Jay Stocker on Scripture Lullabies and How Kids Hide God’s Word in Their Hearts

One of the best ways to find relief from anxiety and stress is through music. Jay Stocker knew this, which led him create a series of lullaby albums meant to help children escape nightmares, get a better night’s sleep, and hide Scripture in their hearts.

After nearly eight years without a new installment in the Scripture Lullaby series, Jay Stocker is releasing the fourth volume of Hidden in My Heart: A Lullaby Journey Through Scripture focused on how we can all find hope in the Lord, even in a world of uncertainty.

    Today, I did not understand why the Lord stopped me from doing what I had planned to do, by sending a minor physical ailment which forced me to sit quietly on my couch. This interview with Jay popped up in my Facebook feed, so I decided to watch. At about 13 minutes into the interview, Jay began to describe what I have been experiencing with my own musical compositions, about being a “good steward” of the material God has given me…I was sad, after hitting road blocks, but realize I need to wait…His timing is perfect! Thank you Lord and thank you and Jay for speaking to me heart today. God bless you. I also worked with Hospice and dying patients for many years. May God hold your loved-one in the palm of His hand…

    Thank you for introducing Jay Stocker’s “Quietly” to us. His music reminds us so much of our own daughter’s piano compositions, which she composed in the early 2000s, as she was going through high school. She was then able to make a CD of these precious songs in 2004. Kimberly has severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (treated quite well with Deep Brain Stimulation) and loves the Lord with all her heart, soul, strength, and mind. Kindergarten teachers in our area at the time (southern Ontario, Canada) would play her CD, “Freedom”, for their classes when they wanted them to settle down. This peaceful, beautiful music is so important in all our lives. 🙂

    It is amazing music. I think people are so blessed with this humble and beautiful format and style. I can vouch on the music side of this, that Jay is not just a musician, but a servant, and as a classical musician recognize his harmonies and orchestral knowledge is as accomplished as anyone out there…on the level of expertise of John Williams, Alan Menken or others. What surprises me is that someone of this talent is humble and seeking a medium to reach young children. What a special calling.
