Finding Fearless

I teach in a rough neighborhood where the kids are the most vulnerable and defensive students I’ve ever had. My school has kids graduate 6th moving onto a school with 7th-12th graders in one building. This does NOT help that self-preservation mechanism they have-to help yourself at any cost (even if it will hurt others). Read More…

Monkey assist

My tween daughter was going crazy in her new school. BIG drama, which tends to be her style. But then, lo and behold she started running around the house singing your Monkey song–now she seems better. I think it calmed her way down.

Peaceful Passing

My teenage daughter found your song on the internet and recorded herself singing it for her grandfather. During the past week in hospice with him, we played the song over and over. It was the last recorded song he heard. Each time it brought him peace and seemed to give him strength to step forward Read More…

Teens in a car

I was driving around town with my friends and this awesome song comes on. Everyone starts singing along and I’m thinking… “Wait a minute, I KNOW this song! I LOVE this song!” Turns out Fearless has found it’s way to the other HS and all my friends there know it too! Oh, and it turns Read More…


So my mom’s like, “Listen to these songs. You’ll love them!” and I’m like, “Duh, mom. I only listen to stuff I know that everybody knows that’s new.” But then I started listening anyway, and it was strange. I ended up loving these songs SO much, now they’re the only songs I wanna listen to. Read More…


I was supposed to pick someone for my big “hero” project at middle school. All the other kids in my class picked relatives, but I picked Lessia Bonn and her songs because the songs changed my way of seeing the world. I figure that’s pretty hero-worthy!


I don’t know how she does it, but she has this knack of knowing EXACTLY how we’re all feeling about life … then she just puts all that feeling into a song. Makes me teary just to think about how she can do that. It’s awesome to be understood.

Rock star

My students all LOVE your songs. You have become a rock star in our classroom! Thanks so much for creating these great resources to help us build the kind of people we want to inhabit our world! 

Love for Enough

I teach MS choir in a high poverty city close to near Detroit. I don’t have any money or music budget to purchase music and so it’s really hard to find songs that students like. I teach one class with severely cognitively impaired students- I was going to make it a general music class, but Read More…

MS Appreciation

As a middle school teacher, I really appreciate your music and lesson plans. The depth contained in your material well prepares students for the social studies lessons we present to them later on. What you are up to is so wonderful and needed! It’s also truly original and inspiring. There’s nothing else like it.
