Smart Kidz Radio: Member’s On-Demand Radio Program Library – A

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

We have been listening to Smart Kidz Radio: Member’s On-Demand Radio Program Library, an educational and inspirational radio station for kids, from Smart Kidz Radio. When our children were younger, we loved listening to audiobooks and music, especially when we traveled. So having the chance to review this online service that provides educational and inspirational music and stories for children grabbed my attention.

As a musical family who plays a variety of instruments and also enjoys singing, we really appreciated the music selection they include on this site.  The site includes music, stories, early learning programs, behavior skills programs, living skills programs, Kids Bible & Inspirational Songs, Let’s Celebrate America programs, as well as many more.

Smart Kidz Media, Inc (also known as SKM) represents a collaboration between two companies who used to be competitors in children’s music, SKM, and Twin Sisters. Over 30 years of experience, provide the management team with a wealth of knowledge and experience that allows this company to succeed.

Provided high-quality content remains the goal and focus of this company. The digital library represents the largest library in the United States of media aimed at character building, social skills, and positive value songs. Providing selections suitable for the entire family, this site offers a wealth of options.

The company also operates the Smart Kidz Foundation whose mission is to encourage young people to make a difference in their own lives, the lives of others, along with the global community. It aims to empower young people to use their own hands to shape their future into a better, and more peaceful one.

A portion of every Smart Kidz Radio’s membership is donated to the Smart Kidz Foundation, a non-profit foundation that financially supports programs that give opportunities to young people to make a difference by using their talents to make the world a better place. These opportunities allow young people to experience the joy of helping others while building self-confidence, compassion, and respect for the environment.

Because our family enjoys music, we concentrated on listening to musical selections.  Some choices included music for studying by the Let’s Celebrate America concert collection, America’s Heritage in Song- Smart Boyz Choir, the Children’s Gospel Choir Celebration, and various other selections.

The quality of the music included impressed our family.  The richness of the sound made us feel as though we were attending an in-person concert.  We also appreciated the introductions to the selections.  These introductions were both informative and interesting.

Let’s Celebrate America Concert collection includes songs like The Pledge of Allegiance, America the Beautiful, You’re a Grand Old Flag, This Is My Country and more.  We appreciated how the introduction included references to our founding father Thomas Jefferson and words he penned.

One of my favorite songs from the Children’s Gospel Choir Celebration is His Eye is On the Sparrow.  

We appreciate the fact that diversity consistently appears in the words spoken and sung on this site.

Just for fun, I also elected to listen to the story of Beauty of the Beast in the Learning Through Stories: My First Nursery Tales section.  I found the story to be produced well and enjoyable to listen to for individuals of all ages.

Grow Over Your Wall – A Review

About the Book

Book: Grow Over Your Wall

Author: Matt Sorger

Genre: Christian Living/Spiritual Growth

Release Date: September 18, 2020

Experience Gods Unstoppable Blessings and Breakthrough!

You may be facing an issue that’s seems like an insurmountable barrier in your life. Or, your circumstances may be so difficult you feel surrounded by walls with no way out. You ask God to knock down those walls, just as He did for Joshua at Jericho. But they’re still standing. Sometimes, God removes the obstacles from our lives immediately and dramatically. But what can we do when the change doesn’t occur, when the breakthrough doesn’t come, when God’s promises aren’t fulfilled, even when we pray?

That’s when we have to plant ourselves in God’s Word and presence and let Him grow us over the wall. The breakthrough starts as our roots grow deep. This is what Joseph did when he was in the pit and the dungeon. He grew over his wall by adopting a heavenly perspective rather than an earthly one. The result was a multitude of blessings for him, his family, and the world: “Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a well; his branches run over the wall (Genesis 49:22).

You can grow over your own wall of difficulty, opposition, hindrance, or limitation. As you grow, your wall won’t look as high as it used to. And one day, you will grow over it. Every negative situation will divinely position you to be where you need to be in life. You will grow over circumstances you thought were too powerful for you. You will grow over the wall of limitation that once surrounded you. You will grow over the dead end or impossibility that threatened to defeat you. The trials of life have no power to stop you from being abundant and fruitful in God, receiving His blessings, and fulfilling the plans He has for you. Like Joseph, let your branches grow over the wall. Then, your breakthrough will become a breakthrough and blessing for others, too, enabling them to grow over their own walls of difficulty.

Everyone encounters difficulties or difficulties in getting where they desire to go. This book helps remind us that God makes all things possible. It provides insights and assistances about how to approach those difficulties and allow God to move mightily in our lives.

The author has created a book suitable for either individual study or small-group study. I felt it was written well and it definitely kept my attention. So check out this book for yourself.

 I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
