Filmmaking: Business or Ministry Part II

Filmmaking: Business or Ministry Part II

As far as I know, none of my filmmaking friends gets up in the morning and says, “I want to really make a failure of a film.”  No, we all have good intentions. Our good intentions cover several areas.  One, we intend to be successful in our chosen field of work.  Two, we expect other […]

Filmmaking: Business or Ministry Part I

Filmmaking: Business or Ministry Part I

I am an independent Christian filmmaker and I have faced the question, is filmmaking a business or is it ministry? Selling the Gospel? I was at a conference where we were screening our film Indescribable.  A lady came to our table and explained that they weren’t able to attend the screening but they were curious […]

“Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them…”  Ps. 127:3-5

The highlight of every summer for all the cousins is to attend “Camp Grammy”.  This summer was no exception.  Mummies, papyrus, pyramids and crocodiles all came to life as we studied, made crafts and acted out the life of Ancient Egypt.   Along with the activities, we also try and film a Bible story video with […]

Just Like My Father

Just Like My Father

I did not always want to be just like my father.  But for more than twenty years now there have been a few things that made me want to be like my father.  From earliest childhood memories, my Dad was always working on something: a chainsaw, a typewriter, a sawmill, it was always mechanical in […]

After the running video, Peter decided to make his second video on his next favorite subject, astronomy!  As an added blessing, Grammy was able to be the co-host.

Blessings of 2015

Blessings of 2015

As per our usual New Years Day custom, Stacie and I sat down to review our goals and see how we did on our projects this year.  Turns out that we did not finish any of our film or writing projects.  We spent a lot of time working on them.  We made huge strides of […]

Peter’s First Movie

by Stacie Graber

Peter's First Movie

A peaceful Sunday afternoon.  Joseph is sitting on the couch enjoying a book.  Peter enters and busily begins to tug and pull at our lamp stand.  “What are you doing, Peter?”  “I am getting the lights ready so I can interview you for my movie.” “You are making a movie?” “Yes, I want to make a running […]

Is Suffering God’s Will?

by Joseph Graber

Is Suffering God's Will?

It’s a question that most of us have asked at some point, is suffering God’s will?  You’re standing at a graveside, pondering the life choices that led to the early death of a loved one and some well meaning person will say, “Well, it was the will of God”.  But deep inside you wonder, “But […]

At the Beach

by Stacie Graber

At the Beach

The highlight of my childhood summer days was to visit my grandparents who lived down by the Gulf and they would take us to the beach.  Even as a child, I couldn’t wait until the day I would bring my children to the beach and share with them the same joy of discovering God’s strange […]

Consistency

by Joseph Graber

Consistency

Consistency. The thickness of paint, or the regularity of doing something.  Normally I think of consistency as doing something on a regular basis,  but having a growing son has helped me think of consistency in a different way. Peter has been a world traveler in his two and a half years.  Peru,  France, Switzerland, Italy, and all […]

The Battle

by Joseph Graber

The Battle

Sometimes in the thick of the battle you can forget who your enemy is.  That happened to me recently.  Actually, it happens to me more often than I care to admit.  I love my family dearly, but all to often I find the old nature trying to dig in to protect my flesh.  Those are […]
