Telling Stories That Strengthen Families.

As a church, Living Word Family Church had always dreamed of making feature films that fed the human spirit and that would challenge and strengthen families. After making many short films, in 2012 we took a step of faith and produced our first full-length feature film, “Another Chance”, which premiered later that year resulting in great reviews as well as many decisions to follow Christ at the premiere. We’ve since produced 3 additional feature films: Fat Chance, Christmas Wander, and The Big Fix, and 1 sit-com pilot, Sweeties, and thus, Living Word Studios was born.

We’re so excited about all that God has in store for us as we continue to tell stories that strengthen families and inspire Christians to grow in their faith.

Storytelling is a vehicle to help disciple people in a fresh and uncompromising way. Our goal is to include as many people as possible in the process to produce a quality film. Everyone has a part—training those in set etiquette, technical skills, post production and development, we strive to incorporate professionals and volunteers to create a quality crew for each project we undertake.

Sarah is a jane-of-all-trades in the Christian film community. She’s a writer, director, editor, and actress with a heart for using the talents that God has given her to build her brick for God’s kingdom and for His glory. While she wears many hats, acting will always be her first love and favorite hat. She first started working with Living Word Studios in 2015 after being cast as the lead in their based-on-a-true story romantic comedy, Fat Chance.
