A Scavenger Hunt for Palm Sunday

I get to spend today and the next three days with all my family — my husband, our children, and our grandchildren — at the beach! This means we will have 9 children just barely-five-years-old and under all in one place for 76 hours! So — I am making preparations! I’m going armed with Play-doh, tempera paints, cookie dough, and empty plastic Easter eggs to stuff with finger food for an […]

Second Place Bible Drama Video

Our second place award goes to “Paul and Silas are thrown in prison,” submitted by Jessica B. We love how the whole family works together to create this video.

Third Place Bible Drama Video

Our third place award goes to “A Certain Man,” submitted by Maryann K. There’s so much to like about this video. We love how the drama flows right along with the music and illustrates the words of Scripture so well. Filming outdoors gives extra realism (and so does having a real horse in your cast!). The acting is well done, and we’ve enjoyed watching this one over and over again. […]

Announcing: The Doorposts Bible Drama Contest!

When I was growing up, many Sunday afternoons were spent re-enacting the crossing of the Red Sea, Gideon’s attack on the Midianites, the Philistines being struck down by Samson (usually my little brother Benjamin) with his stuffed-sock “jawbone,” and more. Now my own children are just starting to discover the fun of acting out Bible stories! Today we want to launch an exciting event that will inspire you and your […]
