Five Reasons My Family Absolutely Loves “Sing the Bible with Slugs & Bugs”

By

Hello, friends. I started writing for this outfit called For the Family a few months ago, and my most recent post is about how much our family loves Randall Goodgame’s new record. I thought you might like to see it. And speaking of that good fellow, don’t miss the live Stage-It show Randall has planned for this Saturday morning!


 

Our family has been profoundly blessed and wildly delighted by Randall Goodgame’s recent album, Sing the Bible with Slugs & Bugs. Here are a few reasons why.

1. The Book!
We are people of the Book. We love the Bible and want its truth on our lips and in our hearts. Our kids have been singing the Word of God all over our house since we got our copy of Sing the Bible with Slugs & Bugs. It’s deeply satisfying to my wife and I to know our kids are storing up the treasure of God’s Word in their hearts.

2. The Music!
The music on this album is phenomenal. A lot of family/kids music is hokie, repetitive, irritating, and worst of, feels canned. Randall Goodgame is an incredible musician and has brought together a team of brilliant musicians, including Grammy-riddled banjoist Ron Block (of Alison Krauss and Union Station fame), Andrew Peterson, Eric Peters, Buddy Green, a bunch of great kids, some monsters, some bees (trust me), and a host of others. Most fun of all, the African Children’s Choir out of Uganda lends its talents to the record. This is the real game-changer. Having spent a lot of my childhood in Africa, and most of the rest in Appalachia, this music is the real deal. It’s melodic folk-pop with a perfect dose of African rhythms (think Paul Simon’s Graceland) and a hint of bluegrass. It’s musically marvelous.

3. The Humor!
It’s got some fantastic humor. I know, I know. It’s kind of hard to see how it’s possible when it’s an album of Scripture songs. I don’t want to ruin any surprises, but just trust me. Like all the other Slugs & Bugs record, this one has some moments of pure hilarity. One such moment of hilarity includes an appearance by the wonderful author of The Jesus Storybook Bible, Sally Lloyd-Jones.

    First of all, my kids keep asking me to turn this cd on. Even the one-year-old prefers it! Second of all, every time we listen to it I am blessed by hearing the gospel again–I think it is benefitting me more than my kids right now! Third, the verses he chose are all such powerful ones. I am so thankful for the Lord using these talented people for His kingdom!

    This is our family’s soundtrack. My favorite part is when the scripture convicts me that I need to stop being disobedient and love God and my kids more than myself (this has happened multiple times in the car). Two thumbs way, way up for this one … and if I was an alien, I’d give it three thumbs up!
