Christmas Music


Lights CD

Do you love Christmas music? I do! Just this year a Christmas CD I was blessed to be a part of creating a few years ago was released for free online. Two of the songs are ones I wrote, original instrumentals were written by friends, and then there were some classics in there too. There is also a story on the link below that tells you about how the start of this CD, titled “Lights” began. Enjoy!

Children’s book

Hi blog readers,

I just wanted to share that our local Kenton Bee newspaper wrote a very nice article about the book “Ethan and God”, which is a children’s book focused on comforting children experiencing hospital stays. It was written by my sister Sandra Brese Rice and illustrated by her neighbor and friend Linda Swanekamp.

Here is a link: Ethan and God article

Hello blog readers!

I published an article on change initiatives on my Linked In page today in case you are interested in this topic. Perhaps it will help the next time you either lead a change initiative or experience one.

Siblings rock on “Do you hear what I hear?”

At a leadership program I was facilitating in the last year, a person I met there told me about his kids and a music group they created. I checked out their Youtube videos after he recommended where to look. I thought I’d share this video of them singing “Do you hear what I hear?” since it is Christmas season. I hope they continue to make beautiful music together. As a sibling who has sung with her sisters since I was young, I found this group of siblings singing together to be an absolute delight.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
