Not only do my children love Odyssey, my husband and I get just as hooked and we learn how to be better parents. I have not listened to an Odyssey I don't like. The stories shape our hearts in ways that rules and instructions can not. Yet, they are instructive and interesting at the same time. We love the characters and see how they grow in their faith and apply it to real life situations. It gives us opportunity to discuss how difficult it is to forgive, to love our enemies or to trust in God. We listen to them on short trips to the grocery store and long trips to Grandma and Grandpa's. We are all better for it!
The title itself shows that you don't have to dream little or dream big either. I've listened to odyssey for a long time.(I am 19 years old and my mom and my three brothers cannot go to sleep without listening to odyssey(weird right) dont answer that! Anyway, this particular album talks about forgiveness and how that we need to forgive people who have wronged us and we need to be forgiven as well sometimes. But in this album it is really thought out by the way the actors are voiced and how the script is done. Well done, AIO. You guys are amazing. I dont want to give anything out even though this is an older album. Y'all probably have heard it before. Anyway, i am slowly getting all the Odysseys. I need about 4 more and then I'll have them all. It's a fantastic program and i can't wait for album 58. Adios!
