August Theme: Making Moments Count

With Summer rapidly coming to a close, there are still opportunities to make memories as a family.

Whether you act on these ideas or get inspired to do something different, this resource will bless your family.

A short story about Mitch and outer-space and an inspirational video about observing the total solar eclipse.

Originally this section was created for those who wanted to observe it. Today, it’s a look back and reflection on the bigger thoughts that experience evoked.

An introductory tutorial on discovering the power of everyday moments and how to capture them.

In this sample tutorial you'll learn some practical ideas to take better in-the-moment photos of life.
