TITLE: This Is My life
By Ken Ebright


Three, two, one. Roll music and animation. The director said.

The announcer said " This Is My Life, with Judd Gregg.

Light's come up and the director said, "cue talent.

"Hello, and welcome to this weeks show. We have with us tonight Ken Cob who is a Christian motivational speaker. Hello Ken how are you doing?"

Ken smiled and looked at Judd, "Just great, Judd."

Judd turned his head and looked at Ken, "What is a Christian motivational speaker?"

"I want to motivate people to live a holy, Christian life. We have people who call themselves Christians who don't act like Christians.

Judd looked down at his notes and looked up, "What made you want to do this?"

Ken sighed as he answered the question," I called myself a Christian, but I was not walking the walk. My eye's were opened to see other, people too and how they were living. I want to help other people."

Judd got a confused look on his face, "What were you doing wrong?"

A sad look came over Ken's face, "I had a bad temper, I used profanity just to name a few things."

Judd put his hand on his chin," What brought you to the breaking point?"

Ken paused for a second, "I had been trying for years to change my life, but what I had done was not very effective. I tried to do it on my own power. Then I blew up at work. The Lord used that situation to break me. I almost lost my job. I realized that I needed to ask God for help. He used my pastor and a Christian counselor to change my life."

Judd got a sad look on his face, "Sadly, most people ignore or excuse their sin. What made you want to deal with it?"

Ken shook his head, "I failed most of my life. I wanted to succeed at something. I decided to try to turn my life around. The blow up at work showed me that I needed to depend on Jesus to help me change, not on myself.

Judd smiled as he looked into the camera for a second and then turned his head to Ken. "How successful have you been at changing people?"

Ken smiled as he said, "I have had many people come up to me and tell me about how Jesus changed their life because of my message."

Judd turned his head and looked into the camera, "That is so awesome; I wish we had more time to go into more detail. Thank you Ken, for sharing your story. This is Judd Gregg, join us next time for This Is My Life.

"Fade Key light's and roll credits. Five, four, three, two, one, fade to black, said the director.

This is a mice take on the topic and shows how Jesus can change us.

The message in this story bears repeating--with God, anything is possible. Truly He has the power to change lives. Good job.

Excellent message. I especially enjoyed the MC's humility in sharing his own sin along with the inner torment it caused and how God dealt with it. Your story most definitely convicted me of my continuing struggle to overcome a hit and miss potty mouth and impatient temper at times. Also like your uniqueness with using the studio effects.

Very unique way of approaching the topic. The studio atmosphere was interesting.
