Nothing is Impossible: The Life and Work of Dr. Harold Finch

By Sarah Hartland on September 13, 2016

A young boy was sent to the principal’s office for doodling rocket ships in his math book. He wasn’t a bad little boy, just a dreamer, and space seemed much more interesting than the lesson he was supposed to be paying attention to. His name was Harold Finch.

The principal, who he would later describe as “a scary individual,” would tell him that day, “Harold, if you don’t get your mind out of the clouds, out of space, you’re never going to amount to anything.” He could have listened to this woman; some would say he should have. After all, she was older, wiser, and his authority. This visit to the principal’s office could have been the end of the story. Instead, it was just the beginning.

Harold’s aunt would later tell him the story of a boy in her fifth grade class in Kansas City, Missouri. This boy’s name was Walter, and he had recently moved to the area after his parent’s crop in rural Missouri had failed. She recalled that Walter was a bit ornery, not bad but just mischievous, and always getting in trouble for doodling in his textbooks. “Harold,” his aunt told him, “you remind me so much of him.” Her childhood classmate was Walt Disney.

From that day on, Harold began reading about this other doodler. He said, “I figured if this kid, who was a loser in grade school, not memorable to his classmates, if he could become something not just really good but amazingly great, extraordinary, why can’t I?”

7 Family Movies That Will Teach You to Defend Your Faith

By Greg Gudorf on September 7, 2016

9 Christian Movies that Teach the Fruit of the Spirit

By Sarah Hartland on August 1, 2016

In the summertime, fruit is on all our minds. Blueberry bushes are heavy in Oregon, peaches are ripening in Colorado, and California strawberries are being picked daily. We know fruit is good for us. Our bodies are made to crave certain nutrients found in fruit, like vitamin C and antioxidants.

But there’s another kind of fruit that’s always in season- the kind that’s good for your soul. We call them the Fruit of the Spirit, and the Apostle Paul describes them in Galatians 5:22-23: “But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!"

Family TV Series Goes Inside the Life of a Police Officer

By Justina Miller on July 28, 2016

Police have been a viral topic in recent news, and sadly the news is rarely good. Stories of police brutality and police shootings pepper our newsfeeds until we begin to expect another story to pop up. While we feel helpless, scrolling down our screen to find another police headline, it’s easy to disconnect from the humanity of the people in the story. Unless you’ve been a victim of police brutality, how can you understand how devastating that must be? And unless you’re a cop who’s been harmed for being a cop, how do you humanize that tragedy?

Streaming vs. DVD's for Christian and Family Movies

By Sarah Hartland on July 22, 2016

Once upon a time, if you wanted to watch a movie on a weekday night, you walked over to your local video rental store (probably a Blockbuster) and you paid more than five dollars to borrow a VHS tape for several days. When you were done, you replaced the tape in its plastic box and brought it back to where it came from, often paying a late fee because who can remember to return every rented movie without fail?
