    So, when you are learning the hymns, are y’all just singing them a cappella? Or are you listening to something? I can’t read music, so a little concerned about keeping the tune, etc.

      Jen, I can’t carry a tune in a bucket so I use CDs on my mp3 player or YouTube videos on my mobile device. Some of my favorite CDs are Hymns for a Kids Heart series, Hymns for Kith and Kin, and Listen While We Sing. HTH!

    I’m intrigued by your iTunes playlists. What do have on them? Would you mind posting some sample lists? I’d also love a demo on how you use the Amazon gadgets – the Amazon Alexa and Amazon Tap. Maybe a FaceBook Live recording? I use YouTube a lot through my phone. Would these gadgets be easier to use than pulling my playlists up from YouTube?

    I record memory work for my children on the iPad with an app called Educreations (www.educreations.com.) I use it mostly for poetry and catechism memory work. There’s even a white board on the app so I can write or draw illustrations as I’m recording. My silly illustrations provide visuals for my children and their memory work locks in much quicker.

    I’m with Susan. In fact, I think that would make a great follow-up podcast— how you use technology in your morning time!!

  • Abby Johnson says:

    I would love to hear more about how you use the Amazon tech and recorded playlist and readings, along with a how to. ?
