Beautiful Uplifting Kids Stories

My kids and I love this podcast! CC uses beautiful imagery to bring fun stories to life that subtly teaches kids social skills and life lessons. Our favorite series is Bob the Bad Pirate. The production, music and writing are incredibly well done and I love the idea and lesson of being a light archer. If you’re looking to entertain your kids on any length drive or at night to sit still and relax, Lightcatchers is for you.

The Grace Whisperer ,

C.C. Kimmel understands the hearts and needs ...

... of kids ... and their parents. This season’s new adventure with new characters shows the incredible imagination of C.C. K and his amazing gift of weaving words — words that draw children in while deliberately and tenderly helping them work through some of the biggest challenges of childhood ... and life.
