Three Wishes: Epsiode 1

Theatrical Release: September 23, 2005
Three Wishes: Epsiode 1


The hopes and dreams of deserving people in towns all across America come true in “Three Wishes,” an inspiring and heartwarming unscripted series starring five-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist Amy Grant (“Rock of Ages…Hymns and Faith”). The one-hour show will feature Grant leading contributors Oosterhouse, Stromer, and Mizota to communities all over the country to grant wishes.

Individuals, families and even entire cities are affected as Grant and her team move from town to town, witnessing firsthand the extraordinary consequences of their wish-granting and the powerful spirit of community that often helps fuel their missions to make dreams large and small come true.

From simple and light-hearted to more dramatic and involved, the broad spectrum of wishes range from paying tribute to an unsung hero to helping a family grappling with a loved one’s life-threatening medical crisis to honoring a high school coach by making her heartfelt wish for her students come true. Viewers will follow the deeply personal and uplifting stories of deserving people as their hopes and dreams are transformed into life-changing reality.

Dove Review

This is what reality TV should be! “Three Wishes” is a heart-warming show that will leave even the biggest “macho-man” grabbing for Kleenex. I had the wonderful opportunity to watch the first episode before the show aired, and now I will be sure not to miss a single one. In a time where we have so many different reality shows which attempt to satisfy personal desire, it’s nice to have another which brings people together, rather than divides.

Dove approves of the first episode of this series, and I very highly recommend making time to watch it on September 23. Since we have not viewed any of the future episodes, we are unable to approve any other than the first. Watching this show is a great way for the family to spend a Friday night.
