What's going on with Maynard's Groovy Bible Tunes, from day to day...
We sang "My Little Seed" at the KS1 assembly (years 1-2, ages 5-7) this morning.
It's based on the teaching in Colossians 1:15-16, that Jesus is closely involved in keeping the world going, by his creating power. I wrote it specially for the younger age range, and it's got some nice actions / motions to go with it.
The kids loved it this morning, so I'm going to try to get it recorded & published in the next few days... watch this space!Continued - Read More »»
I've updated the website styling a little - new font, new curvy boxes. Hope you like it!
They're inspiritional guys because, not only did they brave boring food to honour God (Daniel 1), but they refused to bow down to Nebuchadnezzar's statue - and lived to tell the tale! (Daniel 3). You can almost imagine them singing "Our God is the Real God - we'll only worship him!". Well, I can anyway - hence a special verse about them in my song "Daniel" - click here!
BBC Radio 4's "You and Yours" programme have just had an item all about children and teenagers using computers. It's prompted me to get "AppTimer.net" available online...
AppTimer.net is a little computer program I've been using with my kids for a few years now.
It helps you to manage how much time they spend on the computer. You give them, say, an hour a day of time on Internet Explorer, and once they start using Internet Explorer AppTimer.net starts counting down the hour. They get a warning when the time's nearly up, and then at the hour Internet Explorer is shut down, and can't start again til the next day.
They'll hate you for a day or two when you install this, so make sure you have a decent conversation with them about why you're doing it. One day, they'll be glad you did it, and they'll thank you. You'll be glad every day, when you actually get a chance to talk to them.
It's still in BETA form (the network communication part of it works but not perfectly), and it's FREE, and you can get it here: http://www.maynardsgroovytunes.co.uk/store/apptimer-net-kids-computer-timer-beta.html
There are more pictures on the website: apptimer.net
Hope it helps - just email via the contact form for support.
Loving this one, don't know when I'll get a chance to record it, but here are the words:
The tune? Inspired by the Vaccines and Spector... (guess who's got teenage kids now?)
When will I record it? Dunno - probably after Easter, sorry!Continued - Read More »»
