My daughter Emily has a dream – to be an actress in films and to project her faith while doing so. She knows that it’s an impossible dream. One in a million ever really hit the big time, and of those, how many are able to stay pure? I can’t think of any at the moment.
 
So, Emily knows what it is to dream and to struggle to keep a dream alive. She’s sold out and is learning every aspect of the film-making business as a member of Whitestone Motion Pictures, an Atlanta-based production company.
 
She created a two-minute film as a wish-upon-a-star prayer for all those moms out there who struggle to keep their dream alive in a world of wet blankets. Check out her effort at this link.
 
Its message is what I want to say to my mom and  to moms everywhere: You are loved.
 
We dads and children don’t tell you nearly often enough how incredible you are. You spend your days sacrificially giving – feeding us, picking up after us, training us, and shuttling us around. Most of the time we barely grunt our gratitude. But today, shaken to a state of awareness, we want to set things right. And if we could give you your dreamland, we would.

  • Great Job Emily! I actually teared up.

    It is so incredible being a mother! He is worth the sacrifice!!!! Had a great day!

  • Made me cry as well. Seth and Karen, how proud (the right kind of pride) you must be of your daughter as well as the other four young adults God entrusted to you to raise. I pray that God will give Emily His favor and that she will continue to use her gifts to glorify her Master. Love to you all this Mother’s Day.

  • Emily!! This ROCKS!!! Amie’s surprised face made my heart happy and I didn’t bawl, but I DID tear up! (I think that’s what you were going for, no?) 🙂

    You’re amazing and you’re going places…I can’t wait to see where following your dreams takes you!

    Hollywood…what’s yaur dream??

    love you!

  • This was great. It would be good to consider connecting with the people at the Regent University School of Communications in Virginia Beach. Their film school is very competitive and when I was there working they actually won a student Oscar award. Check them out. The Dean is a friend….Love you.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
