Skyship Dreamer: The Girl and the Sky

Grab the kids and climb aboard Skyship Dreamer, as you head for your dreams! As you listen, sail through God’s beautiful canvas – taking a break from the chaos of everyday life and soaking in the calm. Everyone’s always trying to get somewhere else, but up here, you can be still and listen for God. He wants us to find him, but we have to listen. Fall asleep to the story of the girl and the sky, as you’re reminded of God’s beautiful creation.

Giovanni the Giraffe

Tonight, you’re going on a bedtime safari with Giovanni the giraffe. It’s a bedtime journey like you’ve never been on before. Before you click play, get really cozy with your kids and take a deep breath together. The Bible says that every kind of animal – even reptiles and sea creatures – can be tamed by mankind. Some giraffes live in a zoo, but Giovanni lives in the trees of Africa, roaming the grasslands with his family and friends. Rest easy as you hear his story, and fall asleep with the warmth of God wrapped around – just like the giraffes!

All Through the Night: A Lullaby

God loves his children so much that he watches us all through the night – keeping us safe, just like your parents do. The Bible reminds us that God sent his angels to watch over us, no matter what we’re doing or where we go. As you listen, remember that tonight you can sleep happily, knowing that the Lord is with you. Snuggle under those warm covers, feel your fluffy pillow, close your eyes, and smile because you’re never alone.
