This song was collaboration with someone I’ve never met – Steve Garner. Jill Jasperson was our common friend and gave me several poems he had written, with his permission to put them to music, if I felt so inclined. This was a really fun one. I wrote the second verse and it is something I know is probably a sore spot to some. However, I do believe our thoughts can lift us up; they can bring us down.
When my oldest daughter was in Primary, she was asked to give a talk. Singing was her thing; not speaking. We wrote this song with the topic of the Word of Wisdom. She did great. This song was a flash in the pan and never sung again. I hope it gets a new life.
