Christ-Centered Music For Kids
I am always looking for awesome Christian music for kids. People who know me are aware that one of my biggest passions is to have my kids walk with God. I didn’t want them to be religious or think Christianity has a book of rules like so many do in today’s culture. I wanted them to experience the true life of Christ living in them, walking in a relationship with Jesus, and being filled with the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that we should abide in Him, and He would abide in us and we would bear fruit.
I love great Christ-centered music for kids! We are able to sing, dance, and have fun around God’s Word and truth with music. Thanks to great music from Seeds Family Worship, Yancy, Ellie Holcomb, and many others, we are equipped and enabled to learn scripture and sing the truth.
Memorizing Scripture With My Kids
This will sound like a brag, so forgive me… but today all three of my kids know over 100 scriptures. Honestly, we didn’t really try either, we just listened to Seeds Family Worship in the background of life for over the last 16 years. Often when my daughter and I hike, we play a game where we say scripture back and forth to each other until one of us can no longer come up with a new one. (Really, we sing them to each other because we often can’t say them.)
Also, it was music by Yancy over 10 years ago with the song “Paid In Full” that my kids really connected with what Jesus did on the cross for them. That they were bought, the price was high and Jesus willingly paid it.
God has used music to impact my kids in a big way. All three of our kids are passionate about Jesus and serving Him today. Now, we talk about being finishers and walking with God from this life to the next. Music is still encouraging us on a journey as we walk with Him.
