Important Production Update - Summer 2019 Schedule

Schoolhouse Rocked Production Update

Don't miss this important production update. Yvette and Brooklyn Hampton discuss the plans for finishing the film. 


Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you for your amazing support, encouragement, and prayers over the past several weeks. God is doing BIG things and we are so excited to share them with you. We asked you to pray for the Lord to guide us, and He has! We are SO excited to tell you that in a few weeks, we are driving west from Georgia to Washington to complete the filming of Schoolhouse Rocked with Heidi St. John!

The remainder of what needs to be filmed to complete the movie is the narrative portion. We have interviewed several fantastic homeschool experts and families, but in order for Schoolhouse Rocked to be an entertaining and compelling film, there must be an engaging and relatable storyline to tie all the interviews together. That’s where Heidi comes in. We will join Heidi at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center in Vancouver, Washington to talk about the ups and downs, benefits and blessings, challenges and victories of homeschooling.

For those of you who are not familiar with Heidi, she is a homeschool mom of 7 and an outspoken advocate for truth. She is dedicated to changing culture through the faithful application of God’s Word. She is a popular speaker and author, and host of the Heidi St. John podcast. You will be BLESSED by her important part in Schoolhouse Rocked!

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!  As you can imagine, this cross-country journey and filming in Washington is going to be quite costly. God has been faithful to provide for production up until now, through people like yourself, as well as a few awesome sponsors, and we know He will continue to do so.

In order to complete filming with Heidi, we need to raise approximately $30k, in the next few weeks, for crew, travel, equipment, and other costs. It’s a big number, we know. But, we also know that our God is really big and that where He guides, He ALWAYS provides! Our trip is planned, our family is packed up, and we are going! Will you help us get there?

Here’s how YOU can help – 

PRAY~ God hears our prayers and is faithful and able to answer. We have continuously seen Him at work throughout this important project. 

DONATE~ Make a tax-deductible donation of any amount.

SHARE~ Share this message with friends and family who believe in the importance of homeschooling.

We are thankful for you, the homeschool community, who continue to walk this journey with us through prayer, encouragement, and financial support.

We are in this together and can’t wait to update you on God’s amazing provision!

Yvette Hampton, Producer

Soli Deo gloria!
