Often times the words from various hymns are from the Bible or summarize a Biblical thought/message. By singing and often times, memorizing, the words our children have another way to remember God's Word.
Personally, I cannot sing on key or clap on beat. Therefore, I rely on CDs, a hymnal, a musically gifted daughter, and these great books by Bobbie Wolgemuth and Joni Eareckson Tada:
- Hymns for a Kid's Heart, Volume One
- Hymns for a Kid's Heart, Volume Two
- Christmas Carols for a Kid's Heart
There is also another volume called Passion Hymns for a Kid's Heart, which we do not own, yet.
