I am a thirty-something spouse of an independent filmmaker, based in Philadelphia. I am a full-time social worker, and my husband and I co-own a small business renting film gear. We are both committed Christians and are members of our reformed church home. This journal is a place where I share the challengings of being a filmmaking family. We are dependent upon the arts for income, while aiming to navigate a non-conventional schedule and maintain a healthy marriage. Most importantly, we try to be good stewards of the gifts and resources our Lord has entrusted to us. I hope the transparency of our daily struggle of being pilgrims in this strange land will encourage other families who find themselves in unique life circumstances.
