What Parents Should Know
There are 15 episodes of The Torchlighters available on Minno, in both English and Spanish, and each episode features a different “torchlighter.” The episodes of The Torchlighters tell the stories of heroic individuals who often make sacrifices for their faith, including death. We suggest these episodes for children ages 8 and up, and encourage parents to watch along with their children and talk through the historical facts and consequences of following God.
