Samaritan Ministries, which has a heart for Christian families, has teamed with the father of one of those families—who also happens to make movies—to remind you that They Grow Up Fast and not to waste the time you have with them.
Director Darren Doane’s latest movie, They Grow Up Fast, will premiere on Samaritan Ministries’ website at samaritanministries.org/theygrowupfast and be available for a limited time starting September 7 for free online viewing.
SMI is the film’s chief sponsor.
The film is a video compendium of Doane’s four children—Alexandra (“Xan”), 10; Emmy, 9; Zoe, 6; and Knox, 5—being born and growing up over the past 10 years. He shot the footage originally as a way to informally chronicle the growth of his family. When friend and author N.D. Wilson saw an edited version, he wrote narration for it, and Doane realized he had something special. The result is a “home movie” that encourages parents to value the time they have with their children.
Ted Pittenger, Founder and International President of Samaritan Ministries, has experienced the truths that They Grow Up Fast communicates.
