What’s In The Bible: Volume 10 Jesus Is the Good News! review

OK, so I don’t push religion on anyone…and if you have kids with special needs (especially ODD) you know that the more you push anything on them, the more they REBEL against it. I even remember wanting to attend church as a child but being BORED outta my mind once the preacher began and trying to stay awake was what kept me “in tune”.

So I’m always looking for FUN, ENTERTAINING ways to teach my kids about the Bible, God, and Jesus. And once again if you have kids with special needs, you probably also know or can agree that anything with MUSIC helps keep their attention and retain the information.

So when I was extended the option to watch

What’s in the Bible? Vol 10: Jesus is the Good News

from VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer I replied quickly, reserving my spot.

When the DVD arrived my mom wanted to watch it too, so me, her and the boys made a movie date. My mom wasn’t really religious as I was growing up but she got “saved” within the past 10 years, joined the church and attends every Sunday now. She jumps on any opportunity to watch any movie about the Bible, cartoon or not, so she can possibly understand the Bible more than she does by reading it.

The DVD includes (2) 25-minute episodes: God’s Perfect Timing & The Messiah Has Come!. The first episode shows as Buck Denver, the puppet news reporter, and his crew learn about the 400 years between the Old and New Testaments and how Jesus arrives at just the perfect time. The second episode goes to teach you about the life and ministry of Jesus–how He died for us and rose again to launch the kingdom of God in the world and in us!

and none of this can go on without their catchy theme song…

which I caught myself singing along to…

My mom and I learned things alongside the boys that neither of us recalled hearing before so do I recommend this video???

YES, I Do and I hope to acquire more Volumes of this series for my boys too

~Glen Campbell I’ll Be Me~ A rare glimpse inside of The Rhinestone Cowboy’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease & 5 song EP soundtrack Giveaway

I was recently selected for an Exclusive Online Screening of a truly heart touching movie that I suggest anyone should see EVERYONE WATCH (not to be a “spoiler” but be sure you have a box of tissues in your lap). Although I don’t know anyone with Alzheimer’s disease, I do know first hand that loving someone battling a force you can’t control is heart-breaking…I am married to an “addict” so watching this movie was, well…very tough for me…but I’m truly GLAD I did & can’t wait to get it on DVD if it becomes available!!!  I feel that God gave me the opportunity for a reason.and Glen’s family showed me that I’m not alone. as other families battle life’s obstacles, sometimes worse than my/your own. Now a little about the movie:

From the producer of ‘Walk the Line’GLEN CAMPBELL…I’LL BE ME:

an epic human drama about the undying bond between Glen & his wife, Kim, the strength of true love, and the power of song. As music legend Glen Campbell enters the final stages of Alzheimer’s disease, his family is giving the world a rare glimpse inside his battle with the disease.
~A true tale of how America’s greatest country star would not give up his music or his family, against all odds.~
In 2011, when Glen Campbell, aka The Rhinestone Cowboy, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he joined forces with his family to fight the biggest battle of his life. Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the diagnosis – the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world. The Campbell family then embarked on a short “Goodbye Tour,” but the three-week engagement turned into an emotional and triumphant 151-show nationwide tour de force.  With joy and a tireless sense of humor, Glen and his family live each moment in the present while preparing for the future, all while playing their music to sold out venues on a star spangled voyage spanning the country from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl.
As a solo artist, Glen has recorded some of the most beloved songs of his generation including Gentle On My Mind, Galveston and Rhinestone Cowboy. He has been awarded five Grammy Awards and three Grammy Hall of Fame honors, seven Academy of Country Music awards, a Pioneer Award recognition, three American Music Awards, two Country Music Association Awards and three Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Glen Campbell has crossed the boundary between pop and country and transcended into a true musical icon. Glen Campbell’s musical and entertainment career, covering nearly five decades, is unmatched for its prolific breadth, popular appeal – and flat-out musical accomplishment and achievement. His guitar playing is legendary and can be heard on classic tracks from Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds, to Frank Sinatra’s, Strangers in the Night.
On Feb 12, 2012 Glen performed on the Grammy Awards, to an audience of 39 million people, and was given the distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award.
***The film features those who know and love Glen, including Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Taylor Swift among many others. Rare vintage footage and extraordinary new performances of Glen’s most beloved hits immerse this moving cinematic account in the overwhelming talent of this humble family man.***
