More about Shaillé Claypool:
I am a mom with four young children. In my "spare time" I enjoy writing songs. I love the gift of music and believe it can have so much influence for good. All my sheet music is available for free download on my website: claypoolmusic.org
Song background:

I write a song for each of my children, and this is the one I wrote for my oldest, Matthew.  The idea for the song came from things that were said in his baby blessing at church a few weeks after he was born.  The mp3 recording is of him singing it at age 10. :)

Lyrics: I came to earth and received a body.
I also was given the gift of agency.
The power is in me to choose each day,
The things I will think and do and say.

My spirit is strong and this battle I’ll win,
Through Christ I can conquer ev’ry sin.
My body and spirit will work in harmony.
To make the right choices and truly be free.

I can control my actions and my thoughts,
The Spirit reminds me of things that I’ve been taught.
There will be temptations along the way.
But I can stay safe as I study and pray.
