His brow was pierced with many thorns
His hands by cruel nails were torn
When from my guilt and grief forlorn
In love He lifted me
As we think, in a focused way, on Christ’s crucifixion today, we are making the song file and lead sheet to the song “He Lifted Me” available as free downloads at, Jim Spencer Music.
Blessings to you, as you remember His death today, and as you celebrate His glorious resurrection this Sunday!

We are putting on a one day pledge drive today to raise 75% of our Kickstarter goal. You can learn more about it in our new Seriously Silly Update video here. Thanks!
Today we posted a fun video update at our Kickstarter page. You can check it out here.
We are rejoicing that another little one is on the way. This new addition to our family is due this fall. Thanking the Lord that I am past the sickness that typically comes with the first trimester and starting to have a little more energy! We are all looking forward with great anticipation to his or her arrival!
Many people have been asking when the next Children’s Scripture Memory Songs CD will be available. We are excited to announce we are ready to record the next project in the series, Children’s Scripture Memory Songs 2! This 2nd CD will have 13 brand new scripture memory songs.
We are launching a Kickstarter campaign today to fund the production of the CD. Kickstarter provides the opportunity for friends, family, acquaintances, and anyone, to be involved in the making of the project by pledging toward the production cost of the CD and in turn, those who pledge receive exciting rewards.
We would love it if you would check out our Kickstarter page which has a video describing the project as well as additional details about the campaign.
Thanks so much!
Last week, Jim posted an article at The Family Worship Resource Center reflecting on how doing family worship in your home is an important spiritual discipline but it is not a “magic pill” for raising the “perfect” christian family. We encourage you to check it out if you haven’t already.
For the beauty of the earth
For the glory of the skies
For the love, which from our birth
Over and around us lies…
I am reminded this morning of the Psalmist’s self-instruction, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits,…” Ps. 103:2 With even the most modest reflection, there is, for sure, so much to be thankful for – indeed, “…the Lord is good;…“ Ps. 100:5
May the Lord richly bless you today as you think on all of His benefits and give thanks to Him!
We hope you enjoy the little Thanksgiving lyric-video attached in this post!
Happy Thanksgiving, from all the Spencer Family!
This summer and fall has proved to be an unusually busy one for our family. We have been traveling some, with Jim speaking in churches on family worship and making preparations to transition into full-time ministry after the first of the year.
Also, over the past couple of months, we have been working on a DVD project for Jim Spencer Music. It will contain music videos for all of the songs from the Children’s Scripture Memory Songs CD. We will keep you posted as we get closer to the release of the DVD. As a preview, above is the video for Trust In The Lord. We hope you enjoy it!
