Good character is taught and caught and the new DVD series Samuel L. Collins and the Search for Biblical Truths, helps you do both. Imagine a DVD series combining the fun adventure of a Young Raiders of the Lost Ark, the high-tech gadgetry of Mission Impossible and the Scriptural conviction of Bibleman. All of those elements are masterfully interwoven throughout Samuel L. Collins and The Search for Biblical Truths, a product line designed to reach Christian children and tweens.

Lisa Marie Fletcher and Titus 2 blog review –
I recently was offered the opportunity to review some videos for a fun new family movie series called Samuel L. Collins and the Search for Biblical Truths.
Samuel L Collins’ series is designed for families (especially boys, I think), obviously modelled off the idea of Indiana Jones and the idea of making learning Bible Truths into an adventure quest.
When the box arrived with our videos, I showed them to the boys and thought that we would wait to watch them on the weekend. The kids, apparently, had other ideas and before I knew it – the 4 of us were snuggled on the couch eagerly starting the video.
In this first video, Samuel is a secret agent and his family are called to Singapore, where Samuel finds some money dropped by a lady walking down the street and then is sent on a mission to learn more about integrity and treasures.
What I really liked about this movie is that although the title would lead you to believe that Samuel is the only one on the adventure – it actually is a whole family activity. His sister, Katie, is an active part of the search and helps Samuel complete his challenges. I like that it takes something as simple as a Bible verse and makes it exciting and special. The special digital effects were really well-done.
The boys were thrilled by Samuel’s “cool” gadget watch, and as the story progressed, were eager to participate in the challenges of deciphering codes. Samuel has to use his GPS to find the geobox, an activity that we love doing too – geocaching (aka “Treasure Hunting”).
It was a nice treat to have a live-action movie for Christian values that my kids would sit through and enjoy! We are going to watch it a few more times this week, I’m sure!
Wow! Thanks Mrs. Fletcher for the awesome review!

Hi ho, the bells all toll, the episode is DONE…
It’s been a long time and a LOT of hard work, but our NEXT episode was completed yesterday!
It’s a fun episode about finding an old bone (Katie actually trips over it) and us solving the mystery of WHO’s bone it is. SOCOM finds me in the middle of Kentucky and delivers my first clue and then the ADVENTURE begins.
As a 13 year old boy I must say I’m quite intimidated at homeschool conventions.
I’m often quickly recognized as the boy from the large poster in our booth. Boys and girls often stare and point asking, “Is that YOU?” or “Are you THAT Samuel L. Collins?” Their eyes are wide open and their jaws usually open too, making a funny sight, but I must admit the only answer I’ve really come up with is “Yup, that’s me” and I shrug my shoulders.
BUT, the funniest one was….
The man who entered our booth looked around and asked MY FATHER, “Is that you?” while pointing to the poster. My father about fell over laughing. He chuckled and replied, “Why no sir, you’re looking at my son Samuel L. Collins!” The embarrassed man quickly exited our booth shaking his head in disbelief….
Then at lunch a waiter asked, “Are you two BROTHERS?” We BOTH about fell over laughing….
I guess I do look like my DAD!
Signing off for today,
So, I ask you: What should I say to small sized fans? I’m taking suggestions….
Wow, I just saw the Kentucky episode that we shot at the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum, it’s great. We had such a good time working with Buddy Davis on this episode and you can tell. Make sure you tune in this weekend on the NRB network, DIRECTV channel 378 at 11am EST on Saturday. I think this is our best show yet. We are trying something new with this episode, you’ll have to tell us what you think. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
I’m off on another adventure,
When your children are too old for Veggie Tales, you need to get them Samuel L. Collins and the Search for Biblical Truths.
Even Phil Vischer can’t resist.
