Last night, my older two children had the opportunity to perform at their first recital! They have been taking lessons for about a year and a half now. They are progressing very nicely and we are so proud of them. Our hope is that they will be able to play some simple hymns by this summer. Our church is need of good pianists, as many churches are. One reason we want the children to learn to play the piano, is because this is a talent that can be used for the Lord in many ways. Choir, congregational singing, nursing home ministry, and the mission field are just a few examples. We want them to use all of the gifts God has given them for the Lord. After all, life is for service!
Here are some photos of the night:
Matthew was very good during the performances!
My Mom drove over with her best friend, Marie. It was a blessing to have their support. 🙂
After the recital, Terry snapped this of me, Mom, Lauren and Mitchell. I’m so proud of them!
Lauren and Mitchell, with their wonderful teacher, who is homeschool graduate herself, Miss Susanna. She and her family have been a great blessing to us. I asked the Lord for a piano teacher and He gave us Susanna! She is also a godly example for them to be around. God is so good!
Here are the videos of their performances in the order they appeared live for our loved ones far away.♥ We miss you and love you!
Lauren got to play a duet with her teacher. 🙂

Mitchell’s solo. He started laughing from nerves when he introduced it! 🙂
It was a fun evening. Oh my, look at the time! Time to head to piano lessons!
