5 kid-approved Christian songs to add to your summer play list

Here are 5 songs you may enjoy and play on repeat!

  1. Prize Worth Fighting For by Jamie Kimmett
  2. Symphony by Stitch (Ellis’ favorite)
  3. Even then by Micah Tyler (Elliot’s favorite)
  4. Who you say I am by Hillsong Worship (Suh family favorite)
  5. Scars by I Am They (Three Musketeers’ favorite (meaning me and the kids)

One of my favorite songs is “Prize Worth Fighting For” by Jamie Kimmett. His inspiration for this song (as heard on K-Love) is about a friend who recently became disabled from an accident and now uses a wheelchair: even basic tasks, that able-bodied people take for granted, is a daily struggle to do.

This song reminds me that it’s not just physical limitations but other life challenges that are insurmountable by ourselves (and boy, are there many!). We need God leading us through those insecure times when we make difficult decisions, confront our fears, and walk in faith.

Part of the lyrics for Jamie Kimmett’s song:

When every day is just another struggle
And every choice is an act of war
Gotta pray, gotta press on
To the prize worth fighting for
When it feels like I’ll never make it
When my heart’s crying out for more
Gotta pray, gotta press on
To the prize worth fighting for

Your love is my reward
The prize worth fighting for
Jesus, You’re worth my all


Another favorite song is “Who you say I am” by Hillsong Worship. This song became more special after Hannah, the kid’s babysitter, sang and played the song beautifully on the piano for us. Ellis sang like this song was her own.

It was refreshing to see her sing out loud and with confidence. Her new voice (raspy and low) that is from vocal chord nerve damage from her heart surgery has been an ongoing issue for her. But that afternoon you wouldn’t have sensed any doubt as she sang along with one of her favorite people. Below is the song’s chorus:

In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

I am chosen
Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me
Not against me
I am who You say I am


Hope you get a chance to check these songs out! Have a great day as we head into a very warm summer.

Writing and daydreaming have always been two of my favorite things to do. I've been an avid journal writer since junior high school. It was a way for me to survive the complex world of being a Korean-American female straddling two cultures. Journal writing continued through graduate school, but that luxury is now replaced with multitasking to raise and homeschool two young kids. As the self-proclaimed domestic C.E.O. of our home, personal reflection occurs mostly in my subconscious dreams, during solo grocery shopping runs, or when my husband Chris takes the kids to Costco for an afternoon trip.
