The past few years we have looked forward to the new youth music each year by Jenny Phillips. We were disappointed with this one. The lyrics are good, but the music sounds all the same.
We can shine!

The lyrics on this CD are uplifting and the music is beautiful! The instrumental tracks are an added bonus and we will use them in our Stake meetings and firesides. I have had the privilege of attending a few of Lyndsi's firesides for the youth and also the Relief Society organization. I always feel of the beautiful spirit which her music brings and the love and gratitude she has for our Savior. This CD is a must have!
I was so impressed with this cd...

I felt like it captured the spirit of the theme so well, pointing the youth to the principles behind our theme. It not only is a testimony, but teaches them what they need to do to Arise and Shine Forth. I love it!
Inspiring and beautiful!!!

We greatly anticipate the music Lyndsi Houskeeper writes for the theme each year. If you have ever seen Lyndsi perform, you will know that her songs come from a very powerful, personal testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Arise and Shine is a beautiful and uplifting variety of music that will convey the important message of this year's theme to our youth. We love the positive, testimony building lyrics, and there is a perfect mix of soft, sacred songs, as well as fun up-beat songs as well. Thank you Lyndsi, for taking time to provide this treasured music for our youth!!!
A fantastic CD for youth!
