PRE-LAUNCH DETAILS
PRE-LAUNCH DETAILS

Well, here it is -- and I'm still nervous, but with growing excitement.

Our goal is to share the music with 1,000 new people this week, and you can help us. 

Every day for six days, we'll spotlight a song and offer a free download of that song. And every day we'll ask you to do something to share the music with others. Two of the songs will be new ones. Please allow 48 hours to receive your music. The default will be an mp3, but if you want the sheet music...

OUR SOCIAL MEDIA LAUNCH -- & 3 REASONS WHY I'M NERVOUS ABOUT IT
OUR SOCIAL MEDIA LAUNCH -- & 3 REASONS WHY I'M NERVOUS ABOUT IT

Well, here I am doing something I never thought I’d do: I’m launching a social media campaign around my music -- coming on Tuesday, November 1st. And I’m really nervous about it! Why? 

Well, when I started writing songs for my family and friends several years ago, I never imagined that anyone else would ever hear them. And the first time I posted a song on YouTube, I sent it out to a total of seven people – my husband, our five children, and my mom. Haha – THAT was brave! And now, about 1.5 million views later...

NEW SONGS FOR CHILDREN
NEW SONGS FOR CHILDREN

I'm really excited about this project. I'm working on a series of new songs for children - more songs like "The Miracle." The first ones will be available by the end of October:

"CHOOSE HIM AGAIN" and "THAT'S FAITH"

Sometimes I feel like we've underestimated our kids a little bit. I've done it myself. By trying to write songs that are super easy and simple, we've missed teaching them

SHARING
SHARING "THE MIRACLE"

I loved this blog post on Branches 'n Twigs last week about The Miracle:  

"...then children started singing a song I wasn't familiar with. The words were beautiful but the feeling that flooded the chapel and my body when they sang the chorus was indescribable! It's that feeling you get when you hear truth."

IT NEVER HURTS TO BE NICE
IT NEVER HURTS TO BE NICE
Today would have been my mom’s 85th birthday. I thought about her all day. She died almost exactly six months ago – on Easter Sunday.
 

On the back of her funeral program, there was a saying – one of my mom’s favorites: “It never hurts to be nice.” Six words that sum up a whole life...

THE MISSING CHRIST CHILD
THE MISSING CHRIST CHILD

I love this story, sent to me from one of my readers, about how she learned to make more room for the Savior during the Christmas season. Sally's story began with something lost, but what she found instead would last forever. My story begins years ago when I was back­pack­ing through Israel and bought a beau­ti­ful hand-carved nativ­ity set from olive wood.

FROSTY THE OH-MAN
FROSTY THE OH-MAN

I've been so busy doing music stuff. So today it was fun to focus on something else for a change.  

It took me all of about 20 minutes to make this guy. Easiest. Craft. Ever. I asked my kids to name him, and their suggestions made me laugh.

THE STAR STILL SHINES
THE STAR STILL SHINES

I was getting ready to release “The Star Still Shines” yesterday – more than two weeks later than I had planned – and the coverage of the shooting in California came on the TV. I paused. Maybe this wasn’t a good time. Maybe I should wait. 

It didn’t feel like a Christmasy day at all.

STILL TRYING
STILL TRYING

All I can say is I'm still trying. After a freak accident, a sick singer, 2 failed recording attempts, and several sleepless nights, I'm still working to get "The Star Still Shines" out there. I'm not a person who thinks everything happens for a reason, or that all opposition comes from the devil. But I'm beginning to wonder what's going on.

A MILLION VIEWS
A MILLION VIEWS

I’ve been watching my YouTube channel lately because I’ve been getting awfully close to 1,000,000 total views. I thought it would happen some time in November or December, and I was planning a blog post to offer free downloads on the day I actually reached a million. But last week (October 19th), I checked to see the progress, and WHOOPS!
