*note: the video is about 9 minutes long so... although it may be earth-friendly it may not be time-friendly...depending on your relation to the family.

Whiskerino 2007

Whiskerino is a beard event that began on November 1st and ends on February 29th. I joined about 400 other testosterone laden men for one hairy adventure. Kirsten is very patient with my sometimes odd lifestyle.

The image on the left if what I looked like on November 1st. The image on the right is the bearded me.

Enjoy and may the growth be with you (beard growth that is).

Film-Based Curriculum

It's that time again...Click the images below to WIN!

December Giveaway

Modern Parables is "an original Bible study curriculum designed for people who like movies. It is the first in a planned series of film-driven studies on the parables. The films are uniquely designed to parallel the original parable and thereby drive the viewer back toward the Biblical text. The 12-lesson study (with 6 additional lessons on cinema and theology) uses short dramatic films that explain Jesus' parables using the particular strength of the cinematic medium. In other words, just watching the films helps teach the historical, grammatical, contextual and interpretive elements in the parables." They are ideal for Bible studies, youth groups, homeschool curriculum, church libraries, and so on.

December Giveaway

First prize: Modern Parables box set which includes all the DVDs, a member book and a leader book, six movie posters (one for each parable...posters measure 11"x17") and ten student books (a value of over $250!).

Third Prize: Modern Parables box set.
