Today I'm sharing with you a DVD called "Being Kind & Caring" by Chuck Swindoll's Paws and Tales. I struggle A LOT with Christian DVDs. My opinions don't seem to match up with "normal" Christians viewpoints.
I have never heard of this series before and decided to give it a try. I loved the storyline and message behind this video. They were teaching on Matthew 18:21-22 and Matthew 6:14. The characters are really cute and I love the illustrations/art work of the video. My only complaint is - a few of the actors behind the voices sounded very obvious to me that they were reading it off a script. It didn't sound natural. In fact, I couldn't focus that well on the video because I kept noticing it. I was too busy picturing the actor behind a microphone reading a script. But all in all, it's a pretty good video. As a parent...I love it.
Now for my kids, well I don't know. I'm not a "normal" Christian where I ONLY show my kids Christian shows. This house is filled with Spongebob, Thomas the tank engine, Wow Wow Wubbzy, Blues Clues, etc. So this would not hold their attention at all, in fact my youngest fell asleep to it. I have checked out other reviews and they are excellent for this DVD.
According to FCC regulations, I received this free DVD from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review. This review is of my own thoughts and opinions.
My book review is of Sheila Walsh's "God Loves Broken People." I just love love love Sheila Walsh. I "discovered" her when I went to a Woman of Faith Conference 8 years ago.
This book is EXCELLENT! I love how she writes...it's as if she's sitting there talking to you over a cup of coffee. A very easy read I must say! We are not all perfect...many of us are broken and just trying to walk along like there is nothing wrong. Some of us need to be reminded...sometimes constantly...that God loves us and is there to heal us. Even her Introduction title is perfect..."It's Okay Not to be Okay." That just takes a weight off my shoulders! We Christians always seem to struggle with showing our weaknesses and areas we need help with. This book definitely helps with that. It's an encouraging and inspirational book and I highly recommend it! This is a book that will be a constant read in my home. What a blessing!
