More about Jennifer Hoopes:
I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. We live in the small town of Taylor, Arizona. I took piano lessons for 3-4 years in elementary school and because I cried and begged to quit on a daily basis, I was allowed to quit if I promised to continue learning and playing on my own, which I did. I wrote my first song as a teenager but never shared with anyone. As I got older, I was more brave and my sisters and mom and I would sing them in church. I have always felt the spirit strongest through music and hope that by sharing my music, others can feel it too.
Song background:

This is a duet I wrote as a teenager about the relationship I had with my Savior at a time in my life when I felt I was all alone and that He was all I had. I wanted to believe that God wasn't just a powerful, universal being off in the distance who was watching my every move to determine if I went to Heaven or Hell. I wanted a personal relationship with Him. Thinking of my Savior as my friend really gave me peace and hope.

Lyrics: Verse 1:
He's always there, He hears my prayers
Even when sometimes I'm not sincere.
He understands, He holds my hand,
He guides my heart to keep His gospel near.
He'll never leave me when others deceive me
He sees, He knows where I have been.
I know He's there, the Lord, my Savior, my Friend.
Verse 2:
I know He lives, I know He gives,
To all of those who need His gospel light.
While in my youth, I'll strive for truth,
And never falter till I've learned what's right.
Verse 3:
He cares for me, and He can see
I want to live with Him again someday.
The gospel light is shining bright
Guiding me each and every day.
