Scripture Lullabies are a series of CDs with soothing music. They can be used with babies, children or even adults as a way of creating a calm environment conducive to falling asleep or as an aid to scripture memorization.
I chose to use these CDs in a somewhat different manner as some of our children suffer from anxiety. In particular, our daughter Dancing Queen who, in addition to other diagnoses, has an anxiety disorder. Dancing Queen loves two things most in this entire world: God and music so when I heard about Scripture Lullabies, I knew immediately that I wanted to try them with her as an anxiety reduction strategy. Right now, she uses a Calm Kit that I made for her and it does have a sound therapy machine in it, but I felt that because these CDs use scripture, they would potentially be even more effective.
We were able to try Hidden in My Heart, a Lullaby Journey Through Scripture and Hidden in My Heart, Volume II. Volume III is about to be released!
Using Scripture Lullabies to Calm Anxiety…
For our daughter, music has been very therapeutic. To be able to combine the therapeutic nature of music with lyrics such as “Do not fear for I am with you” is simply healing. In that same song (“I Am Here” which is available on Volume II), it goes on to say “I will strengthen you. I will help you. Uphold you with my steady hand.” Those are exactly the types of reminders that my daughter needs to hear.
The music is soothing and relaxing and the lyrics are a wonderful reminder of a God who can take our cares and worries away and carry them far better than we can. Even as an adult, it is impossible for me to listen to these songs and not feel my blood pressure lower!
Dancing Queen was able to go from a state of high anxiety in the beginning stages of a full meltdown to a restful, calm state. I took this short video a few minutes after I had led her to a chair in a quiet room and put the music on for her. The video is not the best quality but you can see how calm she is and even see the hint of a smile.
I believe that Scripture Lullabies will be another tool that we can use to ease anxiety and reduce stress in all of the kids (and in me).
