GIVEAWAY ENDED -- CONGRATS TO STELLA M.!!!!

 

You probably know the beloved Bible story of Noah's Ark?  But have you seen it come to life with a bunch of vegetables?  Thanks to the upcoming VeggieTales: Noah's Ark DVD release on March 3rd you can. :-)  And, if seeing everyone's favorite VeggieTales characters like Larry and Bob aren't enough, you will find yourself singing along to some catchy new songs that will have you tapping your feet and singing along to.

My family loves VeggieTales movies are they are a great way to teach the girls about God and the Bible in a fun and entertaining way.  Because they can't read yet, we rely on faith based movies like these share the messages of the Bible in this way.  And, we find that after we watch one of these movies, the girls are full of questions, as well as commenting on how much fun the stories were and how they can't wait to watch it again.  This was the same with this upcoming release.  We have only had it for about a week now, but have already watched it half a dozen times. 

When it came to talking to the girls about the movie and what was shared, we found ourselves talking about how plans we sometime make plans for ourselves only to find something else happens.  This is God showing us in his own way that he had other plans (oftentimes better) for us.  In addition, we talked about dealing with personal struggles or difficult times and how they will not last forever, even though at that moment you may not see an end in sight.  Through this cute story, we were able to show how God is always by our side and looking out for us.  We have to trust in God and know that he will help guide us and get us through even the toughest of times. 

There are some many great discussions families can have together after watching this and other VeggieTales movies. And, depending on your child's age, you can bring the Bible into the discussions.  This movie really does tie the following Psalm to the Noah's Ark story perfectly: 

“Trust in Him at
all times, you
people; pour out
your hearts
before Him. God
is our refuge” (Psalm
62:8). 

By trusting God, you will find that he will look out for you and help you through even the toughest of times.  I am so happy I was able to share the story of Noah's Ark through the telling of the VeggieTales characters.  Now, whenever my girls see an arc or boat they are quick to tell my husband and I about the different animals Noah and his family had on board.  

If your family is a fan of VeggieTales and has a growing collection like my family, then you will want to pick up a copy of VeggieTales: Noah's Ark when it arrives on DVD on March 3rd.  This is definitely one re-telling of Noah's Ark that you family will not want to miss. :-)


More about this movie:

Carrots meet cubits as VeggieTales builds an ark filled with fun, adventure and important lessons about trusting God in NOAH’S ARK, its first Bible-themed production in more than four years. Starring Wayne Brady and Jaci Velasquez, along with Larry the Cucumber, Bob the Tomato and a whole crew of Veggies, NOAH’S ARK will be available March 3 on DVD and digital download.


In NOAH'S ARK, Brady, the multi-Emmy® award-winning host of one of TV’s most famous game shows, Let’s Make a Deal, and star of Whose Line Is It Anyway, brings to life Noah’s son Shem, who first questions, then learns to embrace, his father’s direction from God. Christian singer, actress and radio host Jaci Velasquez co-stars as Shem’s wife, Sadie.

“Saying ‘yes’ to VeggieTales was a no-brainer – my daughter’s a fan and I love the music and messages,” says Brady, who performs seven original songs in NOAH’S ARK. “The best part is, Bob and Larry are down to earth and they never let the ‘I’m a global Veggie superstar’ thing go to their heads.”

Adds Velasquez: “Every parent searches for entertainment that’s both wholesome and imparts valuable life lessons, and with Noah’s Ark,VeggieTales serves up a delicious dish on both counts. The story, the music and the visuals are perfect for the entire family.”

In NOAH’S ARK, Shem and Sadie return home from their honeymoon to find that Noah (played by Pa Grape) has begun, at God’s direction, to work on a massive ark, which his wife Naamah (played by Madame Blueberry) and sons Ham (played by Larry) and Japheth (played by Bob) are helping construct before the start of 40 days and 40 nights of rain.

But Shem doesn’t understand Noah’s unshakable faith in God, particularly when animals start arriving two-by-two – while the rain is nowhere to be seen. When the deluge does come, Shem begins to understand Noah’s determination to preserve humanity’s future … and the importance of trusting in God.

NOAH’S ARK also features a brand-new “Silly Songs With Larry” segment, in which Larry dons a safari outfit as he goes on a quest for a gigantic, golden egg.

Less than three weeks after the DVD and digital download release of NOAH’S ARK, the VeggieTales excitement continues when five all-new episodes of VeggieTales In The House, the hit animated series, debut exclusively on Netflix – bringing the total of VeggieTales In the House episodes to 15 as the series continues its first season.

To learn more about NOAH’S ARK, and to pre-order the DVD, visit the official VeggieTales website at http://www.veggietales.com, or call the toll-free VeggieTales Hotline at (844) 2-VEGGIE (U.S. callers only)."
