Between Heaven & Hollywood, Chasing Your God Given Dream

Have you ever wondered if God has a purpose for you? Have you ever wondered if the dreams you have are God given? Have you wondered how to go about these dreams? Wondered if you were on the right track? Or wondered if this setback was God's way of telling you to stop pursuing your dream? Friend, you are not alone!

David A.R. White knows exactly how you feel. In his new book Between Heaven & Hollywood, Chasing your God Given Dream, David shares his own personal experiences of his own dreams, his God given dreams. Growing up in a Mennonite home on the wheat fields of Kansas, David knew God had a big purpose.

David assures you that your dreams might just be the most important part of your life. He tells you that while your dream might be in your heart, it didn't start there. It started with God. And he encourages you how to pursue your dreams in a Biblical way.
"If you live God's dream for you, nothing is impossible."

David A.R. White is an actor, director, writer, producer, and co-founder of PureFlix. But first, David is a man of God, husband and father. Join David on this journey Between Heaven & Hollywood and pick up his book today!

The Lord's Prayer

Often we hear people say that they just don't know what to pray. Thankfully the Lord tells us exactly how to pray.

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
Matthew 6:9-13

I love the Lord's prayer. I love how Jesus tells us to pray. He reminds us to give thanks, to forgive and ask His forgiveness. Close your eyes and pray this beautiful prayer right now. Let the words sink into your heart.

Pastor Rick Warren, author of Purpose Driven Life, has a new children's book  that introduces your little one to the Lord's Prayer. The Lord's Prayer, Words of Hope and Happiness brings the Lord's Prayer alive as it teaches your child how the Lord wants us to pray. With beautiful illustrations, your family will love The Lord's Prayer, Words of Hope and Happiness.

The Berenstain Bears Holiday Cookbook

I love to cook and that love has passed on to my daughter. My 15 year old refers to our kitchen as her kitchen and she has even gone as far as to ask for new small appliances for Christmas (hand mixer, blender, etc.). We love that she enjoys cooking and baking.

Cooking with my kids has always been fun. Yes, I know, the mess can get out of control when you invite little ones to cooking time. But the memories are so worth it and I love that they learn so much. When learning to cook, they are learning math and science as well as learning something they will in fact need when they get older. So why not let them cook with you?

The Berenstain Bears Holiday Cookbook is a great tool to teach your children to cook. With recipes for Valentine's Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas, your child will love cooking for holidays. My favorite part is the Scripture verse and story before each holiday. Check out just one of the recipes:

Young cooks and their adult assistants will find the recipes for beverages, meals, sides and sweets and treats. The Berenstain Bears Holiday Cookbook makes a great gift. Pick up the ingredients for one of the recipes and include the book and a family will be blessed with a fun gift. Or pick up the book for your own kids. Check out The Berenstain Bears Holiday Cookbook!

Good Good Father {giveaway}

Sometimes I just sit and watch my kids. I love to hear them interact with each other, watch them play their instruments, read the Bible, or just sit there and do nothing. There are times it moves me to tears. Tears of love, joy, pride and thankfulness. Yes, they do mess up sometimes. There are even times they break my heart. But my love for them never ever waivers and never ever fades.

Then I think of our Father. Just as my love for my kids cannot falter and just as I love to watch my kids, the Father loves me even more. His love is powerful and good in a way that we can never understand, no matter how hard we try.

He is our good Father and loves us. #goodgoodfather

He is so good and loves us so deeply. Think of your own children, how incredibly powerful your love for them is. Now understand that the Father loves you even more. Wow! It is amazing, isn't it? The Father loves you friend. He loves you and me and He is good. 

Some search and search in this life for someone or something to love them and care for them. But we don't have to search, He is right there. Even when things in our life are not going as we think they should, He is right there by our side. He is working behind the scenes in ways we don't even realize and holding His arms out to comfort us.

Yes, He is our good good Father.

Inspired by Chris Tomlin's Grammy Award winning song, Good Good Father, Chris and Pat Barrett bring us Good Good Father the book. The life of Tucker, a little bear, and the townspeople is changed forever when they learn just how great the King's love is for them. When the need the King, the castle door is always open.
