Kids love the country swing of "Walkin' and Singin'" by Mary Rice Hopkins which accompanies these words:  "Well, I was paralyzed from head to toe. I couldn't move, and I couldn't go.  But my friends would not stop 'til they got me to the top..."

The chorus continues with praise from the man whom Jesus healed:  "I'm walkin' and singin', praisin' His name.
Jesus is my Savior and I'll never be the same."

"Walkin' and Singin'" is from Miracle Mud album which may be ordered HERE.

BABBLING ON - Song to Accompany Tower of Babel Bible Story

Brick by brick stone by stone
They tried to do it all on their own
But God said, “No”
And sent them babbling on.

The tower of Babel was a manmade tower
They tried to build it with manmade power
But God said, “No”
And sent them babbling on.

On their own strength they built it high
To touch the heavens and stars in the sky
But God said, “No”
And sent them babbling on.

Kids love the ragtime feel of this song which is based on Genesis 11:1-9!  The chorus challenges boys and girls to build their lives on God’s plan and follows His ways.

IN THE BEGINNING - Music to Correlate with Creation Lessons (Genesis)

God of Creation
God Knows What's Best
I Can Obey
I Saw Esau
Raising Cain
Oh What A Variety
Babbling On (Tower of Babel)


Kids love the classic rock feel to this song which teaches what God says He will do – His promises are true!  The song begins:
Abraham was a righteous man,
Told by God to leave his homeland.
God said, "Oh, ya gotta go;
Go to Canaan and you will know."
A leap of faith, he kept on track
He obeyed and he didn't look back.

God said, "Take all ya got,"
Even took his nephew, Lot.
Sarah came, his lovely wife;
All he owned, he took that night.
He took his sheep and his cattle, too.
God said, "Abe, I will bless you."

The easiest way for kids to learn the books of the Bible is through song.

Here's a clip of "Books of the Bible" by Mary Rice Hopkins (Workmanship album).


God wants us to watch what we say.

Preparation:  Place in a Surprise Bag a can of whipped cream with spray nozzle; a  large plate; and a white plastic spoon for each child.

Object Lesson:  (Choose two children to come and take the two large items from the box.  Ask the boys and girls to line up and, one at a time, take a spoon from the box.  The children should then stand in a semi-circle around your object lesson table.)  Have you ever said something mean or unkind to someone?  (Start spraying cream on the plate as you talk.)  Let’s pretend these are mean or unkind words which you all have said sometime to others.  Now you regret what you said and you want to take the words back.  I would like you each to fill your spoon with cream and put it back into the can.  We will be pretending to take back our words.  (Give them opportunity to try and put the cream back in the can.)  Just as this cream won’t go back in the can once it’s been sprayed out, we can’t take back words once they are out of our mouths.  We need to be careful what we say because words can really hurt. The Bible says: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”  If we want others to speak kind words to us, we need to speak kind words to others.  If we don’t want others to hurt us by what they say, we should not say things which will hurt other people.

Song:  “Zip It Up” from Mary Rice Hopkins & Puppets with a Heart DVD.  One verse of the song says: 

Little bitty tongue is just one part
But words show more what’s inside the heart
So Zip it up, you gotta zip it up
Well you got two eyes, you got two ears
But only one mouth
So look in the mirror
Ya gotta zip it up, you gotta zip it up
