Explore the short films.
In a series of signature short films, see how the God Box project unfolds and enhances lives.
“Do you have a God Box?” follows the personal journey of those who write heartfelt petitions and faithfully tuck them away. Truly, anyone, anywhere, anytime can bring Mary Lou’s mother’s powerful note-writing ritual into his or her own life and learn to let go.
Acclaimed singer/songwriter Aron Wright out of Nashville generously contributed his then unreleased - now released - song "Life is a Holy" to this short film. Please click here to download this track at iTunes. The song is wonderfully lyrical.
In this short documentary film, we follow Mary Lou from her family farmhouse in Bucks County, Pennsylvania to her life in New York City as she embarks on the personal journey of a lifetime. We learn why she decided to go public with the story of The God Box and her mother’s most heartfelt notes. And how Mary Lou is sharing her mother’s legacy for all of us to treasure, pass on to others and, importantly, consider incorporating into our own lives.
The book trailer is an intimate portrait of Mary Lou and her mother, Mary. It tells the loving story of a mother and daughter, reveals Mary’s note-writing ritual called the God Box and shows us all why hope, love and faith can never be underestimated. And that the bonds of family never die.
