I'm Giving Away a Theo Presents DVD!

Theo: God's LoveI'm happy to share with you a new video series, Theo Presents from Whitestone Media which releases September 13th and "is centered around the adventures and teachings of the main character, Theo, a student of Godʼs Word. Theo lives in a cozy corner of a quaint English village and entertains many guests, including two mice, Belfry and Luther. The animation series of Theo guides children and adults through a careful study of systematic theology where Theo discusses doctrines about sin, Godʼs character, the Bible, salvation and godly living with easy-to-understand illustrations which make children want to learn more about the Christian faith."

Theo Presents is the dream and mission of Michael Jones. Mike, "worked for studios such as Hanna Barbera, Filmation, Warner Brothers and Marvel Productions as an animator, storyboard artist, character designer and writer. In 1988 Michael left Marvel to start his own animation company, Mike Jones Productions where he produced and directed animated commercials for toy companies such as Milton Bradley, Hasbro, Kenner, McDonaldʼs and Playskool. In addition to commercial work, he produced and directed the animation segments for the award-winning video series 'McGee and Me,' as well as the animated 'Adventures in Odyssey' for Focus on the Family. Theo Presents is a new series dedicated to teaching children Godʼs Word, upon a pulpit of cartoon animation. It is Mikeʼs hope God will use Theo to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to children and adults in every country of the world!"

I found the animation in Theo Presents to be excellent, colorful and sure to capture the attention of children and adults alike, and most importantly, the content is solid. These dvds provide excellent opportunities for you to share God's Word, His love and His plan of salvation with the children in our ministries as it explains things simply and accurately. In addition, there are two features I especially appreciate - parent pages and the "buy one, give one" campaign! On the Theo website, you will find free downloadable parent pages you may use to help parents know how to help their children understand the point of each DVD. You will find application questions and activities for families to work on together! I love the parent pages! One more plus . . . you will find free coloring pages on the website which you can print for your children to color! Whitestone Media has teamed up with LifeWay to produce curriculum for elementary children to compliment the Theo series.

As for the "buy one, give one" campaign; for every Theo DVD purchased, Whitestone Media and Child Evangelism Fellowship® will send a child in need their very own copy of Theo. You can log onto after making your own purchase, and select the region of the world where you'd like another copy of Theo to be sent.

Now for a "freebie" and a give-away . . . you'll find a FREE app (available now for iPhone and iPad): and I'm happy to say Whitestone Media has made an additional copy of Theo Presents available for me to give away on About the Children's Department!
