Start Here

If you are like most of my readers, you want to share God’s story with someone important to you. You are a parent who wants to share God’s story with your kids, or you are a youth pastor or teacher who wants to share God’s story with your students. We all share a similar story; we each have a desire to share God’s story with someone we love.

Every story has a hero.

The Matrix has Neo. Lord of the Rings has Frodo. Star Wars has Luke Skywalker. Your kids and your students have you.

Frodo-Ring

Every hero has a goal.

As parents, our goal is to see our kids grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and man (Luke 2:52).

As pastors and teachers, our goal is to see others look more like Jesus (Romans 8:29).

We want to teach our kids and our students about God and His Word.

We want to help them understand God’s Story and we want to help them understand their place in God’s Story.

Simply put, we want to disciple others.

Every hero has a struggle.

The goal is easy enough – disciple our kids and students. So what’s the problem?

Sometimes this is easier said than done.

Sometimes they would rather watch TV or a movie.

Sometimes they are more interested in entertainment than they are education.

Sometimes they simply check out at a well-known Bible story.

Sometimes they just want to watch their favorite movie or TV show for the 100th time.

Every hero has a mentor.

Neo has Morpheus. Frodo has Gandalf. Luke Skywalker has Obi-Wan. You have me.

Let me help you share God’s Story with your kids! Let me be your Morpheus. Let me be your Gandalf. Let me be your Obi-Wan.

Like Jesus often did, I will show you how to share God’s Word with movies. I will show you how to use entertainment as a vehicle for education.

Like Paul also did, I will show you how to use our culture to share God’s story (Acts 17:16-34).

Every hero takes action!

    1. Hey, thanks, Emily!

      I didn’t know they were a Christian band when I wrote it. I was blown away with how “Biblical” the idea of the song was!

      A kid in my AWANA class who loves them told me about them and informed me they were Christians.

      So, what other album should I check out first?
