Music always makes work more fun!

Heart of Dakota Tidbit:

Music always makes work more fun!

One of the things our employees love about working in the warehouse is the fact that they get to listen to music while they work. Since each of our employees gets a turn to play their own playlist, we get to hear all sorts of different artists! Here’s some of their current favorites:

  • George Strait (Country)
  • Kenny Chesney (Country)
  • Kingdom Heirs (Southern Gospel)
  • Hans Zimmer (Film Soundtrack)
  • David Crowder*Band (Christian Contemporary)
  • TobyMac (Christian Contemporary)
  • Newsboys (Christian Contemporary)

We’re always on the lookout for new music! So…what are some of YOUR favorite artists? 😀

The habit of praise in children’s devotions

A Charlotte Mason Moment:

“Perhaps we do not attach enough importance to the habit of praise in our children’s devotions. Praise and thanksgiving come freely from the young heart; gladness is natural and holy, and music is a delight.”

(Home Education by Charlotte M. Vol. 3, p. 143)

The Song Must Go On!

Did you know that Heart of Dakota was given the publishing rights to Hymns for a Kid’s Heart Vol.1, Hymns for a Kid’s Heart Vol. 2, and When Morning Guilds the Skies by Bobbi Wolgemuth and Joni Eareckson Tada? These books had gone out of print and we are excited to be able to keep them available for years to come!

Have a great weekend!

Christian Quartet Music and Heart of Dakota

HOD Tidbits

The Love of Music Shines Through in the Heart of Dakota Curriculum

Did you know Carrie and Julie’s Dad sang in a Christian quartet called “The Reformers” for over 25 years? His quartet even made a record, gave concerts at local churches, and sang at his three daughters’ weddings. That is why you will often hear Christian quartet music playing as our sons and nephews pick and ship your orders in our Heart of Dakota warehouse! One of the favorite groups is The Kingdom Heirs which can be heard almost every week on the playlist. The love of music in our HOD guides also comes from the love of music their Dad had – we hope you enjoy the music in our guides as well!

Have a great weekend!
