The Gift of Love: A giveaway and review- Closed

This giveaway is closed, be sure to check back often for more great contests!


I was given a chance to review a new Christmas Dvd. The Gift of Love is a Christmas story and art lessons. What a great way to blend home school art and Christmas together. I know each year when I am choosing gifts for my family, I like to sneak in few educational things. This Dvd would make a great gift. I can even recommended this gift for an unbelieving family, as there is a bonus feature of a beautiful, clear 7 minute gospel presentation. I cannot think of a nicer thing than to spend time with our loved ones creating real Christmas art in this busy season. This will be one our new traditions.



It begins with a ten minute video illustrated by a chalk drawing. This Biblically sound movie is enhanced by an artist drawing different portions of the nativity. I appreciated the soft background music. After the movie celebrating the birth of Jesus, there are three art lessons that would be appropriate for ages 6 and up. My personal favorite is the Creative Lettering with Heidi Shorts. I enjoyed the way she blended history, art and the Bible. It is clear that each of the instructors have a heart for God as they teach. The second lesson captivated my hubby as he was walking by. 


This Dvd alone is available for $14.99. It also has a bonus pack for 24.99 that includes a black-light, which is used in the lessons(you do not have to have it, but the effect is cool). The Gift of Love Deluxe pack has the Dvd, the black-light and the fluorescent crayons used in the lessons. It is available directly from See the Light Art.


See The Light Drawing Children to Him is a company that even has an online art club. I am not familiar with it, but from the quality of this Dvd, I expect more Christ honoring lessons. Here is a little more about the company from their website:


Other DVD components include a creative and dramatic presentation of the plan of salvation called “Know the Light” and an immersive and worshipful multi-sensory segment featuring original music called “Celebrate the Light,“ making the DVD perfect for co-viewing with parent or teacher and child. Featured online are downloadable drawing lessons and an exclusive art club, where children will be exposed to various art techniques. The creativity continues as draw-along printouts extend the fun and learning beyond the DVD. This series is appropriate not just for families at home but also as supplementary curriculum in churches and schools.

Hi Terri! Austin and I would love a chance to work with this Art program. Art seems to be one of his favorite subjects at the moment, especially since we attended the amazing Art class this fall at Christ Chapel. In fact, as I write this comment, he is using Barry Stebbings paints at the kitchen table to create a Star Wars masterpiece!
