The Fiery Furnace

by Stacie Graber

The Fiery Furnace

We serve an amazing God!  I loved the chance to meditate on the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego as we filmed the next cousin video – The Fiery Furnace.  The boys that played the 3 heroes really understood their parts and as we were filming, I could hear them ad-libbing their lines, “we will […]

Peter Marshall - Additional Thoughts From A Four Year Old

*Peter requested that we piece three videos together to finish his thoughts from yesterday- he couldn’t say everything in one video because his brother kept making interuptions in the background-  so we did that for him. From Peter Marshall:  I just really like how God died on the cross for me. And I really love […]

Peter Marshall - Thoughts from a 4-year-old

There is a new vlogger in town!  While the parents were working, Peter took Mama’s phone into another room and decided to do some “work” too and make a vlog, just like Papa. In his own words: “This is my very first Vlog.  I hope you like it. I love how God has been working […]

It’s a…

It's a...

“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

10 Plagues

10 Plagues

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

by Joseph Graber

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Happy Mother’s Day

by Joseph Graber

Happy Mother's Day

This morning at church we sang this song in honor of Mother’s Day. This evening we decided to record it for our mothers- Peter and Eric’s Grammy and Mamaw. We are so blessed to have Mothers who pray for us! Thank You Mama for Praying for Me Somebody somewhere was praying that night When Jesus […]

My Twin Sister

by Joseph Graber

My Twin Sister

Every once in a while I find something in one of my sketch books or notebooks that I think is worth sharing on this blog; the following was a note I posted on Facebook several years ago. My sister Ruth has been visiting us this weekend and we were remembering this post so I thought […]

Going to Church

by Joseph Graber

Going to Church

A glimpse into Saturday night when I was growing up as the son of an Old Order Amish Preacher.  On Saturday night Mom started heating water. My sisters and I cleared the supper table and washed the dishes while the smell of starch and steam permeated the house. In between ironing and starching shirts, aprons, […]

Loving Stacie

by Joseph Graber

Loving Stacie

Today is Valentine’s Day.  Duh, right?  But four years ago today I asked Stacie to marry me and my life has been absolutely blessed ever since.  Loving Stacie is one of the best decisions I have ever made- and continue making each day. But don’t expect this blog post to be very long, just watch […]

Two Ways – A Chalk Art Story

by Joseph Graber

Two Ways - A Chalk Art Story

Scared In Sunday School Chalk art has become a very large part of my story.  For the better part of my life I have thought of myself as an artist.  That’s why something I heard in Sunday School once scared me very much. I was a little Amish boy.  In Northwestern Montana the Amish community […]

Mom’s Favorite Nativity

by Stacie Graber

Mom's Favorite Nativity

My mom loves nativity sets.  Every year for Christmas, all of us children would put our heads together to see what we could use to make or create a new nativity set for her. What started as clothespins, sculpey clay and origami nativity sets became more and more elaborate as each year, we tried to outdo last year’s invention. The […]

If I Were An Amish Man

by Joseph Graber

If I Were An Amish Man

Twenty years after my parents were excommunicated I got to experience what I would look like if I were an Amish man. As part of making the documentary Breaking the Silence,  I grew out my beard and cut my hair in the Amish style.  This all happened over this past winter. It took me six months […]

A Joyful Noise

by Stacie Graber

A Joyful Noise

“O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.” ~ Psalms 95:1 God has richly blessed us in the form of this joyful, funny little fellow.  Peter has a ready smile for any stranger, loves giving hugs and kisses and always has a song in […]

“Go To A Land That I Will Show You”

by Stacie Graber

"Go To A Land That I Will Show You"

Genesis 12:1 – The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your native country…and go to the land that I will show you.” Earlier this Spring, our church, Living Water Fellowship, asked Joseph and me to consider and see if the Lord was leading us to move from Texas to Colorado to pastor a church plant in Denver.
