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.

CHRISTMAS ARRANGEMENTS

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Can you believe that it’s already November and that Christmas Programs are just a month away? New Christmas Arrangements are always so refreshing. Check out my Christmas and Easter Arrangements Album for eight lovely arrangements, as well as a new SATB CHOIR  ARRANGEMENT for “Joy To The World“, an inspirational, new  Christmas song for ward choirs, (entitled, “One Star)”,  and a delightful new children’s Christmas song, “One Bright Star”,  found in my Primary and Children’s album, as well as in the Christmas and Easter Album.  In Mountain Green, Utah, our large, talented ward choir performed my arrangement of  “Silent Night“, with a guest flutist, and it was absolutely beautiful!  “Away In A Manger” is always a joy to sing and listen to, but this is an especially nice arrangement.   For a wonderful new SATB CHOIR ARRANGEMENT, listen to “Come And Worship The Living Lord!”, and hear my daughters singing the delightful “Christmas Alleluia”, which has been performed countless times for many Christmases, as well as the tender, “Blessed Am I” (Mary’s Song), which whether sung as a solo or women’s choir, has softened and touched every heart each time it has been performed.

Easter Blessings

Friday, April 10th, 2009

Happy Easter! I am grateful for my blessings! To name just a few: a loving family, the miracle of this website, a beautiful, new little granddaughter, a son, who had cancer and is well now and serving on a mission in Hong Kong, knowing that I’ll see my loved ones again who have passed away, and especially the Atonement of Jesus Christ and His and my Heavenly Father’s love and mercy for me. What specific blessings and miracles are you thankful for in your lives during this Easter season, 2009? Even though these are difficult times, there is always so much to be thankful for ~ and remembering to count these blessings and to thank the Lord for them fills us with a positive outlook and happy feelings of hope and faith.
