Oh my friends, today is an exciting day!

Today, the blog tour to celebrate the brand new Seeds Family Worship album, Seeds of Character, stops here at Home with the Boys!

Seeds is my FAVORITE way to get the Word of God into the hearts of our family – not just the kids, but the adults too! I have memorized more Scripture through Seeds than any other way!

Seeds of Character is exciting because it sets out to counteract what culture calls “character” and put it in a Biblical perspective – the process of God growing character in us, not us relying on ourselves to get it right. Amen! All of the songs fit into one of these parts of that process:


Jesus is the foundation of character–He is the “Good News.” Our sin is the “Bad News” and makes us dependent upon Christ if we are to develop His character.


Parents provide the bridge–teaching their children the foundations of character and modeling the character of Christ.


The last portion of the album focuses on several key indicators of godly character – love, humility, obedience, honor, and thankfulness.

Check out the verses featured on volume 6:

  1. More Than Conquerors (Romans 8:37)
  2. The Wages and The Gift (Romans 3:23 & 6:23)
  3. The Life (John 14:6, I John 5:11-12)
  4. The Fruit (Galatians 5:16 & 22)
  5. Delight (Psalm 1)
  6. Teach Them (Deuteronomy 6:4-7)
  7. The Perfect Example (John 13:12-17)
  8. Children and Fathers (Ephesians 6:1-4)
  9. Put On Love (Colossians 3:12 & 14a)
  10. The Character Song (Romans 5:1-5)
  11. Give Thanks (Psalm 105:1-5)
  12. The Only Way (The New Testament Song)

Godly character – there is not much more important than that to teach our children.

And speaking of teaching, I am so pleased to share this exclusive video from Seeds founder, Jason Houser, debuting “Teach Them,” the song from Volume 6 based on Deuteronomy 6:4-7. These verses are my life blood as a parent right now…
