Congratulations to Jan! She commented: "I can totally see using these cute little missionary bears in teaching "I want to be a missionary now" -- even teddy bears can share the gospel! ha!" She is the winner of the missionary teddy bears! If you would like your own bears, they can be purchased at elderteddy.com Thanks for participating! YourLDSMusicStore.com is an awesome site, I know you'll find it useful!
I love music. I love singing it, dancing to it (in my kitchen. alone.), teaching it, and most of all listening to it! There is no better way to change my mood or create a peaceful ambiance in my home than through music. I am SO excited at the launch of a new website called YourLDSMusicStore! It is the go-to place for almost everything in the LDS music genre. You can download single tracks or whole albums, buy CDs, songbooks for instruments or choirs - everything! The site is way easy to navigate, and there is a treasure trove of stuff to find there! Here are a few things that have been on my MP3 player lately that you can find there!
In our house, Christmas starts the day after Halloween, with the songs of the holidays wafting through our house pretty much 24-7. My husband glumly tolerates it, bless his heart! I'm not a fan of the - let's just say repetitive - mixes on the radio that play the same Frosty and Rudolph songs over and over again. I prefer the old standards, but am always happy for a new twist. That is why I love "Come Let Us Adore Him" by The Lower Lights. There are lots of great songs on this album, and the all come with a real folksy, vintage Appalachian style. Their harmonies are exquisite, and you just can't go wrong with a banjo. Ever! Their "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" makes me feel all Christmas-y - I love it!
"The Work," which is a tribute to missionary work. *Sigh* It is awesome. There is a song on there called "Bless My Son" that actually makes me cry when I hear it - I think about Dill and even though he isn't my son, those are the same feelings I have for him. You MUST check this one out!
My daughter Georgia is LOVING Katherine Nelson's song, "Beautiful." It has a great message that you're beautiful just the way you are! It's girly and edgy - just like Georgia!
And of course, I can't post about music I love without mention of "Scripture Power" which is the sequel to the "Popcorn Bopping" CD that I am literally obsessed with. The new CD has a version of "The Wise Man and the Foolish Man" that will knock your socks off!
