Watch The Measure of a Man


The Measure of a Man tells the heartwarming and inspiring story of Donald Bailey, who, as a teenager, leaves behind his home in California and sets out to make his mark on the world. Many years later, during her father’s final moments of his battle with cancer, Elizabeth Bailey recalls pivotal moments in her father’s life—from his childhood spent in an orphanage to his growth into a hardworking man, loving husband, and dedicated father of nine children. A series of tender snapshots of growing up in the Bailey household, The Measure of a Man captures the importance of leaving a legacy of love and faith—and shows that in the quest to create a good life for others, one can craft a legacy that lasts much longer than a lifetime.

Watch For Love’s Sake


Days before Christmas 1978, Peter Walker, a young English lay preacher, is killed in a motorcycle accident. His wife Mary, already emotionally fragile, falls into the depths of suicidal depression. As a result she loses custody of her two young boys, Paul and James. The boys are further traumatized as they are taken under the care of the county authorities and placed in a series of children’s homes and in a temporary foster placement with their grandparents. While James clings desperately to his Christian faith and the hope of being reunited with his mother, Paul rebels by fighting and committing petty crimes. Through the intervention of her church community, a dedicated social worker, and a caring Christian therapist (played by Bruce Marchiano), Mary uncovers a flicker of faith, still burning beneath the darkness. As she heals emotionally, hope returns, along with the strength to fight a skeptical bureaucracy for custody of her children. For Love’s Sake offers an honest and emotional glimpse inside a broken family. In their frailty courage comes only through a power beyond themselves. The story powerfully demonstrates that through the healing power of Jesus Christ, no family is beyond hope!
