Give the Gift of Life

toms shoes 98

A pair of these Toms Shoes will set you back $98. Buy these and Toms will help one person in need.  One for One is their motto. Right now our friends at Adventures in Life are offering you a chance to help a whole family in Oaxaca for life.  For $99 you can buy a Sawyer Water Filter for a family in one of the areas Adventures works in.  Areas where availability of clean drinking water is scarce and they can’t always afford to buy bottled water, so they drink water that is not clean or safe.  They have no choice.  A Sawyer Water Filter will filter 1 million gallons of water in its lifetime.  Realistically, for the life of the family!

This #cyberMonday and #givebackTuesday consider giving the gift of Clean Water!  You can learn more about Adventures in Life’s plan to give Sawyer Water Filters to the areas where they minister at the following link> http://conta.cc/1yE8RJp

Praying for our friend Trevor

Our friend Trevor is battling cancer.  He was diagnosed earlier this year and has begun chemo and radiation treatment to beat down the cancer. Then the Doctors will go in and cut it out.  Please join us as we pray that God would fully heal Trevor.  That the Doctors would have the wisdom and discernment to know how to best treat Trevor and that God would be glorified in his life.  Pray for his wife Alicia and their 2 kids as well.   All Glory to God!  Thanks!

Choose Wisely :: Using Photography to Bless and Encourage

DSC_3499Our goal is to use photography to bless others, serve our fellow man, and bring glory to God in all we do.  Last weekend we had the honor of photographing Military Families in San Diego.  Many of the families hadn’t had formal portraits of their family in some time, due to the demands of Military life…

Dunhill has created a series of videos, Dunhill “Voices,” highlighting people who exemplify  “elegance and achievement.”

This video of photographer Don McCullin is quite extraordinary.  He is known in the photography world as a “war time photographer,” a term he hates.  His words are haunting and compelling.  A reminder of why we choose to photograph the good, the beautiful…things that encourage and bless.  You don’t have to be a photographer to appreciate this little video.  There a lessons to be learned on many different levels.  Thanks to David Sims for creating this beautiful video.
