This whole plan began as an effort to eliminate family piracy. When my youngest children discovered contemporary Christian music, their spiritual barometer moved skyward. They were encouraged by the new music and challenged by thoughtful lyrics.
Then I discovered they were borrowing CDs from friends and family, burning them onto our computer, and listening through Windows Media Player. They had no money for tunes and thought they’d found the perfect solution.
After our discussion about piracy and digital theft, we had a brainstorm. I agreed to buy a CD a month with three of us choosing the CD on a rotating basis. They were free to buy their own or beg for gifts but they could count on the CD of their choice every third month.
It works pretty well. But here’s the deal. I need ideas!
Here’s what we’ve bought since January:
Go by Newsboys
Scars Remain by Disciple
Awaken by Natalie Grant
The Yearbook by KJ52
Hearts of the Innocent by Kutless
Open Wide this Window by GlassByrd
Chaotic Resolve by Plumb

Can we say eclectic?
