Enter to Win Patterns of Evidence DVD

August 16, 2017


After watching the DVD, the thing I like most was the honest portrayal of information. It was not biased or swayed in any one direction. The film presented straight forward reporting which was very informational.

 

A breakdown of the DVD:

The Bible’s Exodus account is under attack from many of the world’s leading experts who say there is no evidence for this foundational story – they claim it’s just a myth. Faced with the skepticism, filmmaker Timothy Mahoney experienced a crisis of faith. Mahoney had been investigating the Bible’s Exodus account, and this controversy forced him to refocus on one question – is there any evidence that this foundational story really happened?

The result of the 12-year investigation was the feature-length documentary film, Patterns of Evidence: the Exodus. It reveals a powerful and faith-affirming pattern of evidence matching the major events of the Bible’s Exodus and Conquest accounts in the archaeology of Egypt and Israel. This evidence has been largely unrecognized because it exists in an earlier period of history than where most scholars are looking. Yet the historical information in the Bible itself points to the Exodus happening in a historical period that is centuries earlier than the standard view today.

Mahoney combines a vivid retelling of the biblical story with interviews of top authorities from both sides of the debate in an investigation spanning the ancient and modern worlds. His bold new approach identifies six primary steps of the Exodus account before looking for evidence matching these steps wherever it exists in Egypt‘s history. The results are startling and could fundamentally transform the way the world views history and the Bible.

We had frozen chicken so I made our meal a bit differently from the instructions on the box. I placed the frozen chicken and two flavor packets mixed with 1/2 cup of water in a pan and cooked it in the oven. Once baked, I cut it into bite size piece.

 

The grain I made as the box instructed. I have to say the light blue color was exciting to see. I brought the water to boil, turned off the stove, placed a lid on the pan and let it sit until the chicken was done. Very very easy to make. 

 

My family found the flavor to be rather mild. We don't really go for strong spices so that was fine. I cooked more chicken than the instructions asked for, which added to the mild flavor. Two chicken breasts just weren't enough to feed five people.

Mandisa Out of the Dark CD Giveaway

May 22, 2017

Mandisa has a new CD release titled "Out of the Dark". It is a very personal look into her life and journey through depression. You really gain an understanding of her position with the tracks that include voice overs from friends phone calls trying to reach out to her. Every song is uplifting, upbeat, and typical Mandisa sound. The CD is a great testimony to the good work God does. 

 
Story Behind The Album:
 
 
 
 
Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called 'Out Of The Dark' because that is exactly where God lifted her out of! 
 
Acoustic Video for "Unfinished”:

April 5, 2017

This past weekend my family was invited to see a press release of the new Smurf movie The Lost Village. It inspired us to try our hand at making a quick and easy Smurf hat from a white t-shirt. 

In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!

Rated PG

How to make the Smurf Hat:

Materials:

  • white t-shirt
  • pen
  • straight edge
  • sewing machine
  • hot glue
  • scissors

Directions:


1. Using the bottom edge of the t-shirt, place the side fold at the back of the head.  Wrap around your head to the front, do not stretch the shirt, and mark the spot.

 

draw curve
2. Lay the shirt flat, under the arm mark a small curve. I did so free-handed but you could definitely use a plate or glass to help draw the curve. 

 

draw line
3. From the mark you made at the bottom edge, draw a line up to the curve. 

 

sewing
4. Follow your drawn lines and sew inside the drawn line. This will give the hat a slightly tighter fit. 

 

sewn
I've sewn in a dark thread so you can see the shape but I would recommend you do so with a light colored thread. 

 

cut edge
5. Cut off the excess t-shirt from your sewn hat. I recommend about 1/4 of an inch.

 


inside out
6. Turn the hat inside out. Notice the seam is a bit longer than the rest.

 

cut sleeve
7. If you desire, you can cut the sleeve off and use it for stuffing the point of the hat. This is what we did. I would also recommend something lightweight to do so like filler or even newspaper.

 

stuff
8. Stuff the tip of the hat.

 

hot glue
9. If you notice in the movie the edge around their heads is rather rounded.
I folded up the seamed edge two times, using hot glue to hold it in place.
The sewn edge where it was a bit longer can get tucked in now and glued.

10. Now your hat is finished and ready to wear.

The Gospel of Mark DVD - Giveaway

March 17, 2017

While the word of God can be read and discussed as well as preached, often there can still be a disconnection with the word. Seeing a visual moving picture fills in so many details that are unsaid with the word. This makes for a better understanding of the landscape, the style of the day as well as societal actions we may not be aware of just by hearing or reading. This is the case with The Gospel of Mark.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Following last year’s The Gospel of John comes the second installment in the renowned Gospel film series, The Gospel of Mark, arriving on DVD at Walmart, Digital HD and On Demand March 14 from Lionsgate. Just in time for Easter, the second book of The New Testament comes to life for the first time with a truly unique, word-for-word adaptation that uses the Gospel narrative as its script. Shot on location in Morocco with consultation from expert theologians and biblical scholars and produced by the Lumo Project, the film was given the Dove Faith Friendly Seal for 12+. The Gospel of Mark DVD is packed with behind-the-scenes bonus features and will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.
 
OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS
According to The Gospel of Mark, Jesus is a heroic man of action, an exorcist, healer, and miracle worker — the Son of God who keeps his identity secret. This critically acclaimed, epic production — five years in the making — is based on the latest theological, historical, and archaeological research, and offers an unforgettable, highly authentic telling of the Jesus story — ending with the empty tomb, a promise to meet again in Galilee, and Jesus’s instructions to spread the good news of the resurrection.
 
DVD/DIGITAL HD SPECIAL FEATURES 
  • “Deconstructing a Scene” Featurette 
  • “Building Jerusalem” Featurette 
  • “Composing the Gospels” Featurette 
  • “Filming the Gospels” Featurette 
  • “Narrating the Gospels” Featurette
