God’s commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up (Deuteronomy 6:6-7). In the spirit of this verse, we want to encourage each family to be deeply ROOTED in God’s Word not just at Church and Bible class, but also to be ROOTED at Home. Being ROOTED at Home with your family is very important and the most powerful way to teach children about God. Please explore these friendly resources to help your entire family grow in God.

Seeds Family Worship and Randall Goodgame’s Slugs & Bugs albums are Bible verses set to songs. We recommend these albums as a powerful and joyful way for your children to plant God’s Words in their hearts and minds. Check out their websites if you are interested.
