He Comes Again

So the cantata is going to be titled, "He Comes Again."  I just finished writing this song. It will be sung at the end of the cantata. I am really happy with how it turned out. I had a really incredible experience while trying to write it. I knew what I wanted the song to be about, but I was having a really hard time getting it started. I couldn't decide how I wanted to start it. Well, my husband and I had a date to the temple planned, so that whole day, I kept praying that I might be able to receive some inspiration for this song. There is not a better place in the world to think about the Savior, than at the temple. So, we pulled into the temple parking lot, and I just knew that I would be able to figure it out. I got dressed, and made my way up to the chapel. As I sat down in this beautiful room, I looked up and there is a huge picture of the Savior, coming down from heaven with His arms opened wide. I felt the spirit so strongly tell me that this is what the song was to be about. It was to be about our Savior, coming for us, with His arms outstretched wanting us to come to Him. So, I was able to come home, and that very next day, write all of the words to this song. It starts, "He came to us with open arms, surrounding all with love." I think this is one of my favorite songs that I have written. (I think I might say that about a lot of the songs I write though) So, it is on the website.....check it out!
I also have a few more new ones on there, I Seek Him, which is the song that I wrote about what Mary Magdalene might have been feeling. Alleluia is on the site. I also just wrote a fun little song called Our Mission is Possible for our stake young women's camp. Their theme was Mission Possible, so I hope this fits in with what they were wanting.
So, there's quite a few new ones. Check it out!

  2. Just checked out all of your new songs. They are so good. I loved Abby's baptism song. I really wish I was there to sing your songs at church. The cantata is going to be wonderful. I miss you.
