Nearer my God to Thee

I am amazed by the power of good music. I have been listening to the BYU Vocal Point version of "Nearer My God to Thee" ( )for the past hour and I have felt so much peace. It tells me three things. The first is that I am so thankful for those who have to talent and share it so I can enjoy it. Second, that music has a very strong influence over who I am and what I feel. It is nice to know that if I want to feel the spirit, one thing I can do is simply turn on a good song and I can feel peace. Third, I know the church is true. It was fast and testimony meeting today and I didn't get up but I do know the church is true. Everything about it just makes sense and it has helped me become who I am today so I am extremely thankful I was raised in it. Also, because I am in the church and because I was lucky enough to come to BYU, I have met the most amazing friends. I had such a fun time with them this weekend!
