More about Jonathan Gill Thwaits:
Taking on every opportunity to testify of the gospel of Jesus Christ through music, Jonathan is serving as Primary singing time accompanist and previously served as the Primary chorister. He has been singing in ward choirs since a youth, influenced and guided by his dedicated musical mother through the formative years. While he loves to spend time playing many different instruments, most of his experience has been in vocal groups. From ages 9 through 12 he traveled and performed around the Western United States and Eastern Europe as a member of the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus. Moving on from there he participated in the Arizona High School All-State Choir three times before going on to sing in college choirs and to study music theory and composition for two years at The University of Arizona. While raising four children with his wife Marisa, he started a career as an electrical engineer in the semiconductor industry after getting a Master’s degree from Arizona State University. Leading up to this technical career he worked various jobs including delivery driver, piano mover, piano tuner, airport taxi driver, and school bus driver; but through all of these occupations and transitions, music has been a constant in his life as he has been blessed with time in his schedule to write, record, and perform musically on countless occasions. As a composer he has worked on projects ranging in style from jazz, to pop and rock but is now fulfilling a lifelong goal to apply his musical talents to create sacred themed music and to progress the work of God on earth.
Song background:

Personal Revelation has a melody that came to me in the Spring of 2019 when I doubled down on my goal to finish some pieces to submit for the Children's Songbook revision. I was contemplating ideas late one night and I started humming this melody. The next day at work I was humming it as I walked around the office and the lyrics started coming “I know that I’m a child, a child of heavenly parents. And so I know I have a home, a home in heaven above”. It was such a beautiful, and comforting thought to me, amid the frustrations of daily life I need to be reminded of these simple truths. The song goes on to talk about how prayer and revelation is available to all of us to lift us up and get us through the difficulties of life.
