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. If you want to know the miracle that triggered my ability to write music, please visit my website, "www.conniestauffermusic.com". There are many original pieces of music included that don't fit the genre of the shared Free LDS Sheet Music website.
Song background:

Can there be too many songs written for children about missionary work? That is what prompted the writing of this song. Again, it has never been performed.

Lyrics: When I grow up I want to serve a mission, <br/>To preach about the gospel and baptism <br/>To spread the word to Heavenly Father's children <br/>That He lives and loves us just as in the Bible days. <br/> <br/>When I grow up and go out on my mission, <br/>I'll need a testimony and conviction <br/>to set an example for Heavenly Father's children <br/>so they'll want to learn more about His plan.
