To help buyers decide on their purchase, here are some customer reviews:


"This item was FANTASTIC! The ASL was beautifully performed! The background music was great! The performer could not have done a better job - very expressive! I hope they make more DVDs with different songs, themes, teaching, as I intend to buy every one of them!" S. Sorvaag, Argusville, ND

"Thanks for all of the help that your DVD provided. The ladies who will be doing 'O' Come All Ye Faithful' at the Christmas play have learned it already! We have enjoyed your work over and over. Thanks again and God Bless." Rev. John Sparr, Liberty, Kentucky

"We are deeply moved by the grace and beauty of how the songs are presented. Silent Night in Sign Language takes on a whole new meaning to the hymn. In all the years I have loved this I have never EXPERIENCED it as I did in ASL. It touches both heart and soul in the beautiful, graceful and gentle way in which it is so lovingly performed on the DVD. Your work has enriched all of our lives. Congratulations and God Bless in your work." H & R McGlinchey, London, Ontario, Canada

"I am 13 years old and have perfect hearing. I have been learning sign language for the past two years and was so excited to get your Silent Night DVD for Christmas. I have used it non stop and now know most of the songs by heart. I have shared it with my friends and a volunteer group of hearing impaired that I work with and we have all enjoyed it. Everyone says "How beautiful" it is. Most of them never knew a sign language song before your DVD and we had to play it over and over and over.... again. It really made for a very special Christmas Celebration in our group. I think everyone should get this DVD if they want to really get in touch with the true meaning of Christmas. It makes you stop and appreciate what you have and really "listen" to the message of Christmas in the songs. I think it is brilliant. I am now looking forward to learning the songs from the new Patriotic DVD that just arrived." C McGlinchey, London, Ontario, Canada

"I really enjoy your Christmas Carol DVD - I really love it. My grandkids love watching your DVD and me learning how to sign your songs. I love your performance and could feel the motions and emotions. You really perform so gracefully. I would love to get more of your ASL songs. Thank You!" M. Bishop, Tully, NY

"Thank you for making such a wonderful DVD!! You sign beautifully!!!! It's the first time my family has been able to enjoy Christmas carols during the holiday season!! We can't wait for you to come out with more DVD's!! Thank you again for producing such a wonderful DVD!!" The Rogels, Olathe, Kansas

"A 'Silent Night' Christmas Carols in ASL is a beautiful DVD with wonderfully expressive signs and lovely music. It covers such a wide variety of Holiday Music. It's one of highest quality ASL DVDs that we've seen. This is a perfect gift for anyone who loves the beauty of ASL. Thank you for making such a great product!" Kelly Simpkins, Senior Product Coordinator for Harris Communications

"I received the DVD several days ago and HOW EXCELLENT! I watch it daily to keep in the season! I just had to share that your 'happy dance' at the end is the highlight of the DVD. You are amazing! You two are beautiful inside and out. THANKS FOR THIS GIFT OF LOVE." MM Rodgers, Pontiac, MI

"Enjoyment for both Deaf and hearing, this DVD will entertain as well as promote understanding and appreciation of American Sign Language. Familiar Christmas carols performed in ASL provide a wonderful way to experience the eloquence and beauty of Sign Language. Sure to become an ASL Christmas Classic, A 'Silent Night' contains best-loved carols." Adco Hearing Products, Inc.

"This is absolutely wonderful and so long overdue for the Hearing Impaired. The DVD presentation of Silent Night was so beautiful yet simple that all of our challenged adults were able to follow it. Some who have resisted the learning of ASL were so captivated by the performance they wanted to "SING" along. Two of our group began signing for the first time in many months giving us all reason to celebrate the season. Thank you for opening minds and hearts." Social Development Group for Challenged and Hearing Impaired Adults, London, Ontario
