Our daughter’s graduation

Our daughter just graduated from high school!  The graduation was exquisite as it took place at the Confucius Temple – a site to behold!

I am immensely proud of our daughter as she worked hard to achieve excellence in her studies, sports, music and service.  Over the last two years I have often marveled at how she managed to balance her time with all the different projects and demands.

Daughter of the Kingdom

On her 15th birthday I composed a piece for her titled, ‘Daughter of the Kingdom’.  The words in this prayer are equally significant on this latest milestone.

I remember recording this piece for her in the studio and became very teary as I sang the beautiful prayer from ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.  (I describe the experience of recording this piece for her in another blog post).


The lyrics of the prayer are below…

I look ahead in the next chapter of my life and look forward to serving with my husband and working on my upcoming album in honor of the bicentenary of the Birth of The Báb.
