Hi I'm Bonnie.

I'm a Mormon. I am a wife and mother of six. I have a bachelor of arts degree in music. I'm a lyricist for Book of Mormon hymns.

About Me

I am happily married to John, and we have six children--two sons, and four daughters. We raised our children according to the teachings of the LDS church, to the best of our abilities. One of my passions in life has been developing my talents and helping my children to develop their talents as well. I am a piano player and lyricist, and my children have had many years of training in piano, dance, and singing. At age 48 I went back to school and got my bachelor of arts in music with a piano emphasis. Over the last six years, I have been writing the lyrics to Book of Mormon hymns with Janice Kapp Perry as the composer of the music. http://www.ldsmag.com/component/zine/article/8514?ac=1

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this religion has a fullness of knowledge and truth that cannot be found anywhere else. The gospel brings so much joy into my life. I am so grateful to know that my marriage to my husband will last for time and all eternity, and that our children are sealed to us in an eternal family unit.

How I live my faith

I am the music chairman in our congregation, and I also play the piano in the women's organization. In addition, I teach a lesson to the women once a month. I get much satisfaction from serving in my church in these ways. Recently, my collaborator, Janice Kapp Perry and I released a CD and songbook/script for a Book of Mormon fireside or program. This CD has eight new hymns based on Book of Mormon themes. Janice arranged the hymns for choir and soloists, and Merrill Jenson orchestrated the music for this CD. It was recorded by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, and the vocals were directed by Tammy Simister Robinson, and recorded by some of the best vocalists in Mormondom. Our hope is that this Book of Mormon program will strengthen others' testimonies, and perhaps even lead investigators of our church to the truthfulness of the gospel.
