What are people saying about this book?

"What a neat idea! With 150 little psalms in song, it is an excellent source of new songs to praise the Lord using God's Word. Throughout my years of homeschooling my children and teaching music, I have been amazed at how quickly a child can learn material when you put it to music and sing it aloud. This book is a creative way for a person of any age to learn Biblical principles in an easy and fun way."

-homeschooling mom & piano teacher

"The 29 ways to use the book will be very helpful to the busy teacher who desires to incorporate more scripture and thus content into his or her teaching. I'm excited to give it to my teachers (and grandkids)!"

-Sunday School superintendent

"We try to teach our youth to more than just read the words of God, but to make them come from their hearts, to meditate on them, and let their souls cry them to God. Whether your church is traditional or contemporary, this book will be a useful tool for creative and meaningful worship."

-youth pastor
