Music is not my life, but I sure do love it!
Background: I have been singing for over 40 years. I am an amateur songwriter, and composer. I enjoy writing childrens songs and lullaby's. I love to sing patriotic and Christmas music, though jazz jumps in and I tend to ad-lib, (my biggest singing fault according to my husband, who, when he sits by me at church - claims I throw him off.) I also enjoy an older style of singing - involving little runs, lilts and a higher voice. I finished my "opus" (A Christmas Lullaby) after 15 years writing and it has been performed for the Nativity Celebration here in Springfield, Mo the past two years. (2007, 2008) I am the conductor for the Nativity Orchestra - last year - and have been asked to return. Yeaaaa! My favorite performance though, these past 25 years have been singing lullabies to my children when I have tucked them into bed. I have had my share of solos, ensembles, singing before millions and even a commercial - I was too young to realize it, but if anyone remembers "rub-a-dub-dolly", one of those little voices was mine. I was mortified for years. You won't know me - I am a bit of a wallflower, I do love music and the beautiful effects it can have on peoples lives. I still sing to my two youngest - a 5 year old and 6 year old and love to make up silly songs with them.
Interests: Continue singing to my children, writing music - I really don't have a choice, the stuff comes to me. Conducting, as long as they let me. Helping anyone who wants to know how to prepare themselves www.preparetodayfortomorrow.org / www.preparetodayfortomorrow.com and loving the good life God has blessed me with.
Goals: My primary interests are my family, raising my children with a knowledge that they are children of God, my next passion at this time is personal and family preparedness. I teach people what to do in case of emergencies, how to properly store food, how to create a food storage and give them the info they need to become self-sufficient and strong in the face of extreme adversity. Music is my next passion - it was my first, then I had children and then I had my "calling" per-se. Music will again top the list for me, as for today - I am doing this for me, because I love it, cause it won't make rich.
