The Evolution of a Story! No Monkey Business!

It’s MONDAY!  After a freezing week across the nation it is finally time to lighten up and warm up!  

There are two clips in today’s post.  The first clip was filmed in about 1990 in front of 11,000 people and the second was filmed about 21 years later and became part of a motion picture titled Fully Alive. 

They are both on the same subject but end up going in different directions.  I thought you might like to see how the emphasis of a story grows and changes over the years.

This clip was taken from Healing the Wounded Heart. For more info or to purchase, click here.

This second clip starts out the same but hang in there.  See if you can see the subtle changes and the different direction the clip took at the end.

So which one do you like the best? 

Do you have stories in your family that have grown and changed over the years?

These are two of my favorite DVDs  and both are available on my website.If you purchase them, please don’t forget to share them with friends.

Jeff Allen – A Parent of Teenagers Survivor!

It’s Lighten Up Monday!  I think it was Bill Cosby that said, “It is best to keep young children in a barrel and feed them through a hole.  When they reach the teenage years, weld shut the hole.”  Anyone who has raised a teenager will enjoy Jeff Allen’s take on the subject.

Question: Is it possible for a parent with teenagers to lighten up?  How did you survive those years? You can leave a comment by clicking here.

Two Lessons I Learned from My Airplane Crash!

Can it possibly be Lighten Up Monday again? Today’s clip is about the day I crashed a perfectly good airplane on a perfectly calm day. The story will remind you of two truths which could be good life lessons OR you might just enjoy a good laugh. Either way have a nice week.

1. A perfectly good flight can be ruined by a bad landing.
2. Sometimes its better to simply answer the question that is asked.

You be the judge!
