Indescribable


I played Frederick Lehman in the film Indescribable, which tells how my character and his kids wrote the hymn "The Love of God". I'm the Papa to nine children, and my beloved bride, Joyce, played the Mama beautifully.

I also got to coach the man playing Rabbi Lazer on his Hebrew.

It was chosen as a semi-finalist for the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF), where it was screened in February 2013. There it also won runner up for best original score. It also won second place over all and best direction at the Gloryreelz Film Festival in May 2013.

It was 106 F outside this "packing
plant" in Bryan, TX. When they
closed the doors,  turned off the fans
and cranked up the lights it had to
be over 120!

I just got a call from a family who watched it. The ten year old got on the phone to tell me how much he enjoyed it. I asked him which part he liked best, and he said, "When his mom cried." LOL! The father said they're going to make it a part of their annual Christmas lineup.

We all watched Indescribable and are so blessed! Our four-year-old said he didn't know why, but it made his eyes drip water. We told him that was because you both did such a good job telling the story. Our 15-year-old went right to the hymnal afterwards and started playing "The Love of God" on the piano. Thank you so much! We seriously hope to see you again.
Blessings!
