Winter is truly upon us here in western NC! We are still getting used to that white stuff called snow...and then trying to figure out the difference between sleet, freezing rain and wintry mix? The Floridians are confused.
One thing we know for sure, the news and weather stations here are just as fear-mongering as the news and weather stations back home in south FL when it is hurricane season. We've sort of figured out now when to be worried and when to roll our eyes.
We can tell our bodies are adjusting to the cold as 60 degrees is no longer considered "freezing" to this Florida girl! But we also miss our sunshine so when the sun is out, even when it's cold, it's a great day! Right now it is softly snowing outside, cloudy and overcast, but it looks like we're in a snow globe or right in the middle of C.S. Lewis' "Narnia". Winter can be beautiful, too.
The winter season has found us very busy and we are grateful for the opportunity to work with some amazing businesses and churches. Below is a recap of each project we've been working on with links so you can watch.
Since we're all about stories, we get really pumped up when our clients see the value and power in someone's story. What a privilege to tell someone's story, see people captivated by it, get motivated or inspired and then ultimately to take action. This is something we don't take lightly.
Enjoy and Happy Winter, whether you see piles of snow or sand.
FRANKLIN HEALTH & FITNESS CENTER
We're excited about our partnership with the Franklin Health & Fitness Center. We'll be helping tell some of their most exciting and life-transformational stories, including Bill's, who got to go first. We hope you find it as inspirational as we did.
RABUN GAP-NACOOCHEE SCHOOL
Next we got to partner with Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School in North Georgia. They're a college prep boarding school near us and they asked us to help them capture a special day on campus, "Thank a Donor Day." Rabun Gap is unique among boarding schools in that nearly 70% of their students are on some degree of financial aid. That compares with 30% among most boarding schools. This project was fun because we got to get personal with some of their students and faculty asking them what financial aid means to them.
LIFE CHURCH FRANKLIN
Lastly for today, we've been extremely blessed to be a part of Life Church Franklin. As part of the LifeChurch.tv Network of churches, we participated in their global baptism day several weeks ago, and were blessed to baptize 14 people that Sunday. We got to capture the event and create a short recap, The expressions or joy are contagious, be warned.
