It’s that simple.
Speaking of sharing, here’s my Mama-Kii™ tea experience:
I am an avid tea lover, so when I received my Mama-Kii™ tea in the mail last year I couldn’t wait to try it! I tore into the box and discovered a beautiful metal tin containing a drawstring cloth bag. Nestled inside encased in cellophane were 14 lovely pyramid sachets filled with glorious, rich, loose green mamaki leaves that are 100% natural and caffeine-, gluten- and cholesterol free.
I immediately boiled some water and placed a bag in my favorite green ceramic teapot. I then poured the hot water over the bag and allowed it to steep for an hour. (I like strong tea!) While I waited, I retrieved my best “Hercules” mug (what else?).
Sixty agonizing minutes later I sipped one of the best teas I’ve ever tasted! It was simultaneously soothing and energizing. Its smooth, gently sweet aroma performed a tantalizing symphony in my mouth: subtle yet commanding, simple yet eloquent, comforting yet rejuvenating. Divine!
I still have a lot left, preferring to save it for special occasions. But, with Mama-Kii’s great discounts combined with donating to WFIT, I can buy much more and make every day special!
What about you?
Please help make every day special in the lives of WFIT’s kids by purchasing Mama-Kii™ tea and supporting the OEKSFC Birthday Project 2014 today!

Pure Flix Entertainment’s faith-based film, “God’s Not Dead,” starring Kevin Sorbo (“Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” “Andromeda,” “What If…”) opens this Friday, March 21, in the U.S. Its stellar cast also features Shane Harper (“High School Musical 2,” “Flipped”), David A.R. White (“Six: The Mark Unleashed”), Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”), and special appearances by Christian super-band Newsboys and Willie and Korie Robertson (“Duck Dynasty”).
The upcoming cinematic release, written by Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman and directed by Harold Cronk, strikes at the hearts of religious believers and non-believers when a dogmatic, argumentative, atheist college instructor, Professor Radisson (Sorbo), states on his class’s first day that he requires his philosophy students to disavow the existence of God or face a failing grade.
“This semester,” says Radisson, “I propose that we refuse to waste our limited time together debating the existence of the ‘Big Man in the Sky.’ Fill in the papers I’ve just given you with three little words: God is dead.”
Freshman Josh Wheaton (Harper), a devout Christian, maintains that he cannot conform to Radisson’s request by openly declaring, “I can’t do what you want… I’m a Christian.”
Radisson then challenges Wheaton to a classroom debate: If Wheaton wins he will pass the course; if he fails, his below average grade will forever tarnish his scholastic record.
This sets the stage for the exciting movie that brings to the forefront Christianity versus Atheism in today’s world fraught with spiritual questions.
Sorbo kindly provided a few insights regarding “God’s Not Dead” in a recent interview with this writer.
“I don’t want to preach to the choir about this movie,” said Sorbo. “I hope the choir goes to see the movie, of course, but, I really want to reach those fence-sitters out there. This is a movie for all faiths and all of those who don’t believe. It is a good story that will touch those who are looking for something but don’t know what that something is.”
Sorbo, who is not unfamiliar with the faith-based movie genre, having won the Movieguide® Grace Award for “Most Inspiring Performance in Movies in 2010” for his astounding portrayal of Ben Walker in “What If…” and was nominated for two Movieguide® awards for the movie, “Soul Surfer,” explained what attracted him to this controversial role.
“As it is with all scripts I read,” Sorbo stated, “it has to hold my interest. I give scripts 20 pages. If I am not hooked by then, I pass on the project.
“I loved the (‘God’s Not Dead’) story, the message (and) the character. (It was) fun to play a man that is so far from what I am that I couldn’t resist.”
Sorbo, a devout Christian who was reared Lutheran, clearly overcame his antithetical character. How?
“(It) wasn’t that difficult,” maintained Sorbo. “I have atheist friends, and I just tapped into the conversations I have had with them. And it is a very well-written script, so, that made it pretty easy as well.”
Sorbo is well-known in Hollywood’s Christian faith circle, having appeared on the television ministry program, “Hour of Power,” that broadcasts from the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, CA, and the 700 Club. What does he hope to accomplish with “God’s Not Dead”?
“Because it will make (people) think,” the former Hercules strongman replied. “It will create conversations on all sides of this issue and, hopefully, make those who are non-believers at least consider the possibility that there is something out there that is bigger than they are.”

Kevin Sorbo’s latest cinematic release, “God’s Not Dead,” opens in U.S. theaters next Friday, March 21.
Produced by Pure Flix Entertainment, this engaging film poses the question: How far would you go to defend your belief in God?
Here is the synopsis via the “God’s Not Dead” Official Website:
“Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo).
Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words “God Is Dead” on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh finds himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor.
Radisson assigns him a daunting task: If Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God’s existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals.
With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? Wouldn’t it just be easier just to write “God Is Dead” and put the whole incident behind him?
GOD’S NOT DEAD weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief, culminating in a dramatic call to action. The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions.”
I have ticket money burning in my pocket to see this!! Hope you do, too! Stay tuned for my review of this controversial, exciting faith-based film. I can’t wait!!!
Please enjoy the official trailer:
A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, my friends!
I know I have been remiss in posting lately, but, with the holidays and all I have been busy. One of my 2014 New Year’s resolutions is to keep up with Kevin as best as possible. But, as his fans, you know how difficult THAT can be since he is always busy! I hereby resolve to post more frequently… or try to anyway!
So, since I have missed posting our lovely calendars by Sanne, Loli, Mara and Malena (that I hope to include later this month), and other features, links and stories, I offer these autographs by Karl Urban, Ted Raimi and Robert Trebor as my holiday gift to you. Please note that they have not been seen before, and I sincerely hope I am not breaching Press protocol by posting them. Don’t remember when they were done with exception of Mr. Trebor’s that has the date. I interviewed Messrs. Raimi and Trebor, and they were both great! but not Mr. Urban. Enjoy!
P.S. Is the drawing on Kevin by Karl Urban too funny or what?!
