Drew’s Dancing Drum Review: A Simple Message in Christ

Bringing to our Children the Meaning of Faith

Drew's Dancing DrumThrough terms one can understand, I am always searching for analogies that represent how one can live in the world, but not of the world. Learning how to use the tools given to us, as adults, in order to assimilate our mission with His will can be challenging to say the least. Sometimes it is through a simple message – through a means more familiar – that we can find just the right concept.

And it is through Drew’s Dancing Drum that not only adults, but children especially, can experience a strong yet simple message and find comfort in our omnipotent and merciful God. An app for iPad and iPhone, Justine Danielle Del Monte and Brandon Chappell bring a fun and engaging story to your home. In 12 slides, a lasting impression is sure to be made on your little one – in addition to yourself. Follow the story of a boy who has so much fun and joy with the toys he is afforded, but yet learns that it will take much more than materials to reveal light when times become dark.

Simple themes, music, fun and even animals: good things of this world are everywhere, butDrew's Dancing Drum nothing can fully bring us happiness but Him, and so this app illustrates (literally!) that one should not take for granted His love and gifts to us. In addition, it displays forgiveness, honoring and trusting your parents, and the presence and importance of family. What better way is there to send these strong messages to our Children, who are the future and the true blind followers of our Lord? The use of engaging apps that take advantage of the modern technology comes full circle with the simple download of a free app to your iPad or iPhone.

It is only with God that anything is possible, and Drew’s Dancing Drum will give your young child a clear picture of how the love that Christ fills us with can impact one in the most basic of ways. It will remind you, also, that there is no need to look too hard for Salvation. The answer could be as rudimentary as a boy’s dancing drum.

A few points on the technology: great graphics, age-appropriate wording and fun music. I loved the functionality of clicking on the puzzle piece to go back to a specific slide. Also, I’ll reveal a hint: click on the title at the beginning for fun acoustics. And finally, at the end, discover a quote from Psalms. I won’t spoil everything, so you must download Drew’s Dancing Drum to discover the final message the author is trying to convey!

  1. Hello Peter. You had reviewed my App Drew’s Dancing Drum in the past. It literally has touched my heart and made me realize I need to become even closer to God. I have also continued the story of Drew’s Dancing Drum with a “part 2″ app even more interactive than the first. And would LOVE if you could review it. I was also hoping to give you a donation, just need to know where to send it.

    • Thank you Brandon for your kind words. If I have even touched one, then my mission is complete. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to be part of your and many others’ creations. Your app was certainly one that I won’t forget!

      Right now the app reviews are $5.99 here or you can submit for the free monthly here. If you were still interested in giving a donation after those options, you can find that link here.

      In Christ,
      Peter Silas
