More about Laura Sonderegger:
I am the kind of person who thrives on sunshine, sharing, singing, and smiles. For the past 8 years, I have coordinated a 9-woman SSA singing group called "Jubilation" which performs at retirement homes, senior centers, church luncheons and socials. In 7th grade, I won a "Reflections" contest for composing a piano score called "Dancing Snowflakes" and never composed again - until February 2019. During a study time with the Come Follow Me program on the topic of worship I felt a heartfelt desire to improve the quality of worship in my life. As I was reading Alma 26, where Ammon "glories in the Lord", I thought to myself, "This is what worship sounds like." I began jotting phrases down in my journal and had the thought that Ammon's words were so beautiful someone should put them to music. Instantly I could hear a melody in my head. I straightway went to my piano and plunked out the tune, capturing it on some lined paper. I found an on-line composing software and within an hour I had the clear outlines of the hymn. While I have worked to capture the grandeur of Ammon's words in the score, the words never varied from what I originally wrote down. Since then I have added 10 additional scores with music and lyrics - both hymns and primary songs. Everything changed for me that day. I discovered a previously unearthed talent Heavenly Father wants me to develop and share. My personal worship has dramatically changed because the scriptures and words of the prophets sound melodic to me and I yearn to capture the words through song so they can more fully penetrate the heart and mind. As I work on each score, the message sinks deep into my soul and I know composing music for the Lord will continue to be a life-long joy and blessing.
Song background:

During a study time with the Come Follow Me program in February 2019, I followed a link to the October 2016 conference talk by Bishop Dean M Davies called The Blessings of Worship

He said: Latter-day Saints are exceptional when it comes to serving in Church callings. But sometimes we may go about our work routinely, as though we are merely performing a job. Sometimes our attendance at meetings, our participation in the sacrament and our service in the kingdom may lack the holy element of worship. And without that, we are missing an incomparable spiritual encounter with the infinite—one we are entitled to as children of a loving Heavenly Father.

Far from being an accidental, happy occurrence, worship is essential and central to our spiritual life. It is something we should yearn for, seek out, and strive to experience.

When we worship God, we approach Him with reverent love, humility, and adoration.

This sparked a heartfelt desire to improve the quality of worship in my life. Continuing with my study that day, I opened my Book of Mormon and happened to be reading in Alma chapter 26, where Ammon "glories in the Lord".


1 My brothers and my brethren, behold I say unto you, how great reason have we to rejoice; for could we have supposed when we astarted from the land of Zarahemla that God would have granted unto us such great blessings?

His brother Aaron rebuked him, saying: Ammon, I fear that thy joy doth carry thee away unto boasting.

11 But Ammon said unto him: I do not aboast in my own strength, nor in my own wisdom; but behold, my bjoy is full, yea, my heart is brim with cjoy, and I will rejoice in my God.


As I read those words I thought to myself, "This is what worship sounds like." I began jotting some of Ammon’s beautiful phrases down in my study journal and felt like someone should set them to music.


What I realized was that Ammon was able to truly worship the Savior because he had needed the Savior’s help.

 12 Yea, I know that I am anothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will bnot boast of myself, but I will cboast of my God, for in his dstrength I can do all ethings

27 Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to aturn back, behold, the Lord bcomforted us, and said: Go… and bear with cpatience thine dafflictions, and I will give unto you success.


By looking back – Ammon was able to see the tender mercies of the Lord. How Christ’s grace had enabled and strengthened he and his brethren during the trials and more importantly that Christ fulfills his promises.

I testify when we reach for Jesus and invite his healing power into our lives, Christ becomes our personal Savior. Not just Jesus, but as Nephi says, MY Jesus.


16 Therefore, let us aglory, yea, we will bglory in the Lord; yea, we will rejoice, for our joy is full; yea, we will praise our God forever. Behold, who can glory too much in the Lord? Yea, who can say too much of his great power, and of his cmercy, and of his long-suffering towards the children of men? Behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel.

36 Now if this is aboasting, even so will I boast; for this is my life and my light, my joy and my salvation, and … I will give thanks unto my God forever. Amen.
