InFaithNetwork.com Guests: Dave Moody and Rusty Whitener

I love going to the movies. I love to get swept away in a good story, especially if the tale is not only entertaining but inspiring.

The theme of this week’s show is “Taking God to the Movies,” and Sheila English and I had the opportunity to interview two amazing people—Dave Moody, a film maker, and Rusty Whitener, a novelist and screenwriter.

Here is a little background on the multi-talented, Dave Moody:

Dave Moody

Few music entertainers from North Carolina have accomplished more than Dave Moody. As the driving force behind The Moody Brothers, Dave has led the family band to national recognition and international acclaim, earning two Grammy Award Nominations and three International CMA Awards. Dave is also directing motion pictures, and he’s already won numerous awards as a filmmaker. To learn more about Dave visit his site at http://davemoody.com/

Dave answered a variety of questions on the show, sharing about his transition from the music business to filmmaking, and he gave us the latest news on his upcoming project, A Season of Miracles.



We also talked to Rusty Whitener, who wrote the book, A Season of Miracles.

Rusty Whitener

Rusty is a novelist, screenwriter, actor, and pastor. His first screenplay, Touched, won second place at the Los Angeles Movieguide Awards and first place at the Gideon Film Festival. A lifelong baseball enthusiast, Rusty and his wife Rebecca live in Pulaski, Virginia, where he writes a weekly column for The Pulaski County Patriot. Find out more about Rusty at http://rustywhitener.com/

The connection Rusty has with Dave Moody is that Dave’s company, Elevating Entertainment is making his novel, A Season of Miracles, into a film. In the interview Rusty told us how thrilled he was about this opportunity and how wonderful it will be to see his work on the silver screen.

Here’s a marvelous endorsement for Rusty’s novel:

Matt Diaz (Atlanta Braves’ outfielder) said, A Season Of Miracles” is a touching, challenging and beautiful story about how God can use the unlikeliest among us to draw us to Him. I was reacquainted with my childhood. This is a ‘must read’ for anyone who ever played youth baseball.”

Thank you, Dave and Rusty, for a fun and fascinating look behind the scenes as Sheila and I explored the making of movies. And thank you for creating a beautiful and uplifting film that the whole family will be able to enjoy. I’m really looking forward to A Season of Miracles!

Blessings!
