MY SERVANT JOSEPH (1993 / 2005)

I will never forget the experience of creating My Servant Joseph. Before I began writing, I wanted to fill my soul with an understanding of Joseph. I spent long hours reading, each day for weeks, immersing myself in Joseph’s own words, whether written by his own hand or those he dictated to scribes. As I read I would make notes of words and phrases that jumped out at me—things that felt important to include in the messages of the production. As the days passed, I was blessed of the Spirit to begin to almost hear, as it were, in Joseph’s words the tone of his voice, the inflections and expression of feeling. It was like I began to know how Joseph spoke and what was important to him as a human being. The Spirit of God was giving this to me. It was unforgettable. The entire project, except for one song, which I had written earlier on, was then created in a matter of a few weeks. I felt very led and blessed of the Lord in this. Later as I began to perform the songs from this production, it was repeatedly manifest to me by the Spirit in great power that Joseph Smith was called of our Father and led intimately by our Savior in the work of the restoration. I testify that it has been communicated to me from the heavens that Joseph is the Lord’s mighty servant, called in the latter days to bring about His marvelous work. My Servant Joseph is a sampling of the fruit of that testimony.

In 2001…having been a great enjoyer of Christian music for sometime (thanks to my dear friend, Michael Webb)…it soon became evident to me that so many of the Saints would most likely never happen to discover some of the great Christian songs of our day, and therefore, never come to love them as I did. Therefore, when I was thinking about my next album, I decided I would record, along with some of my own songs, some of my favorite Christian ones…songs that spoke lovingly and personally of the wonder of Christ, as well as the great things our God has done for us. So, five of these songs were not written by me, but I have made their glorious messages my own as I have performed them over the years.

“…a seer can know of things which are past, and also of things which are to come, and by them…shall secret things be made manifest, and hidden things shall come to light, and…things shall be made known by them which otherwise could not be known. Thus God has provided a means that man, through faith, might work mighty miracles; therefore he becometh a great benefit to his fellow beings” (Mosiah 8: 17-18).

The prophet Isaiah said, “with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12: 3).

In 1994, as I was searching for direction on what musical project would be next for me to work on, I felt myself drawn to the women of the New Testament. I saw many women in the Savior’s life, who were integral to so many of the wonderful stories found in the gospels. They seemed to be the springboard for numerous profound doctrinal teaching moments, as well as for some of the fantastic miracles Jesus performed. I went through and picked out about 15 stories I wanted to focus on. However, as I tried to begin writing for the project, I felt myself in a slump about it. Nothing was coming. After prayer, I had the feeling that I was not suppose to write it all myself, but was to include women writers in the process. They would add some important insights not naturally seen through a man’s eyes. So I contacted six great women writers whom I had met or worked with previously. They impressed me not only because of their skill, but also their goodness. I told them what I had planned and asked them to consider participating in the project. As they each agreed, I invited them to come up with their favorite story to work on. Interestingly, they all chose separate stories. And only one, Hilary Weeks, came up with a story I hadn’t considered (she was also the only one who wrote her entire song.) After contacting these women, the floodgates opened for me. The inspiration began to flow pretty freely. As we worked together, the writing went quite quickly. Vickey Pahnke gave extra attention and worked on several pieces with me. I also asked Randy Kartchner to contribute in the writing process. He came up with some wonderful material and then magnified all of the songs by creating magnificent arrangements for each. Two of the songs came to me alone, but overall, it was quite a wonderfully collaborative effort.

These women in the New Testament LOVED Jesus. They sought after Him persistently and adoringly. No wonder He gave them so much of His time and attention. We can learn a lot from these women. I have tried, with these fine women writers, and Randy, to portray the beautiful and important qualities of these women at the Well. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” He is the Life; if we drink, we live.
