 About "Saving Faith" -
Meet Theo, a kind English gentleman who knows a lot about the truths of God?s word. Theo is a theologian, and in this episode he teaches us what it means to have faith. There are many things people can believe in, but not all things are faith-worthy. To illustrate a life dedicated to believing in the right thing, Theo shares the example of Abraham. The Lord had favor with Abraham, and because of his faith he was greatly blessed. Coming Sept 13, 2011
 About Bonus Episode "Good News" -
In this bonus episode, Theo shares the good news – the gospel. He explains that we all fall short because of a problem called sin. All human beings have sinned and are in desperate need of a Savior. Jesus Christ is the Savior that came to redeem mankind from our sin which separates us from God. We must accept this free gift of salvation in order to have eternal life. Free Download!

Our Thoughts -

Funny thing, my daughters' first comment at the beginning was that the mice in the opening scene reminded them of the mice in Cinderella.   I think that is a bonus, familiarity helps children associate more with the show, to feel a familiarity to it.

I thought both of the cartoons were adorable.  Seriously!  Very cute and entertaining and endearing.  I just loved it.  The bonus episode portrayed the Good News of the Gospel in such a sweet and simple way.  My prayer is that many souls will be saved after viewing.   Saving Faith shares the story of Abraham and Sarah and the tremendous amount of faith they placed in their Lord God.  Oh, that I might have the faith of Abraham.

After viewing, I asked my daughters what they thought.  Let me tell you, if they don't like something - they will let me know without hesitation.  So this is a compliment of compliments.  My oldest said, "It was good.  But if something is going to be that good, it ought to be longer."  Too cute.  She was enjoying it so much, that she wasn't ready for it to end."

I am so excited about this series and can't wait to see what they will come up with next.  May God bless Michael Joens in this new adventure.
