Extremely grateful for the sriptures, I am especially thankful for the Book of Mormon, because countless times in my life, from reading in this inspired book, I have been comforted, sustained, and strengthened during difficult times. I echo my testimony, along with Elder Holland’s, borne in October General Conference, “The Book of Mormon is true!” I also know, without doubt, that our kind, gracious, loving Heavenly Father is a God of miracles! Another thing I know, is that inspirational sacred music has more ability to uplift and comfort us, when it is referenced to the Lord’s holy scriptures. The Songs of Holiness, Volume One, “So Will I Comfort You“, and Volume Two, “The Hope of His Glory”, are fully referenced to the scriptures, and through studying these scriptural references, hearts have been softened; thus allowing the Spirit of the Lord to penetrate and inspire, guide and direct.

Today we attended the funeral of a young friend and mother of five; just 31 years of age and who passed away from Inflammatory Breast Cancer. I was deeply moved, as her four oldest children, her brothers and sisters, and even her mother gave beautiful tributes to her. And then her strong, supportive husband spoke of her courage, faith, and gratitude and uplifted all of us with his unwavering testimony. Her blogspot is inspirational: amberchase.webly.com. Her mother told how Amber was strengthened by the hymns and comforted by the beauty of music. For the opening song, the congregation sang, “There Is Sunshine In My Soul Today”; which fit Amber’s personality perfectly. I’ve been inspired to do an arrangement of this hymn, because it’s also one of my favorites. Look for it soon in my Free LDS Sheet Music and Free Hymn Arrangements. This evening, in honor of Amber’s children, I recorded an arrangement of “I Have A Little Gospel Light”, which will be in my Primary and Children’s Album.
