A Heart For Discipling Our Legacies

I recently read a post written by Becky Fischer of Kids In Ministry International on Facebook that bears sharing again on this website.  I quote Fischer, because my husband and I were led down a path of perceiving and raising our children from infancy 25+ years ago through a Kingdom lens, all throughout having experienced what she references. Our family also traveled for several years with KIMI in both worship and teaching, and I read Fischer’s book prior to it even being published. My husband and I were led to raise our children to be Kingdom leaders, i.e. spiritual parenting, in contrast to what both Fischer and our family have observed throughout the years and nations. I concur that in 2018, in the church throughout America, Fischer’s perspective still rings truth. It’s why I wrote and released my newest curriculum in November 2017, The Children’s Heart Cry (Equipping A Generation To BE The Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth) (See Latest Products on the left side bar of this site or Amazon for more details). I include another valuable resource by Joseph Mattera at the end of this post, because it is NOW time for the Body of Christ to wise up and rise up!

Written by Becky Fischer – Kids In Ministry International

‘I travel all over the world speaking in churches and conferences across denominational lines. Here’s what I find: that children are not taken seriously as disciples of Christ in Christianity. In our churches we entertain them, play games with them. We tell them cute little Bible stories. We keep them busy, and we keep them out of our way. In our homes we love them, pray for them, bless them, and give them the best of everything. We lay our lives down for them as parents, self-sacrificing in order that our children can have what we never had.

But we seldom, in church or in our homes, seriously disciple them in the Christian faith—our faith that supposedly means more to us than life itself. And if we’re not careful, we’re going to lose them.

Take the challenge. Read my book “Redefining Children’s Ministry in the 21st Century.” 

My heart is for the children to be equipped to BE His Kingdom come, His will be done, on EARTH as it is in Heaven. This is the other great resource I referenced above:

New Sound & Healing Therapy Instrumental CD Release: Sound Expressions For Kids


Sound Expressions for Kids
is a holistic frequency infused spontaneous Holy Spirit led instrumental CD release, created specifically for children (and for parents/teachers) to incorporate into vehicle riding time, study time/homework, quiet/calming time, classrooms, creative time, bedtime, sleep issues, etc.. More and more people around the globe are realizing the need for shifting away from stress-filled atmospheres/busy schedules and toward holistic healing approaches. Much research indicates music as playing a significant role in that journey.

Holistic healing, i.e. body, mind, soul, and spirit, is important to everyone’s journey. What we allow into our atmospheres, our minds, our emotions, our spirits, and our physical bodies impacts each of us profoundly. Both sound and music inherently and creatively possess a strategically important intention/purpose, as do tunings, settings, keys, Scriptures, and Holy Spirit (not necessarily in that order). I intimately know the Word, the Spirit, how to play skillfully on my instrument (piano/keyboard), and Sound & Healing Therapy. Sound Expressions for Kids has been created specifically to holistically, peacefully, and uniquely impact your children and their atmosphere, bringing alignment into the busyness of life.

See specific album details under the Products page on the left side bar of this website. Listening clips and digital downloads on iTunes, CD Baby, and wherever digital distribution is available 01/22/18!

The Children’s Heart Cry Curriculum


Are you equipping your children for the American Dream or for the Kingdom of our Father, on Earth as it is in Heaven? There is a huge difference. Don’t be content to do as it’s always been done. There is infinitely more we can do to equip this generation for the times in which we have been called.

For Parents and Teachers of All Ages

The Children’s Heart Cry contains foundational equipping tools and instructional materials for raising up sons and daughters of the Kingdom of Heaven on the Earth. It includes Hands On Activities and over a year’s worth of equipping for a lifetime.

As parents, your ceiling is your children’s floor. As teachers, you establish and nurture the foundations for a lifetime. The author’s passion and calling is to equip a generation in Christ-centered identity and Kingdom purpose, empowering sons and daughters to live out this life through agape love, freedom, and wholeness. This unique Kingdom ministry focuses on releasing and encountering the Presence of our Healer Himself, in conjunction with discipleship for equipping the generations to be secure in our Heavenly Father’s love, carrying a mantle as His ambassadors of that love for such a time as this.

Tammy Sorenson is a wife, mother of six, accompanist, teacher, home educator, song-writer, worshiper, psalmist, author, and speaker. Her years of teaching public school music education, private and group piano instruction, gifted and talented education, home-education, adoption, worship ministry, children’s/family ministry, house of prayer ministry, 37 years of marriage, and living a lifetime purposefully and intentionally for the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, contribute the many experiences culminating in The Children’s Heart Cry.

Sorenson holds a PHD in Practical Theology, an M.A. in Music Education, a B.A. in Piano Performance, and a B.S. in Vocal Music Education. She is certified in Sound & Healing Therapy, VoiceBio Sound & Healing Therapy, Essential Oils, Orff Schulwerk, and Suzuki Piano, and is both licensed and ordained in the Fellowship of Christian Assemblies.

The Children’s Heart Cry is available as a pdf download (contact us for details), as a thumb drive (see Latest Products on the left side bar of this site for details) or as a paperback through Amazon (use Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature for details).

What Is Your Intentional Parenting Vision?

Is your intentional parenting vision about raising your children to be good people, to have a good education, a good job, a family, happiness, i.e. the American dream? Is your parenting vision about raising your children to contribute to society, to be good church attendees, or to lead and carry on the political or religious views, or generational traditions you are teaching them? Or is your parenting vision less cultural, traditional, theological, or political, and much more radical? Say…a wholehearted desire to train them up in the ways of the Word, in the power of Jesus Christ, and to be led by Holy Spirit, to be our Heavenly Father’s sons and daughters advancing the Kingdom of Heaven on the Earth in every mountain of culture: government, education, business, media, arts & entertainment, family, and church?

I will be casting vision for parents who understand their children to be our Heavenly Father’s gifts to lovingly steward from the womb to leaving the nest, with a desire to raise them up as:

1) Spirit and Truth worshipers;
2) sons and daughters who are secure in their Christ-centered identity;
3) intimately knowledgeable of both the Word and the Spirit (recognize and follow Holy Spirit’s voice);
4) seeking first the Kingdom of Heaven and His righteousness;
5) nurtured, equipped and skilled in every natural and spiritual gifting from a young age to live life here on the Earth for the Lord’s glory;
6) passionate about preparing the way for the return, rule, and reign of King Jesus on the Earth;
7)  confident in and yielded to Holy Spirit leading, aligned with the Word, as our Heavenly Father’s vessels advancing His Kingdom on the Earth NOW, i.e. all the days of their lives.

I will soon be launching a video teaching series specific to parents whose desire is to steward their children for the Lord in ALL His good plans and purposes for each one. Everything I convey/cast vision about will be validated by Scripture. If one does not believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, Jehovah God as our loving Heavenly Father, eternal salvation and overcoming victory through Jesus Christ, nor the power of Holy Spirit, stop here. I am called to cast vision on behalf of those who desire to seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and His righteousness, resulting in lives lived radically for the King of kings and the Lord of lords on Earth as it is in Heaven; on behalf of the children in every nation in this generation.

I am truly excited and called as a spiritual mother, i.e. a spiritual mentor/worshiper/intercessor/psalmist/teacher, on behalf of this generation longing for His Presence in the power of His Word to be their entire lens/testimony for this life in all things. More information soon!

In the meantime, check out The Children’s Heart Cry on this website under Latest Products on the left sidebar to get a 2018 head start with this journey in a new season. The Children’s Heart Cry is also available on Amazon! I am also currently working on a holistic frequency infused spontaneous Holy Spirit led CD release for children. Parents/teachers will be encouraged to incorporate this CD into car time, study time, quiet time, creative time, bed time, etc.. More information soon!

Solfege Frequencies

Ecclesiastes 1:9, “That which has been is that which will be [again], And that which has been done is that which will be done again. So there is nothing new under the sun.”

This Scripture holds true for A444 Hz, 528 Hz, 432 Hz, and ‘Wholetones’ tuning/frequencies as well. These frequencies can be traced back to King David and to Gregorian monks in the 9th and 10th centuries. In music methodologies, they are referred to as Solfege or Solfeggio frequencies. I taught Solfege in my elementary music classes for years utilizing both the Kodaly and Orff-Schulwerk methodologies. Orff-Schulwerk has been around since the 1920’s and the Kodaly method since the mid-twentieth century. Composers from each of the musical periods, i.e. Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and even 20th century did not tune in A440 Hz until it was standardized as the international tuning in the 1950’s.

Those of us in sound & healing are simply bringing revelation to using what has long existed prior to the standardization of the A440 Hz tuning.  We intentionally ensure our tuning aligns the frequencies properly.

Sound Expressions music utilizes the seven solfege frequencies, along with strings/pads for the best odd/even harmonic balance, and additionally incorporates the full range of frequencies from VoiceBio and Sound Healing Therapy training/certifications. I received an awesome testimony as I am writing this post from a family in Texas:

“We have a homeless individual staying with us. At night we always put your music on kind of loud. It calms dogs down, too! The first night the individual was at our house she said she slept so deeply and felt so refreshed. She said the music was saying, “Come back to me” over and over. That Sunday she asked to go to church with us and rededicated her life to God. She asks every night to put the music on. We play a variety of your CDs (they have them all). The first night we had on your latest music, Fragrant Expressions. We all love your music!!!”

  • understand their unique role as psalmists in discerning revelation and releasing the atmosphere of Heaven to shift the atmosphere on Earth;
  • are in alignment with the love of our Heavenly Father in this NOW Kingdom age we have entered into; and
 walk in wholehearted love, devotion, and obedience in Christ.
