A Day Without Immigrants

“I think something happens when you’re called ‘illegal’ for most of your life. There’s no escaping it.” On February 16, 2017, immigrants nationwide skipped work to demonstrate their value to local businesses, culture, and communities. In this video essay, we enter the experience of our undocumented neighbor Aline Mello and stand with protesters who call […]

See Her Shine

When Susan asked us to film the main moments of her cousin Crisleni’s quince, we didn’t think of it a storyboard piece. We just wanted to do a favor for a family in our church and capture this meaningful moment in a young woman’s life. Because the mission of storyboard is so deeply rooted in […]

Storyboard Live: Josh Feit | Another Dimension

Elliot’s wife and three children keep vigil at Atlanta Hospice, taking turns holding his hand, praying prayers of peace, singing hymns, and sleeping on camping mats. Heavily medicated and slipping into a coma, a familiar song seeping from the tinny speakers of Elliot’s phone has him reveling in a vision of glory, while everyone else sees nothing but […]

How do we love someone who threatens our most treasured ideals or comforts? When Josh signed up for international adoption, he didn’t know where it would take him.

We Grew Up

Does faith travel from one generation to the next? Do our relationships influence our thoughts about God? Do we have any idea how our beliefs will grow and change in the coming years? Three young people from our neighborhood tell us how they came by their beliefs about God, what they think of Jesus, and the future […]

The Light of Hidden Flowers

A story by Rebekah Morris // I am driving south with my friend Ruthie, along with six teenage girls and three babies, to Fort Myers Beach in southern Florida. The GPS displays an arrival of 6 o’clock – ten hours from now. I cringe thinking of the endless diaper-changing, bottle-feeding, and pit stops for gas and […]

My Favorite Thing

When we opened a bike shop and invited the neighborhood kids in, we didn’t know how it would play out. We didn’t know where the relationships and work were going. Almost every week, as we turned wrenches, adjusted derailleurs, and replaced rusted chains, we asked ourselves, what does this mean? Years later, we heard this story […]

Room for Good News

A Story by Ian North// When Evangelina was fifteen, Ruthie and I took her on weekly visits to the DeKalb County Jail to see her brother, Nick. He sat down on the other side of the glass and looked at the three of us. His hair hung a little longer each week. He looked weary […]
