Volume Two: The Hope of His Glory

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

I am so excited to finally have volume two, “The Hope of His Glory“, now available. In this volume there are 16 original songs. Please take a minute to sample this volume and let me know what you think. This music has really impacted my life, because with the creation of nearly every song in this volume, I have experienced deep emotion and true inspiration; perhaps because my family is so dear to me. For instance, “Because of  The Love”, was written in one day, after the death of my beloved and saintly father. My brother, Tom, asked me to write and perform a special song for my father’s funeral. After heartfelt prayer and  serious contemplation and reflection, the melody and the words just began to flow out onto the music paper. I definitely felt “guided” to be able to fine-tune this song, tied to such tender emotions and memories. It has never been changed, since the inspiration for it first came. I can’t wait to hear stories from you. If you have any questions or comments regarding my music, please feel free to post them on my blog, and I will respond to them.

I Love The Scriptures!

Friday, October 30th, 2009

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.
