from the bottle.)
