I Am Second - edited

****edited to reflect collaborative effort of this project****

I found this website, I Am Second, through Robin at Pensieve and wanted to share it with you.

It. Is.Very.Cool.

I can't even begin to explain it because it just speaks for itself. I can tell you that it is videos of all kinds of people, famous and not telling their amazing stories of letting God taking over in their lives.

The photo above shows Brian Welch, former band member of Korn. His story? Wow.

Looking for someone or something more familiar? Well, I am sure you will find it - the site covers anything you, or someone you know, may be dealing with - from abuse to difficulties in your marriage, or from addiction to just what your purpose is in life.

Here is Josh Hamilton's video.

While the creators have remained on the down-low it seems that this site has been the collaborative effort of "no less than a dozen really, really talented, Jesus loving,
passionate people, says Trey Hill.

I just want to point you to a couple sites of those involved in making this happen. Led by two -time Emmy nominated directors, Sam Ditore and Scott Mayo of Ditore Mayo Entertainment

From their site...

Meaningful stories need to be told. And told well. That’s what we do.

Trey Hill: Photographer, Writer, Editor
Straight from his bio...

I often linger on details most people miss. It’s a habit that comes from my belief that beauty lives deep inside un-special things. You may have to look a little longer and a little harder to see it, but in the short space between my shutter’s opening and closing something profound happens.

A redemptive blink is made available for savoring.

As a photographer, I’m trying to prodigally pursue the beauty hidden inside of ordinary things.

I will just echo Robin in saying, if you are strong in your faith - visit the site. If you are not sure how you feel about about God - visit the site. Just visit the site - I don't think you will be disappointed.

I Am Second,
