I LOVE nap time. Actually, I LOVE Abigail, but I really like naptime. Especially when I get to take a nap (there are days it's a neccessity-- like when I had too much caffeine last night and didn't get to sleep until almost 2am!).
Anyhow, recently I was sitting at my computer after I had put Abigail to bed for her afternoon nap. I was surfing away, when I heard the sweetest thing in the world! My baby girl was in her room singing, "Jesus loves me this I know... for the Bible tells me so... little ones to Him belong, they are weak but He is strong." It is just beautiful to hear the innocence and faith of a 2.5 yr old singing about Jesus. I love it!
Right now, she's talking.. to herself, to her baby dolls or to Dora, I don't know. I do know that all too soon these days will be gone and I will miss her sweet little voice and face! Thank you God for the gift of Abigail!
Word of Promise Next Generation New Testament MP3 Set is the entire New Testament for a younger, plugged-in generation.
It is a wonderful outreach to the young people of today. It employs the voices of several well-known young actors and actresses as well as dramatized reading and background sounds that draw a young person in to the Scriptures and what is being spoken.
I think it’s geared more toward tweens than older youth with the actors such as Cody Linley (Hanna Montana) as Jesus, AnnaSophia Robb (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as Mary Magdalene, Cobin Bleu (High School Musical) as Peter, Alyson Stoner (Cheaper by the Dozen) as Martha, and narrated by Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings).
I have two tween daughters and they were both excited to see Word of Promise Next Generation New Testament MP3 Set come into the house just because of the people that are involved in the project. Now, I just hope they will listen to it!!
This set includes 24 hours of audio drama on 3 mp3 CDs and a bonus 75 minute Behind-the-Scenes DVD featuring interviews with the actors. It also includes informative book introductions by author Max Lucado and his daughter, Jenna Lucado, who is a speaker on the Revolve® Tour.
It would be a great gift for the young person in your life who is serious about the Word of God and is a normal teen too!
