As a busy working mom, with so many tasks, responsibilities, projects and ideas swirling around in my head on any given day, memorizing scripture is difficult for me.
Memorizing much of anything has never been my strong suit but since I’m committed to planting God’s truths in my heart and in the hearts of my children, finding a way to keep God’s word front and center in our lives is so important.
Did you know our brains are wired to remember words set to music better than just text on a page?
The Wall Street Journal explains in an article describing brain function that “information set to music is among the easiest to remember.” If you think about it, one of the first things we teach our young children is their alphabet with the A-B-C song.
If you followed along with my Parenting with Purpose series last year you’ll remember my love for scripture set to music, (including ways to get it for free). While memorizing really is tough for me, when scripture is set to music word-for-word, it’s so much easier to recall it when I need it most.
In our home, Seeds Family Worship is a definite favorite! There is nothing that compares with hearing your kids in the backseat of the van singing “The Word of God is living and active” and “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers!”
Seeds Family Worship is celebrating the launch of their brand new website and THIS WEEK ONLY they are offering a FREE download of the entire Seeds of Courage album. That’s 12 songs straight from scripture.
My personal favorite (and one I need to listen to OFTEN) is #2, Do Not Be Anxious (Philippians 4:6-7), because really, don’t we ALL need this reminder?
So…what are you waiting for? Go grab your free Seeds Family Worship album. I promise it’s music both you and your kids will love!
P.S. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the new Seeds Family Worship page. You’ll see this green bar at the bottom – enter your email and you’ll get the free download!

I am thinking “Do Not Be Anxious” is the song for me too. I was just reading those verses from Philippians. Thanks for joining me in my brave journey and glad to see you here in between.
We have several of the Seeds Worship CDs and my kids LOVE THEM! I originally thought they were going to be lame…and wouldn’t you know that it only took me 30 seconds before I was singing along. I think the Seeds Worship CDs are excellent and very well done!
