The 700 Club

Can a Cartoon Change Eternity?

In 2009, the CBN animated series Superbook was re-released with a new look and fresh new storylines. And, Gracie Smith was one of the first to see it. Her aunt Audra Haney is a producer for The 700 Club and was assigned to cover the premiere in Dallas, Texas.

"I knew that my niece, who was four at the time, had to come be a part of that with me," Audra said.

"In the movie, I saw how brave he was, David was, and I learned to always be faithful and brave," Gracie said.

After the premiere, both Gracie and Audra were Superbook fans.

"I was really impressed with the quality of the animation and the integrity in which they were sharing these biblical stories," Audra said.

"Superbook takes them on fun adventures," Gracie said. "They take them in the past...like the battle of the wall of Jericho and they watched Jesus' miracles...walking on water..."

Audra eventually joined The Superbook Club, so she could keep sharing the Bible stories with Gracie.

"The Superbook Club is amazing for a couple of reasons," Audra said. "First of all, I get new episodes and secondly, I get three copies. So, not only have I been sending them to Gracie, but as our family has grown throughout the years, I've been able to send one to my younger brother's children...and I've also saved them for my own children."

"She sends me Superbooks for Easter, birthdays, Christmas," Gracie said. "She wants me to learn more about God."

"One Sunday after church, her Sunday school teacher asked me how she knew so much about the Bible," Gracie's grandmother Debra Smith said. "I have to give Superbook the credit...it is the Word of God and the Word of God never comes back void."

"I think one of the most exciting things was when my niece started to memorize the song they sing at the end of Superbook," Audra said.

Gracie singing: "Jesus you died upon the Cross and rose again to save the lost. Forgive me now of all my sin. Come be my Savior Lord and friend."

"And eventually she started asking me what it meant for Jesus to die and save us and so it opened up a lot of conversation for us to talk about the plan of salvation," Debra said.

On New Year's Day 2013, Gracie gave her heart to Jesus and was later baptized.

"I decided to follow him and be a disciple of His," Gracie said. "I love God very much and I wanted Him to be my Savior and my life."

"I'm just amazed when I look at the fruit I've seen in my entire family's life," Audra said. "I know that these cartoons I get monthly are having an eternal impact on my family and I'm so grateful for that. "
