    I love your website and your ideas and knowledge! Thank you so much! Can you tell me what the hand slap patterns for the first verse are for older children? It’s not coming up highlighted so that I can click on it and go to it. Thank you again for all of your help!

    I was just called to be the Primary music leader. Last time I did this was 50 years ago! I have been to some of your classes in the Beaverton music workshop and have been studying your book. I love your ideas and will be using them all the time. I have a lot of questions, but I wanted to start with this — If you do the same verse of the same song for four weeks (using different teaching methods), how do you ever find the time to do *all* the verses of *all* the songs each year?

    Sharla, you will be in georgia in March. Will you be able to sell your book there?

      Dear Lynn, I can only take 50 pounds on the airplane and even though wonderful people are gathering some rhythm instruments and carpet squares and handbells there so I don’t have to bring them, I probably won’t have room for more than one or two books in my carry on. Do you have someone who would like one?
