Teach Your Children Well
I am often asked what tools our family uses to memorize Scripture and keep it in our minds and hearts. From childhood, my parents instilled in me a love for and a desire to memorize the Word. But it wasn't always easy to commit long passages to memory. Mom and Dad came up with many helpful tools (hand motions, stick drawings, etc.), but the most effective, by far, was singing Scripture set to music. I can still remember all the words to "I am crucified with Christ" (Galatians 2:20) and "This is the day the Lord has made" (Psalm 118:24), among many others.
With seven children of my own now, I've actively sought out sing-along Scripture songs to help us memorize together. We've enjoyed "Sing the Word" and Wee Sing, but I've also looked for CDs that include longer passages of Scripture that are enjoyable and singable for all ages (not just those aimed at the pre-school set). Judy Rogers has long been a perennial favorite in our household, particularly for her CDs celebrating the Ten Commandments and the Psalms. But you can never have enough Scripture songs filling your house, in my opinion, so I'm very glad every time I find a new one that is excellent and helps us place God's Word in our hearts.
Kelly Crawford has produced just such a CD, setting KJV Scripture to music word-for-word. The melodies are lyrical and refreshing, and, after a few listens, we found ourselves singing along. To learn the lyrics, all you need is an open Bible! Included on this CD are Psalms including 34:1-9, 61:1-2, 127:3-5, and five more. Kelly has also set Philippians 4:6-8 to music and included an original song, "I Will Trust in You," which is dedicated to her late mother-in-law.
We've known Kelly for many years, and her family is a beautiful testimony to Kelly's dedication to the Word and her love for Christ. This shines through on
Lead Me to the Rock. Kelly is a capable and dedicated mother at home who helps her husband in all of his endeavors and runs a home business with her children (featured on LAF in the past). She is also one of the most feminine, soft-spoken, and kind women I've ever met, graciously standing for the truth with an iron will that does not waver. I am blessed to know her and can heartily recommend anything her family produces; she lives what she preaches!
