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:

This song came as a result of pondering one of my favorite hymns, "I Know That My Redeemer Lives".  It was certainly a phrase at a time, but came in bursts of inspiration as I pondered throughout my day. I'm so grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ and his atoning power. This seemed like a natural way to express those feelings.

Thanks to my friend, Michelle Sundwall, for sharing her talent to bump it up a notch.  You may notice small changes from the sheet music. These changes came after I sang it myself in Fast and Testimony meeting. This is my testimony of Jesus Christ.

Lyrics: He lives! I know my Savior lives!
Oh, the peace and joy this sentence gives.
He lives to guide me with His love,
As He advocates for me above.
I know He hears and answers prayer.
This is truth: I know of His kind care.
He lives to grant me rich supply
As He cares for me beneath his watchful eye.
I know His love can cleanse from sin,
If I invite Him in.
He meets me in my darkest hour.
I know for I have felt His power.
He is my rock! He is my shield.
I will trust in Him. I’ll give my will.
He marks the path; prepares the way,
Urging me to follow and obey.
He lives! Redeemer of my soul.
His sacrifice allows me to be whole.
His life on earth showed me the way
That thru my faith I'll live with Him one day.
He lives, and while He lives I'll sing
All my days, I'll give to Him and bring
His love to those who've lost their way,
That they'll want to live with Him again someday.
