Hi there! I’m Liz—a wife and mom of four who likes to play games, cook, eat good food, dance, sing, play instruments, and watch a few too many shows while I avoid cleaning. I have a degree in music education and currently teach private music lessons part time.
Here’s a little about why I started this site…
When the 3-hour block of Sunday meetings was cut down to 2 in 2019, I was thrilled! I had always wished we had a little more time for study as a family on the Sabbath. However, I wasn’t so excited about how much less music there would be at church (no opening and closing hymns in Relief Society any more!). So I made a point of including a lot more music in our family’s Come, Follow Me study, both on Sundays and throughout the week. There are so many powerful hymns and children’s songs that teach the principles of the gospel in such an effective way! I put together a list of songs for my family to use with our gospel study each week and shared it with friends on Facebook as well. But this list seemed like a resource that a lot of others might find useful, too, and I wanted to be able to share it with more than just my Facebook friends. So in 2020, I built this website to be able to share my weekly music lists and also some other resources I’ve compiled over the years. I hope that this site can make it easier for you to use music in your personal and family gospel study, as well as in your church callings. I’d love your (kind) feedback, ideas, and content suggestions to add to it.
