Yearly Planning at the Sather House Tags: Purposeful Planning Planning seeking the Lord

This is the 23rd year we are setting aside a week to pray and seek the Lord about His plans for us and our family.

When I look back I can see some of what that consistency has accomplished. Many things would not have happened if we had not set aside this time each year to connect with the Lord and each other.

It brought tears to my eyes when my son told me he and his bride had a little planning day on their honeymoon! He had asked for a copy of the book - Purposeful Planning - but I didn't realize that was his purpose for wanting it.

Starting Saturday, January 19th we will spend the better part of each day for the next week talking and praying with each other and our two daughters who are still at home. Yes, they are adults, but they really want to have their time to talk and pray with us. Isn't that wonderful!

As usual, we would like to ask you to pray for us during this time. We NEED your prayers. Our enemy doesn't want us to spend this time seeking God's plans for our lives. He wants us to fail, and our family to fail.

"Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour." I Peter 5:8

Our Scripture for this book is "Where there is no vision the people perish." Proverbs 29:18

This time is when we check our course. Are still walking the way the Lord wants us to? Are we going the way we planned, or have we somehow gotten off on the wrong trail?

I had a lesson on this yesterday when going to meet my friend. Thinking away I suddenly realized I was on the wrong street. I ended up being a half hour late because I wasn't paying attention. I had signs, like not remembering some things along the way I was on. But it took me a while to realize that I was lost.

Please leave me a comment telling me you will be praying for us. It will really encourage us. I'll try to drop some notes next week as well updating you on our progress.

"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!

Please feel free to share with friends and family! Thank you for helping us bring this important story to life to spark the interest of more young people in our nation's history!
