@davidarchie New song and video called My Little Prayer now up! Link in bio.
Something I try to do to each day is begin by saying a prayer in the morning, and then end my day with a prayer at night. Sometimes, however, I fall asleep before I say my nightly prayer. One time almost a year ago I had one of these nights where I fell asleep before saying a prayer. Something unusual happened.
That night I had a dream. It was different than anything I had experiences before. In my dream I was praying-having a conversation with God. The conversation was also different. I was singing. I could hear simple chords in my dream that I was laying a simple melody and prayer on top of.
As I was having this conversation in music with God, He told me to get up and write this down. I thought and said, “…but… I’m sleeping. I’m not sure I know how to get up from a dream!” He told me “if you don’t get up now, you’ll forget it in the morning.” I tried everything I could to wake up, and I did! There in the middle of the night I went straight to the piano with the words and melody I had spoken in my dream still clear in my head, and wrote it all down. It was the fastest I had ever written a song because I feel this one was given to me.
I’ve sung this song several times this year now and people kept asking where to find it so I felt it would be good to share it during this Holiday season. I hope you enjoy it and find encouragement to begin your own simple and sincere conversations in prayer! #mylittleprayer #prayer#christmas #lighttheworld

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
And in despair I bowed my head:
“There is no peace on earth,” I said,
“For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.”
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men.”
Till, ringing singing, on its way,
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
Of peace on earth, good will to men!
From we at The Voice to all of you,
Not one Smilebox this year but two-
For every year he’s been away,
Ring out the bells,
Ring in DA.

This will be David’s first birthday and Christmas away from home while on his mission. In the past, he has always managed to wrap up tour in time to be home for the holidays. This can be a difficult time for missionaries, when the sacrifices they are making seem most acute. According to this tweet from Kari, this is the last week to get your cards to her so she can get them to him in time.
Mail your Birthday and Christmas card this week to:
PO Box 4297
Apopka, Fl. 32704
Please take some time this week to get your cards mailed. Let’s let him know we remember him. ♥
True love requires action. We can speak of love all day long, we can write notes or poems that proclaim it, sing songs that praise it, and preach sermons that encourage it but until we manifest that love in action, our words are nothing but sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.”
–Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Look at all the letters coming in for D for the holidays! These will put a smile on his face when he gets them (KS) pic.twitter.com/NJ1k6wgD
Keep those cards coming! We have till end of this week to get them to her! Let’s see how big we can make him smile! 🙂

Our Star will go yonder for a couple of years and we will continue to follow him till he returns. But this is Christmas and the star of David is not David the star. Christmas is about the birth of the Christ child and what that means for all mankind. Whatever your faith, it is a time for being thankful and joyful for what really matters most. People to love and gifts to share. Not just those of a material nature as the gold, frankincense and myrrh the wise men gave, but the gift of ourselves and not just at Christmas but every day. This Christmas I hope we can all find true meaning and joy through giving. I will start by sharing my favorite scene from my favorite Christmas movie and end with David singing the carol from the closing music.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at The Voice to all of you.
