Music Notes from Ingrid
Some quotes from your children:

"Singing makes me feel energetic, because the music goes up and down and makes me want to jump and move! You never know how high or low it's gonna go, and it's so exciting!"

 

"We sing in church because it gives people joy. And someone could be having a really bad day, then they hear us sing in church and might feel a bit better and feel hope."

"Singing makes me feel in God's trust."
