National Novel Writing Month

As many of you know, Summer of '67 is our last film. We're leaving the film world, and I am transitioning over to writing and speaking. I attended the American Christian Fiction Writers this fall, met an agent who is interested in my Victorian novel, and now I just need to get it written and…

CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible – Review

I love devotional and study Bibles, especially those specifically designed for women. I have a stack of them, each with their own unique slant. The CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible, though, is completely different than any of my others. First, the design of the Bible is pretty. It's feminine and elegant looking with pastel designs around…

James C. Peters – Screenwriter and Script Consultant

For some reason, many filmmakers think they can just throw together a story and make a movie. But screenwriting is so much more than just a story. It's an art that requires skill and training in order to properly bring a story to life on the big screen. Screenwriters need consultants to point out weaknesses…

Indivisible – Movie Review

In case you haven't noticed, this is the season for military-themed faith-based films.

From the moment I saw the trailer, I knew I…

Since my son-in-law, Clay Herd, grew up with Adventures in Odyssey, I knew he'd enjoy the chance to read and review Young Whit, an Adventures in Odyssey chapter book. I was right. He did enjoy it. Guest Post by Rev. Clay Herd. As a fan of Adventures in Odyssey, I was excited to review this…

Thirsty for More – Book Review

As soon as I saw the title of the book, and then underneath it, "Discovering God's unexpected blessings in a desert season", I knew I wanted to read Thirsty for More. Even though I'm not going through the desert right now, I know I will again in the future, and I want to be prepared. Not…

Little Women – Movie Review

It's been a while since I've read Little Women, but it's my favorite book from that time period, so I was eager to see what a modern retelling in movie form would look like. The movie does a good job of capturing the essence of the story and transferring it to a contemporary setting. Many…

Summer of ’67 – The Music
