ST. PATRICK’S DAY – Patrick “FULL LENGTH” Movie

ST. PATRICK’S DAY “full length” MOVIE A REVIEWER SAYS… “This made for television movie is entertaining, inspiring, and educational. St. Patrick is one of the most well know, yet least “known about” significant personalities in world history. God used Patrick to transform Ireland and Ireland’s influence helped shape the world. The story starts with Patrick as a reckless youth, captured by slave traders. In slavery to a Irish Warlord he has a Divine encounter that grows into a holy passion for God. He is miraculously delivered from Ireland and returns to his family. Back in his British homeland He hears the call of God to return as a missionary to Ireland. Despite numerous obstacles, he refuses to let go of the heavenly vision and soon returns to Irish soil as the Bishop of Ireland. Through power encounters with the druid priests and a servants heart of love for the Irish people, Patrick becomes the catalyst for a spiritual awakening. Patrick Bergen’s portrayal of St. Patrick is convincing and compelling. Malcolm McDowell ideally personifies the religious hierarchical antagonists who oppose Patrick. The special effects leave something to be desired but they do not take away from the powerful and moving story of St. Patrick. I highly recommend this movie to all those looking for inspiring family entertainment.” You can RENT it streaming on AMAZON for $2.99 –http://bit.ly/stpatrickmovie WATCH IT FREE on YOUTUBE –...

4th of July Videos for Families

4th of July Videos for Families

Families like to be reminded every 4th of July about how we actually gained our independence as a country. It is not just about flags, fireworks, and food. Our freedom cost so much more! To get a good understanding of the beginning of our nation, I feel that the best video to start with would be Monumental. Kirk Cameron did an excellent job of researching and presenting the things that are so often overlooked in curriculum and classes. After filling your brain with this knowledge, then you can move on to other videos.  As with ALL historical videos, you should check the facts when you finish watching and discuss the differences (of what are true facts, and what is not) together as a family. Here is my TOP LIST of 4th of July Videos for Families: DOCUMENTARIES – Kirk Cameron – Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure. (Netflix INSTANT) (Amazon INSTANT) Drive Thru History – Discovering America’s Founding Fathers (Netflix DVD)(ITBN – Online) Drive Thru History – American History PART 1 (You Tube) PART 2 (You Tube) America: The Story of Us (Netflix INSTANT) Have Fun With History videos (WEBSITE)   New Dimension Media VIDEO SHORTS – George Washington – 10min (Amazon INSTANT) George Washington at Valley Forge – 11min (Amazon INSTANT) Long Knives – 29min (Amazon INSTANT) Pioneer Life in Revolutionary America – 16 min (Amazon INSTANT) Family and Work in Revolutionary America – 20min (Amazon INSTANT) Social Class in Revolutionary America – 20min (Amazon INSTANT) Values in Revolutionary America – 21min (Amazon INSTANT) The Making of America’s Presidency – 13min (Amazon INSTANT) Betsy Ross Makes a Flag – 10min (Amazon INSTANT)...
