This short film is a powerful story of a father and son reconnecting through a series of letters back and forth. 



Grab a tissue and watch the power a few words can make to the relationship of a father and son.  This film will include an original song, that you'll have playing on repeat. 


Many books have been written about the father-son relationship. Most of the readers are well-meaning fathers looking for helpful advice on how to build a relationship with their sons and impact them in a real, meaningful way from older wise men, who have done it. These “successful” fathers usually provide a step-by-step plan describing what they did to connect with their son. This book is different. 


This book is written from a son's perspective. At the beginning of each chapter, you’ll encounter a letter written from a son to his father asking important questions, expressing doubts, and sharing experiences during growing up from adolescence to becoming a young man. Young men have a lot of questions, questions about life, about love, about God, about finding meaning, about finding purpose, about pursuing a passion, about living courageously, that they rarely verbalize. Through the son’s perspective offered in this book, you’ll develop a meaningful understanding of the young man in your life.



 This book can be the turning point in your journey of connecting or reconnecting with your son. The impact of fathers on their sons cannot be overstated. It's time to get intentional about walking together, with fathers leading the charge! Father, this book will encourage you to stop being a bystander and will equip you with the tools and biblical principles to impact your son. Reading this book with your son will help you and your son grow together as it highlights both the successes and struggles that fathers and sons experience. This will not be a comfortable journey, but it is so worth it!

Welcome to the Journey!



NOTE: The film is not an adaption of the book, they both have similar themes, but the book is nonfiction, while the film is narrative.  

Risks and challenges

Perhaps the greatest challenge of these projects is the sear scale of each project. It will be no easy feat to
Coordinate the film pre-production, production, & post-production. As well as, see the book to the end of its publishing journey. This is by far the most ambitious project I have ever taken on and will need your prayers as I see it to a finish.

I truly believe that God will use both the film and the book to connect fathers and sons, but I
I believe in order to make these projects truly successful, we need wives, mothers, and sisters encouraging their husbands, sons, and brothers to join in on this important movement!

Please pray for us as we take on this important project and that God will provide the resources to bring this project to life!
