Movie Review: Trusting in the Shepherd

There are two stories on this DVD.  The first is about Gracie's Ewe Scout Camp out at grandma's.  Gracie's brother Jacob convinces her that the night is scary and sure enough, she and her friends are nervous, but grandma tells them they need not fear because Jesus the Shepherd is looking out for them.  They sing songs about psalm 23 (the Lord is my Shepherd...)

The second is about Jacob's New Friend Drake, the new kid in school.  Jacob accidentally hits Drake while they are playing.  Thereafter, Jacob is afraid of Drake, because he thinks Drake wants to hurt him.  That is not the case, because Drake is actually grateful that Jacob has made him feel welcome.

The two lessons from these stories are to trust Jesus, and to treat others as you would like others to treat you.  Also, a lesson about forgiveness.

These stories are both both educational and entertaining for small children.   Very well done.
