MY MUSIC WAS FREE
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.

I'll Walk Today As Jesus Walked
MP3 - I'll Walk Today As Jesus Walked
When I heard our Prophet say the words in the recent General Conference, "...walking where Jesus walked is less important than walking as He walked", I KNEW I had to write a Primary song emulating that thought. Once again, I turned to my friend and fellow MoTab member, Michael Young for the words. I think his words are perfect. I love to hear Primary children sing, and when they sing simple truths, I believe Heaven smiles upon them. I hope that it brings a smile and maybe even a tear as you read this song. I know it has impacted me.
I'll walk today as Jesus walked.
I'll help someone I see in need.
I'll comfort someone who is sad, one of His lambs that I can feed. I'll walk today as Jesus Walked. I'll speak kind words the whole day through.
Just like the prophets tell us all to do. I'll walk today as Jesus walked. The Holy Ghost will help me know how I can share my little light,so that my faith can help me grow. I'll walk today as Jesus walked. And I know He will walk with me, and help me ev'ry day to walk as He.
