Jessica’s Journey – Dramatic Audio MP3 Download


(45 customer reviews)

Over 100 years ago, a darkness loomed over Victorian England in which children were used and abused. Influenced by her mentor, Charles Dickens, Hesba Stretton exposed this darkness through her stories. She won widespread fame for Jessica’s First Prayer and was considered one of the most popular writers of the 19th century. This beloved story sold at least a million and a half copies, outselling Alice in Wonderland by “nearly ten times as many.”

Today we bring Hesba Stretton’s story to life as a world-class audio drama, Jessica’s Journey. A web of characters becomes entangled with the knowledge of past sins; a minister, a miser, and an unfit mother experience miraculous redemption through their connection with little Jessica and her answer to prayer.

    A Wonderful Story For All Ages! I donated to Lamplighter and received Jessica’s Journey a little under a month later. Immediately I downloaded it and began to listen. I loved it!
    My only complaint being that the actor that plays Jessica is an adult and the childish charm that the children naturally have was missing.

    Jessica’s Journey It was just wonderful. I will be doing a review at our Book Club on Friday, October 18, and I am so anxious to share without revealing too much of the story. Thank you for offering an opportunity to purchase it before completion. Audio books are my favorite.

    A Wonderful Story! This is a beautiful portrayal of the strength and yet simplicity of a child’s faith. Little Jessica is mostly alone in the world, but she clings to her new found hope in the fact that God loves her. Her life is used to touch those around her and help show them the true meaning of the gospel. You will be blessed and inspired by Jessica’s Journey.

    Another Fantastic Story by Lamplighter Theater We’ve been delighted by all the Lamplighter Theater dramas. Jessica’s Journey is a wonderful story and does not fail to be as well done and enjoyable as the rest. When on a trip my daughter said, (1) I wish the drive took longer so we could hear the rest of the story, and (2) can we stay in the car and finish the story?

    Beautifully recorded As always, Lamplighters has produced an amazing drama with the story of redemption woven in every fold. Thanks! Worth more than rubies!

    Highly Recommended Jessica’s Journey is a touching and convicting story of reaching those who are lost but may seem unlovable. The audio did have some changes from the book, especially the ending. But still a great story with a strong message and very well done as all the Lamplighter audios have been. Really appreciate the work of Lamplighter to provide quality material to instill Christian values and build character.

    Highly Recommended! Listened to it spellbound! From adult down to six-year-old, we set in a car long after we got home to finish the story. Thank you for a wonderful reminder to give our ALL to Christ!

    Jessica’s Journey Absolutely wonderful! Enjoyed the story so much and was stirred that there are children who grow up in households like that TODAY! Encourages me to pray more for them and try to help someway. Keep up the good work and I look forward to the next episode!

    Highly Recommended! I have so enjoyed this audio drama. Can’t tell you how many times I have listened to it. I downloaded it on my phone and can listen anytime anywhere. Thanks so much for your ministry of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ.

    Good As Always Missed Mr.F.Jones in it. Noticed how in the stories leading up to this one you used him less and less. Anyway good story. (i kind of ruined it for myself by watching videos of the actors)

    Great Story! We Really Enjoyed It! This story was really good! We couldn’t wait to hear what happened to Jessica! The acting was excellent, and it kept our attention. Keep it up Lamplighter! This is a high quality production! Thanks!

    A bit disappointed We were disappointed that the story doesn’t have Finnian Jones in it at all! We really liked the first ones, where he was at the beginning AND the ending. We love the work you do, though, and applaud you for your wonderful stories.

    Excellent Audio Drama This is such a great book! My brother and I listened to it and loved it. I love the enthusiasm Jessica has for Jesus and wanting her mother to know him too. It truly is a great recording. My friend and I listen to them almost every time we get together. Thanks so much for making these!

    Another Wonderful Radio Theatre Another wonderful radio theatre presentation. This story is so well acted out and shows how love and compassion for just one child can make such a difference.

    Powerful! Such a sweet and moving story of a little girl whose faith affected everyone around her. This is a top-notch audio drama that will have you on the edge of your seat. And such a valuable lesson that will leave your heart pondering for days. Way to go Lamplighter on making yet another amazing and excellent audio drama!

    Jessica’s Journey Jessica’s Journey is a quality dramatized audio book. The characters come to life and tell the story of the great impact of simple kindness. Which, of course, points us to the kindness of Jesus and its redemptive power. It was a delight to the young and old in my household. Thank you.

    Very Good I liked Jessica’s Journey very much.

    Wonderful! My 4th & 6th grader and I loved this! It was wonderful, the acting by the woman playing Jessica’s mother was truly great – only Christ can do such things in a heart that’s changed by Him.

    Highly Recommened I absolutely love Lamplighter audio dramas, and Jessica’s Journey is no exception!

    I can’t really find the right words to express why I love them so much, but I’ll try to explain a little. The audio dramas are so well made, I don’t even realize I’m listening to a story because I’m taken right in. And the stories themselves are so captivating, wholesome, and thought provoking that I want to listen to more. They remind me of the brokenness of the world and of the grace of God. God’s ways are beautiful! I often cry out of thankfulness to God while listening to Lamplighter stories because they bring to light my regrets, my depravity, my fears, and my sufferings, but in such a way that I’m reminded of the healing and redemption in Christ Jesus.

    DA-Jessica’s Journey I bought 4 stories, and by far Jessica’s Journey is my favorite out of the 4. Acting was very good, and the story itself moved me to tears at times. How God’s grace can reach anybody in any circumstance comes loud and clear in this story.

    Great As Usual! Great story. As usual, great character development and morals.

    Excellent Production This dramatic theatre production is of great excellence and our family loved listening as the story came to life. We love the books of Lamplighter and the glory they bring to the Lord.
    We highly recommend this dramatic audio as well as all the dramatic audio productions.
    Thank you Lamplighter for your service.

    Jessica’s Journey It is a wonderful story but be careful about marital content for little ones. It has an alcoholic, abusive mother in the story and a near death experience in it. Otherwise an awesome story of a little girls faith and coming to Christ. My daughter is 10 and loved it.

  32. anonymous (verified owner)

    EXCELLENT Once again, a beautiful story wonderfully recorded!

    My Favorite Yet! Highly recommend! This is a wonderful audio…. you won’t be sorry once you hear it!!! This is by far one of my favorites 🙂

    The Power of Prayer The power of prayer and the power of a child’s faith is the center of this story that is filled with the power of the Gospel. A variety of characters showcase how these three powerful things, prayer, a child’s simple faith, and the Gospel can impact and change lives, from the wayward, down and out to the “religious”. Life is a “Journey”.

    Worthwhile Story Our daughter Jessica was especially interested in this story, but the rest of the family also enjoyed it a lot. Voice actors have the accent down pat & use good expression.

  41. anonymous (verified owner)

    Thoroughly Enjoyable A sweet story that thoroughly engrossed us from the beginning. Driving through tears and goosebumps as homeless Jessica touches many lives with the living gospel of our utter destitution and need for rescue.

  42. anonymous (verified owner)

    Excellent!! My 10 year old daughter and I listened to this during our driving time. At first she was a little disappointed because the story does have some sad moments. But by the end of the story we were both commenting on how well done it was, and how much we enjoyed it. Masterfully produced. Very engaging.

    A Favorite 1 My husband and our two adopted daughters (ages 19 and 16) loved this story! We could relate in so many ways and it ends victoriously.

  44. anonymous (verified owner)

    Highly Recommended Excellent production! Provides insight into the plight of homeless children. It gives hope for the hopeless on their journey in a hard cruel world. Wonderful lessons – Loved when unlovable, the joy of a forgiveness – child like faith and the impact one can have on so many. Truly a wonderful story.

    Jessica’s Journey Like all Lamplighter productions, you risk crying in public if you listen anywhere other than in the privacy of your car or bedroom. I’ve often had to “scratch” my eye (while really wiping away the tears) in public in order to not attract too much attention. While Jessica’s demeanor is unlikely to be realistic in real life (she’s a gracious, wonderful little girl raised in a very rough, ungracious environment), and while some suspension of disbelief is called for, the redeeming factors of the story are wonderful and emotive. My entire family of 5 listens silently in the car and no one wants to get out at our destination unless the story is done. Jessica has inspired my 8-year old daughter to look past 8-year old childish issues and to develop into a loving and gracious young lady. My sincere thanks to an excellent cast at Lamplighter.
