A Blessed Christmas Season to You and Yours!

One of the scenes we filmed this year in the sitcom What's a Girl to Do is my new favorite scene. I can't tell you much about it until after that episode is released, but it makes it clear that Christmas is not a generic holiday about giving gifts, putting trees in our living rooms and wearing red and green. It's a celebration of the moment God sent his only begotten Son to earth. One of the gifts the wise men brought was myrrh, an embalming spice. Right from the start of time it was clear that Jesus would come to die, that we might live forever

Merry Christmas!

Rich, who was on the set of What's a Girl to Do in Florida, prayed that Joyce would run into Dutch Sheets, a prayer you can see was answered in the photo to the right. Dutch and Greg Hood were on the steps of the Supreme Court when Joyce connected with them.

Have a very blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year! 

I play a quirky clerk in Christmas Grace. It's a wonderful story of forgiveness and... well, grace.
