Since moving in with my two incredible roommates, Allie and Katie, we've enjoyed a special tradition together. Almost every night, after the friends go home and the laughter and giggles are done, Katie and I gather in Allie's room for a special treat. We all coozie up in Allie's bed as she sings us sweet lullabies. Church hymns actually.

If you know Allie, you might be laughing right about now. And for those of you who don't, let me clue you in. Allie doesn't sing. At all. At church she can hardly carry a tune. But bless her heart, when we all snuggle up at night the most sweet little melodious and childlike voice simply quiets us.

And she sings the most beautiful things. Just as we've about drifted off, she always ends with her Grand Finale, "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing." It's a real crowd pleaser. I don't know how she does it, but she always makes my heart smile.

Recently, the three of us came across this amazing video composed of still pictures depicting the life of Christ, set to the most beautiful version you've ever heard of "Come Thou Fount." Take a moment to watch and listen by clicking HERE. And as you do, think of little Allie, Katie, and me all snuggled up together in the dark. Enjoy!

Wow Aubrey...thanks for sharing that. That made my day...so beautiful. I'm going to post that on my blog...every Christian needs to see that.

I saw on the website that the exhibit is coming to Laguna Niguel Dec. 11 -15...what a blessing! We should all go check it out.

That was so beautiful and just where my heart needed to be today!

Now I don't know much, but I DO know that Alice is a little tone deaf. Still, she did her best in our ward choir (ask her about the time we ruined the performance when we started laughing.) And I still love her so. What a fun little tradition.

Sorry, that was me.

Yeah the photos are amazing. I saw the exhibit in AZ at the Mesa visitor center. A family friend Mark Mabry is the photographer and his work is awesome! The exhibit is truly one that you shouldn't miss. I love the depictions of the Savior in these photos. My favorite is the baptism of Christ and the joyful embrace that He and John the Baptist share as they were able to participate in a holy ordinance.
