She’s a feature film maker of Faith & Family (Unexpected Places, A Horse Called Bear) media and turns testimonies into stories that show the hope we have in Christ.

We wanted a shorter name that captured the essence of telling or revealing to others the Truth of God.
What impact do you hope to have on people?
We want to point people to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We want people to realize that Jesus saves and redeems regardless of what they have done. There is always hope in Christ.
Why do you think it’s important to share testimonies through media?
I believe it gives hope to those who are struggling . . . and also to loved ones of those struggling. When they hear how God has redeemed a person who has struggled and has been restored, it gives them hope that God can also work in their situation.
Why is distribution so important?
It’s the only way to get the story out. It’s the only way to get financial remuneration to pay for costly equipment and the next film project.
Which piece of equipment can you not live without?
Camera and audio equipment.
I wanted people to know of the power of God’s redemption and that even though the situation can seem impossible, God can redeem.
Do you use a location scout or do you scout on your own?
I’ve done all my own location scouting, but I take leads from others also.
At the end of the day what would you most like to hear people say about your films?
It has given them hope that God is with them and willing to redeem all who seek Him and trust Him. That I’ve told a story in an entertaining and compelling way that wants them draw closer to our Savior.
