We’re always on the go. Who isn’t these days? One of the ways we keep entertained is with the music we listen to. I guess it’s always been that way with us. Of course when the kids were little we listened to “their” music along with our Christian music. When I say music, I mean kid songs.
Then they grew up to be teenagers. Thank goodness! Then I was only subjected to kids music when they wanted to torture anyone driving near us. Oh, those were the good ol’ days. I have a feeling those days will be coming with my boys. One can hope.
I loved when my girls started getting interested in music on their own. They wanted their own CDs and iPod downloads! Makes this music lovin’ mama’s heart happy. My boys are getting to that place now.
One of our newest, favorite bands is Rend Collective. When they come on the radio, we all start rocking out to it. In fact, I videotaped the boys playing their “car instruments” to one of their songs from 2012 on Instagram!
Driving in a car, listening to music, can be an experience when you do it with us…well, with me. I have this affect on people. I cause them to sing out loud, at the people we drive by, or even TO the people we drive by. I’d say it’s hereditary, because my oldest daughter started doing it after we took a couple of road trips to Chicago, but I’ve done it numerous times with my sister in law, too.
With Rend Collective’s The Art of Celebration, I have a feeling my boys will be joining the ranks of their sister and aunt! It’ll start with Burn Like a Star because we’re lucky to stay in our seats as we drive. It’s one of those songs where you want to pull over, get out of the car, turn the music up, and dance around!

Some of the songs help me imagine what it would be like to be at a tent revival. There’s just something about their music. Songs All That I Am and Immeasurably More like make you want to clap your hands and stomp your feet. Others make you want just sway, raise your hands, and worship like Joy and More Than Conquerors.
