Imagine you are in the front seat of my mini-van and I ask you to look over your shoulder at the 2-year-old in the back row. As you’d turn you would see a curly haired, brown-eyed, little girl belting out the Great Commission! This is not a one time deal, it is every time we get in the car. Our little Zoë makes her request, “Put on make disiciples..” She not only has memorized the verses but she is enjoying it!
How did this happen? One word: Seeds.
If you have not heard of the Seeds project then you need to. Seeds is a group that puts Scripture to catchy, fun music for kids. The songs engage them and teach them the Scriptures. There are several albums based upon various themes in Scripture and all done really, really well.
Seeds has enhanced our driving and our devotions by teaching the kids the Scriptures. They sing along in the car and do solos in the house. Can you imagine the joy of looking in the rear-view mirror and watching your baby girl’s lips mouth the words to Phil. 4.6-7? It is awesome. If you are a parent, brother, sister, grandparent, uncle, aunt, cousin, or friend of kids then you need to give this a look. I can honestly say it has been a great blessing to our family. This may not be the only way to get your kids to memorize the Bible but it is definitely a way, and a very effective way at that.
