LISTEN WORLD!

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

A terrible tragedy occured here in Utah, where an innocent little boy was tortured, killed, and his little body desecrated by his stepfather and mother. Every decent person has been affected and appalled that such a crime could ever take place!  We all pray for comfort and understanding. The world needs to listen to the words of this beautiful song, “Jesus Loves The Precious Little Children.” Let us all protect and watch over the Lord’s little ones.

PROPHET OF GOD

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Thomas S. Monson is a true Prophet of God. Of this, I bear my witness. Read his “Closing Remarks” in the October General Conference; as found in the 2009 November Ensign issue. (Easily accessible on  lds.org. ) Our only safety in this wicked world is to follow his words.  I hope to write a song about him and before this year is out, put it up on my website, along with my other songs for children in an album entitled, “The Beloved Prophets”. See and hear my other children’s songs; especially this one, which is performed by my daughter, Laura Sue, who has such a refreshing,  lovely voice.

SONGS ABOUT HOME AND FAMILY

Saturday, November 14th, 2009

VOLUME  TWO of  The Songs of Holiness Series, THE HOPE OF HIS GLORY, is about to be put up on my website.  Hurray!!! I am so excited about this, because for a long time, there have not been enough songs about home and family and because the Primary theme and program this year have  been centered around the family.

Each song has mainly to do with these themes and with women’s roles, the importance of little children, motherhood, the blessings of the Priesthood and the temples and how they bless our families, and returning to our Heavenly Home: I Pray For A Home, Jesus Loves The Precious Little Children, Daughters of God Above, Music Sweeter (Than We’ve Ever Heard), Home Again, This Mother’s Prayer, While I May, Forever With My Family, Nowhere Else On Earth, Please Bless The Children, Priesthood Power, Of Such Precious Worth, Because of The Love, Young Women’s Mission, and Blessed Am I.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Friday, November 13th, 2009

How grateful we should be, every day of our lives, for all of the tender mercies and blessings our kind Heavenly Father sends down to us. Feeling overwhelmed with gratitude, I wrote a new song the other day, entitled: “Thanks Giving“. It’s my FREE GIFT to you. Also, if you’ve always loved the little primary song, “I Have A Little Gospel Light“, and haven’t been able to find it anywhere, here is another FREE GIFT for you: a delightful, new arrangement to teach your little children.

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.

Primary Song Leaders

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

One of my favorite callings has always been Primary Song Leader, because I love children, and I love the beautiful songs in the Primary Songbook. I’ve learned through the years that although it’s important to help the children have fun, it’s even more important to help them feel the Lord’s Spirit. Through heartfelt prayer, you can be guided and directed to know the very ideas, methods, and words to use to touch the children’s hearts. I still remember where I was sitting, the method that was used, the sound of her voice, and the feelings I felt on that day so long ago, when the  Primary song Leader in my ward taught us the song, “My Heavenly Father Loves Me.” I’ll never forget it. You can have such a powerful impact for good upon the children to whom you teach these inspired primary songs.
