More about Connie Stauffer:
I was raised in Thatcher, Utah, a small town west of Tremonton on the north end of the state. Home is where I enjoy being the most. If I leave, it is usually for something very important. To relax or to waste a few minutes, I gravitate to my piano. My favorite thing to do is to turn out the lights when I'm alone and play to my heart's content. This is one way I find ideas for music. Another place where I've gotten more than a few ideas is when I've been exercising, whether it's walking the trails of Alpine, or riding my road bike. I think about my life and the issues of the day while walking, and those moments frequently end with music rattling through my head. I have a husband, five children and twelve grandchildren - all of whom are the light of my life. I'd rather be with any one of them than just about anything. However, I do enjoy my solitude, which is probably why the hobby of writing music has been so appealing to me. My mother was my music teacher until she said I had outgrown her. I then took from a wonderful lady who helped shape me. Oh how I would love to have a sit-down visit with her. She probably knows me better than anyone, as she was there as I was in the process of becoming. I've been blessed with a husband who is the wind beneath my wings. He's made every possible sacrifice to encourage my music - whether just enjoying playing or writing. Were it not for his support, there is no way I could take it to the level where I can share it. The music on this site is music from my heart over the past 38+ years. It has been my solace through hard times and my joy through the good times. Much of it was "unsolicited" by me; it just came. Some of it has come through assignments or good people trusting me with their lyrics. All of it has been a miracle in my own eyes, as it was not something for which I was trained. My fingers somehow knew how to produce what was rattling through my head and by brute force it has found its way to paper. I hope you will enjoy it and let me know how you are using it. My personal Website is currently under re-construction. We hope to have it up and running again soon. In the meantime, enjoy what I've posted. I love comments!
Song background:

The day was planned and I was on it.  I had finished reading my scriptures and enjoying time in the "Come, Follow Me" curriculum.  I had no intentions of writing music this day.  But as I walked past my piano, it beckoned to me to sit down for a minute.  This piece came almost in its entirety.  I felt like it was finished at two verses.  Then I read a conference talk that spoke of ministering in a new way and feeling the creative juices flow.  Verse #3 came rather quickly as well.  It was a very fun experience for me and gave me encouragement that there are still songs to be written. 

I am still trying to find a different voice to record, but what I have done is sufficient to let you know how the piece sounds.

Lyrics: LYRICS: <br/>Verse 1 <br/>I open up my scriptures with desire to follow He, <br/>who bid to me from Galilee, "Come, see and follow me." <br/>I pray and ponder as I read, sincere to come to know <br/>My Savior in a sacred way, then thoughts begin to flow. <br/> <br/>Chorus: <br/>Come, see the path that Jesus walked. <br/>Come, see eternal truths He taught. <br/>You'll come to know that through His love <br/>you're blessed eternally. <br/>You'll hear His voice speak softly as He says, <br/>"Come, follow me." <br/> <br/>Verse 2 <br/>I pray that as I read each day my heart and views will change; <br/>My actions and my nature will reflect my Savior's name. <br/>That in my efforts I will have the Holy Ghost with me, <br/>To bear strong witness of these truths and of eternity. <br/> <br/>Repeat Chorus <br/> <br/>Verse 3 <br/>The scriptures invite us to be creative as we serve. <br/>Each child of God must come to know the blessings God reserves <br/>For those who love and minister the way that Jesus taught. <br/>Our love will grow for others as we walk as Jesus walked. <br/> <br/>Repeat Chorus <br/> <br/>3rd Ending <br/>Come, follow me. <br/>
