Love One Another

Well, Matt Child requested Love One Another, so I did both the hymnal and children's versions. 

Last weekend was conference, and I thought it was grand.  I really liked the talk by Holland about not just giving up our beliefs because people claim that resisting sin and immorality is "not accepting" and "non-loving."  I hear that argument a lot to justify sin and immorality...."well, God is a God of love, so you should just accept everything!"  Yes, God is about love, but also, he has to follow justice, mercy, and His own set laws.  

I thought the them was very much about having courage despite the changing moral climate of our world.  I am sure it has been so since the dawn of time.  People of the church will always be separate from those of the world.  

Anyway, a little soap-boxy, but here they are:

Love One Another - Primary Arrangement
Love One Another - Hymnbook - duet

Im trying to be like Jesus

Another great request...actually, I had to go searching in my old files, cause I thought I had done this one, but apparently not!  Here it is!  Also, someone requested a video of me and my kids singing some of these things...I have to be honest here, I am not super musically talented.  I know how to amateurishly play the ukulele and I sing like a dead whale.....so, anyway, I have to apologize, I probably won't be posting any videos!  Sorry!  I don't want to offend anyone.

I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus

Thanks for the Request

Anneliese sent in a request for a few songs.  Here they are.  There was an EFY song request, and one from the Youth theme song for the year, but they didnt seem to transfer well, so I am still working on them. 

He Sent His Son

Ye Elders of Israel

Thanks to Ryan Skalla for recommending this tablature.  The chords are from the Simpified Hymn Book, and the notes were from the big Hymn book but transposed to a key higher. 

Hope this helps.

Ye Elders of Israel

happy pickin

A Few More Christmas Hymns

Last week, we had a Christmas devotional at my ward, and one of our Bishopric, who happens to sing quite well, little did I know, sang, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day."  I have never really liked the song too much until his acapella singing, but it had a great message, so I decided to write it in Uke tab as well.

I also noticed a few other hymns I hadn't done last year, so I added them as well.

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
It Came upon the Midnight Clear

Someone requested the snowman song, but I think I forgot to share it, so just in case, here it is.
Once There was a Snowman

And, the Christmas song I have sang in church like twice over 33 years.
While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks

Have a Merry Christmas.

Snow-mageddon 2013

Well, we all survived the snow-mageddon 2013 in the midwest here.

Brad (not me, Brad) but a different Brad, requested Once There Was a Snowman, so here it is!

Once There Was a Snowman

As always, let me know if it did not work.

Merry Christmas

Excellent Song Request

Thanks to Travis B for the request

I hope this song is enjoyable (and accurate!)  Please let me know if you find any errors, spelling, or notes...etc.  I had to make it all 1 note higher cause there were too many b's in it.

Lead, Kindly Light

Also, if you are playing some chords in primary, I think I am a Child of God   is a great one because it is a well known tune, and the chords mimic the melody somewhat well.

Another good one, for ease of chords (although Bflat isn't my favorite/easy chord) is I Hope They Call Me On A Mission

Have a great day
