New Veggie Tales DVD Giveaway

 I'm excitied to be able to offer another dvd giveaway. This time we have Veggie Tales: The Little House That Stood.  We got our preview copy in the mail just a couple days ago and Nate was so excited!  You know how kids are, they hardly ever get "real" mail so it is pretty special when they get a package.  So we sat down and watched the dvd immediately!

 


The Wise Pig Built His House Upon the Rock! When the Three Little Pigs roll into Cabbageville looking to build some new houses, they meet one builder with a plan and two without a clue! Larry builds with hay, Mr. Lunt with bricks, but only Bob builds his houses on a firm foundation - following the wise plans from the Master Builder's Handbook!" Will the Little Piggies make the right choices when it comes to building their houses - and their lives - on solid ground? Find out in this parable that shows kids when they follow God's blueprints, they can stand strong when the storms come! PLUS! Ever wonder what happened before Humpty cracked? Find out in this very Veggie retelling of the classic Humpty Dumpty story "The Good Egg of Gooseville" where we learn that a good neighbor always "lends a little hand" to those in need.

 As usual Nate was captivated by the characters, story and songs of the movie, as he has been with the other Veggie Tales movies we've seen (and own a lot of them).  I loved hearing the message of Luke 6:46-49 about building on a strong foundation presented in a very kid friendly way.  It is getting more difficult to find quality kid and family shows/movies. It is rare to find a movie or show that is does not have questionable words or content anymore.  Much less one that actually shares our values.  I look forward to enjoying this and other Veggie Tales movies as a family for years to come.

Here is what Nate had to say about The Little House That Stood: "I thought it was awesome." Then after some prompting he followed up with: "I think it will help kids to be nice to others and have a big firm thing under what they make."  I asked him what he would tell people who had never heard of the movie and he said: "I would tell them to get their parents to buy the movie for them and to not listen to the advertisements for toys."  Can you tell we've had conversations about commercials?  We often remind him that the sole purpose of commercials is to convince us to buy things (often things we do not need).  Glad to hear that at least some of what we tell him is sinking in.  ;-)

I am excited to be able to give a copy of Veggie Tales The Little House That Stood to one lucky reader!  The giveaway will be open until St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) and Rafflecopter will choose a winner at random.



He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.  Luke 6:48
