of God's Word. Younger kids will enjoy hearing

all ages with puzzles and jokes, and others with movie reviews and
creative activities. You can even find answers
to some of your most puzzling questions,
like "How do dinosaurs fit with the 6 days of Creation?" or "How do I

Also email me with suggestions of other sites that you think should be added on this list of Favorites, or on the
of safe websites. Just make sure that the site you want added is
wholesome and doesn't include
unsafe links or search boxes that could
lead to sites that don't help you follow the words of Philippians 4:8,
which should be every Christian's motto. It reads:
my friends, keep your minds on whatever is true, pure, right, holy,
friendly, and proper.
Don't ever stop thinking about what is truly
worthwhile and worthy of praise."
Yours for His pleasure,
ONLINE VIDEOS FOR KIDSJelly Telly -
My favorite Christian variety show (similar to the Muppets). It's from
the makers of Veggie Tales, but this one is designed to go deeper into
God's Word, yet it's still really fun for all ages. Most of their videos are no longer free to watch online (it now costs $5 a month after the 2 week free trial), however, you can still watch some for free at Jelly Telly video segments (on GodTube). When you do become a member, you'll not only have access to all of the over 300 Jelly Telly Shows, but also videos of such shows as Come on Over, The Pond and The Parables, along with a series by
Focus on the Family for older kids: Last Chance Detectives, and my all-time favorite from Insight for Living: Paws & Tales for younger kids. Plus, they also have Games that you can play online when you become a member, or for 2 weeks for free. Enjoy!
God's Family - My Favorite Animated Gospel Presentation.
Here you can watch a 5 minute animated cartoon of Pedro sharing the
gospel with Olivia who doesn't even know what a Bible is. Pedro tells
her that God loves every one of us, even when we do things we shouldn't
do. But I won't tell you how it ends, you'll have to watch it yourself –
it's very exciting.
Have fun sharing
this cartoon with your friends who have email and who may not know
Jesus. And be sure to check out their link that says "Already a part of
God's Family?" When you click on it, you can zoom in on their Guest Map
to find your street address and then click it to put a pin in it. And
you can add your name in the bubble that pops up to tell everyone you
are a part of God's Family!
The Story of Jesus for Children -
This 62-minute video introduces children to the life of Jesus, giving
them a chance to see and hear the whole story of Jesus at once, from a
child's perspective! The video answers questions in clear and concrete
terms, provides fast action, and ends with an invitation, by a child to
children, to choose to invite Jesus into their lives. There is also a Spanish version, as well as many other languages. You can even choose to watch it with open captioning of words at the bottom of the screen in English or Spanish (so you can read along as you watch).

Here's what one fan of King's Call had to say about it: "I
just played the King game... it was so great.
I loved how you were
trying to meet the king and the places that tempted you along the way
and how you were being chased by this evil dragon and the only way to
defeat him was to lay your weapons down and allow the shepherd to die in
your place. What an awesome adventure. Love it!!!!!"
