  • Episode 4: David Helling

    Episode 4: David Helling

    David Helling served a five-year-stint in the United States Marine Corps– a commitment which eventually took him to the sands of Al-Anbar Province in Iraq where he found Jesus. Since then, David has made it his life’s mission to bring Scripture’s Truth from the page to the screen. His Only Son is a cinematic exploration of the story of Abraham, as his faith is tested on his three-day journey to sacrifice his son. The film is a quiet exploration of the scripture, ultimately challenging the viewer to examine their own commitment to hearing and obeying God’s voice. David and Dave discuss Abraham's journey in Genesis 22, the difference between flannel graph figures and real people, and the state of faith based films.

Dave and Rob discuss helping your children thrive despite the circumstances, staying physically/mentally/spiritually healthy, and how the church can step up to help single parents.
