For several years, I have given my music away for free. That's right - not one cent. I have been met with resistance from the "pay folks" and have been the indirect subject of how free music isn't really appreciated yadda yadda. As I have and will continue to maintain my music is my way of paying it forward. Because the Lord has blessed me with the talents and I really have no desire to make any money from my music, I have wrestled with how I can feel better about what I do and dismiss the critics. And let me say, I have no problems with those who do sell their music - just their communication on why they think that pay music is superior to free music.

So, effective immediately my music will have a cost. The format is quite simple:

If you use my music in any performance, I would request you make a donation to either the general missionary or humanitarian fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I don't care if you contribute $5.00 or $.05. It's just a way to further the work of the Lord by you paying it forward. Think of the good you can do for a struggling missionary or refugee seeking refuge and safety. The scripture, "...if ye have done it unto the least of these, ye have done it unto me" comes very clearly into my head.

I don't need or want to know of your contribution - that is up to you. My website will be updated with this information. I hope you find favor with this new method and pray the Lords choicest blessings on you as you reach out to His children.

Come and See

MP3 - Come and See
PDF - Come and See

I wrote this because I have been reflecting upon the life of our Savior. This composition for piano and voice reflects His entire life. We are invited to Come, and See. I hope you enjoy it and blessed Easter to you.
See the new babe in the manger laid,
hear the great joy sung from heav'n above.
Christ is the lamb without blemish, pure,
born to redeem us all.
See the boy stand at the temple there,
teaching the learned ones of God above.
Jesus, Messiah is speaking truth,
speaking of joys untold!
Come, and see the service He gave,
see Him heal, the dead He did raise,
If I but follow in His footsteps,
His love will set me free.
See Him alone in the garden there,
praying in agony for our sakes.
See the blood flowing from within His pores,
Jesus is pleading for you and me.
See them all mock and deride Him,
crowned with branches of thorns.
Crucified, no sin committed
all for our souls, He did win.
Laid in a tomb He was placed there,
three days in silence did lay.
Then on the third day He raised up
Living Son, Savior,and King!
He will reign glorious forever
His work on this earth it will grow,
bringing souls unto salvation
bringing us home to our God!
Come and see Him from heav'n come
our eternal Savior, our friend.
Coming to earth, His creation,
claiming us all as His own!
Come and see!
Come, and see!
