We Will Remember
By Tommy Walker
As I was writing Stones of Remembrance, I developed a playlist of songs that I listened to to help me focus my heart and mind on God's Word and how best to communicate the idea behind legacy journaling. There was one song that became the anthem of my writing sessions--and expresses exactly why I felt compelled to begin my own legacy journaling project. Tommy Walker's song, We Will Remember, resonates in my heart and I think it will with yours too!
Royce and I met Tommy and his wife, Robin, when we hosted a conference for worship leaders on a cruise several years ago. I loved sitting in on the sessions that he led for songwriters. Listening to him teach, I realized that regardless of the type of art that you create, the process is much the same. Tommy always took the class directly to the scriptures and said, "the best songs come from something that you have experienced personally during your time in the Word." I would say that is exactly where I want to begin each time I sit down to work on a page in one of my legacy journaling Bibles.
Tommy has graciously allowed me to share a free download of We Will Remember with you. You can get it by clicking this link:
