This is a really cute parody of the song Fancy by Iggy Azalea done by my friend Summer Bellessa. If you're a mom with kids you will definitely relate to this! The outfits in this video are really cute and most of them are modest too.

It's Never Too Late by Jen Loch

I've been the children's primary pianist in my LDS wards for many years, and one day it occured to me that there aren't many songs about repentance in the children's hymnbook. So I decided to write one. This song is meant to be for kids and teens, but it can work for any age. I recorded it at home so it's not a professional recording, but I wanted you to be able to hear it. Hope you like it! -Jen

Here are the Lyrics:

Verse 1

If I ever do something I know is wrong
I might want to run from the Lord
And the guilt that I feel
When I've disobeyed His word
But that's when I need His help the most-
I'll cry to Him in prayer
I'll make the choice to repent
And do my best to make repair
Because I know He loves me
And He wants me on His side.
It's never too late
To do what's right.

Verse 2

No matter how big or how small it is
I can be forgiven
If I give them to Him
He will take away my sins
And He will also take away
The sorrow that I feel
Replacing it with peace and hope
As only He can heal.
The world can be a dark place
And the only light is Christ.
It's never too late
To do what's right.

Just look in places that you never thought to look before.

Music is used by cultures all around the world to convey emotion. When those emotions take you away from the Spirit and from spiritual growth, then that’s when things get sticky. I love all kinds of music. However, sometimes the songs I listen to don’t make me feel like a Daughter of God, instead more like a slave to the whims of men. While I do enjoy busting a move to Lil’ Wayne or Justin Timberlake, that kind of music is not what people with high standards should be listening to all the time.

My particular brand of music is music that most people wouldn’t think of listening to but can be the funnest of them all, for example, the songs that were written for the Be Thou an Example youth conference. Those were so fun and I love to listen to them all the time. They are especially fun if you liked High School Musical. I thought that the Example conference was like a Mormon HSM. But that’s just me. Other songs I have found by the wayside that most people don’t really know are Scripture Mastery songs! Before you judge me and think I am just some seminary Mormon freak, hear me out. I really like music that I can sing to and make up dance moves for. I just find that the SM songs are so fun and even I was surprised at how much I like them. I have all four years of SM songs on my MP3 player and all kinds of other songs like that.

If Scripture Mastery or Mormon HSM is not your flavor, just look in places that you never thought to look before. That is the way to find stuff that you lost: looking in places you never thought to look in.

I Was On the Ledge

LDS Music

Writer’s Name WithheldI have a small problem with keeping my priorities straight. I put the world in front of the Lord and the church. Starting at age 11, I wasn’t on the right path. In fact, I was more on the rocky ledge, grasping for a hand hold on to, so I wouldn’t fall to […]
