The foolish man built his house upon the sand....

One of the few things that I miss about primary is singing time. The Elders quorum pretends to sing a hymn before our lesson each week, but it's just not the same. The passion that children naturally have is missing.

Music is a powerful medium. No other form of communication has more power over our emotions, or our actions. I believe there can be no substitute for good music. After all, it is from a song that I learned early on where to put my trust.

Like our musical tastes, our testimonies can vary widely. No two testimonies are the same. God speaks to each of us as individuals. I love that. My Father knows me, and how best to teach me so that I will truly learn. Ultimately, I am who I am because of my Savior. The Rock of my Redeemer.

That's all that really matters. If we build on that solid foundation, we will never fall. No matter what winds come, or how many floods rage. If we put our faith and trust in the Lord, we will stand strong.

The wind blows every day. Let us all shore up our foundations.

I can't tell you how many times my prayers have been answered from the words out of the hymns or primary songs. Many times I will be singing a song at chruch and a line from the song will just jump out at me, or I will be at home and a melody with the words I need to hear will pop in my mind. Music can touch my soul more than anything else.
