In the preface to the Latter-day Saint hymnbook, the First Presidency shared these thoughts:
“Music has boundless powers for moving families toward greater spirituality and devotion to the gospel. Latter-day Saints should fill their homes with the sound of worthy music.”
How can families use the power of music to teach gospel principles and testify of Christ? It’s as simple as singing together! However, parents may feel intimidated by a lack of musical skill or talent. That’s where FamilyHomeEveningMusic.com comes in.
Featuring the exclusive orchestrations of K.D. Christensen of Sacred Music Studio, the website was designed to help you and your family feel more confident and connected when you sing your favorite Primary songs. Just click on the song you’d like to sing together. You’ll be taken to a sing-along video with beautiful music videos that contain the accompaniment to the song. The lyrics will also appear on the screen, helping keep your children entertained as they sing.
Available songs include:
- I Am a Child of God
- I Feel My Savior’s Love
- Love One Another
- If the Savior Stood Beside Me
- A Child’s Prayer
- and many more!
Chistensen created the website as a free resource and hopes it becomes your go-to music resource when looking for songs for your family night. Use the videos to help bring more joy and fun into your family home evening lessons. You can also use them anytime you want to sing as a family or learn new Primary songs together.
By using these songs, you can better help children learn and embrace gospel principles. For example, children can come to know the Savior and His Atonement when they sing Gethsemane. Want to teach about receiving revelation and how to follow the prophet’s counsel to Hear Him? You can sing If I Listen With My Heart. Children feel the Spirit of the Lord and build their own testimony as they sing these sacred songs that teach truth.
“The singing of hymns is one of the best ways to put ourselves in tune with the Spirit of the Lord. I wonder if we are making enough use of this heaven-sent resource in our meetings, in our classes, and in our homes,” President Dallin H. Oaks taught. “We should use hymns when we need spiritual strength and inspiration.”
