“The Rock of Our Redeemer“, another recent conference talk about peace, was beautiful and comforting. “Through The Prince of Peace” in Volume One, “So Will I Comfort You“, compliments this talk so perfectly.

My heart is rejoicing this morning, because our youngest son is returning this Friday from his mission to Hong Kong. What a happy reunion it will be! It makes me think about the wonderful reunion we will have, when if we repent and live righteously, we return into our Heavenly Father’s arms. Also, how grateful we should all be for our Savior’s resurrection, which makes it possible for all of us to live again after death. What glorious reunions we will have with those of our loved ones, who have passed on to the other side! One morning a few years ago, I awakened early on a spring morning, hearing the birds singing their little hearts out, just outside my bedroom window. The melody and lyrics to a beautiful, new song began streaming into my mind. “Joy Cometh In The Morning” was born that day. It’s an inspired song about the resurrection and will be coming out, as part of Volume Three, “Believe In Christ”, within the next couple of weeks.
Those of you, who are searching for new sacred choir music, will be excited about my next new volume, “Believe In Christ”; which is forthcoming within the next couple of weeks. An album full of exciting new, original SATB and SSA musical gems, some of the songs are suitable for ward choir and sacrament meeting performance, and others will be thrilling numbers, when performed by larger SSAATTBB choirs in Stake Conference and larger settings. All of these pieces have two things in common: They are scripturally and doctrinely correct, and they bear witness of the Savior’s truths. This new upcoming volume differs from the other ones, in that scriptural referencing and vocals will not be present. However, piano recordings of each piece will give everyone a good idea of tempo and interpretation. These sound recordings will be attached to each song purchased, for the price of the sheet music alone. Then, hopefully, people will be honest, by purchasing additional .50 copy licenses for the number of copies they need for choir performance.
Today is Christmas Eve. I send loving wishes to everyone all around the world and say, ”I know that our Lord and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, is the Savior of the world! What a miraculous thing it is to have the blessing of sharing my music and knowing how far it is reaching. Our wonderful son, Jacob, is serving a mission in Hong Kong and only has 4 short months left, before returning home. It will be so good to have him home again, and it will be exciting to have him sing and record more of my songs, because he has such a great voice. He recorded Living Waters, (Vol. One, So Will I Comfort You), when he was just 16. When I am missing him, I listen to this recording, and it brings me comfort.
It’s hard to believe that today is December 7th! Christmas will be here, before we know it. Don’t you just love the sweet spirit you can feel this time of year, when you take the time to contemplate the true meaning of this celebration; the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? I bear witness that I know He came to earth as a babe in a humble manger and that He atoned for our sins and gave His life freely, in order to take up His body again ~ as the first fruits of the resurrection. Where is your heart this Christmas season? Is Jesus Christ at the center of your life and thoughts? What were you doing that first Christmas morn? What are you doing on this Christmas morn? Take a little time to listen to “Come Worship The Living Lord“, “Christmas Alleluia“, “Blessed Am I“, “Away In A Manger“, “Joy To The World“, and “Angels We Have Heard On High” and my other Christmas Arrangements. They will help get you into the true spirit of Christmas.
