Disclosure: This post is NOT sponsored by Lamplighter and I did NOT receive any financial compensation for this post. I love the Lamplighter company and products and wanted to share them with you. I asked Lamplighter if they would send me an audio-drama to give to one of you because I wanted to gift one of my readers and they very generously obliged!
Lamplighter Audio Dramas
Each year we get the kids a lamplighter audio drama for Christmas. We have been doing this for a couple of years now and they love them. They each have CD players in their room and anytime they are in their room they have a “story” on. They listen to them OVER and OVER and OVER!
Every time we are in the car, they want to listen to one. Last year for Christmas we even joined the lamplighter club and had one mailed to us each month, and the kids looked forward to it every time. We now have every single one of their audio dramas. The first time I purchased I was a little nervous about spending $30 on a story, but quickly realized that it is absolutely worth the investment! If you have never listened to a lamplighter story, their audio dramas are not just a story being read, but it’s a movie you listen to with all the amazing sound effects and acting. They are definitely top notch and high quality. (You can listen to samples on their website)
Each story is a rare old book that has been adapted for the audio drama, and each book teaches Christlike character through an entertaining story. I’ve known for a long time that we were loyal lamplighter customers, but just recently the loyalty was solidified even further. I was in the kitchen and I overheard my daughter explaining the difference between certain character traits to one of her siblings, by using examples from the stories. (faithful like Betty and loyal like Will) WOW! She was able to clearly distinguish different traits ALL BECAUSE of listening to the lamplighter audio-dramas and using particular stories as an example to her brothers. I’m sold. They deliver Christ-Like character traits in a captivating story form.
There are many times when the plot of the audio-dramas come up in our conversation and we are able to discuss aspects of the story as we are building our family culture of conversations. Listening to the same ideas and stories provides a platform for some really good conversations and diccussions as a family.
You really can’t go wrong with investing in these audio-dramas.
Like I said, we have them all, and they are all good. So it is really hard for me to pick a favorite to recommend. I polled my family and we all have a different favorite (if you can even pick one!)
So here are our top picks:
Farris Family Top Lamplighter Picks
Again-don’t read too much into that list because we really like them all!
Spending time as a family listening to themes of hope, repentance, and redemption are played out through Lamplighter Theatre is a great way to spend road trips together! Lamplighter stories are full of endearing characters, perilous predicaments, and twisting plots, all of which serve to highlight the redemptive work of Jesus and the value of God’s Word.
