From the beginning of  year, I carved a habit that I think will not just benefit me as a blogger but also as a Christian. I have been putting this off forever and now I’m getting the hang of it. Sure, I do get a Starbucks planner yearly to write down my sermons, jot down messages, blog post and to-do list. However now I can say that I benefit more of journal than merely doing those things.

Interview: Tim Briggs of Folk Hymnal on Playing Music Together With Your Kids

ldtf7pp

For parents, this quarantine time is quality time for their kids. In the past months, we are caught up with the busyness of our work and ministry. But now, here we are at home with our kids. Spending time with them means doing things together, like making music.

We reach out to Tim Briggs of Folk Hymnal to talk about singing and playing music together with our kids. Also get to know what Folk Hymnal is up to.

 

Delighting Grace: Hi Tim! Please tell us about yourself.

Tim Briggs: My name is Tim Briggs and I’m a Lead Pastor of a church plant in Charlotte, NC called Steadfast Church. As a hobby, I helped create Folk Hymnal. Folk Hymnal is a guild of church worship leaders creating theologically rich songs in an accessible and attractive way.

Delighting Grace: Cool! so are you married? Do you have kids in your home?

Tim Briggs: I’ve been married for 15 years and we have three boys aged 10, 8, and 6. As you might imagine, it’s quite rowdy around the house but it’s a whole lot of fun too!

Delighting Grace: How do you spend your quality time with them?

Tim Briggs:  We enjoy spending time together as a family watching silly videos, playing board games, and recreating outside. Of late, we’ve created a YouTube channel where we make silly videos together. We’ve also created a baseball board game which we are planning on making a Kickstarter for.

Delighting Grace: Since you’re a musician and leads Folk Hymnal, do you get to extend that musicality to your kids?
