Christmas Journey, A: About the Blessings God Gives
Ian and his sister, Stephy, have nothing to look forward to this Christmas. Tired of getting stuck with grumpy old Grandpa every year, they decide that this holiday is going to be different. When Ian and Stephy are invited to a Christmas party, the two set out to learn the truth about Christmas. Along the way, they meet a friendly angel, a kind old saint, and a special baby who show them that sometimes, the most meaningful gifts come from within.
“A Christmas Journey about the Blessings God Gives” also includes a bonus feature that teaches children about the symbols of Christmas. The DVD was animated by artist Scott Cawthon, whose independent children’s films available from Bridgestone Multimedia Group also include “Noah’s Ark: The Story of the Biblical Flood”, “The Pilgrim’s Progress”, “The Jesus Kids’ Club”, and the “Bible Plays” series.
Ian and his little sister Stephy, who live with their ornery grandfather, don’t have much of a Christmas to look forward to. Grandfather doesn’t see any need to celebrate the season much less the true meaning of the holiday. But, Ian is determined to seek out what Christmas really means for himself as well as for little Stephy. The children find themselves invited to a big Christmas party and set out for town hoping to learn more about Christmas.
Along their journey they meet a variety of characters- a soft spoken and helpful angel, St Nicholas, as well as a tiny little baby. Ian begins to realize what Christmas is and is not and with the help of a few of his new friends including the town mailman.
This charming Christmas tale has a wonderful blend of love, tenderness and forgiveness to remind the viewers of the true and lasting meaning of Christmas. Parents and children alike will enjoy this story and we happy to award the Dove Seal to this delightful tale.
