For years, we have started our school day with the Bible memory verse of the week in song. I play the music a couple of times while we eat and finish morning chores. Well, right now, the kids are memorizing a long(ish) poem instead of a passage of Scripture. This left a gap in our morning routine.
So, I ran through my iTunes and made a playlist of just praise music and hymns. Now that is what we listen to—in fact, it is often on as the kids come out of their rooms until we begin our prayer time.
It has been a real blessing to begin the day in this new way. I have a wide variety of tempos and artists to keep things dynamic, so we might be dancing through our breakfast prep, and then having a deep discussion on the character of God the next. I am so thankful that there are so many ways to sing praises to Him!
