I recently reported on the benefits of car schooling with educational songs. As Christians, our first goal is to help our kids fall in love with Jesus. Music is a fantastic way to do this. It’s even better when it is music your whole family will enjoy.Our goal is to help our kids fall in love with Jesus. Music is a fantastic way to do this. Click To Tweet
Oh sing to the Lord a new song,
for he has done marvelous things!” Psalm 98:1 ESV
Rain for Roots: I reviewed the Rain for Roots after seeing their concert last Christmas. They have a couple other great albums, The Kingdom of Heaven Is Like This and Big Stories for Little Ones that are good for any time of the year. It’s a bit more mellow, so don’t play this when you are looking for energizing driving music.
Seeds Family Worship: Want to memorize scripture? Everything is easier to memorize when you can set it to music. Seeds Family Worship songs sing scripture word for word. If you don’t want to break into song when you hear one of these verses during Bible study, these may not be the albums for you! Try out The Word of God or any of the other Seeds Family Worship albums. We have enjoyed them all!
Rend Collective: We love Rend Collective and our kids do too. The first “real” concert our kids went to was Rend Collective. My daughter wowed those around her with all the motions she had learned at church. As Family We Go is their newest album, but I must say that our favorite is still Campfire. Why don’t more people make happy Christian music like Rend Collective? Jesus makes us happy–or at least hopeful! The fact that we can download chord charts and words to their songs and play them at home makes us happy too!
Slugs and Bugs: We discovered Slugs and Bugs at a Randall Goodgame concert our children’s ministry hosted. There are several of these Slugs and Bugs albums, but our personal favorites are Sing the Bible with Slugs & Bugs Cd and Sing the Bible with Slugs & Bugs: Volume 2. This is a really creative way to memorize the verses and a bit more kid focussed than Seeds Family Worship. I still love it, but I am a kid at heart! The first volume even has a guest appearance by Sally Lloyd Jones, author of The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name.
The Rizers: The Rizers are definitely more kid oriented too, but I still love to listen to them! (I like kids books better than adult books too.) Like Seeds Family Worship and Slugs and Bugs, they sing scripture verses. Check out Rizers Rise Up and Meet The Rizers if you love energetic music.
Yancy: I originally fell in love with Yancy’s preschool music, Little Praise Party My Best Friend and Little Praise Party Happy Day Everyday. Lucky for us, Yancy also has music for a wide array of ages. Roots for the Journey and Jesus Music Box also get rave reviews.
Go Fish: Go Fish music is actually advertised as “Great Music for Kids that Won’t Drive Parents Bonkers!” They have a mix of various genres of music, in addition to their Christian songs. Superstar, Kickin’ It Old School, and Kids Music are enjoyed by kids of all ages.
I hope you have found something new to check out. With multiple titles available from all of these artists, there should be many hours of listening, learning, and worship.
What music does your whole family enjoy?
