If you or your family are facing challenging times. Music can be a helpful antidote for your entire family during times of crisis. Prevention magazine reports that clinical studies and anecdotal evidence from music therapists suggest that the sound of music:
• Can manage pain
• Can reduce the need for sedatives and pain relievers during and after surgery
• Can decreases nausea during chemotherapy
• Can relieve anxiety
• Can ease depression
When our young son Tyrell was suffering from his terminal illness there were very few things that calmed him. Yet, one thing that almost always worked was music. I describe more about our times singing together in one of the chapters in the Baby Steps book.Our times together proved to me that music is a great gift with phenomenal power.
I want to encourage you to find a song, an anthem if you will, that calms and encourages you.
