Stained Glass Theatre update

Ah….. Last night was opening night, and it went quite well. We had a sizable audience, and it was really fun to be able to be in a show that made people laugh, and to be able to encourage them with the amazing story of George Mueller. I know that I didn’t have a very big part, but it was still  really cool to have at least a small part in it- now we’ve only got to do 14 more shows!


Yikes! We’ve gotten 1,000 views in just a little over a month! Thanks for watching our movies!

How to fix a bike with a flat tire

To those with no sense of imagination, going about he process of tire repair may seem simple, but, if you’re like us, you know that there is always more than one way to do anything. If you were to ask an average person to make a list of the ways you could fix a bike tire, they’d probably be able to come up with only one option- getting a new tube- but Luke came up with a second option-take off the tires altogether and ride on the metal rims!

Isaac and his lightsaber (A.K.A. bat)

Isaac, Paul and I did some filming a few weeks ago, and I’ve spent the time in between then and now editing and adding effects to the clips that we filmed. The effects weren’t any more extensive than in the Lightsaber movie we made last year, but it was, in ways, harder to do, since Isaac jumped around a lot more than John and I did, and made it a lot more challenging to rotoscope the lightsaber without making it look as if Isaac was being cut in half by his “lightsaber”. I think that it turned out well, and I hope that you enjoy watching it!

Book Review: Jesus+Nothing=Everything

I recently had the privilege of reading Jesus+Nothing=Everything by Tullian Tchividjian. This book talks about how we too often place our hopes in Jesus and something else. This “something else” doesn’t have to be bad- it could be something good like family or a job- but if this “something else”  becomes so important to us that we think that we cannot go on without  Jesus and it, then it must be rooted out.

Mr. Tchividjian repeatedly talked about how we must continually rely on Jesus as our only means of support. He said that, not only should we think that Jesus+Nothing=Everything, we should think that Everything-Jesus=Nothing. This, he said, is often the most difficult part of our Christian lives, as we come to the realization that unless we have a vibrant relationship with Jesus we have gained nothing of true value.

Mr. Tchividjian quoted C.S. Lewis, when he said:

“We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is                          offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot                       imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”

He said that often our sin is not that of expecting too much joy and fulfillment in Jesus, but it is the opposite: we are, as C.S. Lewis said, “far too easily pleased” by the temporary pleasures of this world.

I was greatly blessed by reading this book, and would give it 5 out of 5 stars.

A poem about pi

“There is a mistake in Geometry books,
Open one up and go take a look:
They all say that “Pi R2 ”-
You do not find square pies anywhere!
Pies are round and cakes are square,
Just look around you everywhere!”

Mom advertisement

My Mom was reading us a goofy story about how to take care of Mom’s, and I got the inspiration to create this advertisement. I hope you enjoy it! (My Mom said it was “cute” which, I think, is a compliment)
