If you have been wondering where I have been, let me first say that being the mother of five is no joke, and the older they get the more their needs change and become more dynamic. It's hard to meet the needs of a 3 year-old and a twelve year-old and every age in between. That said, in October Sammy and I were a part of The Big Tell a film contest that asks film-makers to share stories around the Central Valley. I received a grant from the Central Valley Community Foundation and we were able to complete this video and it was such a labor of love. We both spend some quality time at the vineyard and even brought our kids along to give service. I got to work my first project with Sammy that I got to participate in every step of the way, even some of my footage made the final cut. Our mini-documentary is gaining some traction on facebook and has received over 22k views! The CVCF has even shared that they have members of the community calling in asking who they should get in contact with to come pick grapes with us next year. This is dear to my heart because the hope was to inspire others to serve in the vineyard and in the community in general.
