We've got a winner, people. Get the results and find out which children's song from the Primary Songbook was voted the most favorite of all.
In our Sept/Oct issue, we asked "Where are they now?" about many iconic Mormons--one of which was the band that produced this hilarious song. Check it out here.
Most of us think of LDS art as the same handful of paintings. But I'm here to tell you there is some beautiful new art out there by both new and well known artists. This is a look behind their work.
When I think of LDS art I think of the famous portrait of Jesus Christ in his red and white robes by Del Parson (you know, the one hanging in the foyer of every church meetinghouse). This piece, as well as other well-knowns like Arnold Friberg's Book of Mormon paintings, have kind of become the spokespieces for LDS art. While beautiful and classic, there are so many other LDS artists out there that deserve to be known, too.
This weekend, Deseret Book will be featuring the art of some of these talented artists, as well as holding a silent auction (see more details here). Here's a sneak peek at some of the artists and their work:
It's time to choose the all-time most favorite Primary song of them all! Choose from these five favorites from the LDS Children's Songbook and help us crown the winner.
You've helped us narrow down the Primary songs to your favorite top five and, wow, this last poll is going to be a tough decision! I was impressed to see a few lesser-known and less spiritual songs put up a good fight, like "Popcorn Popping," "Picture a Christmas," and "Mary's Lullaby." But I'm not really surprised to see the top five as Primary classics.
Good luck to your "favoritest" Primary song!
