DOLLY PARTON’S COAT OF MANY COLORS

unnamed-4

Growing up my mom loved Dolly and I did too! I loved her amazing voice and her bubbly personality! I’ve always loved that she was from a big family, I’m the youngest of 9! She always made me smile. She is not only an amazing singer but a fantastic actress! My favorite version of Baby its cold outside is the duet with Dolly and Rod Stewart, it seriously doesn’t get better than that!

Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors - Season 1

So, months ago when I heard that there was a new movie coming out about Dolly’s upbringing, I knew I wanted to see it. Over the years I had heard bits and pieces about her life as a young girl and her family but nothing like what the movie would bring! This is a beautiful movie perfect for the whole family. Have you ever wondered how Dolly went from “dirt poor” {her words} to where she is now? Or how she started singing? This tells the whole story and I highly recommend it! Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors was released on May 3, 2016

“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” is based on the inspiring true story of living legend Dolly Parton’s remarkable upbringing. This once-in-a-lifetime movie special takes place inside the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith and a raggedy patchwork coat that helped make Parton who she is today.

The film is set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955. It is neither a biopic nor a musical about Dolly’s whole life and performing career, but rather a family-oriented faith-based story about the incidents in her and her family’s life around the time she was nine years old.

Alyvia Alyn Lind will portray nine-year-old Dolly Parton, with Jennifer Nettles as Parton’s mother, Ricky Schroder as her father and Gerald McRaney as her grandfather.

“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” is written by Pamela K. Long. She executive produces with Sam Haskell and Dolly Parton. The film is a production of Magnolia Hill Entertainment and DP Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Season Four serves up sweet success for two of Brooklyn’s hottest waitresses, Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs), as they plan to strike it rich with their new cupcake T-shirt business! The shirts are selling like hot cakes, until a couple of unfortunate situations happen, and the two entrepreneurs are back at square one — and broke again. Love is in the air as Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge) and Oleg (Jonathan Kite) plan their wedding, with Max and Caroline as the bridesmaids and Earl (Garrett Morris) and Han (Matthew Moy) along for the ride. The girls still worry about ways to make money, but their friendship is worth a million bucks. Season Four also features appearances by guest stars Kim Kardashian West, Lily Aldridge and Sandra Bernard.

One of my personal favorite episodes is And The Reality Problem!

Our family was first introduced to What’s in the Bible? through the children’s director and dear friend at our former church a few years ago. From the first time our son saw What’s in the Bible he was HOOKED! Then we borrowed a DVD from and watched it as a family…and we ALL were hooked! Not only does What’s in the Bible? make understanding the Bible easy for kids, but it’s done in a really fun way! Phil Vischer and his staff has done a phenomenal job with these DVD’s! The knowledge our kids have gained is amazing, our oldest LOVES reading his bible so that he can increase his knowledge. In fact the kid is so smart he can easily enter into conversations with adults {both the What’s in the Bible? DVD and the fact his dad was a youth pastor and currently working towards a biblical degree, have contributed to our sons knowledge:)}

Our kids absolutely LOVE all the cute characters..and so do we!

My husband and I absolutely love that one of our favorite duos Rhett & Link {from Good Mythical Morning} sings fun songs…Like this one about Genesis in Vol. 1!

About Volume 1: In the Beginning

What’s in the Bible? Volume 1 is all about the beginning! It covers the book of Genesis and answers the following two questions:

IMG_4474

Volume 1 covers some of the most popular Bible stories from the book of Genesis like, the story of creation, Adam and Eve, Abraham, Noah’s Ark, and so much more! They are SO MUCH fun! I love that kids are engaged and having fun while they are learning!

What’s in the Bible? is the perfect whole family bible time for our mornings! My  husband works from home so we are able to enjoy and learn through What’s in the Bible? together!

How we use the What’s in the Bible curriculum in our home:

In addition to the DVD’s there are a whole bunch of fun activities! {images below are for What’s in the Bible Vol. 1}

guide

IMG_4502

The Discussion guide asks all kinds of questions to review what your learned during the DVD!

  • What does the word “Testament” mean?
  • How do we know the Bible is true?
  • What does the word “inspired” mean?
  • Do you remember the name of the first book of the Bible? What does it mean?
  • How do you trust God with your life?
  • Proverbs 3:5 says “Trust the Lord with all your heard and do not lean on your own understanding.” What are ways you can apply this to your daily life?

I just saved this to ibooks on my iPad instead of printing it out.

There are a bunch of really fun coloring pages that go with Volume 1 like:

  • Volume 1 DVD Cover Coloring page
  • Adam and Eve
  • Cain and Abel
  • Abraham {Abraham and Isaac}
  • Noah’s Ark

I made each of the kids their very own coloring book!!

Flash

IMG_4512

These flashcards are AWESOME! They will help you and your kids remember all kinds of wonderful and important things from the DVD, such as:

  • What’s in the Bible?
  • How many books are in the Bible?
  • How many years did it take to write the Bible?

The Flash cards are really easy to make! Print, Cut out the cards horizontally {you will end up folding the cards so be sure you only cut on the horizontal lines}, Fold and tape together or if you want to get really fancy laminate them!!IMG_4476

The flash cards are my oldest sons favorite! I even printed a second set and instead of folding them I cut them all out and he play a memory game with them!

IMG_4515

This is probably my kids favorite activity! They are able to learn all kinds of fun stuff while learning! For this activity there are some really fun printouts including

  • 3 pages of Puppets
  • Space Background
  • Garden of Eden BackgroundIMG_4480

IMG_4485

IMG_4483

The kids love making their own puppet shows to tell the story of Creation or Adam and Eve! They also enjoy making up their own fun and crazy puppet shows…but they always come back to God and Creation…gotta love that!

{I printed out the puppets on card stock and the back grounds on regular paper}

In addition to all this great stuff there are a ton of printable memory verse cards!

IMG_4511 IMG_4510

These are one of my most favorite printables from What’s in the Bible? As you can see they are small, perfect for little hands! The kids each pick their own card each week and we learn them all as a family! The kids love that each card has a fun character, I love that they are learning and memorizing bible verses! There are some verse cards without characters I picked these ones specifically because of the characters *there are a TON of verse cards in the activity section. I printed out a bunch of different ones on card stock.

You can download and print all the activities here! {Psst…there are all kinds of activities for ALL the volumes!}

Ok so if I haven’t made it totally clear…We LOVE What’s in the Bible!
