About

Can we build character in 45 days? Join us in this challenge!

NEW ADDITION: ALL BACKERS REGISTERED TO WIN iPAD IF WE REACH OUR GOAL.

Seeds Family Worship was born as a result of seeing good music help families connect to scripture from the Bible. After 5 albums, families all over the world have nearly 60 portions of scripture memorized, enjoy great music, and have better family times thanks to Seeds. It's time to add to this with a 6th album--Seeds of Character.

Each Seeds CD focuses on a specific topic (courage, faith, praise, purpose, and encouragement), using scripture to encourage families to understand what the Bible says about each. This album will focus on scriptures that highlight the character of Christ--encouraging families to focus on developing the character we see exemplified through Christ in scripture. This is better than any man-made definition of good character.

Seeds founder Jason Houser is busily writing songs for the album. These songs will soon be finished, and it will be time to get into the studio and record.

Here's where you come in. . .

We've always believed that families deserve to have music with high production value--it's the reason parents admit to listening to Seeds even when their kids aren't around. To create this high-quality production Jason pulls together some of the best talent in the music industry to create each CD. Past CDs have included. . .

High quality songwriting (founder Jason Houser is a Grammy-nominated songwriter), incredible musicians--Ken Lewis (drums for Ben Folds, Vince Gill, Carly Simon, Chris Rice), Elliott Park (writer of "I Loved Her First"), Don Poythress (writer of hits by Tim McGraw & Clint Black), and Rodney Clawson (writer of hits by George Strait, Faith Hill) to name a few--and great production quality from engineer David Hall (worked with Etta James to Kenny Chesney to Fall Out Boy).

This quality does require a more expensive production than typical synthesizer-driven albums for families. We will raise the funds needed to record and manufacture this album by inviting you to buy the CDs in advance and enjoy the process of creating with us. As always, the CD will include our signature buy one/give one packaging--providing you two identical CDs with every purchase.

Why you should be involved. . .

  • it makes a new Seeds album ready to release this year
  • it provides a good reminder for all of us to pray about how the scripture sung on this album will be used in the lives of families around the world
  • it creates a fun way for your family to watch the behind-the-scenes process of making the album
  • it lets us all know that while we plant and water this album, God is the one making it possible (grow)

It makes us happy to think about what we can all do together and how the songs on this album will be used to plant God's Word in the hearts of families. So, let's take 45 days to make it possible to create this album together. Let's go build some character!
