Best of Bonnie Sue Butcher
Since the age of 13, I have wanted to write songs and sing, but finding my voice wasn't all it should be. I gave up trying for a long while. Later when I met the man of my dreams, he gave me inspiration to write again. But then I became a full time mother of three and quit writing until I was 60 years of age. I have been very ill since 1980 with the disease Fibromyalgia Syndrome. After becoming a reborn Christian and having a deeper faith in Jesus Christ, I have found that He gives me every word in every song I write. Often I write my songs in 15 minutes and sometimes 3 songs a day. All I need is a title or a topic and God gives me the words from there. If I can make one person happy through my songs, it would mean the world to me. I have dedicated this CD to my husband, my 3 children and their spouses, and my 3 granddaughters, whom I call my 3 Angels. Also, to my deceased parents and inlaws, and a dear friend who has listenend to my songs faithfully every day. This truly is a dream come true for me! I have chosen to donate $4 from the sale of each of these CDs; $2 to the Waterloo Worship Center in Waterloo, IA and $2 to the Fibromyalgia Syndrome Foundation. My CD is a mix of music that will hopefully appeal to a wide group of listeners.
