This past month we had a wonderful experience beginning to film a new documentary feature with founders of a new ministry from one of our authors. A husband and wife team, Tom and Rene' Stewart have come together to form a portal to help others who are dealing with trauma and strife in their life.
How did this happen from the Filmmakers Roundtable?
Faith. The founders of SECRET KNOTS decided to step out on faith as their family came together as a team in order to begin this journey. The life story of Tom Stewart is one that is filled with suspense, agony, sexual abuse, trauma and more. In fact, this is a story you normally might consider to just "write off", but not with this family.
Rene' Stewart took the enormous leap to begin writing the story and capture what truly happened. Her faith and belief in her husband brought them together to have our TABLE review thier book. From this, it was clear after a CINEMATIC BOOK REVIEW they were heading to filming.
From the Seattle, Washington arena, they all came to the Southwest to begin the filming and we are so thankful they did. The first step in their journey is finding Biblical Counselors who would bring solutions to the forefront for those who are hurting and the #metoo erupted with response.
In the first week online for secret knots.net there were over 800 new users who were reading about FREEDOM FROM SHAME as the organization has first begun to recognize the importance of HOPE in their lives.
GR PRODUCTIONS and VERITAS MISSION FILMS came together to meet with HIS TRUTH TRANSFORMS and these legendary counselors are bringing resources to help those in need. Helping others is a powerful opportunity and it all began with a book and is now being made into a feature documentary!
Special thanks to our staff who work so very hard to ensure people have an opportunity to change the world with their projects. I am particularly thankful for the courage of the Stewart family to share their landmark case with the world. On behalf of the entire TABLE we congratulate the Stewarts for this brave step.
Enjoying the Journey,
