    YESS! Cannoooot wait for this! I had no idea it was going to be so personal with the Jon’s daughter situation. Wow, this really is going to be different like everyone is saying its going to be. I can’t wait.

      I’m with you! I didn’t know Jon’s family emergency was part of this film. It brings a whole new depth to the story. Thanks Jeanna for this interview-I can hardly wait to see the film!

    Interesting they are using shots of Jon after he found out his daughter was ill…that’s so personal.
    I’ve often wondered about Jon’s daughter’s illness because my own daughter was hospitalized at 3 days old with a fever that turned out to be meningitis. She developed pituitary dwarfism due to damage caused to her pituitary gland by the meningitis.

    Talk of movie premiere at the concert. Is this still true?

  16. Jillian

    There are a lot of things that are still going through my mind with this film.I would like to say i pray for these guys so much,even though i may not understand all the meaning behind every song and music they have blessed me.
    I think letting people see your personal side is very like what Jesus would have us do,but at the same time know when not to.
    I remember how i felt when i heard about Jon’s little girl i really hoped he and his family new God’s love would get them through this.I gave a little gift to the guys but i really wanted to say why i gave one of them.But fear of sounding cheesey and to personal i left it.I hope it spoke for it’s self.
