Welcome to my blog!

This has been a sharp learning curve for me, getting this blog up and running. I've stuck with it, though, because I want to have a place for sharing information and comments about my CD. Thank you to those who've given me helpful tips along the way!

One of my favorite stories so far comes from my friend who is 100 years old in Anacortes, Washington. He is one of the dearest people I've ever known. When he got my CD in the mail he didn't have way to listen to it, so he took it down to the cafeteria at his assisted living home and had them play it for everyone there! He said it made a lot of people very happy. Can you just picture it? Since then he has gotten a CD player in his own room, and told me that he listens to it over and over again to his heart's content. And that made me very happy.

Yesterday my 4-yr old and I were listening to it in the car, and he said, "Mom, I love this song. It makes my heart feel so good." And then the next track: "Mom, this one makes my heart feel really good, too."

That is exactly what I hope will happen for everyone who hears this. Please feel free to leave your comments about it here!

About Kirk Davies

Kirk Davies studied piano accompaniment at the University of Utah, completing his degree in 1986. He now serves as an active duty colonel in the United States Air Force and is presently stationed at Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan. He and his wife, Cynthia, have three children. When time allows, Kirk enjoys writing hymn arrangements and usually has two or three new tunes rattling around somewhere in his head. Kirk composed this arrangement of "Love At Home" for a church choir he conducted. He liked the words found in the LDS hymnal, but thought the text would benefit from a more appealing musical accompaniment.
