Transformation (and CALL to women's ministry) Video Clip done by Kristin Pauls

Back in January, I got a call from Kristin Pauls, asking if I would be willing to have her come and film a bit about my life - and why would she be doing this?  Well, originally it was to be one of three video clips that would be shown at the ONE HEART service at the MTS Center.  I was pretty humbled by the request, and wondered what God was up to with this.  However, due to time, the video was cancelled.

Then our church did a series on TRANSFORMATION.  Kristin mentioned to me that one of the pastor's would be using my video clip as part of his sermon.  However, not sure why, but in the end, Dave did not use it.

It is a funny thing - because at the time when she called, I was blown away - and humbled and thought it was truly a God thing - that He would use to let people know about the ministry.  However when it was not used once, and then twice - I had to really wonder?  But who am I to question God.  He makes no mistakes and HIS timing is just right.  SO ...  in the meantime, Kristin told me that I was free to use it however I wanted.  

I thought I would share it with you here, on the site about the ministry and also on my personal blog.  I hope it does not look like I am trying to toot my own horn!  Because that is not my intent!  While it is me that she filmed, I want to give all the glory to God.  I am merely the instrument HE is using!

Kristin, thanks for your visit that day - for your filming my story - for allowing me to share what God is up to in my life!  You are such an amazing young woman!  I stand in awe of what God is doing in YOUR life - and I am so blessed to call you my friend!  Here is Kristin's video!
