Music For Kids - Part 2

Here is the second of a three-part post about some of the music that we have discovered and introduced to the boys this past year.  Last fall our small group from church focused on how to guard a child's heart and mind while raising them in today's society.  We studied the book Guarding Your Child's Heart by Dr. Gary Smalley.  It explains how important Scripture memory and meditation is to our everyday life and encourages parents to get the Bible into your child's heart as early as possible.

One of the easiest things we have done to begin planting positive seeds into J and L is through music.  We found some really great music that the boys love and so do we!  Not nursery rhymes or the kind of songs that will drive you crazy after just a few seconds - really good modern music that makes Jesus and the Bible cool.  This week we are sharing music that your kids are sure to love.  The last post introduced you to The Rizers, and today we want to share our newest discovery - Go Fish.


Their tagline is "great music for kids that won't drive their parents bonkers!"  Leaving a promising career in Christian pop music behind, they have been making music exclusively for kids since 2003.  Their new audience might be smaller in stature, but not in numbers. They found that good news—and good music—travels fast, especially with moms.  Go Fish's latest release, Kickin' It Old School, passes foundational songs down to the next generation.  Many of today's kids have never seen a hymnal, so this project was created to introduce them to these classic songs.  While the music is great, Go Fish also created Vacation Bible School curriculum to encourage kids to get into the Bible.  Here is a list of their releases:
