The history behind Beth’s compositions starts with the plaque President Uchtdorf recently put up in the new Church History Museum with his wife Harriet. Beth was inspired by the plaque and wrote her own lyrics to “How Firm a Foundation” and put it up on Facebook. It received such an overwhelming response that Beth has now put out sheet music of her composition.
Beth Shurtleff is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who has a gift in playing the piano. Beth is from California but currently lives in Germany where she composes and teaches music. Beth loves to write her own lyrics to classic hymns and put them to familiar tunes.
