Franklin Springs Family Media

Are you interested in family-friendly, God-honoring films but just cannot find anything suitable for your family’s movie night? We were constantly hitting the eject button as we watched DVDs, but that all changed last December. A home education group sent my family an email with a link to Franklin Springs Family Media. At the time they were running a Christmas special. So, with great expectations, I bought their movie 10-pack. 

Every film has been wonderful. Not only are we entertained while watching the films, we are educated and inspired. For example, included in our 10-pack DVD collection, are stories about an American hero, musically gifted Christian families, a look at agrarian lifestyles, an upright historical figure, and a father and son building project. 
Entertainment, education, and inspiration–all wrapped up in each story. Wow!

Do consider watching any of these films at FSFM. You certainly will get your money’s worth. If we want to continue seeing quality films of this  nature, we need to show our support. So, rent or buy a couple DVDs. You will be delighted!

What about this contest? We were first introduced to the West Ladies in Inherit the Land: Adventures on the Agrarian Journey and A Journey Home. Since their appearances in these two documentaries, the West Ladies have grown in popularity among those wishing to get back to a simpler way of life. Their recent projects have included Homestead Blessings DVDs that teach ordinary folks the arts of bread making, soap making, and candle making.  

Franklin Springs Family Media is sponsoring a contest centered around these talented women…

Below are contest details taken from their site:
