The snow coats my driveway on the first day of spring when I am so ready for sunshine instead of gray skies and more snow shoveling. My mood lifts when I turn on one of my favorite songs "Good Day" by Nik Day.
I was happy to discover more inspiring music at last week's 2021 Worldwide Youth Music Festival. Free Printable Sheet Music is available for many of the inspirational Christian songs that appeal to teens. Some of my favorites include "A Great Work" by Nik Day, If You Believe by Patch Crowe and "Come to the Well" by Elyse Alexander.
