“Whenever I hear the [Primary] music it really fills me with the spirit and as a mom I wanted to teach my kids how to feel the Spirit,” Natasha Johnson said. Now she and her husband have found a way to spread that Spirit and the fun of Primary music to other children through their new app.
For Arizona husband and wife, Blake and Natasha Johnson, working together is second nature as they raise their 5-year-old twins. But the couple, who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, recently combined their talents to work together in creating the LDS Animated app for mobile devices. The app puts well-known Primary songs like “I am a Child of God” and “Love is Spoken Here” to animation, with the lyrics appearing along the bottom.
The app was launched in September and currently features seven different Primary songs, including “I’m Trying to Be Like Jesus” and “I Will Follow God’s Plan.” Each song is animated with different scenes or stories and scrolls through the lyrics in a sing-along style.
