For Fellow Songleaders

The songs on this page are the selections from my full repertoire for which I’ve made shareable teaching pages. As a song carrier, songs come in many forms – sometimes through me (meaning I wrote or co-wrote them or heard the inspiration in nature and channelled it into a song), or in the spirit of sharing, usually from other song carriers. Songs often travel away from their source when they are shared; in each case I have done my best to track down as much information as possible about their origins, and honor the song and its maker(s). I create these pages as an act of love for each song, in hope that, if and when these songs travel, they (as much as possible) go forth with the correct credits, history, respect and intention. And in some cases I’ve linked directly to the song maker’s teaching page. I readily accept updated or corrected information about these songs and their cultures, if you know more than I do.
* Originals
** Have been in direct contact with the song’s writer about this song, or was there at the birth of the song myself
*** Denotes that I’ve made contact close to the source (eg, connected with someone else who is close to the songwriter, was there at the birth of the song, etc)
