​"There is no reason why challenging themes and engaging stories have to be mutually exclusive - in fact, each can fuel the other. As a filmmaker, I want to entertain people ...if out of that comes a greater awareness and understanding of a time or a circumstance, then the hope is that change can happen."   - Edward Zwick (Academy Award Winning Film Director/Producer)

Abandon. What a scary word. What a scary thought.

Some of us fear abandonment, and some of us have experienced it. Deeply. Personally. In times of abandonment, it’s hard not to ask why. Why do I deserve this? What have I done, that I would be left here? Alone.

Abandon shows how necessary it is for us to have someone to turn to when we have been abandoned. Really understanding abandonment means we need to love the abandoned.

Kevin and Petra are a homeless couple who struggle just to survive day-to-day. However, they realize that they must not give up on their dreams, hopes for a better future, steadfast love for each other and faith that God has the ultimate plan. They will not abandon each other and God will not desert us.

(This film is dedicated to the memory of PETRA HENSLER who tragically passed away January 30, 2016 from injuries sustained after being hit by a vehicle as she crossed a street with Kevin. You will forever be in our hearts.)

"People look at us differently; it's like they think all the homeless people are bad." (Petra)

It is pretty much the "way of the world" to look at somebody and instantly make a judgement based on what we see externally - your clothes, car, job, physical looks, house, and much more. These quick assessments can lead us to wrong conclusions time-after-time...we fail to see the one-of-a-kind miracle creation each human is.

Here are Kevin's powerful words about being judged: "People look at us differently; it's like they think all the homeless people are bad. There's a lot of people who judge us, and I don't want to be judged. God is the only one who can judge me. It's not fair for people to treat you like a piece of dirt, whether you're out here on the street. No matter where you're at, you're a human being."

“This film is dedicated to the memory of PETRA HENSLER who tragically passed away January 30, 2016 from injuries sustained after being hit by a vehicle as she crossed a street with Kevin. You will forever be in our hearts.”

Sometimes things happen in the "today's" that affect our tomorrow.

It's important to remember that though today affects tomorrow, today is still here for a reason. So in these moments, these today's we are blessed with, we must cherish them and make the most of the time we have. In the here, in the now. In the "today."

She has founded and helps run the Fellowship House Retreat Center in Israel. She has taken over 100 trips to the Holy Land, and doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon.

Trailer for short film

Dying Out Loud,  a short film, is the story of Stan and his family and their dedication to follow God no matter what the cost. None of their adventures sharing the gospel with the people of Istanbul, Turkey, and the nomadic tribes in the Triangle of Terror would compare to where God led them next - a journey into Stage-4 colon cancer. Yet even there, they discovered peace, grace and new hope for the lost around them.
