Something EVERYONE should know about!

Have you ever watched a movie that had a good story, fun actors, cool special effects but you left thinking..."if only it didn't have the language, this would be a great movie." Or, "if this movie didn't have that one scene I could feel comfortable about letting my kids watch this." I mean, what do those words or scenes really add to the movie anyway??? NOTHING!! We used to be members of the Family Flix franchise before they got sued and put out of business. We were so bummed when that wasn't an option anymore. WELL, we now have another's called the Clear Play DVD and filter. For more info go to and read up on this cool new gizmo. It is basically a DVD player that you download movie filters onto. You can choose the setting...G, PG etc. We just finished watching The Dark Knight....less all the cussing, I think it may have skipped a violent scene or two (not sure). We didn't miss a thing. When new movies come out on DVD new filters are added to the web site. You can either pay a monthly fee to download...or you can go online 1 or 2x a year and pay to download the newest filters. There are thousands of movies to choose from that have already had filters made. Not a bad deal for a mere $80...

They're HOOOOooooome!!!

Here we are, quite a spectacle. Our group standing with signs in the middle of the night, in a fairly dead Phoenix airport...We got a few stares from people. I'm sure they were wondering what could be SO important that you would keep children up at all hours of night on a school night! Well....none of us wanted to miss it. After 18 months in the Philippines Mima and Papa were COMING HOME!!! Here they are seeing our group with all of our signs. Boy were we happy to be together again. We are so proud of them and the service they have been able to give. We've had a wonderful time hearing stories, looking at pictures, and feeling their missionary spirit. Welcome home guys..
