EFY, or Especially for Youth, is held every summer in locations all over North America – a week-long session of classes, devotionals, dances and fun. I attended a few sessions as a youth, and had wonderful experiences making friends and building my testimony. My oldest is going to her first EFY next month, and she cannot wait! I was given the opportunity to review this year’s Especially for Youth CD, “Arise and Shine Forth”, and to also give away one album copy! This is a great album – my first thought was, “perfect music for mutual slideshows!”, and my next thought was, “some of these songs are so beautiful they are making me cry.” For example, go here and listen to track 6 – “I feel My Savior’s Love”. Such a beautiful rendition. Next listen to track 9 – “See it in Everyone”, which may be my favorite on the album. So peppy and happy, and I love the message in the lyrics.
I have one album to giveaway, the deadline to enter is Sunday, June 24. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me if you want this album for yourself, or for someone else!
I would LOVE to get this CD!! I have 6 children still at home, 3 are teenagers, and am a leader in Young Women’s. I would say that I would like to have the CD for them, but I love the music as much (I think more than) as they do, so it would be enjoyed by many!!
I’m torn. I think I would like it for me. I’m always looking for new inspirational music to listen to. But, I think it might be great to use during lessons as well.
I love the EFY cds, all of my brothers and sisters had a couple different ones and I miss them now that I am married. I would like to expand my own collection so that my kids have something fun/spiritual to listen to in the car.
I would love to have this album! I loved EFY growing up and I miss getting the new music that comes out.
I would love to have this album as well! It sounds AMAZING!! I honestly would love to have it for myself and my kids but would love to share it with my young women. They have such strong testimonies in our small area and to hear this would surely brighten their day. Thank you for opportunity!
I want the CD for someone else! What a great gift!
I would love it for myself. I am a convert to the Church and never had the blessing of going to EFY. I love to listen to uplifting music and this would be great.
I am a YW president in the UK and have one YW daughter at the moment, but I would use the CD for the girls at church. We don’t have the option of EFY this year, so they would have to travel from England to America to get to go. Such a shame 🙁 I saved up and sent my 2 older daughters to EFY in Provo when they were 16 and they both loved it.)
I would keep it! I love EFY music.
I’d love this album for my whole family!!! Uplifting music isn’t for just one generation, but for everyone!!!
My kids would love this. Pick me 🙂
I would love this CD.. I’ve tried to collect all the EFY CD’s I can get my hands on. The music is always gorgeous and it helps me feel the spirit if I ever feel blue.
I’m really grateful that I was able to attend this conference when I was 17. It was one of the most awesome experiences ever, a huge testimony builder!
Thanks for having the giveaway. Whomever wins, Congrats, but if it’s Me, I will be really excited to share it with others! 😀
I would love the cd. Tim Gates, one of the singers on the cd taught my husband the gospel when he was on his mission here. I would love to give the cd to my husband.
Would love this for my daughter!!!
I would LOVE to have this album for my whole family…and the YW in our ward. I have 1 MiaMaid, 1 Teacher, and 2 Beehives. This would be something good for all of them. Plus, I’m a counselor in YW and have the biggest vehicle, so usually chauffeur to off-site activities (temple trips, camp, stake firesides, etc). This would be a better alternative to the radio for background music while traveling to youth events.
1st – As I am sure you have been told many times, You are so talented and do so well sharing!! Thanks. I use your VTing ideas more than any other.
2nd – Would love this CD…for myself and would share with others. 🙂 My daughter is especially musical and has an appreciation for good music.
3rd – I hope the person that is chosen is the one that will appreciate and get the most use of this cd.
Thanks, again. Connie
That is so funny – I literally just stumbled upon a list of the album last night and thought “Hmmm, I’d love to hear that!” Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
I would keep it for myself! 🙂
Would love to win…
would it be for me or my teens??
Well all of us. We love the EFY cd’s
Pick me pick me…but really…
if you pick me, send it to some one who doens’t have access to EFY
IT is such a testimony builder!
for my kids and for my young women!!
I would use the CD for EVERYONE!! I would use it for me, my family and my YW!!
I LOVE listening to church music all the time!!
I’ve been serving in the YW for some capacity for the last 5 years (since I graduated HS). I LOVE it. I will be extremely sad when my time in there is over. But there aren’t plans to change this anytime soon thankfully. I’m always looking for good music to share with the YW and this would be perfect to add to my collection.
I want this for my daugther. She just got back from EFY and love it. I hope your daughter has a great time.
I would love to have this album for everyone in my home.
I would LOVE this CD for my soon to be 13 year old daughter! Her birthday is June 24th, so it would be a WONDERFUL birthday present for her!
I want this for my little sisters and brother. Or my brother who is on his mission. Or for my 4 year old son (we’re always looking for fun but wholesome music that’s not irritatingly childlike, you know?) or maybe I want it for me to hoard for my very own self. Decisions, decisions.
I would give this CD to a youth member of my ward. Music can invite or dispel the Spirit so quickly.
Im YW pres and would looooove a copy of this!! My girls are all at EFY this week and I am SO excited to hear all about it from them! Xoxo
My almost 13 year old daughter would love this – she can’t wait to go to EFY next year!!!
My kids would LOVE this CD!
I’d love to be able to share this with my Laurels! Thank you for offering this awesome opportunity to some lucky recipient! Whoever receives it will certainly be blessed by it. 🙂 For anyone who doesn’t receive it, please do post a link where we can obtain it. 🙂
My daughter neeeeds this album. She is going to EFY in July and could use a preview! 🙂
I’d love to give this to my niece!
EFY is amazing!!! The music they have is so uplifting for all ages & is great to listen to instead of the radio in the car. I would love this album to share with all my family!!!
I would LOVE this CD for my whole family. Everyone would enjoy the music.
I want it for my kids! We are always looking for good uplifting music for our munchkins.
I would definitely keep this for me. I’ve always adored EFY music. My brother first came home with a CD when I was about 10 and I feel they’ve been a part of my spiritual upbringing.
Now that I have the opportunity to teach YW I would love to share it with them through lessons and mutual.
I love EFY music… and I want one! Even though I’m attending EFY the day after… it’ll make a great gift to my sister who can’t go this year.
What a great opportunity! My 15 year old daughter is leaving this weekend to attend her very first EFY. She is so excited to go to Provo with her best friend and spend a week making lifetime memories. She actually saved her babysitting money and was able to pay for half of her registration. I would love to give her this CD! Thanks for the offer!!
I loved EFY! This would be great for the whole family…especially my two oldest boys 14 and 12…Thanks for your fun inspiring website.
I just got called as the YW president in our ward! This would be SO perfect, I’d keep the album for myself and use it to inspire the sweet young women in my ward! 🙂
I’m a newbie here and have never been to EFY? I would like the music to bring the spirit to my home and to share with my family.
If I won it I would give it to my daughter. She is turning 12 next month and she has a passion for music.
Being a new Young Womens president, I could use all the help I can get! I’m always looking for great music to help bring the Spirit into our meetings. Thanks for doing a give away.
I would love this for my seminary class. Great prelude music. Thanks
Hm. Would love it for myself and someone else! Wonder if I can cut it in half…
I would keep this album and use it for my Seminary classes. I LOOOOOVE EFY CD’s.
I would love to have this for a gift to my 15 year old daughter who attended EFY for the first time this year. She had a blast just as everyone told me she would. I would also love to have it to listen to in our car. I have younger kids who would enjoy this as well:-)
A good friend of mine is blind. He looooves the EFY music! I’d love to be able to give this to him!
I would love it!
I would LOVE this for myself!! However, I think if I won the CD, I would give it to my wonderful mother. She listens to nothing but CDs. She collects EFY CDs like nobody’s business! My father is also now the stake patriarch and he always has my mother’s CDs playing during the day and even up until guests come so the spirit comes and stays in the home.
I would love to give this to my girls, 15 & 17. They love music and this would be inspiring for them. Thanks!
i would love to share this with my 16 year old sister. Thanks!
I get to go into Young Women’s this fall and would totally love to have this CD.
I would LOVE this CD. I love all the EFY CD’s. So inspiring!
I would love this Cd!
I would give it to my daughter, who also will be going to her first year at EFY. She is so excited! I can’t wait for her to go, she’s going to have a great experience.
My husband was just called last weekend to be Bishop! I think he could listen to this in his car and get in tune with the youth and get them excited about EFY!!!!
LOVE EFY! And LOVE EFY music!!! I would listen to this all. the. time. with my children in the car. I think this would influence them to make good choices. Thank you!
I would love this for myself and my family for Sunday listening. I too attended EFY and miss being able to go at times. Such a fun experience! Can’t wait for my daughters to be old enough to go!
I would keep this CD, but of course use it for my sweet kids (ages 3 & 1) who love music and for my YW. We’re trying to improve our reverence, especially during opening exercises, and we’re finding the best way to bring the Spirit is definitely through music. This would be a great addition for us all! Thanks for the giveaway and all your creative ideas!
I would either keep it for myself – I went to EFY 5 summers as a teen and was a counselor 1 summer as a young adult – or I would give it to my teenage brother and sister.
We would love to have this album….our kids range in age from 21 down to 11, so everyone would benefit! Thanks for the opportunity:).
I would love to have an EFY album. Here, in Argentina, is very dificult to get it..
That music is always inspiring no matter the place, the day or the moment you listen to..
For family, for young or even for adults.. good music always help to keep good thougths. 🙂 Thanks for this oportunity to get some good music.
