The Challenge: What is your favorite hymn and why?
I LOVE music! It's amazing what music can do for your soul. I have found that sometimes in my life I have a hard time expressing what I'm feeling but then I hear the lyrics to a song and I feel like that song was made just for me! I also love the different rhythms and beats that each song in every genre bring. I'm glad that the question isn't "what is your favorite song?" because that would be impossible to answer. This is still very hard, but at least I can just name Hymns. I'll make a list of my favorites (notice the S) and then a second list of close runner ups that almost made my favorites. It's hard because what may be my favorites now may change tomorrow. My favorite songs change depending on my mood or what I'm going through in my life. Anyway, I'll share what I have enjoyed recently. I wish I knew more hymns!

I really enjoyed putting this list together. It makes me want to listen to more Hymns. I have been listening a lot to LDS artists but not Hymns. Both can be a very spiritual lifting experience, especially the hymns because they were written for us especially in our time.
