    I really liked “It is Well” about Horatio Spafford. I didn’t know about this one until I found it on here. I really enjoyed it!
    I have been listening to Adventures in Odyssey since I was 5. I’m 19 and still loving it.

    I really loved it. “Amazing Grace” is one of my favorite songs but i never knew it was written by John Newton. It’s a very inspiring story and thanks for putting it on Adventures In Odyssey.

    I agree with Brooke (at the top, third down) I like this one as well as “It Is Well” Although I did already know about John Newton and William Wilberforce. I’ve even seen the movie mentioned, “Amazing Grace.” (:
