Some moments in life are so special that you want to bottle them so you can experience them over and over again and share them with everyone you know. I had one of those experiences while I was recording the Resisting Happiness audiobook earlier this summer.
In order to keep my voice fresh I usually record over a number of days for about four hours each day. On the second to last day I was recording the chapter “Let Your Light Shine”. This is one of Jesus’ central invitations in the Gospel. In the book I share how my son Harry likes to sing the song “This Little Light of Mine” each night before he goes to bed. If I don’t sing it with him, he says, “Light of Mine, Light of Mine!” over and over again until I do.
As I was sitting in the studio that day reading the words to the song, I thought, “We should get Harry in here to sing this for the audiobook.” So the next day I brought Harry down to the studio and we recorded it. Here are some pictures from that day, and, more importantly, the audio recording of Chapter 32 and Harry’s performance. Enjoy!
I also want to encourage you to sign up for our Best Advent Ever email program. We have some very talented speakers and authors who are going to help us all slow down and prepare for Christmas in a different way this year. Advent begins November 27.
