Seeds Family Worship

Today, I wanted to tell you about some of our families favorite music.....

Seeds Family Worship

Each Seeds CD has twelve scriptures set to great music that doesn't make your head hurt.  Let's face it, a lot of kids music is in the same catagory as Barney or the Wiggles for me - annoying! 

The best thing is that my kids are easily memorizing scripture.  Just by singing.  I don't know about you, but I still know all the books of the Bible from learning the song oh so many years ago in Missionettes.  Music is a great tool for learning.....for the kids as well as myself!

If you're interseted in learning more, click the link above or the Amazon link below to see the many different CD's they have available.

A Child's Ten Commandments

A Child's Ten Commandments

1. My hands are small; please don’t expect perfection whenever I make a bed, draw a picture, or throw a ball. My legs are short; please slow down so that I can keep up with you.

2. My eyes have not seen the world as yours have; please let me explore safely: don’t restrict me unnecessarily.

3. Housework will always be there. I’m only little such a short time—please take time to explain things to me about this wonderful world, and do so willingly.

4. My feelings are tender; please be sensitive to my needs; don’t nag me all day long. (You wouldn’t want to be nagged for your inquisitiveness.) Treat me as you would like to be treated.

5. I am a special gift from God; please treasure me as God intended you to do, holding me accountable for my actions, giving me guidelines to live by, and disciplining me in a loving manner.

6. I need your encouragement, but not your praise, to grow. Please go easy on the criticism; remember you can criticize the things I do without criticizing me.

7. Please give me the freedom to make decisions concerning myself. Permit me to fail, so that I can learn from my mistakes. Then someday I’ll be prepared to make the kind of decisions life requires of me.

8. Please don’t do things over for me. Somehow that makes me feel that my efforts didn’t quite measure up to your expectations. I know it’s hard, but please don’t try to compare me with my brother or my sister.

9. Please don’t be afraid to leave for a weekend together. Kids need vacations from parents, just as parents need vacations from kids. Besides, it’s a great way to show us kids that your marriage is very special.

10. Please take me to Sunday school and church regularly, setting a good example for me to follow. I enjoy learning more about God.
