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:

This was a piano solo first, and my husband loved it. When my Mom heard it, she heard a song and put the words to it. She was the epitome of these lyrics. It was sung in the valley where she lived quite a bit for a few years. I’m sorry I don’t have a recording. The electronic version is the next best thing.

Lyrics: A call that came today, involves the sister down the way. It is a blessing rare. The Lord has placed her in my care. May I fill this hallowed call and strive unceasingly to fill it righteously and bring to it my greatest love. So this sacred task of mine needs a dedication beyond duty. It requires my constant prayer. The Lord has placed her in my care. So I pray that the Lord will help me fill her world with beauty. To her my gifts I'll bear. For He has placed her in my care. I'll be her friend and mentor too. We'll share the simple things; the joy the gospel brings. I'll share her joys and sorrows too. Yes, this I'll do. This sacred task of mine, may I fill it in the manner of the Master. With her my gifts I'll share, for He has placed her in my care.
