Doesn't the world need a little more KINDNESS? I was blessed to be able to write and produce the sixth DVD of this Parent's Choice award-winning series is called IESODO: KINDNESS; it releases on September 8th on DVD (Amazon.com, CBD.com, and Christian retailers) and online (ITunes, Amazon Prime). The Dove Foundation gives it Five Doves (highest) and called it "A great animated series." Please share KINDNESS with someone this Fall -- really appreciate your prayers, support, and friendship.
I have the opportunity to interact with people all throughout the day. That probably doesn't make me all that unique. I bet you have the same opportunities as me. Because I live in a very virtual world, most of my meetings are by phone, Skype or WebEx.
One of the big questions is, "how will I use today's God-given opportunities?"
I have been fascinated by the way story works in our…Continue

Here is the list of books I have read in the last few years (not to be confused with my film list). My reading tends to happen in fits and starts. My books are my mentors. They find themselves congregating all over the house. Unfortunately only one out of three benefit from the air-conditioning inside the house. The other two thirds sweat it out in the garage.
I like to hold the physical…Continue
A Simple Tool For Sharing Your Faith In A Powerful Way!
My son Nick just graduated from college. Way up in the bleachers, my wife Kari and I sat beaming as he strode proudly across the stage, diploma in hand. It was the culmination of a dream we weren’t always sure would come true. Every parent worries for their child’s future. It’s part of the…Continue

Making a short film with a low budget is not any problem in any respect. Multimedia art classes are the most difficult subject, if you would ask me. Your time and money, and creativity are the things you consider. Professor are not easy to please.

Please tell me if you can help me get the link to our campaign page to as wide a Christian audience as possible. You can see our page and watch a 2 minute film here: …Continue

Last night, as we lay in bed debriefing of the day, Shirin breathed with fatigue, "the last year has been a blur. I feel like I've lost a whole year. The only fun times I remember are our trip to Monterey and the Story Seminar."…

Last night Shirin and I were guests of Steve and Jackie Green in Santa Clarita, California. Along with 100 others, we were there to learn about the launch of the Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C. in 2017. Last night, I got the backstory of the museum. More importantly, I was completely captured by the vision. I invite you to get involved in this historic opportunity with Shirin and me.…Continue

002 – GOD of miracles: Soon after, the sister, who was 17 at the time, fell. Several members of the group who had seen her falling shouted, “Someone has fallen!” I heard them, but I was not paying attention thinking that it was not serious. But as they insisted, I stopped. I turned around and saw the sister on the ground, then walked back toward her… The sister had fallen on a piece of wood…Continue
006 – The Three Pillars of Salvation: The Bible says that there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood. And the three are in agreement. If there is the Spirit, but not water, something is missing. If there is the Spirit, the water but not the blood, there is something missing. The Word says that the Spirit, the water and the blood testify and all…Continue

005 – How to Have a Better Control of Our Tongue: GOD said that if we put bits into the mouths of horses, we can control their bodies. This Word is teaching you and I that if we are wise people, if we know GOD, and if we have studied Hid Word, we should be able to say good things. If we do so, then our whole body can be controlled. (…Continue

004 – God’s Choice: Today, people want to look attractive to the others, for example through their beautiful words, their beautiful clothes, their nice characters/tempers, their degrees, their mastery of French or English. But in reality, GOD watches people’s hearts. He doesn’t look at your degrees, nor your beauty, or your smart words to make a decision, but your heart. (…Continue

Guys, here's the trailer to the movie I just released. The true story of Rene Yohe, a CRU missionary kid, who fell into drugs and alcohol and then into cutting...an epidemic in high-schools today! Fortunately, her Christian friends saved her life and got her into rehab. That started a global movement called To Write Love On Her Arms. She travels and speaks today to teenagers to give them a message of hope. We're praying that the movie saves more lives. …Continue

Ministry leaders are the busiest people I know. I am certain of this because I am one.

I'm hoping for a reformation in the way that we tell stories on screen, and part of my contribution to that reformation is watching popular Christian-made films with a critical eye, and writing about it.
I invite the members of the Visual Story Network to check out my reviews, and I'd love to discuss them further, if anyone is interested.
Here's my latest - The…
Recently I was meeting with a troubleshooter for one of the top financial institutions in the world. I’ll call him Bill. Bill’s job is to go into departments that were in “in trouble” and to help them sort out the issues that led to their demise. In the course of the conversation, Bill revealed an insight that I think is useful for us.
He said one of the first places he looks when he reviews a department is not in the details like balance sheets, profit and loss statements,…Continue
