Dove Foundation Endorses SpiritClips Originals

Dove Worldview | Reviewer: Edwin L. Carpenter

Wow! This is one terrific DVD which will inspire anyone who watches it. “Spirit Clips” will raise your spirits and inspire you to believe in miracles, if you don’t already.

The DVD features twelve clips, running approximately three to four minutes each. In the first clip, titled “Sally”, a waitress is having a bad day and one particular customer is giving her grief. However, one simple man, a kind customer, makes her day. Without plot spoiling we can say that each clip stands out. The twelve clips include the titles “Sally”, “Hospital Window”, “The Little Frog”, “The Fork”, “Red”, “The Cracked Pot”, “La Cachete”, “The Sign”, “The Price of Miracles”, “The Gift of the Magi”, “Commencement”, and finally “Montgomery”. A few of these are animated, “The Little Frog”, “The Cracked Pot” and “The Price of Miracles”. In “Commencement” we get a woman’s testimony in a documentary fashion, a wonderful story about a battle she faced when her son Daniel was a teen and had cancer, but how the ending was much happier than the beginning.

My personal favorites are “Sally” and “The Fork”, which reveals a miracle to a woman more than forty years after she thought there was no hope regarding someone close to her. These stories just may bring a tear to your eye as they are excellently portrayed in story form and embrace topics everyone can relate to. We are pleased to award five Doves to this DVD, and that’s as high as we go! This one is inspirational in the truest sense of the word.

SpiritClips on

From Project Kinect with Gregg Potter:

I came across Spirit Clips earlier this week when it was talked about on The View.  This mission is directly from their website. is a content subscription service delivering original and acquired films that inspire and entertain audiences of all ages. We also offer our members a wealth of quality personal and professional development content aimed at enhancing positive living. From viewing Hallmark Hall of Fame movies online to watching TED Talks on mobile devices, SpiritClips meets the demand of subscribers seeking positive messages.

I am glad to have found such a website and am happy to share it here on Project Kinect.  The human connection is so important and a company that supports that, as well as enhancing positive living is so incredible.  Spend some time on the website and just soak it in and above all, share it.

This is one of the short films that was made by Spirit Clips.  It really portrays what we always seem to forget as humans: You never know where generosity and kindness will come from so don’t judge!

Due to the embeded code being private, here is the link.  It is definitley worth the click and the opening of a new window.
