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 personal Website is currently under re-construction. We hope to have it up and running again soon. In the meantime, enjoy what I've posted. I love comments!
Song background:

A tribute to a woman who was true to her faith from the minute she heard about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She never wavered. Her life wasn’t as easy as she’d have liked it to be, but she was a shining example to all of us of overcoming struggles that are true “thorns in the side”.  It was a testimony to me to watch her the last five years of her life and see just how drawn she was to helping others see the truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Truly she had a friend in Jesus.

Lyrics: The legacy left by my mother is tender and sweet to explain. <br/>She gave all her life helping others; to lift and to heal and sustain. <br/>She lived the truths of the Gospel. From evil she always abstained. <br/>Teaching brought joy like no other. To see a lost soul brought her pain. <br/>She loved like there was no tomorrow. Her faith in God’s Plan brought her peace. <br/>She cried when she spoke of her Savior. Her faith in His love never ceased. <br/> <br/>True to her faith she stayed to the end. <br/>She loved like her Savior. He was her best friend. <br/>She gathered friends like He gathered His sheep. <br/>She treasured each friendship; their secrets she’d keep. <br/> <br/>The mem’ries I have of my mother are tender and sweet to explain. <br/>The legacy left for her fam’ly is the life that she lived without shame. <br/>
