I first heard of Seeds Family Worship through my friend Erin. They helped sponsor her trip to the Relevant conference this year! I believe it was on her website (I could be wrong) that her readers had the opportunity to download a free song from one of the Seeds CDs. "Cast Your Cares" has been #1 on my playlist for a long time now. It's catchy and biblical.
I wrote to Seeds to see if they would allow me to review one of their CDs. They said yes and I chose the Seeds of Faith (Vol. 2) CD. As you may know by now, Moose has some developmental delays. These delays mostly cater to his speech and enunciation, but he also has a difficult time understanding me sometimes (or so it seems). Being a Christian and teaching my boys about Jesus Christ is #1 on my Mommy Lifetime To Do List. I thought since Moose connects so well with music, a CD that was Scripture-based and family/kid-friendly would be a perfect opportunity to open him more to the Christian life. And Squirt loves to dance so music is always appreciated by him!
I knew the music would be good music. I didn't listen to any of the songs before getting the CD. When we first listened to Seeds of Faith, I was unsure if Moose would like it because the songs are mostly slower tunes. But he has caught on to the tunes quickly and sings them just as easily as he sings the songs on "Daddy's music" (aka Walk the Line soundtrack). He does call this CD "Mommy's music" (which I'm perfectly fine with!). And despite the slower nature of this CD, Squirt pretty much rocks out whenever it's on! Hilarious.
The boys are not the only ones who enjoy this CD. I turn it on while I'm busying myself with dishes or laundry in the kitchen (yes, our laundry is in our kitchen as weird as that is). Big A had it turned up while he cooked the other night. It really is music for the whole family!! I hope to add to our collection soon. -- I almost forgot the best part of the CD. There are TWO CDs - one for your family and one to give to someone else! I haven't given our 2nd CD away (yet) because I can't decide who would enjoy it most. But soon, I promise, it will be given out.
