MY TESTIMONY

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

I want everyone to know that I have a firm testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ! I know our Heavenly Father lives and that He is a kind, gentle, merciful God, who cares about every single one of us. I know that He is a God of miracles, and that there is nothing in our lives too insignificant to pray to Him about, because each and every one of us is His child. I also know that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ is the literal Son of God and that He lives and loves us!  He suffered not only for all of our sins, if we will repent, but He already bore all of our burdens, sorrows, weaknesses, and disappointments. Through His Atonement and our repentance and humility, our burdens can be made lighter, we can know and feel true joy and peace, even in this wicked world; and after this life, through enduring to the end, we can return back to the presence of our Father in Heaven.

 1childofGod says:  Hi, I read the comments on the Hymn Be Still My Soul, and that too is the song I turn to for comfort and peace. Where Can I Turn for Peace is another one that Helps me through depression or despair! And the song More Holiness Give Me is the hymn that helps me be more prayerful. I would love to hear arrangements on these songs…. It is a beautiful website and the music is very inspiring. (A new arrangement of More Holiness Give Me has been added, since this comment)

Richard says:  Sharon . . . so good to “discover” your website. My latest favorite hymn is CALLED TO SERVE. I can imagine a group of missionaries singing this song, accompanied by a small group of “Tubas” to add emphasis. I still get choked up thinking of this song as we were putting “our missionary” in the MTC…Thanks for asking. . .

I MUST GIVE CREDIT, WHERE CREDIT IS DUE!

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

I’m truly  indebted to Joe Billman, the person who developed and designed, and who manages this amazing website.  He also created the Scripture Mastery Widget, which you can download for free and put on your own website. What a great way to memorize and internalize these important scriptures.

Why the title, “Songs of Holiness”?

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

Because the gospel concepts in each song within these seven volumes are fully referenced to the holy scriptures. There is no better way to become holier ~ than to know and live the word of God, as given in His holy scriptures.

Safe At Home

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Every family member should be “safe at home” ~ safe from  destructive criticism, safe from unrighteous judgement, safe from verbal and physical abuse, safe from predators, safe from evil influences; and the list could go on and on. We need to have holier homes, where our Heavenly Father’s Spirit can dwell freely. To do this, we must fortify our homes and block the worldly, ugly things from entering in, so that when each family member steps across the threshold, they feel a protective shield enveloping them and pure, unconditional love encircling them. Volume Two of The Songs of Holiness Series is now in the process of being recorded, and the scriptural referencing completed. Its main theme centers around home and in going back to our Heavenly Home. Listen to “I Pray For A Home” in Volume One and also the Choir Arrangement Album. Have you listened, yet, to “Nowhere Else On Earth” in the Primary and Children’s album?

Geneology Miracles

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Please share your genealogy miracles, because miracles are happening! THIS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT WORK! We have an Aunt, who worked in the extraction program for many years and who shared the following story about a sister, with whom she worked.

This sister had been experiencing a loss of vision and went to see her eye doctor. He announced that she was going blind, and that there was nothing they could do to reverse her situation. At the same time, she had been called to be an extraction worker. She prayed and exercised her faith ~ that if the Lord wanted her to do this work, He would help her to see clearly enough to do it. She not only was able to see clearly enough, but her vision actually improved, as she faithfully fulfilled her calling for many, many years.

Women of Strength

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Women of strength, women of righteousness, women of courage, women of charity, true women of Zion; that’s what the Lord needs in these latter days!  What specific things do you do each day, that help you meet the challenges of this hectic, competative world; where  evil  stares you boldly in the face at every turn?  How do you build your self esteem and remember your true self worth?  How often do you have to stop and remind yourself that you, indeed, are a beloved and cherished daughter of your Heavenly Father, who loves you? Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Stephanie  singing, “Daughters of God Above”,  in the YW and YM  and the Relief Sociey Albums.  It’s a beautiful voice singing us a reminder of these truths.

Safeguard The Little Children

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

I have such a tender spot in my heart for our Heavenly Father’s little ones. What can we do to protect and shield them from the evil swirling all around them in this wicked world? How can we guide them to the beautiful, tender, heavenly things? Be sure to listen to Laura’s crystal-clear, soprano voice singing, “Jesus Loves The Precious Little Children”,  in the Primary and Children’s album.  I believe that it will warm your heart.

Are Angels Among Us?

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Yes! I truly believe that they are! Share your experiences. Listen to the extraordinary song, “Angels”,  in the Relief Society Music album.

TEMPLE BLESSINGS

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

I have a very strong testimony, regarding the blessings which come into our lives, from attending the Lord’s temples.  I also possess a firm conviction that answers to prayers and miracles are sent directly from Heaven, when names are placed, (with faith), upon the temple prayer rolls. In essence, the temples are like a part of Heaven here amidst us, upon this darkened earth. We have experienced many miracles in our family, from faithfully attending the temple and from family members’  names being on the prayer rolls of the temple.

Listen to my latest song, “Temple Blessings”,  found in my FREE Music album, & the Relief Society album, (for a limited time, only), because this song will be in Volume Two of The Songs of Holiness Series. 

 *(I was inspired to add a new verse and a bridge to the original version. Hopefully, it will be on the website by this weekend,  Aug. 9th. Those of you, who have already downloaded the sheet music, may have wondered why the recording differs from the written music. Well, this is the reason.)
