More about Katy Francom:
Katy Francom has experienced a life full of music. She started violin at age 5, and grew into playing the piano with the help of her very patient mother, but singing has always been her first and truest love. She has a BA in music from BYU, where she learned from the best, and has spent the last 20 years building on that foundation, while simultaneously forgetting more than she cares to admit. She has taught piano and voice for the last 19 years and has directed various ward choirs a total of 7 times! Composing music is an endeavor that she finds deeply rewarding.
This is 1 Nephi 1:1 set to music. It's a new year, and with it comes a new Primary class! This year, I told my class that they could each choose one scripture and I would put it to music for them. Caleb knew immediately what scripture he wanted, and this is the result! Thanks to my daughter, Jenna, for her invaluable input.
Lyrics: I, Nephi, having been born of goodly parents, therefore I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my father; and having seen many afflictions in the course of my days, nevertheless, having been highly favored of the Lord in all my days; yea, having had a great knowledge of the goodness and mysteries of God, therefore I make a record of my proceedings in my days.
