Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!
Songs That Tell A Story

This week I’m honored to be the Spotlight Dancer at Music Moves Me – a music meme where you’re invited to share your favorite songs! My theme for the week is Songs That Tell A Story. I’ve chosen that theme to encourage you to share songs that resonate with you because you relate to the characters and theme of the song!

My first two songs – Fast Car by Traci Chapman and Living On A Prayer by Bon Jovi – resonate because no matter who we are and what our circumstances, we often struggle and dream of a better life. My third song – Because He Lives – tells the greatest story of all – the story of everlasting hope.

Enjoy the music and have a fabulous week!

Traci Chapman – Fast Car

Jon Bon Jovi – Living On A Prayer (Unplugged)

David Chowder Band – Because He Lives

Thanks for joining us – have an amazing week!

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

    Bullying in schools does affect lives and requires a serious approach by parents, school authorities as well as other agencies. This is my recent blog post on the subject

    Hopefully we can all help in bringing a stop to school bullying for the sake of our young ones.

    I always liked Tracy Chapman, and Bon Jovi… well everyone loves Bon Jovi especially me, but your last song really filled my heart and made me thing and put a smile on my face. Thank you for sharing such beautiful music with us today! So glad you were chosen to be our first Spotlight Dancer in a long time. Did you see the Spotlight Dancer button? It’s in my side-bar which is on the bottom of my blog which I have no clue how it got there trying to fix it now…. but yes if you’d like to post it feel free. HUGS AND YOU ROCK GIRLFRIEND! WOO HOO
