Last Tuesday myself, Christie, our cinematographer Nathanael of Heschle Video Production, and Christie’s sweet boyfriend Will (and talented second shooter) set out on the coastal bluffs of Santa Barbara in search of a field of mustard seed to film her story. The mustard seed in California this time of year is nothing short of magical.
I was moved by Christie’s humility, courage and willingness to share “her story” which she says is really not “her story,” but the story God’s redemption and faithfulness in her life. I know with full confidence you girls and countless more will be moved by her testimony. Thank you sweet Christie for your willing heart! One of our many prayers for our “Wonderfully Made: HerStory” film series is for it to inspire girls to shamelessly share their redemption stories for God’s glory.
It will probably be several months or more before we unveil our new series and we covet your prayers for this project – that the Lord will be magnified through each testimony and use each as He desires. Please pray for financial provision and guidance. We need to raise $8,000 to complete our 2011 film series.
Here are some artysy-fartsy iPhone pictures from our time together:
PS: Tonight Kayla and I are headed to Point Loma University in San Diego for their official chapter launch event! We are so excited to have our 4th WM college chapter in California and for how God is going to move on this campus through the phenomenal leadership team He has handpicked! More to come (and more prayers coveted). xo
Love ya girls. May you always remember that you are loved and that you are enough.
