OLD TESTAMENT SONGS - SNEAK PEEK
OLD TESTAMENT SONGS - SNEAK PEEK

First - our purpose: To provide a fun, memorable way to learn Bible stories and teachings to children and families.

When I set out to write a series of Bible songs, I knew I couldn't do it alone, So I teamed up with my sister, Linda. We started with The Creation and just kept going. It’s been a fun project and I have LOVED doing it with Linda, who is fun and smart and witty and wonderful. And she calls herself my

LYRISISTER. Or my LYRISIS for short. LOL.

I’ll start with the summary - then you can read details below, like the struggles, and the miracles (so far) - if you're interested.

There will be 9, possibly 10 songs. Released between November 10th and the middle of December. All on YouTube. All downloadable. All included in a songbook and CD. All singable at home. Most singable at Church...

STRONG
STRONG

Working on the "Strong" song has been one of the greatest privileges I've had. It wasn't an easy assignment, but I have cherished the opportunity -- especially the opportunity to get to know Sarah Frei, her family, and the group Vocalocity. I will never forget it.

f you’re reading this post, you’ve probably come for one of two reasons: 1) You want to know more about Sarah Frei and the “Strong” song that I wrote for her. Or 2) You want the sheet music to the song. If it’s another reason, comment on this post and I will answer you by emailing you. 

Here’s a little bit of the story behind the song: 

FIRST, ABOUT SARAH.

RECORDING RESTORED
RECORDING RESTORED

We recorded and filmed "Restored" yesterday. And I can't really describe how awesome it was. 

A dozen singers - ages 12 to 55 - singing about their faith in Jesus Christ and His restored gospel. Each one testifying, in their own style, what they know to be true. 

I called on singers of different ages, nationalities and walks of life. I told them to bring their own flare to the song. And they did.

It was incredible. THEY were incredible.

COMING SOON: RESTORED
COMING SOON: RESTORED

I’ve written a song about the restoration.

Ideally, it would have been out before the first of the year. But I don’t write to a schedule. I just write when I get the inspiration. And to be honest, I haven’t had a lot of that lately. ;) 

I had the idea for this song in mid December. I set out to write something that isn't just about the first vision, but the impact of the first vision, and the impact of the restoration. What do we know and what do we have because of it? How are our lives different because of it?

As I've written, I've felt an extra responsibility to make it right, and so I didn't want to rush it. Last year, I wrote, recoded and filmed three songs between Thanksgiving and the New Year. But this year is different. And this song is different.  

Anyway, here’s the good news:

CERTAIN WOMEN - and other songs to come
CERTAIN WOMEN - and other songs to come

Writing songs used to be a hobby for me. But it’s turned into much more than that. In fact, if I let it, it could be a 60-hour-a-week job, and there are days when I wonder, “Why am I doing this?!” But I know why.

NEW SONGS COMING SOON

f you read my last blog post, you'll know we've had our share of challenges lately. 

In the throes of everything else that's going on, I'm trying to write a new series of songs to loosely accompany the 2020 Come Follow Me curriculum for my church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I'm calling the series "Another Testament of Jesus Christ."

So far, these are the 5 songs that will be released before the end of the year:

THANKFUL FOR EVERY BREATH
THANKFUL FOR EVERY BREATH

We take a lot of things for granted. Like breathing. The average person breathes about 20,000 times per day, but they rarely even think about it. Until that ability to breathe is threatened. 

 It’s been a rough month in our family. Two family members have spent a collective 45 days in the hospital -- so far -- and one is fighting an unexpected, uphill battle of his own.

 To begin with, my husband, John, trained this year to ride the Lotoja – a 200 mile bike ride from Logan, Utah to Jackson, Wyoming. He knew it would be a tough ride (60 of the first 100 miles are uphill), but he didn’t know how tough.

 That’s because he didn’t know he was riding it with a collapsed lung...

BEST BIRTHDAY EVER
BEST BIRTHDAY EVER

It was my birthday last week. And suddenly, overnight, I was officially old. But my family gave me an incredible gift. They showed up and said, "We're here all day. What do you want to do?" It was amazing.

A lot has changed since I was born, but there are a few things that haven't changed...

I WILL SHINE
I WILL SHINE

I'm asking this question today: How important are the videos to you?

This is the background that makes me ask the question: I planned to release this song last Spring, and the recording was finished in May...but then my life got in the way.

Writing, arranging, recording and transcribing a song is a huge project by itself. But if I have to do a video, that's an additional huge project. And often, like with I Will Shine, the video delays the release of a song.

So comment below and tell me -- would you rather have more songs and get them earlier? Or would you rather wait for the video? How important are the videos to you and your family?
