A Little Bit About My Love of Music and A Giveaway!

Welcome Blog readers from everywhere,

I have been given such a wonderful opportunity to provide a giveaway today through YOURLDSRADIO and YOURLDSMUSIC

But I thought first I would tell you a little bit about how I came across LDS music.

When I was sixteen years old I was finding that a lot of the music that was out there contained vulgar and suggestive lyrics.

I really thought that as a Latter Day Saint and by reading the Strength for Youth Pamphlet that I really should listen to music that is uplifting and inspiring and came across Gospel Music and Christian Music.

A year later I attended an EFY (Especially for Youth) conference in Calgary, Alberta Canada and received my very first EFY CD A Season for Courage.  I listened to that CD more times then I could count and could  sing many of the songs off by heart.  They not only became a comfort but became an inspiration and council through the lyrics.  I have since bought many EFY CD's and many other CD's by other LDS artists and have really come to love the music that has been inspired by the spirit.

I recently received an email from Your LDS Radio/Your LDS Music.  asking if I would like to do a giveaway on my blog.  It seemed like the perfect way to introduce my love of LDS music and have the opportunity to start writing again on my blog.

Offers Songbooks, Music, Sheet Music, CDS, and MP3 Downloads

I Have Been Asked to Give Away Two Fantastic Books on Motherhood.


Both Books Would Make a Wonderful Addition to Any Woman Entering Motherhood and Any Woman who is already a Mother.

I would photograph your heart

I would look into your eyes
I would see into your soul
I would hear the beat of the drum in your heart
I would feel your warm embrace
I would examine all your beauty
I would clasp my hand in yours
I would kiss your forehead deeply

a chance to win this camera,

Well That's A Fine How Do You Do... Ringing in 2012

Post Numero 75!  I can't believe it.  I've known it was coming for quite a while but I wanted to wait for a "Perfect" moment to write.  2012 seems like a good opportunity to do so.  I am actually quite excited by it.  I actually really couldn't figure out what to write as post 75.  I am really excited for the year ahead.  I really want to strive to be not only a better person, but a better blogger.  I'm also really excited to know that I have some fantastic resolutions and I'm really excited about that as well.  I am really hoping that they last the entire 366 days this year. Yes my friends this year is a leap year!  I decided to write a list of goals as this post as I can go back and look at it again and again.  I might even post it on my own wall so I see it everyday!  I was aiming for 75 things, but as you can see...  there are more than that.  Funny things happen at 3:20am!!  I need to stop or I will have like 300 goals for one year.. haha!
