Several years ago I began studying whole books of the Bible by drawing a simple sketch of each scene, trying to capture all the important details, and then incorporating them into very large (5 ft x 7 ft) paintings of the entire book. I have completed Mark (95 scenes), Acts (85 scenes), the Life of Abraham (61 scenes) and Revelation, as well as smaller paintings of the first 7 chapters of John.
Here is the Mark 1-9…Continue

All followers of Jesus have the privilege of carrying his life and light to others. One of the last things Jesus impressed upon his followers was the need to do this. In Matthew 28, Jesus tells his people to impart to others what he entrusted to them ("all that I have commanded you"). They are to embrace his teaching to the extent that they identify with him publicly and in community ("baptizing them…").

I did not realize it had been a whole year since I last entered a blog...will try and start getting better at making more frequent visits! I have enjoyed reading everyone else so much I don't really feel worthy but I know we all have something to contribute. It may not be what the majority likes, but it also may be something that someone else loves...and with that in mind I submit another blog entry...
I took a wonderful writing class from a friend who goes to my church who writes…Continue
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 list the most…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.

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
