Welcome to another Faith for Kids find here at Momma Findings. I, am constantly, finding new DVDs, books, or tools to help my children grow spiritually. Although young, I know that God is molding their little hearts with each day and I can only hope that I can aid in that process as best as God allows me to.
Wit that said, I came across the CUTEST VeggieTales DVD the other day and I, instantly, knew that my daughter would love it. She’s a little older now, but enjoys sitting with her younger brother when he watches VeggieTales. If you’re Veg Heads like us, you’ll love Big Idea Entertainment’s newest DVD VeggieTales Princess and the Popstar. It’s a story all about trading places. Been there?
Princess Poppyseed’s life on her family’s farm is far from the glamorous but lonely world of her favorite pop singer Vanna Banana. On a chance meeting at a playground, Vanna and Princess cross paths and realize that they look almost exactly alike—which leads to the crazy secret plan where they decide to switch lives! As each girl realizes that the life they longed for doesn’t fulfill all of their dreams, they learn that the life God gave them is the one for which they were uniquely and lovingly designed.
My youngest son is a bit of a dreamer. He’s always making claims that his friends or neighbors are “luckier” than us because they have a pool or a better bike. I remember feeling SO heartbroken, when we came home from a long day of family fun and he says, “We NEVER get to do anything fun. I’m SO not a lucky kid.”
My husband and I sat with my son that night explaining God has molded each and every one of our lives perfectly. Yes. The neighbor has a pool, but we have fun stuff too like an XBOX and a Wii. We get to go to fun events at SeaWorld and iT’Z. We even get to go on boat rides.
I then told him, “If you switched places with the neighbor do you think you’d miss us? Do you think you’d miss your brother and sister? What about your room and all your toys? What about when you and I tell stories under the quilt with a flashlight? Honey, you are so blessed and THIS life is the life He has planned for you.”
That’s the premise of Princess and the Pop Star. They long to be someone else, only to learn that the life they had is the life God designed for them. Definitely a must see if your child has ever told you they wished to be someone else or have what they have.
VeggieTales Princess and the Pop Star is now available on DVD at Christian retailers as of August 13th and debuts everywhere, such as Amazon.com, on August 16th for the suggested retail price of $14.99.
