I am so excited! I have finally gotten my website updated enough to add a new song that I just wrote in the last few days. It's a song for the new 2018 Mutual theme, and it's called, "Peace in Me".
I hope it will bring you peace and comfort as the words are wonderful from the Savior and based on the scripture from D&C 19:23 "Learn of me, and listen to my words. Walk in the meekness of my spirit, and you shall have peace."
There's a recording and accompaniment track that can be downloaded from The Light Room, as well as the free sheet music and a video recording available on the website.
I have also added another song called "Love is the Key" It's only been through loving others and trying to feel God's peace that has gotten me through these last few years with my divorce and other many trials. Through them all, I've found that loving others and trusting that God has a plan for me has been key to feeling peace.
Things are going well. I'm finally moved back into a house and am learning new ways to support myself and my kids. I still like to give away my sheet music for free, so I'm coming up with creative ways to make an income and to still enjoy being a songwriter and presenter.
I'm learning so many things right now! - like how to do taxes, deal with health insurance, yard work, and learning how to be single again. It's definitely been a new adventure for sure!
In addition to moving, I got a new calling! I'm the new Young Women's secretary in my ward. I get to work closely with each of the girls and help them with their personal progress. I'm thrilled! I love to help people accomplish their goals, and I'm excited to start mentoring those that would like a little help getting moving on their goals. It's called Music and Mentoring, and if that sounds like something you'd be interested in, please email me, I'd love to work with you!
I'm also singing again. I've wanted to share my personal songs forever - the songs that have inspired hope in me and reminded me of all the things I've learned, like being positive, relying on God's atonement, recognizing blessings through trials, being grateful, and being able to see people the way God sees them. I've written so many songs to help me remember these things and I'm excited to share them with you on a special members-only space on my website called The "Light" Room. Everything in the Light Room is meant to inspire and encourage you. There's a yearly subscription, but it will be so worth it to you as you get to download all of the songs from my CD's, listen to all the demos of my personal songs and enjoy watching personal videos and music videos that I will be adding to the site about the things I'm learning and the stories behind my songs.
I hope you will take advantage of that opportunity.
I'm enjoying this new chapter in my life. It wasn't what I expected, but I appreciate all the support you have given me all these years, and I'm excited to share my songs, stories and music even more with you. If you know of any opportunities that would allow me to share my music more, or to be able to share the experiences I've learned along the way, I am definitely open to those opportunities! I love to talk to people, and I love to share my experiences with others.
I hope that my songs will continue to bless and remind you of God's love. It's through Him we feel ultimate peace and happiness.
Thanks for your support, and enjoy the music!
