First of all, let me say that I received this DVD, "Who is in Charge Anyway?", by Max Lucado, free from Thomas Nelson's publishers, as part of their BookSneeze.com book review blogger's program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255, "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
There—with that said, here is my honest review. It is a sweet story about how God cares for everyone. When Freddie hears Hailey and Bailey ask their mother what is special about fleas, Freddie decides it is time to have a talk with God. The DVD shows flashbacks of other garden characters in their youth, and Freddie learns that God did not make anyone by accident, and that God is not finished with us, yet. It features the voice talents of Tim Conway as “Hermie”, and Sam Mercurio. This lesson is based on Psalm 90:16. The actual DVD runs about 30 minutes, plus has bonus features that are fun, too!
We really enjoyed watching this DVD! Although I am familiar with Max Lucado’s books, this is the first time we have been introduced to Hermie and his friends. We (mom, and 2 boys--one age 7, and one age 9 –with Down Syndrome) started watching the DVD, and pretty soon, 2 other older boys joined in, and we were all laughing! It teaches a wonderful lesson, that God has a special plan for each of us, and He can use us in different ways—even if it’s just telling others about God’s love for us.
