Today I thought it would be fun to show you pictures of the photo shoot. NUU Church Media shot film footage for the love story of how God pursues me—my story—and for the interview about my novel Refuge. Enjoy our shots! My iPhone photos of early in the day are followed by the professional photography.

The experience of filming my story was exhilarating, exhausting, and uplifting! It was amazing to work with such a terrific crew of professional creative filmmakers and photographers! They made the experience a lot of fun. It was a blessing to work with them to exalt the Lord and all he’s done in my life. This was the first day of the shoot. Hope you enjoy our day!
