Nashville-based kids ministry Seeds Family Worship grew out of a request for worship leader and this release's chief writer Jason Houser to compose songs to help children remember Bible verses from his church's summer school. Since then, a number of 'Seeds Of' releases have sprouted and this particular one sees Houser and his talented team deliver an album of highly memorable songs that quote directly from the Bible. The likes of the opener "Call To Me", "Do Not Be Anxious" and "Convinced" promote the essential biblical principles of seeking God, trust and victory in Christ within the context of well-crafted songs whilst tracks like "The Good Song" and "Crushed" are immense fun and reflect the fact that learning Scripture can actually be enjoyable. Uniquely, the names of the featured passages are shouted out during the songs to help cement the location of each Scripture in the mind of the listener and this, combined with the quality of material on offer here, means that this release will prove to be a valuable tool in helping youngsters grow spiritually. A duplicate disc is generously included to allow the purchaser to pass the word of God on to others.

We’ve taken inspiration from God’s perfect plan for seeds dispersal and designed packaging intended to facilitate the spreading of Seeds. Each package of Seeds of Worship includes two identical full-length CDs.
So simply tear the CD cover in half and share a complete packaged album with a friend nearby or far away. You get to take part in spreading Seeds--helping take God’s Word to as many homes as possible.
Both parents and kids will love the music. The lyrics are God’s own Word, straight from the NIV. It’s the perfect way to sing, dance, and make a joyful noise unto the Lord, while planting His Word forever in your heart and mind. It’s a Scripture-memory tool -- It’s a CD full of fabulous music. It’s both! Seeds combines songs that use Scripture for lyrics with strongly produced music that is varied in style to create a sound the whole family will love. Each song helps a child (and any adults in the vicinity) memorize one or more Bible verses from the NIV.
This world can be a scary place, especially when you’re growing up and learning about it all. The songs on Seeds of Courage bring verses of hope, confidence, and security that allow the child of God to be strong, bold, and courageous.
