G...H...I.

I is for Instruments. Whether your personal preference in music is jazz, classical, pop, or country, there is no denying that life would unbearable without musical instruments.  Instruments are voices of expression that require skill to communicate.  It used to be that all children learned at least one instrument at some point in their childhood; but not so today.  Many of today's children are missing out on the discipline and enjoyment of learning an instrument.  Don't you look back and wish you knew how to play the piano, or the sax, or maybe the celtic flute?  Let's encourage that side of creativity in our kids.

H is for Hide.

"I have hidden Your word in my heart, that I might not sin against You." (Psalm 119:11)

The New American Translation uses the word "treasured" instead of hidden, so you see the idea: value, cherish, treasure, meditate on the word of God so that it may be embedded in your heart and serve as the reservoir from which your soul drinks. All the sins we yearn to guard our kids against have little to latch on to when the word of God is alive in our children.

G is for Glory.

Introduce your kids to the glory of God, visibly seen in majestic mountains, audibly heard in a symphony, tangibly felt in a loving embrace.
