Greetings Fellow Worshipper,
Blessings to you in the Lord
1) Arrangements of Away In A Manger...
Here are a few arrangements of Away In A Manger. The first
arrangement is sung using a simple strumming pattern in a
couple different keys. There are 2 strumming patterns and a
picking pattern here that that work well with 3/4 tempo songs
like this one. The last arrangement is using very pretty
chords up the neck.
First download the printed music by clicking here. Print it out
so it’s easier to follow. Then listen to the audio and enjoy
singing this lovely Christmas Carol.
2) Christmas eBook & Christmas Book/CD…
The above Carol is taken from the Christmas eBook. It has
the arrangements you just learned, plus one of playing Away
in a Manger instrumentally. The eBook has many ways to
play 7 Christmas Songs, both with singing and as guitar solos.
You can learn more about the Christmas eBook by clicking here.
Would you like easy guitar arrangements for singing Christmas
Songs? ‘Songs of Christmas Joy’ by Steve Turley has easy chords
and is a book with CD.

3) Vocal Help…
New on the site is a ‘Vocal Warm-up’ CD. Rochelle, the
voice teacher, told me she has used these exercises thousands
of times for choirs. She said she made the CD with worship
leaders in mind.
This CD is an easy way to warm-up your voice in the car on
the way to church. I’ve been using it, and love it!
4) In Closing…
Do not let anything distract you from the joy of this season.
My Hard Drive crashed a couple weeks ago, and I am so
grateful that I was warned the day before to back everything
up. It was all backed up!
Today my starter died. When it didn’t start I walked to the
mechanics. Since my battery was so new, they suggested
just having it towed to the shop. Later the mechanic told
me my car could have caught on fire if I had chosen just to
jump start it and had driven it.
A part of the starter was stuck in the flywheel and the starter
would have gotten very hot, which would have melted the
wires which could have started a fire.
We are all promised that there will be trails and will be
problems. We are consistently given opportunities to ‘lean
not on our own understanding.’ Not that I’ve perfected it,
but I’ve noticed I’m not getting as emotionally caught
up in the problems.
I remember when a good friend told me he had come to
the conclusion that God was probably serious when He
said through James to Rejoice in all Trials, that God sees
trials differently than we do.
I have read the end of The Book many times and know for
certain that the ending is really glorious!! Would you join
me in choosing JOY when trails of various kinds appear…AND…
Worship Him with ALL your heart, because He
loves you with ALL of His!
Love & Blessings in the LORD,
