About The Gracie B Project

Create a legacy for today that will impact children for an eternity


Gracie B and her Honeycomb crew are on a mission to discover all the wonders in the garden. With their insatiable curiosity and love of adventure, they explore every nook and cranny, uncovering secrets and learning valuable lessons along the way. But it’s not all sunshine and daisies. The pesky cockroaches, Chick and Wilbur, are always lurking about, looking for ways to spoil the Honeycombs’ fun. Despite their best efforts to be kind to the dastardly duo, Chick and Wilbur are seemingly incorrigible.

The Honeycombs channel their creativity and love for music into crafting catchy tunes that glorify God, good behavior, and great manners. They perform these songs at the end of each episode. Through their adventures, the Honeycombs teach valuable lessons about God, the Bible, colors, sounds, letters, math, and respect.

Challenge

Combat the radical agenda being forced onto our youngest minds—our children!


Cultural norms are being radically changed to move our world away from traditional family values and godly behaviors. Mainstream media is a primary vehicle for this influence, using traditional, mobile, and digital technologies to indoctrinate people from childhood through adulthood. Major brands have begun to play a significant role as well, using the bully pulpits afforded by their companies’ wealth to support ideologies that are detrimental to families and children.

“The stakes are high, and it is up to us to take a stand and win the battle for our children’s futures.”

Sadly, they often use their influence to normalize unbiblical, liberal agendas and even to promote alternative lifestyles. All of this has a profound impact on our children’s development. Even our school systems have been taken over by an agenda intent on normalizing the abnormal. Despite the magnitude of this influence, many people fail to recognize its depth and scope. It is imperative that we take action to protect our children’s hearts and minds. The stakes are high, and it is up to us to take a stand and win the battle for our children’s futures.

Opportunity

Through the power of partnership, we'll create an impact that lasts an eternity.


We have a significant opportunity to create engaging, fun, educational content for our children that aligns with biblical values. To meet this challenge, we must adopt a smarter approach than ever before. We have the calling and talent to deliver our message in a compelling way that will capture your children’s imagination and set them on a path of discovery. The missing ingredient is people like you who believe as we do that investing in our children’s spiritual growth and well-being is the greatest investment we can make.

“Together, we will ensure our children are equipped with the tools they need to thrive in a rapidly changing world.”

Creating quality animated content like Gracie B and the Honeycombs can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 per minute. With an average story episode lasting six minutes, ten new episodes can cost between $300,000 and $600,000!

WAIT! Those seem like awfully big numbers. But this is where the power of the people comes into the picture. Dividing this load makes the burden light and makes creation possible. You can join us in this mission to empower our children with strong Christian values. For as little as $50, you can partner with us to create engaging content, programs, and shows that make a big difference.

Together, we will ensure our children are equipped with the tools they need to thrive in a rapidly changing world. Through your financial partnership and support, we can make this vision and project a reality.

Every Child Deserves To Know The Truth!
