48 (JMG1238) "I Know a Someone" "Family Tree" (Reprise) Help the children to realize that no matter what our family situation, God still loves and cares for us. Psalm 56:8 Psalm 68: 5-6 Psalm 68:19 I Peter 5:7 Explain that when we receive Christ as our Savior, we become members of God's family. John 1:12 Ephesians 1:5 Ephesians 2:19 ADDITIONAL IDEAS: Explore with parents of children in the musical the idea to utilize a genealogical website(s) to fully explore their own family tree. In addition to (or instead of) using a paid online ancestry service, many records can be found online for free. This can be educational and inspirational for children and their families. Have children in the choir make their own family tree for public display after the performance (and/or during the musical preparation period as an additional promotional touch to generate excitement and attendance). God knows when we cry. God is a father of the fatherless. He makes a home for the lonely. God bears our burdens every day. God cares for you. All who receive Christ and believe in His name are given the right to become children of God. We are adopted into God's family through Jesus Christ. Speaks of God's household.

There, she met her husband, Mickey, also a musician, who was studying Choral Conducting. Ellen worked briefly in Nashville, TN, in the Children's Music Department of The Baptist Sunday School Board (Lifeway), where she was given the opportunity to write Family Tree, and she is very excited for its re-release in an updated version.
