I ran across the website www.jellytelly.com today. I first heard about this website a few years ago when one of my Children's Ministry classes took a field trip to the Conspire conference at Willow Creek church in Chicago (the best field trip EVER!). At that point the site was Phil Vischer's (creator of Veggie Tales) attempt to provide an online Christian programming network for children. His dream was that it would become like a Christian "Nickelodean". However at that point it was in the beginning stages and required a monthly subscription. As a college student I didn't have money to subscribe to anything monthly, so I filed this tidbit away in the back of my mind with the many other things I learned that I couldn't quite put into practice at that point.
Now I pulled the file out of the back of my mind and paid the website a visit. I discovered that they are now sponsored by Focus on the Family and the service is free! It has grown quite a bit and has many entertaining yet insightful clips, and even full length episodes of some of my childhood favorites like "Adventures in Odyssey" and "Last Chance Detectives".

I now have a fun place to look for video illustrations to emphasize my points in Sontown, as well as entertaining but accurate answers to tough questions that children ask.
