My parents weren’t perfect but they did a lot of things right. One of those things is that they made it easy for me to have God-honoring items around. My mom didn’t hesitate to help me purchase entertainment that edified God.
CDs. I mean, tapes. Yes, I am that old!
This is a tradition that I want to continue for our four kiddos. Providing them with quality, God-loving media.
1 Girl Nation
(1GN) sounds like any other group on the pop stations. The difference is that their lyrics encourage girls to stay strong, pure, and focused on a life honoring God. Doesn’t get any better than that!
We have enjoyed this five-girl group and I know that it will be one the Sweet Pea enjoys for many years to come. As her mommy, I pray that these lyrics will ring in her heart throughout her teenage years reminder her to stand strong and hold fast to her Savior.
Here are a few lines from their first album – 1 Girl Nation – just released in August.
We’re gonna save ourselves the heartache
We’re not looking back on what we wished we’d done
We’re gonna risk it all for one thing
And live for Jesus while we’re young. (While We’re Young)
You are treasured
You are beautiful
In the eyes, in the eyes
of the One who made you
You are perfect
You’re worth more than you know
In the eyes, in the eyes
of the One who made you (In the Eyes)
We are meant to burn bright, be a light
Illuminate the nightsky
We gotta be the spark
Show the word who we are
And love like crazy
We’ve gotta follow to lead
Take a stand on our knees
And love like crazy (Love Like Crazy)
Honestly, these are lyrics that I need to take to heart. And the beat will definitely help me fold laundry!
This CD would make a great gift for the elementary to teenage-aged girls in your life – daughter, niece, or friend. I have also thought the 1 Girl Nation CD would make a great gift for all of the friend birthday parties Sweet Pea gets invited to!
