Wally and Sam are two residents living in Illumination Station; they are light bulbs and best friends that share a love for God and adventure.
The love of adventure takes them away from Gods word when they make a conscious choice to go against God's, and their parents, wishes. They find themselves faced with temptation that leads them to a scary and dark place full of dimly lit and mean spirited light bulbs, and they themselves start to dim.
Realizing they have made a terrible mistake by not following God's word, they turn to prayer and beg God's forgiveness and protection. The journey that follows is to help them realize that while it isn't easy to avoid temptation, it is the right choice. Doing the right thing helps God's light shine through you and others will notice. God's light shining from Wally and Sam effects those that aren't shining brightly; it gives them the chance to share God's light and love.
"Illumination Station" does a wonderful job of explaining God's love and forgiveness in a moving and understandable story that children will love.
