DVD Review and Giveaway: Really Woolly Kids Trusting in the Shepherd


This is a new DVD by DaySpring.  It features two stories about facing fear and learning to trust in Jesus, our Shepherd.  The theme verse for both stories is Psalm 23:4 (NLT), "Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid for You are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me."

In the first story, "Gracie's Ewe Scout  Campout," Gracie, the six year old lamb, is scared of the darkness at night during her Ewe Scout's campout.  Her grandma teaches her and her friends about Psalm 23:4/the Shepherd's protection.  Grandma Tabitha is a hip grandma with an iPhone and is not shy about dancing :).  In the second story, "Jacob's New Friend," Jacob (Gracie's brother), the seven year old lamb, faces fear and anxiety because of a new huge kid in school whom he accidentally pounces on.  His dad wisely advises him to look on the bright side and reminds him that he needs not to be afraid because our Shepherd is with us to guide and protect us. 
 
My 9 year old boy and I watched the DVD together.  Both of us enjoyed it.  The theme song, "Fear Not" is catchy, but the intro sounds very similar to a song from Jonah (VeggieTales).  The extra features include outtakes, deleted scene, trivia questions, sing-along song, and online Family Adventures info.  This is a cute, fun DVD that helps children learn God's Word and apply it in their daily life.  It's geared towards ages 6-12 but I think some younger kids would enjoy it, too.

You can watch the "Fear Not" music video at http://www.reallywoollykids.com/ .

Hey Gal! I read your post DVD Review on The Way Home. It definiteloy sounds like something I would like. Dean Cain is such an intense actor. I feel so bad that it takes something as horrific as a missing child to bring some people to their senses about priorities. What is so hard about learning GOD FIRST, FAMILY SECOND and everything else last? I am definitely going to keep a look out for this DVD. My heart ached for this family. I watched your video twice with tears streaming down my face. I think every one with children, men and women alike should be required to watch this dvd as preventative measures.
God Bless,
PJ

I tweeted twice. Once to say why I wanted to win, andthe the second to tell who was having the give-away! LOL!

God Bless,

I just discovered your blog today. I read your 7 minute difference. I think I could almost do that. Wednesday is "movie day" with the grandkids. Babysitting them full time is harder than I thought!

Luke 1:28 - this is where the "Hail Mary" prayer comes from. We use this prayer when we are upset or fearful. We prayed it a lot right after our car accident a year ago.

Thanks for the entry!

This is a verse that comforts me when I am fearful...

Deuteronomy 31:6
"Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you."

Thank you for such a great giveaway!
