When Lydia was one, I bought The Very First Noel movie for her. We had just set up our Christmas tree, our stockings were hung by the chimney with care and I popped the Very First Noel DVD into the player while she ate breakfast. She turned around to me with bright eyes and said excitedly, “Is it Christmas today?!”
*sniff* I wish I could bottle that innocence.
Since then, it has been our favorite Christmas movie by far. I love it so much, I suggest buying and watching the Very First Noel on day 22 of Truth in the Tinsel because it fits perfectly. I even wrote myself a sticky last December that has been on my computer all year that says EMAIL EXCLAIM ABOUT TRUTH IN THE TINSEL!
Finally, I did (hoping they’d do a giveaway or a coupon code or something) and lo and behold, one of the executives from Exclaim Entertainment CALLED ME BACK! I talked to him for more than thirty minutes about The Very First Noel, children’s ministry, blogging and more. I was so inspired by how passionate he was about getting quality God-centered entertainment into the hands of parents and kids. He wants to do exactly what I want to do–equip parents to raise kids to love Jesus!
The only place you can get The Very First Noel now is on their website.
Another of my favorite Exclaim resources is from Boz the Bear. It’s called WowieBOZowee Christmas!
Have you heard of Boz? We kind of love him around here. The Boz videos focus on simple concepts like colors, shapes, imagination and family with an obvious Biblical worldview. They are the perfect example of impressing your kids in your everyday life like Deuteronomy 6 commands.
Wowie-Boz-owie is a fun Christmas video with songs about snow, lessons about giving, family traditions and of course, the greatest story, Jesus’ birth. We have already watched this movie twice this year (it was our first Christmas movie of the season) and I love it more each time we watch it.
Grab your kids and watch this little video clip…
Fun, right? Not to mention all the extras Exclaim have on their website with coloring sheets, lesson ideas and more. They truly want to empower parents!
You’ll wanna add WowieBozowee to your Christmas movie collection!
