Sunday Morning Music

I try really hard to listen to music on Sunday mornings that brings the Spirit into my home and gets me ready to go to church. Music is so inspiring to me. The times in my life that I have felt the Spirit the strongest have been when there was music. So I'm pretty picky when it comes to my Sunday morning music. I have a hard time with some LDS music, so when I find a treasure I have to share it.

Last March my Aunt and Mom bought tickets to a show in St. George and told me I had to come down. I didn't really know much about it. It was a country music group singing about Joseph Smith. I wasn't too excited about it, I'm not a huge country music fan, but I went anyway just for something to do and to make Mom happy.

The show changed me in ways that I can not put into words. I've always had a very firm testimony of the Prophet Joseph. It's the one place in my testimony that never wavers. This show solidified that testimony in ways I didn't realize were possible. I was touched beyond description.

Joseph: A Nashville Tribute to the Prophet is so inspiring! I love all the songs. Every time I listen to it I have a new favorite song. Today as I was listening these lyrics really stuck out to me- From Candles "And then the Spirit danced within me like soft candlelight." All the lyrics can be found here.

So if you're looking to be inspired this is one cd I definitely recommend!
