This year I started making songs for my kids to help them learn large chunks (not little bits) of scripture. April Snook called it years ago. I knew she was onto something, but it made my heart spin when she spoke to me that my music would never make sense, really, until it was first blessing the people in my own house. Over time, I have come to know what she means. Now that my kids are school age and learning the scriptures is important to us, I have been writing songs to large chunks of scripture. I keep them in my school room, so that you can see them in the context of what I do with them. You can check out that endeavor when you have some time someday, here.
