Missing Pyramids Found???

My publishers passed on this awesome article to me! It’s the story of an archaeologist (from North Carolina, too!), who found what appears to be long-lost pyramids in Egypt!! And she used Google Earth to find them! This article is really cool and exciting! I would encourage you to read it with your kids and show them how to use Google Earth to find things and see the pyramids themselves! It also talks a lot about the Egyptian culture and shows some great maps, too. Have fun researching and learning more about Egypt!

Meet “Ada”!!

Hello Everyone!

Meet my amazing friend, Megan Black, who is playing the role of “Ada” in the radio drama! Megan and I met each other in ballet class when we were both 14, and then when I stopped dancing I didn’t see her for a few years. Then she suddenly appeared at my local Christian Youth Theatre! She is so sweet, beautiful, and serving, and has a fantastic singing voice! Her acting talent is also incredible, and hopefully you will hear that soon!

Megan is 19 years old, and was home-schooled all the way through high school. She is now studying Early Childhood Education at Wake Tech in North Carolina. She really enjoys singing, acting, photography, and little children! Megan has been in Christian Youth Theatre for 3 years, and she is very genuine in her acting. When asked what she liked about her part and this recording experience, this is what she said:

“I like that I have the opportunity to give a passionate speech on why I believe in Yahweh even though I cannot see him. It was a great experience for me to record this segment because it reminded me of just how much my God loves me and how exciting that love is. I can also understand Ada’s passion for those around her and her desire for them to know the love of her God. Her dedication to loving the lost and telling them of the grace available to them is inspiring to me. She encourages me to keep sharing with the lost in my life.

“I love the way that this story (“A Cry From Egypt”) is exciting and captivating, yet overflowing with the message of the love of God. The detail and emotion jumps out and grabs at the heart of the reader and prepares them for the message of God’s faithful love and deliverance of his people.

“During recording, every recording session was full of laughter and wonderful memories. Perhaps one of my favorites was my impromptu song with Julia (the Queen) about our “Egyptian man problems”.”

I can’t wait for you to hear Megan give her passionate speeches to the Queen and to Paki about her confidence in Yahweh. It makes my spine tingle to think of it! She did such an amazing job! Thank you so much, Megan!!

Stayed tuned for another bio next week! You’ll get to meet “Paki”! :-)
