Other speakers include Alex Kendrick, whose latest movie “War Room” grossed more than $67 million last year and topped DVD sales when released in December; and Michael Farris, president of Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and chancellor of Patrick Henry College.

    We need more events like this in our community. I think it’s inspiring to children, especially in today’s society where these idiot lawmakers are trying to save money by saying that the “arts” aren’t important.
