One of my fondest memories of growing up was hearing my mom singing worship throughout the house.
She had been a worship leader since she was a teenager, so worship permeated every area of her life and it naturally crossed over into our home.
My mom always lead by example with the importance of a life of worship.
Music became an integral part of my life as a teenager, it lead me to become a worship leader, and later on develop music programs/camps for churches in Oklahoma.
It is one of the most rewarding experiences to see children develop a passion and love for worshiping God.
God created us for relationship, one aspect of that relationship is showing how much we love God through worship.
If we take a moment to think about it worship is the focal point of church services across the world; however, sometimes I feel the worship experience is not emphasized in children’s ministry or with our own children.
I believe that it should be just as important.
In the church, I beleive it is important to use relevant worship resources that minister to kids, such as Yancy Not Nancy, JumpStart3 and Uncle Charlie.
At home, I believe it is turning off the news or sports radio when we are in the car with the kids and listening to worship.
God desires for you and I to spend time with Him.
Take a few moments today and spend it with Him!
