A Family Life Christmas

A Family Life Christmas is a collection of full cast holiday audio dramas with religious themes. The audio dramas can be steamed from the website.

The Christmas story and God's ultimate message of love and forgiveness is seen from three separate vantage points. A small band of angels is busy in heaven preparing for Christ's return when a modern day scene below catches their attention. A young girl, searching for true love and peace in her inner city home, finds herself pregnant with angry parents insisting on an abortion. Her desperate situation reminds the on-looking angels of a similar plight of a young girl some 2000 years earlier.

Charles Dickens' beloved holiday classic takes on a fresh flavor in this touching family radio drama from the producers of “Focus on the Family Radio Theatre.” True to the original content of Dickens' masterpiece, this presentation vividly contrasts the age-old struggle between earthly gain and eternal treasure. As the stirring story unfolds, you and your family will be challenged anew to examine your own hearts, and re-evaluate where your treasure really is.

Christmas is a joyful time spent with family, but what if you don't have one? What if Christmas Eve is the anniversary of the worst event in your life? Midnight Clear, written by Jerry Jenkins and distributed in audio by Oasis Audio, has an eclectic cast: A middle-aged man who's just lost his job; the owner of a run-down gas station having to work the holiday; a lady well past her prime with no reason to live; a mother who'll do anything for her son; and a struggling youth pastor who's lost his zeal. When the paths of these five intersect, nothing will ever be the same.

The Christmas Shoes has become one of the many seasonal favorites on Family Life. It is an extraordinary tale based on the #1 hit single of the same name. The audio book has mesmerized listeners and has captured the hearts of thousands. This Macmillan Audio production is read by Paul Michael and depicts a chance meeting on Christmas Eve of Robert, a successful attorney who has everything in life - and nothing at all, and Nathan, an eight-year-old who is losing his mother to cancer. The Christmas Shoes is a tale of how God's power can shape and even save our lives.

Author Donna VanLiere continues The Christmas Shoes with The Christmas Blessing. Young Nathan Andrews, the child who lost his mother, is now a medical student in his third year. Nathan realizes there are still things to be learned about faith and sacrifice. These are lessons he will learn from a young woman born with a hole in her heart, and from a young boy named Charlie who a lives a life of true courage. The Christmas Blessing, a Macmillan Audio production, is read by Oliver Wyman, and is an inspiring story about hope in the darkest place, and love being the greatest gift.

In this exciting story by Max Lucado and published by Oasis Audio, The Christmas Candle takes the listener on a journey to a small English village where nothing out of the ordinary ever happens – except at Christmas time. That's when a mysterious angel suddenly appears in a lowly candle maker's shop – when the holy and the human collide in a way that only God could imagine. Glowing bright with a timeless message, The Christmas Candle will warm your heart with a surprising reminder of God's bountiful love. The Christmas Candle is dramatically read by Greg Whalen.
