American Family Studio is proud to announce the filming of Summer Snow, a dramatic comedy starring David Chisum, Cameron Goodman, Rachel Eggleston, Brett Rice, produced by Dan Atchison and Eric Baird directed by Jeremy and Kendra White.
Summer Snow tells the heart wrenching and hope filled story of Susan Benson’s death, and how it forever changed her husband Dan, and three children’s lives. Forced to find a new “normal,” the Bensons must now re-learn how to be a family without the glue that held them together. The Bensons were always a family of faith, but now that faith has been shaken and they are unsure where God fits into this new reality. But just as God often answers prayer in unique and unexpected ways, Susan provides comfort and words of wisdom when each person needs it most, setting her family on a path of healing and hope.
Summer Snow stars David Chisum, Cameron Goodman, Garrett Backstrom, with Brett Rice (Forrest Gump, Remember the Titans, Super 8, Country Strong, and House) and introducing, Rachel Eggleston. Critics say “This is a breakthrough performance from the entire cast!” “What a refreshing change of pace! Summer Snow is truly a family film.” “Rachel Eggleston’s heartwarming portrayal of Hallie…shines and leaves you smiling.”
Estimated Release Date: October 1, 2012 limited release. Distributed through American Family Studios, and in conjunction with Voice of the Martyrs.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
