Playing piano from guitar chords

Did you know you can pulse triads/fifths or improvise accompaniments on the piano based on guitar chords? I won't tell you how long it took me to figure that out. It's embarrassing, considering how long I've been playing piano. 

I also won't tell you how long it has taken me, first to make books with lyrics for us as a family and friends that come over to sing together with. Second, more recently (when I figured out this chord thing), books with the chords for the same songs for myself and any other musicians. 

My hope for this school year is to get better at playing with chords (my ultimate dream is to play like @chad_erinpaine ... unlikely I know), for us to sing one or two a night before bedtime (kind of like Pa with his fiddle) and to sing together with friends. 

I printed these out at home, laminated them and hole-punched them at home. They are mostly all hymns and I found a really great site for free chords and how-to-play hymns which is I also love Okee Dokee Brothers and their sites has chords and lyrics for printing out.
