#disneymusic  #enmnetwork

I was so happy to get a chance to review these cd's! My daughter loves the Frozen, but I as a child of the 70's and 80's LOVE the Guardians of the Galaxy. I have been listening to it since I got it! The change to the tunes for the music, make it fun to listen to over and over! 
My daughter has the Frozen CD in her room. Only so many times I can tolerate, "Let it Go." I am only human! But with her headphones, it makes it alot more tolerable. She's happy and so am I!
Disney junior DJ Shuffle: The songs are short enough to keep a little person interested, and just long enough to NOT annoy the parent who is listening as well!
Into the woods is a 2 CD set. its the full soundtrack to the movie and comes with a booklet with the words.

These would make perfect additions to any Easter Basket or for any gift.

Confessions of A Prodigal Son: A movie you didnt think you wanted to see but are glad you did!

What story is your life telling?
I was allowed a special screening, and offered monetary compensation, of the movie Confessions of a Prodigal Son in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way.
Confessions of a Prodigal Son is a modern-day retelling of the Prodigal Son story that Jesus famously told. 
See the full trailer HERE on YouTube
This will be released on DVD on March 24, 2015 and will be available at stores such as WalMart.
It is a coming-of-age tale following Sean (Nathan Clarkson) as he rebels and leaves his home, family and father (Kevin Sorbo formerly known as Hercules) to figure out life on his own. Two years later--while still on the journey to find life's answers--Sean suddenly finds himself questioning everything he thought he knew as he is confronted by a professor (Darwin Harris) who challenges Sean to see his life as a story; a best friend (Azel James) walking a dangerous path; and a strong and beautiful young woman (Rachael Lee) who is on her own journey to answers. Each one of these elements causes Sean to greater examine the choices he is making.
The story is one of drama, laughter, relationships, faith, and redemption, ultimately asking the question "Can broken stories have happy endings?"

One quote from the movie that really stuck with me was this:

**The day we recognize our life is a story, we begin to hear all these voices for the first time. Each one calling out to us telling us the different stories we could tell and the different characters we could become. I think one of the hardest choices is to decide which ones to listen to.**
I can fully appreciate both sides of the characters in this movie. Hearing the story straight out of the Bible growing up I always kinda scoffed at the meaning. As a woman in her early 20's I started to understand the meaning. I was almost like the main character. Stubborn, defiant and thinking I knew it all. Thank god my parents were there for me when reality hit and I needed them. Now as a parent, I can feel the love that I know my parents had for me when I look at my own children. No matter what they do could make me love them less. 
Visit the Facebook page.

While the movie has it slow parts, and it did throw me on a few flash backs, it did move along as the story should and kept my interest. The characters were believable and you could feel the emotions as they passed through the screen. 

I will be adding this to my DVD collection.

This set would make the PERFECT Easter Gift! Add this to a couple of treats that you would give your child and make a cute basket. In our home we do not do the Easter Bunny. I have stuck with the no Easter Bunny thing with all the kids. Yes we give chocolate bunnies and such, but we try to keep the reason for the season up front. Thats what makes this gift set the best! Plus, its a gift that keeps giving. Not only the book, to read over and over, but the doll to play with and to keep in a childs mind about Jesus. My 7yo's, love to play with the book and the doll. Yes they are boys. My 9 yo daughter will read the book to them and they actually listen.
The words are child friendly, small and short. The pictures are drawn to appeal to everyones attention, even adults.

Imagine your children took the same interest and wonder in Jesus and the Christian message as they did in princesses, fairies, and elves… Jesus Sees Us is a packaged Jesus Christ doll that has the same comforting power as a child’s favorite toy or blanket, but is rooted in lessons that last a lifetime. Children respond to the comfort of tangible items when they are young, so why not make that item Jesus and the comfort He gives to ignite their faith? The accompanying book is a tool to assist you in engaging your child and starting the conversation about Jesus’ teachings.

By the time a child turns three years old, he or she already has the capability to relate to Jesus. Children can understand that, like them, Jesus was a baby with parents who loved Him. They can understand that Jesus grew up to be a man who loved everyone and taught people to do the same. Children become excited and inquisitive when they can master these facts, ultimately making them more open to deeper conversations and ideas about faith.


The Jesus Sees Us doll is an integral part of fostering your child’s initial introduction to Jesus. Even though we talk to our children about Jesus or take them to Sunday services, they are not always able to understand the importance of the Christian message. Jesus Sees Us is a tool that makes Jesus, His teachings, and the concept of faith both relatable and positive to young children by introducing Him as the loving and forgiving presence in our lives. The doll becomes the tangible connection to the stories and lessons in the book. He is the touchable source of comfort that a child can relate to. The Jesus Sees Us doll has a soft body and a warm, welcoming face. His arms and hands are open, inviting your child to hold him, engage with him, and pray with him. The Jesus Sees Us doll allows your child to “play out” the valuable and timeless lessons of the Bible.
