How To Get Your Life Back After The Holiday

TOO MUCH FUN

I tell my children this when everyone needs to wind down, “I think you are having too much fun.”

That can hit us all as we try to get our lives back to some type of normal after doing so much in such a short period of time.

Our holidays were clouded by my chronic pain. I know I’m not the only one out there who deals with chronic pain on a daily basis so if you are in this boat leave me a comment and I will definitely pray for you. I hope to communicate with you more about this in the future. I’ve been all about writing about cheerful things, but I’m going to try to be more open about the difficult things in my life.

I had two procedures on my back during the last two weeks of December. Not really good timing, but necessary. I spent a lot of time in my PJs resting a lot. My girls took over most of the cooking etc. so we continued as planned, I just participated less than usual.

The photo above shows you my favorite gifts. I got a wonderful daughter-in-law earlier this year and they just announced that they are going to have a baby.

We’ve prayed for Godly spouses for our children since they were little – I mean really little. This marriage has the Lord’s hand all over it. It’s been a beautiful joining of two families, each giving a piece of their hearts so the Lord could start a new family. We are blessed beyond what we ever expected. If you aren’t praying for your children’s spouses start now.

"Elijah and George" Historical Fiction Film
Category: History
Tags: Revolutionary War George Washington Battle of Monmouth Family Friendly Independent Film Family Freedom Home

When I was 3, I begged my mom to teach me how to read, and she did. As I approached school age, my parents weren't sure what grade to put me in, so they decided to homeschool me... and, eventually, my 6 younger siblings. Growing up, I read voraciously, devouring books of many different genres and lengths. Some of my favorites were historical fiction (especially the American Adventure series) and what I call "Biblical fiction" (books like "The Big Fisherman," '"The Robe," "The Bronze Bow," and the Arnold Ytreeide Advent storybooks). These books made important events come alive for me, with the historical figures becoming relatable and human. 

Fast-forward almost 2 decades. My parents are still homeschooling my younger siblings, and I just graduated from Liberty University with a degree in Cinematic Arts (aka filmmaking). People often ask what movie inspired me to get into filmmaking. I realized eventually that it wasn't any movie. It was the books I had read growing up. When I read, I imagined the people and events of the story vividly, essentially creating a movie in my head. Filmmaking, I've discovered, allows me to share with others the stories I picture in my mind. 

Now I'm working as a producer on a brand-new historical fiction feature film called "Elijah and George." This family-friendly movie is based on the book "George Washington's Army and Me," written and illustrated by Michael Dooling.  “Elijah and George” is an adventurous, at-times humorous story of family, freedom, and home set against the backdrop of the Revolutionary War. When young Elijah’s father does not return from the Battle of Monmouth, Elijah sets out alone to find him. 

In an age of divisive politics, political correctness, and other factions, this story celebrates wholesome, unifying values: the beauty of a loving family, the resilience of the human spirit as father and son fight to get back to each other, and the goodness of freedom and home. 

“Elijah and George” brings to light several important pieces of Revolutionary history, focusing on the women and children who followed the Continental Army and supported the soldiers. It includes accurate portrayals of characters such as Mary Hays (aka Molly Pitcher), Oneida Indian Polly Cooper, and teenage soldier Joseph Plumb Martin alongside the more well-known figures of General George Washington, General Charles Lee, and Lt. Col. Alexander Hamilton, etc. We have several historical experts on board as advisors to ensure accuracy in every aspect of the film, and the original story is based on letters and diaries from the period. 

So, how can you see this film? Right now we are in the funding and development stage. We have a completed screenplay and many of our principal roles have been cast. We are pursuing funding through multiple channels, including crowdfunding! All donations through our “For the People, By the People” Network for Good crowdfunding page are tax deductible. Every dollar is helpful and greatly appreciated!

We also have some wonderful educational resources available as perks for our donors!

What is your idea of a perfect Mother’s Day gift?

  • Flowers?

Dan doesn’t get me flowers now, although I love them. My cat destroys them. The only place I can keep them away from her is in the bathroom!

Candy? I have some health conditions and need to continue to lose weight.

Jewelry? I love earrings, but I have more than enough.

SO WHAT IS MY IDEA OF THE PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY GIFT?

 

What Do You Want For Mother’s Day?

After all, I am very practical. I still have that blower and use it now in my garage when leaves and dust blow in.

ONE YEAR I ASKED FOR A RHUMBA.

  • Another very practical gift.
  • We have a 70-pound indoor dog and an indoor cat which keeps that Rhumba very busy.
