About Our Family Song

welcome heartsWelcome!  We are the Boyd family.  Mom and Dad have been married for 37 years.  We have a married daughter and 6 boys still at home.  Our boys range in age from 8 to 20.  We have 4 boys in Elementary School, one in Middle School, and one High School graduate.  We are so blessed to have you visit our blog and share in the ministry that God has allowed through our Family Song.  We hope and pray that you will be encouraged, challenged, and inspired by what you find here.  Our posts and pages cover several topics:

* Christian home
* Discipleship
* Family ties and family blessings
* Encouragement for parents
* Experiencing trials, challenges, and crisis
* Ideas for family fun
* Inspiration
* Practical helps (within some of our posts)
* Special Needs (Our 8 year old has Autism)
* Testimony

We pray for our blog visitors from all over the world (129 Countries at last count).  Thank you for honoring us with your visit.  Grace and peace to you in your life and in your family!

Our personal Family Song is about the joys, fun, and challenges of parenting 6 young men in a chaotic world and helping them learn to share in God’s song of love and mercy.  For you, the challenges may be different.   Your family may not include 6 boys, but as parents we share the same vision:  to nurture, teach, and train our families in all areas of life, especially in their commitments to seek Gods plan for their lives and to be people who will make a positive impact in the world.

    I just noticed that in this photo, our twins are standing in the same way, with their feet turned in and their weight on the outside edge.of at least one shoe. This reminded me that not long ago, we bought some Cocoa Krispies. The twins had never had a rice cereal like that before, so I explaned how the cereal would ‘talk’ to them, making the little crackling noises in milk. It was uncanny to watch them both eat the cereal at the same time.

    With an empty chair between them, at opposite ends of the table, not looking at each other at all, and totally fixated on their own bowls of cereal, they were like an Olympic ‘Syncronized Cereal-Eating’ team. It was uncanny and so funny. I wish I’d had my video camera handy. They would both dip their spoons into the bowl at exactly the same time in exactly the same way, come up out of the bowl at the same time in the same way, and put the spoons in their mouths at the same time and in the same way. They did this over and over without looking at each other at all, in perfect syncronization. Then, every few bites, they would both lean over the bowl with their heads turned to the left so they could listen with their right ears. Again, at exactly the same time and in exactly the same way. They both ate the whole bowl like that, and it could not have been choreographed or rehearsed to have the timing down any more perfectly. And, they both were totally unaware that they were doing this. So funny! 🙂

    Oh, Cindy, I am continually blessed as I follow your life & family’s adventures. You are such a precious inspiration! I have 5 brothers and I love the scripture in Luke 16:28 when he pleaded for his 5 brothers. My mother’s plea to us the day she died was to continue praying for my two brothers and a sister who don’t seem to need the Lord.

      Thank you so much, Linda. What a great reminder that the love for our families is a life long love. Your love for our Lord and longing for others to know Him have inspired me for many years! He is is our help and our salvation!

A Little Boydie told me…

Just a reg’lar Mom in a house full of boys

I'm a busy wife and mother of 7, with 6 incredible boys still at home and a beautiful married daughter. Our boys range in age from our 10 year old twins to our 22 year old. We have 2 in Elementary School, 2 in Middle School, one in High School, and one High School grad. They are all incredible and special. One of our boys has special needs. I'm a musician, singer, writer, composer, blogger, and teacher. I'm thankful for our home and family, for Travis, my amazing husband of 39 years, and for family and friends near and far. Most of all, I'm thankful for God's grace and mercy and that He has given the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.

Giving a Song to say “Thank You”

Travis L. Boyd / WorshipSounds Music

Travis L. Boyd / WorshipSounds Music

As a follower of Jesus Christ, a husband and a father of 7, and a Minister of Music and Worship, I am very blessed. For a total of 32 years, I have served as a Minister of Worship for some wonderful congregations in the states of Oklahoma, Texas, and Georgia. It is a joy to lead God's people in worshipping Him through music, and I am very blessed to serve at First Baptist Church of Duluth, Georgia. I'm also a composer, lyricist, arranger, and orchestrator, with choral anthems, songs, and orchestrations published by Shawnee Press (now with Hal Leonard), Lorenz, Choristers Guild, and Lifeway. My web-based music publishing site, WorshipSounds Music (formerly Boydbrain Music), offers Choral Anthems, Orchestrations, Congregational Praise, and Vocal Solo music. Our worship blog has become an extension of worship ministry, and it is a privelege to share information and inspiration with other worshippers. My desire is to glorify God through my life, ministry, and composition work. I believe that music is a wonderful way to communicate the truths of God's love and mercy and to glorify Him. My wife, Cindy, and I have been married for 36 years. We have 7 children. Daughter Meredith lives in Texas. Sons Jared, Zachary, Braden, Logan, Austin, and Camden range in age from 7 to 19 and are still living at home.
