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 eleven 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. If you want to know the miracle that triggered my ability to write music, please visit my website, "www.conniestauffermusic.com". There are many original pieces of music included that don't fit the genre of the shared Free LDS Sheet Music website.
Song background:

The day was planned and I was on it.  I had finished reading my scriptures and enjoying time in the "Come, Follow Me" curriculum.  I had no intentions of writing music this day.  But as I walked past my piano, it beckoned to me to sit down for a minute.  This piece came almost in its entirety.  I felt like it was finished at two verses.  Then I read a conference talk that spoke of ministering in a new way and feeling the creative juices flow.  Verse #3 came rather quickly as well.  It was a very fun experience for me and gave me encouragement that there are still songs to be written. 

I am still trying to find a different voice to record, but what I have done is sufficient to let you know how the piece sounds.

Lyrics: LYRICS:
Verse 1
I open up my scriptures with desire to follow He,
who bid to me from Galilee, "Come, see and follow me."
I pray and ponder as I read, sincere to come to know
My Savior in a sacred way, then thoughts begin to flow.

Chorus:
Come, see the path that Jesus walked.
Come, see eternal truths He taught.
You'll come to know that through His love
you're blessed eternally.
You'll hear His voice speak softly as He says,
"Come, follow me."

Verse 2
I pray that as I read each day my heart and views will change;
My actions and my nature will reflect my Savior's name.
That in my efforts I will have the Holy Ghost with me,
To bear strong witness of these truths and of eternity.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
The scriptures invite us to be creative as we serve.
Each child of God must come to know the blessings God reserves
For those who love and minister the way that Jesus taught.
Our love will grow for others as we walk as Jesus walked.

Repeat Chorus

3rd Ending
Come, follow me.
