We here at Preach are avid news consumers like you. But in the midst of so many anxiety-inducing headlines, we’re also trying to remember that there are lots of good, joyful, curious and calming things in the world. And since stress is bad for your health too, it’s OK to take a short break from the news every once in a while.

If you grew up in the 1990s, or if you're the parent of someone who did, your life was probably touched in some way by VeggieTales. The computer-animated show featured singing vegetables that teach kids bible stories. It became a Christian media empire, with a bestselling VHS and DVD series, a broadcast TV version and even a feature film. Then it went bankrupt.
