Music … it is such a wonderful addition to our world.

Did you know that it actually helps our children develop in something known as musical intelligence?  It gives them a sensitivity to rhythm, pitch, timbre, melody and patterns.   This is so important in learning how to read and develop fluency as readers. (not to mention that music and math often go hand in hand)

For this month’s song, I went to two of my favorite poets from the Bible.  King David and the Prophet Jeremiah were known for their writings and many were set to music.   I encourage you to go on a “treasure hunt” with your kids to Psalm 113, Psalm 16 and Lamentations 3 and see if you can find the lyrics of this song.

In our family, we have found over the years that putting scripture to music has been a wonderful way for our kids to memorize God’s word.
