Jesus Always: 365 Devotions For Kids is an adaption by Tama Fortner based upon the book by Sarah Young of the same title. Young is also the author of the bestseller Jesus Calling.
Many years ago, before I was a filmmaker, I was a children’s ministry director. I taught children’s church every Sunday for almost five years, and was always on the lookout for ways to share the plan of salvation in ways that children could understand. I would have appreciated these animated tracts by Let the Little Children Come.
Matthew West is one of my favorite musical artists, so I was excited to get the opportunity to review his latest cd, All In. I got it last week and couldn’t wait to pop it in and listen to it. I’m happy to announce, it was just as good as I expected. That’s one thing I like about Matthew West. He’s consistent. You know his music is going to be upbeat and catchy.
When I first started Faith Flix my desire was to help filmmakers promote their low budget Christian movies. But over the years, my mission has transitioned to helping filmmakers raise their bar and create higher level projects. With that in mind, I’m beginning a new series designed to study high quality films and analyze what it is that makes them successful. We begin with All Saints which released this past weekend.
In the years since we released our first movie, we’ve seen dramatic shifts in the industry. DVDs are slowly fading away as consumers steer instead towards streaming services. Besides Netflix, which is geared towards a mass market audience, many smaller companies are focused on faith-based and family entertainment. Crossflix is one of the newer ones to enter the market.
I love romance movies, chick flicks, and sappy dramas. But I realize that those are not first choice on my husband’s watch list. He wants something with a little action, or comedy, or cool cars. Chances are, if you’re married, you’ve run into the same dilemma. So I’ve put together a list of five movies that offer entertainment for both men and women.
It’s always fun to discover new music to enjoy. I received my copy of Forever while we were in the midst of filming, so I listened to it while gathering costumes and getting props ready between film days. I especially enjoyed the instrumentation as it has a very soothing feeling about it. The entire album has a gentle, peaceful sound.
