I love good music. The kind that makes my foot tap and my shoulders bounce. Soon my fingers are snapping and I'm joining in the lyrics.
I also believe that Psalm 119:11 rings as true today as it did for shepherd turned King David, "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." The value of scripture memorization is far reaching. Promises like, "Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful." Joshua 1:8
While I have found moderate success memorizing scripture, the task becomes infinitely easier when God's Word is combined with excellent music.
That's what I've come to enjoy most about Seeds Family Worship. They take God's Word (both NIV and, now, ESV) and match it to high quality music that kids and adults find enjoyable and beneficial.
When you visit their website www.seedsfamilyworship.net/media you'll be able to listen to EVERY song they've produced. When you find an album you enjoy (or a tougher task of finding one you DON'T), place your order. When your CD arrives you'll find two in the package. One for you and one to share!
I've used Seeds Family Worship in my Children's Ministry for years. Each month introducing a new memory verse song for my elementary group to absorb. Kids love it, parents love it and I love hearing God's Word on the lips of "my" kids.
