Music with a Mission

Songs for Saplings

Years ago I was introduced to Songs for Saplings and their music has been a part of our family ever since!  I developed a series of printables to go along with the ABCs CD, and have used these in our home for years! Songs-for-Saplings-Printable-Pack_thumb

Over time I have kept in touch with this awesome ministry and recently they asked if I’d like to do a 50 cent promo on my blog! Because I love the mission of Songs for Saplings, I immediately said yes and hope many of you are able to benefit from this deal!  If you want to jump straight to the deal, scroll down to see how to get one of their CDs for just 50 cents!  To learn more about their ministry and music, read on!

Songs for Saplings seeks to teach deep Biblical truths to children through fun and lively music that both they and their parents will enjoy.

Every mom who has ever heard her three-year-old sing the theme song from Veggie Tales by heart knows that children have an amazing ability to memorize, especially through music. Songs for Saplings “Questions with Answers” series seeks to capitalize on that God-given ability to memorize by presenting solid Bible truths in quality, fun music.

Each song presents a question and answer about our Christian faith. Each song includes a scripture reference along with its verse number so that children know there is a biblical reason for why the answer given.

This model of learning through song works incredibly well with children of all ages here in the United States. Transfer that same model to an oral-based culture, such as is found in Malawi, and the results are astounding! The first volume of “Questions with Answers” God and Creation has been translated into Chichewa, the native language of Malawi with incredible success.

Malawi is a singing culture. Songs can be heard throughout the streets as mothers work and children play. While basic reading is taught in school, comprehension is often lacking. Through song, however, thousands of children in Malawi have quickly learned about how God created all things, including them. They understand, through the scripture presented in these songs, that they were created to glorify Him. Even more exciting, the Chichewa version of “Questions with Answers” is now being taught in the public school system in Malawi!

There are so many places in the world with a real need for solid, biblical materials for children, and the Lord is presenting many opportunities to use Songs for Saplings in some of those areas. Just this year Songs for Saplings hopes to work on translations into Polish, Ukrainian, Spanish, and Russian. That’s on top of the work already underway in French and Chichewa.

When we purchase CDs not only do we get amazing music and Biblical teaching for our own families, we help further the mission of getting the Word all over the world.  The heart behind Songs for Saplings is extremely mission focused, which I just love. The prices are unbelievably reasonable which just proves the mission-mindedness to me.  $5 for a full CD download is almost unheard of these days!  Yet, every CD of theirs can be downloaded on their site here for just $5!

This week only, ALL of my readers can grab a copy of Questions with Answers, Vol. 1: God and Creation for only 50 cents {through 3/24/13}!
