Fresh Fruit Pie - Family Friendly DVD Series

Fresh Fruit Pie is a new DVD series that aims to raise the bar on the quality of family entertainment. These videos are sort of like a family-friendly "Saturday Night Live" and can be enjoyed by both parents and kids of today's generation. Here's some information from the Fresh Fruit Pie website:

The culture of today’s kids is very different than it was when we were kids. Kids have access to cell phones, texting, youtube, social media sites like Facebook, and countless other technologies that completely change the way they communicate ideas and relate with each other. Mr. Rogers and Sesame Street are fantastic shows, but they don’t hold the attention of today’s kids.

As parents, teachers, pastors, and moral leaders, we compete with an enticing but immoral culture to keep kids’ hearts and minds on the right track. Fresh Fruit Pie is our response to that culture. We’ve spent years observing kids’ media consumption habits and have crafted a show that is specifically designed to entertain them in a wholesome and encouraging way. It is also a starting point to discuss positive moral values. Our vision is to make awesome family entertainment, to expose kids to the morals they need to be successful in life, and to be relevant to the fast-paced world of today’s youth. Fresh Fruit Pie is intense, really intense – enough to capture the attention of today’s media-saturated kids. It best reaches (and has been designed for) one of the toughest age ranges: 6-12, although kids of all ages have found the show amazingly fun.

Fresh Fruit Pie is inspired by the “Fruit of the Spirit” found in the Bible -

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)

Nine episodes of Fresh Fruit Pie are currently in production, each episode focusing on one of the nine Fruit of the Spirit. The first episode, entitled Party!, centers on “Joy.”

Fresh Fruit Pie will be holding an online premier Oct. 19-21. During this time, an entire episode will be available for free live streaming for 48 hours. Visit the Fresh Fruit Pie website for all the details.
