Arrows in Our Hand S1E6: Family Bible Time in Action-Part 1

We hope you enjoy our ramblings about how we are NOT perfect parents & we like to use songs during Bible time!  If there are any song resources that you have that we have not included below, please comment here, email us, or post on our Facebook page.  We are excited to share these ideas with you & get more resources from others!  Here's the link to all of our episodes on The Light Network (including today's!)!

Season 1 Episode 6: "Family Bible Time in Action-Part 1"
Wesley & Denise talk about the importance of humility & realizing we are not perfect parents.  They also discuss ways to incorporate singing into your Family Bible Time.  The winner of the Family Bible Time contest is announced! 

Links:-Each Little Dewdrop CD (our favorite-it also has a book that you can purchase separately if you need help with the words) 

-Children's Bible Songs by The Baker Family CD (2 disc set-a few have clapping & we skip those! This set includes Three Kings of Israel, Twelve Sons of Jacob, Writers of the New Testament) 

-Hannah's Hundred CD list with scriptures (4 volumes available)-I'm Gonna Sing (we skip a few of these as well) 
-Listen to worship songs online This congregation has countless recordings of their singings they have had that include LOTS of "traditional hymns" as well as newer songs.  This would be a great resource for teaching your children songs that are normally sung during worship. You can listen online or download the files.

The Fruit of the Spirit
The Fruit of the Spirit's not a watermelon
The Fruit of the Spirit's not a watermelon
If you want to be a watermelon
You might as well hear it.
You can't be a Fruit of the Spirit.
'Cause the Fruit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness,
Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness,
Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. 
*repeat with different fruits.

Ten Commandments Song 
(Tune: Ten Little Indians
There are hand motions for each verse also that help you remember the number & what it is--hopefully my descriptions make sense-if not, let me know!)
You shall have no other gods before me (x3) (shaking one finger)
This is commandment one
You shall not make for yourselves any idols (x3) (two fingers bowing down)
This is commandment two
You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God (x3) (three fingers to your mouth)
This is commandment three
Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy (x3) (four fingers tapping your forehead)
This is commandment four
Honor your father and your mother (x3) (five fingers at your forehead & chin-ASL sign for father & mother)
This is commandment five
You shall not kill (x3) (six fingers-the pointer finger on one hand as a sword)
This is commandment six
You shall not commit adultery (x3) (seven fingers, cross arms in front of your chest)
This is commandment seven
You shall not steal (x3) (eight fingers, hit hands together & switch to different eight fingers you're holding up-like a sleight of hand trick)
This is commandment eight
You shall not bear false testimony against your neighbor (x3) (nine fingers-hold hands on either side of your mouth & move out-like words coming out)
This is commandment nine
You shall not covet (x3) (ten fingers-pulling things toward you)
This is commandment ten

The Plagues
(Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)
Blood, frogs, lice & flies, murrain of cattle & boils on men,
hail & fire & locusts & darkness 
& last the death of the firstborn child.

(I cannot find this online anywhere-some friends taught it to us.  If you promise not to laugh at me & need to know the tune....I'll sing it to you!)
Methuselah was the oldest man who ever lived on Earth.
Nine hundred sixty nine long years he lived after his birth.
We don't know much about him
Except this one short line,
'Methuselah was the oldest man, 
Nine hundred sixty nine.'
