Your little kids are going to love this CD. Your Grand kids will love it, and your friend's little kids will love these songs. They will wear the CD out and you might wish that you never heard of me. Ahh... but the things we do for our kids. As a father of three boys, I sometimes find myself singing these songs, and other kid's music, in the car... only to realize that I'm all alone, oops!
Over the last three years I've been volunteering to lead worship with the 3, 4, and 5 year old kids at Reimage Church in Greenville, NC.
Three years ago, what started as a family obligation has developed into a real blessing to me and the kids. I started bringing my guitar on the Sundays that I was volunteering. I wrote a few songs to correlate with the lesson and was soon approached by the children's director. She asked me to consider doing a praise and worship time every Sunday.
So, I wrote songs that facilitated a few minutes of worship as well as time to introduce a moment of reverence and thankfulness.
I wrote a song called "Jesus we Love You" and noticed that during these quiet times all the kids were singing and some were lifting their hands and making hearts shapes with their hands pointed toward heaven.
Attention spans are short. So, I've also written fun & playful songs that are heaven directed. I've written several songs that really help the kids memorize scripture and/or concepts.
The response locally has been exciting. Parents began requesting that I make CDs for them so a few months ago, I set out to create a CD for the kids in the class. Crudely produced in my laundry room, with the $5 iPad version of Rock Band, I created the basic foundation for the CD and I'm ready to go to the recording studio.
That's where you come in. Pre-selling the CD will give me the cash I need for the recording fees. Plus, it allows me to share this music with other church leaders.
These songs are easy, fun and educational. There are 45 children under the age of six, in Greenville, NC, that have "The Fruit of the Spirit" memorized.
Help me record these songs, and help plant a seed of faith in the heart of a little kid.
Thank you for your support.
