These stories are great for the whole family!  We love listening to all the Brinkman Adventures stories.  They are thrilling, funny, encouraging, and sometimes a bit hair raising, and they keep the kids on the edge of their seats.  We have been blessed in the past to review these wonderful stories in our homeschool.  Be sure to read about our review of Season 3 so you can see more about how our family uses these in our home.

Some of the important, silly, and adventurous faith building things my kids have learned about while listening to these stories are:

  • unshakable faith in God
  • surrendering everything to God
  • houseboats in Cambodia
  • frozen prisons in Russia
  • dangerous alleys in the Middle East
  • dodging angry hippos
  • taming rogue robots
  • trust in God during times of pain

Brinkman Adventures introduces families to unsung Christian heroes,  real men and women who have devoted their lives to sharing the gospel and the struggles and triumphs they went through.  These stories strengthen your faith and provide important discussions about life and inspire teachable moments for faith building with your kids.  They just might inspire you and your kids to do more for God in your daily life, your local community, and maybe inspire them to reach beyond their local community too.

Be sure to check out these REAL STORIES that are featured in Season 4.

There is a page called FUN STUFF  where you will find a few  PDF sketches you can use as coloring pages from various episodes, and some videos to watch about missions and about the making of different episodes.

About Brinkman Adventures:

Brinkman Adventures was created by Ian Bultman and his family.  They are radio stories that tell the adventure of various missionaries and Christians around the world.  His children and extended family play many of the characters as they retell these stories and really bring the story to life.

The stated purpose / mission / goal of Brinkman Adventures on their website is “to reach as many people as possible with these incredible, life changing stories. Our board is passionate about the scope and breadth of this ministry and the potential for future opportunities such as curriculum, family camp & mission scholarships. By God’s grace and through His empowering we hope to inspire, motivate, and facilitate the next generation of Christian world changers.”

So far, they have created 5 Seasons with 12 episodes in each one.  Be sure to check out their website and FREE audio samples to learn about all of these great adventures.
