Music for Mothers to Encourage and Inspire

Today I wanted to share some music for mothers to encourage and inspire us. Our job is not easy. It’s often 24/7 with little rest or time to ourselves. We struggle with making the best decisions for our kids as we try to keep everyone healthy, educated, and growing in the right ways.

But, it’s also the most joy-filled job in the world. Seeing their first smile, first steps, or finally catching on to the math or reading concept that you’ve been working with them for weeks or months–there’s no comparison!

Be encouraged and know you’re loved today, dear fellow mamas!

Music for Mothers to Encourage and Inspire ~ 3 songs for moms and 3 musical pieces to enjoy with your kids! Includes a free printable pack and a giveaway: win one of five $100 gift certificates.

“Give You Faith” by Laura Story

What is the most important thing you can teach or leave for your children? If you’re a believer, you know that it’s faith in Christ.

The most important thing that we could possibly give our children is to not just tell them about the faith that we have but to live out that faith as a family. Sometimes that means not giving them everything they want but showing them that the most important thing in my life isn’t even them—it’s actually my faith in Jesus Christ—and just point them to Jesus.” – Laura Story

“A Mother’s Prayer” by Celine Dion

New words were written to the gorgeous song “The Prayer” (by David Foster, Carole Bayer Sager, Alberto Testa and Tony Renis) to turn it into a mother’s prayer for her child.

“Always Love Me” by Tori Kelly

This next song is sung by a child to her mother about how no matter how much she messes up, her mom will always love her.


Now, listen to some music listen with your kids! It might be fun to share the background information with them. If they are little, hold your child and dance with them. Older kids can dance on their own with a scarf or long ribbon. Play simple instruments like shakers, jingle bells, rhythm sticks, or drums!

The Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns

The Carnival of the Animals was written by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns in 1886 to be humorous and fun. In fact, he refused to have it published during his lifetime for fear that it would tarnish his “serious” composer reputation. Now, it’s his most well-known composition. The Carnival of the Animals was written for two pianos,  two violins, viola, cello, double bass, flute (and piccolo), clarinet (C and B), glass harmonica, and xylophone.

Here are its 14 movements, each representing a different animal or animals:

  1. Introduction and Royal March of the Lion
  2. Hens and Roosters
  3. Wild Donkeys Swift Animals
  4. Tortoises
  5. The Elephant
  6. Kangaroos
  7. Aquarium
  8. Characters with Long Ears
  9. The Cuckoo in the Depths of the Woods
  10. Aviary
  11. Pianists (satirizes pianists as animals)
  12. Fossils
  13. The Swan
  14. Finale


Children’s Corner by Claude Debussy

Children’s Corner is a suite for solo piano in six movements written by French composer Claude Debussy in 1908. He wrote it for and dedicated it to his 3-year-old daughter.

The six movements:

  1. Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum
  2. Jimbo’s Lullaby
  3. Serenade for the Doll
  4. The Snow Is Dancing
  5. The Little Shepherd
  6. Golliwogg’s Cakewalk


Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev

Peter and the Wolf is a symphonic fairy tale for children written by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev in 1936. It’s easy for children to listen to because a narrator tells the children the story while the orchestra plays it.
