The Iron Rod

I've been wanting to do something with a folksy feel. I chose this song because it has a rolling rhythm. I imagined strumming or picking on a guitar and singing this around a campfire while telling the story of "The Iron Rod" to my kids. It can be performed as a duet or choir.

Fear Not-Jordan Seminary Faculty

The song "Fear Not" was written by the Jordan Seminary Faculty. Apparently they took their web page down. I will try to post the sheet music soon, but if you need the music before I get that done, hit the "contact me" button, shoot me an email, and I will get it to you.

(Update) -- I have included this music on my "Download Music" Page

I didn't have time to write an entirely new song for Father's Day. I hope the fathers won't be too disappointed. I come up with something to sing with one of my old, favorite primary songs, though. The primary and youth will be singing "Daddy's Homecoming", (the one that starts out "I'm so glad when daddy comes home"). The primary will be singing the first, original verse. The youth choir will be singing a verse that I found on the primusic yahoo group. I tweaked, the verse a bit. I wish we had recorded it, but we didn't have time.

I'm so glad when my dad comes home,
He shoots some hoops with me.
He leads the family in scriptures,
prayer and F-H-E.

We go for walks and have long talks
He taught me how to add.
When I grow up, I want to be.
Just like Dad!

The kids loved it, and the the primary really enjoyed singing with the older kids.

Taught By Their Mothers

A few weeks ago, our youth choir was asked to sing for Mother's Day. I couldn't find anything that I liked, so I finally decided to write a song for the event. I didn't want a slow song, because the youth get bored with those kinds of songs. I took my inspiration from Helaman's stripling warriors and the pioneer youth. I am pretty pleased with the results. It is called Taught by Their Mothers, and I have included sheet music. You can also listen to the accompaniment below.

To Serve and Help the Lord While I Am in my Youth

For our first musical number, the Bishopric wanted the YM to sing for Scout Sunday. I wanted to include the cub scouts. I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for in sheet music, so I created this medley. It is a combination of “Put Your Shoulder to the Wheel” and “I Hope They Call Me on a Mission”, with the older boys singing PYSTTW and the younger boys singing IHTCMOM. You can find it here.
