My Replacement

My daughter stole my song.... ok we she didn't exactly steal it, I gave it to her a week ago and we've been practicing non-stop! But really who would've thought I'd be replaced so young :-) Last night we laid down some vocal tracks on some of the songs Chris and I wrote for the upcoming Treasure the Word 2 CD. A scripture based CD put to music for our children's ministry and church. This year all of the scriptures came from the book of Ephesians. It was a lot of fun! I was so proud of Taylor. She hung in there and did really great... for being five. There are some definite authentic five year old things in there :-) The CD will end with her singing this lullaby like song.









Here's a small clip of her practicing when we first got there...

I have to say a special thanks to Dale & Megan. Dale is a gifted singer, musician and is mixing and recording the entire cd at his home studio. On top of all of that they are about to have their first child in 2 WEEKS! They have given countless hours and will continue with those hours over the next few months of mixing. Thank you both for your hospitality last night and the way you have sacrificially served our church! And boy do I have a new founded respect for how far you drive to attend our church! You would never know based on your commitment!

Look for the CD you Sovereign Grace Gilbert Church folks in the beginning of December!

How cute! We'd been looking for a good CD with scripture put to song(for my little brother), but hadn't found one we really liked. Any suggestions? We want something with pure scripture. Word for word. No filler.

Sarah-
Well this what you are talking about... no fillers just the esv sung to scripture. I know Hide the Word by Mark Altrogge is really great and we've been listening to Seeds Worship for kids. But that will have the occasional filler.

Awww, that is so cool! For some reason, my computer isn't letting me play the clip, but I can't wait to hear the new CD! Thank you guys so much for serving the church and all our children this way! It is so cool that our kids will grow up having all these verses memorized. Toby knows almost all the songs from the first CD, and sings them all the time. He will be so excited to sing along with "Tay-Tay" when this CD comes out :~)

Where do we get the cd, and the one before it?

Kiki and I love to memorize to music (Love Altrogge's cds), but we just got news that we'll need stuff that's perfect for little kids. :-)
