Most-requested DVDs of 2012

Now that 2012 has wrapped up, and the results are in, it’s time to share with you the most-requested Life Lessons DVDs of the year.

Top 10 DVDs of 2012
We shipped well over 600 DVDs to Life Lessons groups in 2012. Not surprisingly, the four DVDs released between 4Q2011 and 3Q2012 were all among the top five most-requested message series for Life Lessons groups. Sitting at the top is The Comparison Trap, with 36 orders. I remember sitting in church with my wife last February, as The Comparison Trap was presented live, and we looked at each other saying, “This is going to be huge for Life Lessons groups!”

By the way, most of the newer DVDs on this list have had very few ratings or comments so far. If you’ve done one of these in your group, would you take a minute to rate it and/or offer your comments on the series page? Your feedback really helps your fellow leaders, who are considering which series to show in their groups.

Here’s the list of the Top 10 most-requested Life Lessons DVDs of 2012.

* Recovery Road was only available for the last 10 weeks of 2011, yet it still managed to rank 12th for that year. If all of the Recovery Road requests for its first 12 months of release were counted, its 38 would place it above Comparison Trap, and would be the 2nd-highest 12-month total, trailing only the 45 requests for Time of Your Life in its first 12 months. Of course, Comparison Trap still has two months to go in its first year of release, so it could still break Time of Your Life‘s record.

New series: The Comparison Trap

There’s a new 3-part message series available for Life Lessons groups: The Comparison Trap.

I’m excited to add The Comparison Tramp to the Life Lessons catalog because it’s such a natural fit for Life Lessons groups. We all deal with the problem of comparing ourselves to those around us, trying to figure out where we stand and if we make the cut. At least, I know I deal with it. When this series ran live at North Point, I missed part 1 with bronchitis. When I listened to the podcast of it a week later to catch up, I was on a treadmill at the gym. And at the very moment Andy talked about how we look to our right and to our left… I happened to be sneaking a glance at the treadmill to my left, comparing their speed to mine. I was caught in the trap!

If I deal with the comparison trap and you do too, chances are that we’re not alone. Those in your sphere of influence, regardless of where they stand spiritually, deal with the same issue—and your Life Lessons group may be their best opportunity to find out how to escape the comparison trap!
