Creative Funding for Artists from The Grove

Do you know artists who need help funding their next art project? Or art event? Or even their professional career development? For too many artists, ‘starving artist’ or ‘struggling artist’ isn’t a stereotype, but a daily reality. Limited access to finding grants, art funds, artistic foundation support and venture capital makes it extremely difficult for […]

A Question of Focus

Crickets. That’s all you’ve been hearing lately from me. The crickets started cricketing last summer and they’ve been buzzing for quite a few months now. (My last post, Great Power and Beauty Await You, was way, way back in July…cricket season!) For me, it’s been a question of focus. A question of focus with my […]

Great Power and Beauty Await You

This weekend, great power and beauty await you if you’re willing to stop and be still.

I come from a large family, so between Krista’s family and my […]

Joey - thanks for checking in on the Viz Story Net site. I don't go to the site much but get their emails. I am on the Grove site. Since I'm the Alaska contact for Hollywood prayer Net, I continue to pray for LA media and beyond/ +Christians representing for Jesus in media.
In His grace and love,

If Christians who are able to fund projects don't get busy soon, there are significant areas where we will be left behind in the clutter of other blockbuster movies. We have to choose mainstream topics and not preachy ones. I'm sure you know that, but I've have to go commercial to get anything done. I've gotten a million poor excuses from people that should be backing what we're doing.

Hey Joey.
Clyde suggested that I connect with you, but I don't know why as your profile info is a bit sparse. Check out my sites sometime and see if you can see what he may have had in mind.

Take care!
