Review: “A Sacred Christmas” by Garth Smith

I recently had the opportunity to listen to an amazing new Christmas album entitled A Sacred Christmas by Garth Smith. The album starts out with a likely unheard version of For Unto Us a Child is Born that adds a very dramatic modern piano feel. Also throughout these incredibly beautiful piano melodies includes the voices and collaborations of Calee Reed, Michael Dowdle, The Sun Valley Carolers, Melinda Call, Mattie June Millward, and Lauren Sullivan. If you want to hear some new takes on some old songs that feel like both home and Christmas in the same package, then “A Sacred Christmas” is right for you. The title perfectly paints a picture of the feel of this album- that the subject of Christmas is sacred- and should be played as such. A Sacred Christmas is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music, and more, including Garth Smith’s website. For a little flavor of what this album brings, here is a music video for O Holy Night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaBb188wW-M Advertisements Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)MoreClick to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to...

LDS Candidate’s Perfect Response to “Golden Mormon Boy” Criticism

“There comes a time in each of our lives, what I like to call the moment of “selfhood”, where we need to understand for our self’s who we are and what we believe. I have had this moment. I’m not simply a Mormon conservative – I’m Patrick John Risk, who happens to be Mormon and a conservative! I don’t follow blindly; I strike my own path having truly seen and come to believe what I try and live each day. The sooner we each stop trying to label everything and everyone in our life’s, recognizing the uniqueness of each situation and person, the sooner we’ll come to discover what it really means to live in harmony with others.”

The 14-Temple Family Road Trip

Passing 14 LDS Temples on a 14-hour trip from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City. I don’t know what the pioneers would be more amazed by- that it only takes 14 hours to get from LA, or that there are 14 temples on the way. Either way, it’s a miracle in itself that both are true. What an amazing way for you and your family to be able to visit 14 temples in just 1/2 a day (or days, if you want to lengthen it a little), and feel of the power that comes from even being in the...

The Decision President Kimball Made on the 4th of July

“I remember as a boy going to the Fourth of July celebration on the streets of my little town and seeing some of the men as they took part in the horse racing as participator or as gambler, betting on the horses, and I noted that many of them had cigarettes in their lips and bottles in their pockets and some were ugly drunk and with their bleary eyes and coarse talk and cursing…”
