Help Make One Dream a Reality—Support Independent Film Artist Amy Ball

In the spirit of yesterday’s post offering 4 tips for following your God-given dream (a.k.a. personal calling), I’m giving a shout-out of support to fellow saint and sinner Amy who quit her cushy corporate job at Starbucks to pursue her dream of writing, producing and acting in her very first film. Amy and I swam together in high school; and she was always the cute, bubbly, hot girl in the Honor’s classes (and I the awkward, nerdy and slightly envious one)…

…But I had no idea that Amy once believed fried chicken could cause pregnancy! Now Amy is producing her first film, “Belly Flop,” about an eight-year-old girl who reads a tabloid magazine headline and goes into panic mode for fear she might be pregnant after eating fried chicken. The teaser is funny: after you watch it consider making a donation via Kickstarter’s easy process. (I for one will be watching the flick when it comes out.)

If you can’t give your whole heart to something, then maybe it’s really not worth doing in the first place, to paraphrase Amy. I think she’s right. Way to go, Amy! Here’s to your God-given dream coming true—and to all the God-given dreams of fellow saints and sinners out there!
