With this song you are going to discover a FUN, effective way to hep your child experience God's love through His Word put to music
I am so glad to hear Tent Time is going so well. I knew that it would if people would only look at your products. We have been singing along with the DVD watching you, even though the kids were sick with a little fever. Dancing along with Miss Linda, you wouldn't know they felt badly. You are a blessing to our family and I pray that your work goes all over the world. Love you much - Patti
Patti's Comments about a new scripture song to be released soon:
I love the words and the Holy Spirit behind those words. I've had my phone to my ear this morning, just listening and thinking about how powerful that verse is and how many children will get it in their spirits through God using this song as a conduit of His love.
I love to play your Children's CD when I keep my granddaughter. I call it Sophie's CD, she is so attentive when I play it. It makes her laugh and smile. We especially love the ones like Twenty-Four Seven which helps with learning numbers and the days of the week. Also The Fruit of the Spirit. I find myself on other days singing this. One more we dance and sing to is A Very Special Promise (Jer. 33:3). Actually the whole CD is a very good and a fun way to get God's Word into the minds of our infants and small children, and what better way than with music! Hope you produce many more like this. In His Name, Reba
Oh, Linda, Noah is singing your song "Great Big God With a Still Small Voice" in his bed right now! My heart is melting! When he stopped singing I knew he was asleep. Trust me, it blesses my heart when I hear him singing your songs. Especially since he hardly ever sings. It seems like he only sings YOUR songs!! - Gretchen in Atlanta
Linda's ministry to children, and worship with children have been a tremendous impact on this upcoming generation of young worshippers. Her music is flowing from the Father's heart and it touches their lives. It writes God's Words on their hearts. I have used her songs in Sunday Children's Worship (ages 3-7), in Kid's Music Classes (ages 1-5) as well as in Preschool Chapel. Over and over again, I find that the songs Linda wrote are very easily connecting with the children's hearts. Due to the song's simple tunes and melodies, choice of words to express childlike understanding of the Father's love, that also invite the children to accompany each song with motions, they have been my "go to songs" whenever I work with pre-school age children. – Sandra
I have had the privilege of participating with 3 and 4 year old children during Tent Time activities. I was amazed at the automatic connection they had with the teachings. They listened to a story about hearing God's voice, learned a song with motions (that they still enjoy singing) and then drew pictures. Tent Time helps children get "in touch" with God at a young age. They also learn that God cares about the children and you don't have to be an adult to hear from God. - Robyn
