Songs N' Smiles

A Song Writing Journey

YOUTH
 Knowledge must be preserved. Learning captured in music will always be remembered.


Song Lyrics

MISSISSIPPI RIVER SONG
And the river runs deep, and the river runs long
The mighty Mississippi is very strong It doesn’t go straight but winds through the trees
With rocks in the bottom, In the winter it can freeze.


THE PEOPLE NEED SOME WATER

In Vietnam lives our friend Sun. He’s excited ‘cause the bathroom is done. Since we already have toilets that flush, Bathrooms don’t surprise us too much. Sun drew a picture on a wall,
It could be seen by short and the tall, A person's a person no matter how small.


WHAT THEY SAID:

'For the past 6 years, Ron has been an integral part of the program as he works to mold the arts and science, the children compose a song."
Lynn Pham, Ex. Director, Eastside Children ‘s Program St. Paul, Minnesota

"Songs and Smiles bringsout the heart of a child in all ages."
Penny Meschke, Dir. of Childhood Ministry, All Saints Lutheran Church, Minnetonka, Minnesota   

SENIORS
Memories are important.
Life’s work is an imprint on time. Wisdom and belief must be expressed.
Feelings must be spoken.

Song Lyrics

THINGS WE DID AT WORK

Everybody did something
We all had something to give
We all learned something different
It helped us in how we lived.

SEASONS IN MINNESOTA
Going to the lake
Watching all the birds
We grilled ourselves a steak
Its too good for words.

“Songs and Smiles is a program aimed at the sharing of memories and the creation of new ones. Everyone has a story to tell – Songs and Smiles gives voice to these tales. As the creative process unfolds, the sharing of these many experiences reminds us of the multi-faceted nature of the human family. Empowering and enriching, the workshop has proven its worth for young and old alike.” -Fr. Ron Johnson
