My first post

The idea came to me the other day that I should start a blog about my music writing. I have had so many incredible experiences that have strengthened my testimony, and then these experiences are forgotten as life gets busy and I get busy doing other things. I wish I would have started this a long time ago.

So, better late than never.

Here goes....

I just finished writing I Will Stand as a Witness for the Young Women in our ward. They will be singing it at their New Beginnings. It was a challenge to fit all of the values into one song, but when it was done, I sure felt good about it. I really like the fact that when I start writing a song, I usually find myself in my scriptures, and in frequent prayer, pleading for the right words to come. Then, they always do. Thats the miracle....they ALWAYS do. I feel so blessed as I receive the inspiration for these songs.
I can't wait to hear the Young Women sing it. I will let you know how it goes.

I don't have anything currently in the works, but I have had an idea floating through my head and a little melody. So, in the next few days, when I find time, I will start writing it. Thats always the tricky part...finding the time. My kids really keep me on my toes, and I love it. I am also trying to get more recordings on my site. I have had many many people tell me that it would be a lot easier for them if they could just hear the songs. So, with my very amateur recording capabilities, I am making recordings (they are not wonderful by any means) that will hopefully let you decide if you like it or not.

Well, I am glad you visited this blog. Now, hopefully I will keep up on it. As always, I love to hear from anyone and everyone about experiences they may have had with my music. Leave a comment or send me an email. I will do my best to respond.
