Today in our Easter Church service at the Castlewood Canyon Ward, a brother shared an excellent testimony and stories about ways he feels our Saviors love. One of the ways that he said he feels closest to the Savior that strengthens his testimony is through music. He then challenged us to go home and listen to each other’s favorite songs about Jesus and have a conversation about why it is our favorite and share testimonies of how we feel.

We did this today right after church and it was great!

Click on the links below to watch the videos that we all shared with each other:

I Stand All Amazed (Vocal Point version)

Our son chose this one and talked about how he has a testimony of Jesus through prayer and scripture study. He said this song helps him remember all Jesus has done for us.

Gethsemane

Two of our daughters chose this one. They said the lyrics help them feel the Saviors love and of His sacrifice for them.

I am a Child of God

Our youngest daughter chose this one and said this song helps her feel close to God.

Greater (Mercyme version)

My wife chose this one and she testified of how He is greater than any pain we will face and through His sacrifice, we can give anything over to Him and he’ll heal us.

Savior, Redeemer of my Soul (Jenny Oaks Baker, Dallyn Bales version)

This song is very special to me. I was getting ready to speak at one of our congregations when a brother sang this song. It was the first time I’d ever heard it and the Holy Spirit testified to me very powerfully that Jesus is my Savior. He took my sins upon him and has redeemed me. I felt it again today.

My prayer is that you might feel a portion of the Holy Spirit that we felt as we each listened to these songs, contemplated the words, and testified to each other.

Also, I’d like to pay it forward and encourage you to do the same thing within your families.

Happy Easter!
