Silent Blessings

Marshall Lawrence started Silent Blessings Deaf Ministries after learning his toddler was deaf. Concerned she had little to watch on television, and being too young for closed captioning, he decided to start a program for deaf children called Dr. Wonder’s Workshop out of his basement in 1996. Written mostly by the deaf, the 30 minute show includes deaf child actors using ASL. The nonprofit operation is now in Anderson, Indiana and mainly focuses on character issues, such as honesty, and includes a Bible story. Find out more here.
