This is what happened almost 2-years-ago-to-the-day.
I was already excited that Jude was coming over to write! We weren't sure what we'd work on, but I knew it would be fun!
I got things set up while she changed from hockey practise. All of a sudden I found myself humming a new, little tune. I thought it sounded like fun, so recorded it quickly to work on at a later time.
Jude came out and we started to work... she took the couch and I took the chair.
We decided to ask God what He'd like us to work on. I thought we'd pull up something that Jude was already writing. As we waited to see what He would say, Jude started humming the line that I had just recorded. I was surprised that she had even heard it as she was in the shower when I popped it onto my computer! We knew, in that moment, that we should press into this.
I had already been looking for a theme song for our local Christian school - Brantford Christian School - and this seemed to fit. We found a fun beat and started hashing out words and melody lines. It felt so great and so silly all at the same time! We laughed until we cried -- well, at least I did. Ha! These pictures tell some of the story.
Aside from being very purposed in teaching Biblical truths, I am convinced that God wants us to know that He has a smile on His face way more than we think He does.
As Jude and I laughed and created, I felt His pleasure.
We will share articles here that might be helpful to all those who lead KiDs - parents, teachers, pastors. We will also talk about the story behind some of the songs.
