This recording was created for families to share songs of the Christian faith in a natural, every-day kind of way. The variety of music, lyrics, prayers, and poems weave a soundtrack to live by - "All Day Long"! Parents and grandparents, enjoy these songs with your child as you honor your role as faith mentor.
These songs and prayers were chosen because:
- Children appreciate the beautiful, simple, common, and sacred.
- Songs of faith and hymns children learn in childhood lead them to lives of service and discipleship.
- Children remember particularly what they learn through music and poetry.
- The songs can be enjoyed by all generations together.
- Young children love to listen to and sing with their special adults.
Here are some ways to use this recording:
- Sing along or listen to them at home, in the car, with family and friends.
- Play the recordings at the four parts of the day: morning, mid-day, evening/suppertime, and night/bedtime.
- As you and your child get to know the pieces, sing or say them as they occur to you during the day.
- Create your own prayers and songs with your child.
- Include the calming-down pieces in your child's (or your) bedtime routine.
- Encourage the use of these recordings at events in your congregation: church school classes, children's choirs, all-church events.
