Songs for All Saints Day

Happy Hallowmas!  Our family has been jamming out to a lot of fun music celebrating saints and angels today!  I have a mix of traditional hymns, secular tunes, and contemporary Christian songs that I think are all perfect for today’s Holy Day! If a hymn below was written by a […]


Patriotic Playlist

Looking to put together a playlist for your 4th of July celebration?  Most of these songs can be found on the patriotic CDs I posted about yesterday.  I have provided links for songs that are not on those albums, or are not covered by many artists already.  Enjoy your Independence […]


Independence Day CDs

I am sure there are dozens of CDs out there to help you celebrate the 4th of July.  I am simply posting a few of our favorite patriotic albums, in case you may not have heard of them and would like to try them out for your family’s celebrations.  Enjoy! […]


Songs for Pentecost

Pentecost is one of my favorite holidays – such a powerful culmination of the Easter Season!  Come, Holy Spirit! Oh, how I wish this post were much, much longer!  As short as it is, here are songs I have pulled together for a Pentecost playlist to give you over an […]


Songs for Easter

In addition to these great CDs for Easter, there are many individual songs out there about Christ’s Resurrection.  Bring them together, and you have an Easter playlist!  Many of the songs are traditional hymns that can easily be found; others are hard to find, so I am listing original artists […]
