What resources would you recommend to encourage your kids to know and love the Bible?
I’m asked this question often.
And I understand why.
More than almost anything, I want our family to be grounded in their faith—and that means being grounded in the Bible too.
Because I’m convinced that no matter what the future holds, they will be well-equipped if they have the Word of God on their minds and hidden in their hearts.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105)
Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. (Prov. 30:5)
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2)
As a family, we’ve tried a variety of ways to encourage our children to know and love the Bible:
- We’ve often had family devotions where my husband reads aloud to them from Scripture.
- When the kids were younger, we encouraged them to write one or two verses a day from the book of Proverbs in their own handwriting in their own notebooks (our oldest son, now 26, said he figures he’s written the entire book of Proverbs out 4 or 5 times and he’s so glad he did!).
- We memorized a number of key verses and passage of the Bible together as a family.
But today, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite resources for encouraging, inspiring, and helping your family to enjoy and know the Word of God.
I want to introduce you to Seeds Family Worship!
What I love about Seeds Family Worship is how they’ve created Scripture memory songs by setting verses from the Bible to music—making it so easy and enjoyable to learn! Both their songs and videos are written to word-for-word Scripture, so how cool is that?
5 Ways Seeds Family Worship Can Encourage Your Family to Know and Love the Bible
1. These songs are an amazing tool to hide God’s Word in their hearts (and mine too)!
These Bible songs are such a fun way to learn Scripture. You literally can’t help but memorize the words as you listen to the upbeat, catchy music!
2. The songs lead to wonderful conversations about God and His Word.
Whether you have the music on in the house as you go along your day, or maybe listen as you’re in the car together, these songs make terrific conversation-starters about what God says in His Word.
3. The songs make discipleship both easy and natural.
As you talk with your kids about the songs and what they’re learning, it becomes a simple but powerful discipleship opportunity.
4. The DVDs include hand motions, which add an extra element of fun.
Stuck at home? Find your kids are bubbling with (a little too much) energy? Get their hands and bodies moving with the fun motions demonstrated on the DVDs. Bonus: this is another strong way to cement lasting memorization!
5. The songs are a great way to start the day and set our minds on God’s Word.
Over the years, I’ve found over and over again how much it matters how we start the day. As the mom, I have this incredible opportunity to “set the tone” for our family, as well as set the example of where our hearts and minds should be focused. What better way to begin than with the Word of God!
What Do Other Families Say About Seeds Family Worship?
★★★★★ “Awesome car time conversations” by Joanna
We got this cd and DVD two weeks ago, and all four of my boys have the songs memorized. The music is so good, and each song leads to awesome car time conversations about what the verse means. Throughout the day, the Holy Spirit speaks to each of us applying the verses to our everyday situations. It makes discipleship so easy!
★★★★★ “LOVE IT!” by Joy
I got this through the quarterly family discipleship box and we love it! Every song on the DVD has hand motions that my kids love! The cd is great to have to listen to in the car too. LOVE IT!
★★★★★ “Our kids can’t get enough” by Noele
Our kids can’t get enough of the songs and love to sing along with the hand motions too! It’s a great way to energize them for the day and set their mind on God’s Word. It’s an amazing tool to hide God’s word in their hearts. I find myself memorizing Scripture too!
