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.

God's Infinite, Eternal Power

MP3 - God's Infinite, Eternal Power
PDF - God's Infinite, Eternal Power

As I have been mentally and spiritually preparing for General Conference, I have been reading some previous Conference talks. One that I read impressed me so much that I know I had to do a hymn composition. Once again, I turned to my wonderful lyricist, Michael Young, and gave him my vision. Here are the lyrics:

1. The vessel is not greater than the oil that lies within it.
    The fire is so much brighter than the spark that does begin it.
    The sunlight does not come from him who draws back the dark curtain,
    nor does the moon shine on its own but shows the sun for certain.

    God's infinite, eternal power does sustain us every hour.

2. God's servants fill their lamps anew through His eternal graces.
    The Spirit's fire is kindled anew where the smile of His face is.
    The sunlight they allow to shine to all those now distressing.
    The greater light reflecting to all those who seek God's blessing.

    God's infinite, eternal power does sustain us every hour.

3. Then worthy vessels we must be and servants pure and ready.
    And humble, prayerful we must be on rolling waves or steady.
    So when God calls we too may rise, accept His heavenly power
    for when the bridegroom comes again, we know not when the hour.

    God's infinite, eternal power does sustain us every hour.

I hope you enjoy this, and please leave feedback. Thanks!
