Not many people can keep me awake until 2 am talking, but my brother-in-law Lyle Stutzman and his wife Maria are an exception. Maria is my husband’s sister, and I’m so pleased to call these people my family, and even more than that, some of my best friends.
After all, that middle-of-the-night talk was deeply spiritual, the sort that can only happen between four people knit closely in heart. Yet Lyle and Maria are also funny and earthy, and Lyle loves to whip up something delicious in the kitchen for us to munch while we chat.
Lyle is a musician, and just launched a new website of his compositions, Blue Sky Music. Lyle is one of those rare professionals who is highly skilled but also very accessible, and he writes music that accommodates a broad range of skill.
Lyle’s music career is about much more than putting bread on the table. Lyle and Maria’s family is devoted to Kingdom living like few others I know. You can read their story here.
Blue Sky Music is the online home for choral compositions and arrangements by Lyle Stutzman. It exists to glorify God by offering quality sacred choral music that is accessible, effective, and sometimes just downright fun. The website allows users to listen to and preview every song, purchase and instantly download sheet music, and freely download sound files to help singers learn their music.
Now here is the fun part. Blue Sky Music is too good to be kept a secret, so I am doing a giveaway. I know I’m shamelessly promoting a business here, and I don’t do much of that, but I really believe in these people and what they have to offer the world.
They have agreed to give away a free Tapestry Arise CD. This is a CD of original Anabaptist compositions, beautifully done.
I know some of you are going to say, “But I never win anything!” I have news for you. In addition to the Tapestry Arise CD, I am giving away TWO $10 gift cards to Starbucks. That means you have three chances to win something!
To enter the giveaway, you need to do one of three things.
- Go to Blue Sky Music’s shop, listen to several pieces, and tell me which one you like best.
- Like, comment on, or share Blue Sky Music’s Facebook page.
- If you know Lyle, tell me something you like about him. If you don’t know him, tell me something that catches your interest from reading their family’s story.
I have no way of knowing that you’ve done one of these things unless you comment here or on my Facebook page. Please comment, and you will be entered in the fun!
Giveaway will close Tuesday evening, Sept 5, at 11:59 pm.
