This review is a long time coming. I received this series of dvds just before we moved a couple of years ago and, in the process, it was packed, overlooked, etc. It was kept in a box with other things I knew I’d want right away when we finally settled in enough to unpack and we finally watched this dvd series the first winter after we moved to our new house. (Wow, two winters here already?!) Of course, things were still topsy-turvy as I tried to find our basic homeschool supplies and manage that and all things domestic in a place much MUCH smaller than we had before. Also, we didn’t have Internet connection that first winter and whenever we’d visit the library, this review was the last thing on my mind. Many times I had forgotten to bring my laptop with me so I didn’t have my rough drafts/notes anyway. This series served us well in another way in that it provided us a Sunday sermon for a few Sundays in a row. Our move brought us more than a hundred miles away from our home church and there were (are) no churches to fit our beliefs out here…so “home church” needed some variation and good resources.

I don’t remember specific quotes or anecdotes directly from the film series since it’s been a while. I do remember it is about “Christian Hedonism.” Basically, doing as God says…loving Him with all your heart, mind, soul and strength. Seek to enjoy Him to the fullest in all areas of your life. And, unlike sinful humanistic ways of hedonism in various areas of life, there isn’t ever any way that you can love God, enjoy God or get too much of God. The older children and I probably received more edification and teaching from it than the younger members of the family but there were some good explanations and anecdotes that did catch their attention and kept them interested for the most part. It is definitely a series that I’ll keep around and have everyone view again.
