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 website has much of what is here plus a lot of songs that do not fall into the "Sacred Music" genre. Feel free to visit it. I love suggestions and comments!
Song background:

We were blessed that Covid did not come rock our world much. When it hit, I had time to pursue music that came; when it came. This is one of those songs. I don’t remember the seed that sprouted this song, but it is another musical call to "Follow Him", our Savior, Jesus Christ. I have loved focusing more on my Savior recently and words come first sometimes. Such was the case with this song. Thanks to Angela Dugdale who is the angel voice you're listening to. Angie's YouTube channel is: Angie Dugdale.  Check it out. She's awesome!!!

After the competition, I made a key change to spice it up a little. This is missing in the recording.

Lyrics: Jesus came to earth to teach us of a better way.
To show us by example that with Him we might stay.
He beckons and He calls us to follow in His path.
In this we’re promised all the Father hath.

We hearken to the words of God and marvel at His love
We seek to have His Spirit to guide us from above.
He lights the way before us. He says, “Come, follow me”.
When we will follow, joy is what we’ll see.

The mountains in our lives don’t always move as we design.
We’re given trials to teach us, and seek to learn God’s mind.
He knows our weakness; He wants for us to be
More like our Savior, who says, “Come, follow me.”
