Paper Dream Giveaway

Late last summer American Family Studios began filming a short movie that has a wonderful message...a message that we don't hear much in today's world. The message?  That God IS sovereign.  That He created all and He is all.

Psalm 73:  25-26  Whom have I in heaven but You?  And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.  My flesh and my heart fail;  but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

My husband and oldest son both worked hard on this project.  Jordan was the second assistant camera while Jeff was the producer and also composed the original soundtrack minus one or two pieces.  I have to say that when I watched this for the first time a couple of months ago I was pleasantly surprised.  I wasn't sure about how the story of a barren woman would apply to me, but as it unfolded I could see my own barreness....not of the womb, but in other areas.  I alternately laughed and cried as we watched this short film.  I think you will as well.

Today this film premiers locally and the proceeds will benefit a local adoption agency.   I have one copy of this dvd to give away to a blog reader.  It also includes two other films, both nominated as finalists in the San Antonio Independent Film Festival.  Jeff also produced and wrote the soundtrack for  one of them, Divorcing God. 

If you would like to recieve this copy of Paper Dream, leave me a comment and will have a drawing early next week.  I think you will be blessed!

Paper DreamChristy had a dream...
For as long as she can remember, Christy Davis has wanted to be a mom, but things haven’t worked out the way she imagined them. When hopes of getting pregnant fall through, she and her husband Matt turn to adoption, but will that be enough to fill their longing for a child?
American Family Studios is proud to present a story of hope in the midst of difficult circumstances. Do unfulfilled dreams define who we are, or is God enough to give us fulfillment?

Flame On: A True Story of Hope in the Midst of Great Personal Tragedy 
How would you react when tragedy strikes? Would your faith in an all loving God waver? Would you turn your back on the Lord? Flame On was filmed just months after the extreme loss of a loved one, and follows the Jasper family through the true heart wrenching and faith stretching question of "Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?" Watch and marvel at how a strong Christian family deals with the emotions of shock, loss and grief from a Biblical perspective. Flame On illustrates the struggle between the sovereignty of God and human responsibility while examining how faith in the Lord Jesus Christ can take you from the very bottom of despair to victory through tragedy. Flame On s a 'must see' for those grieving the loss of a loved one and will leave you with the peaceful knowledge that we serve a gracious, loving God who gives us light through the dark moments of life. "There are no words to describe how we hurt," says J.J. Jasper. "But God's sovereignty and His character do not change. He is still a good God. We knew that intellectually and now we know it experientially." 
Runtime: Approx. 40 minutes 
16 x 9 widescreen

Divorcing God: Secularism and the Republic 
Divorcing God is a look at what the Founding Fathers believed about morality and religious faith as the pillars of our government and nation, and the dangers posed by secular humanism. Divorcing God also explores the historical patterns of the lives of nations and empires - from birth and growth to prosperity, weakness, decay and death. The film is not just about doom and gloom, however. “Divorcing God is a hopeful presentation of the power of our Christian faith and the power of renewal,” said AFA president Tim Wildmon. “The film represents AFA’s very reason for existence: We believe Christians should get informed about what’s happening in our country and get involved.” 

Interviewees include Hadley Arkes, professor of jurisprudence at Amherst College; Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute; Daniel Dreisbach, professor of public affairs at American University; Michael Farris, constitutional attorney and chancellor of Patrick Henry College; Matthew Franck, professor of political science at Radford University; Robert George, professor of jurisprudence at Princeton University; George Grant, author and founder of King’s Meadow Study Center; Peter Lillback, professor of historical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary; Judith Reisman, visiting professor of law at Liberty University School of Law; and Matthew Spalding, director of the B. Kenneth Simon Center for American Studies at the Heritage Foundation

Paper Dream sounds like a movie that a lot of people could relate to. I have so many friends who have had pregnancy difficulties. I pray that God uses this movie in many ways to help believers and unbelievers.
