A Family Man

I love this video. It is a remarkable blend of musical, lyrical and visual arts working together as the artists reflect on the bittersweet (but mostly sweet!) transition from single to family life from a Christian perspective.

Andrew Peterson, “Family Man” (Video length: 4:05)

    That was beautiful.

  2. Margaret says:

    We watched it together, and it made me cry! Beautifully put together, – we both loved it. Thank you for making me cry!!

  3. Ray Fowler says:

    I am glad you both enjoyed it. I have watched it a number of times now, and I just don’t get tired of it.

  4. Bethany says:

    This is lovely. I am actually looking for a song about family, but this wasn’t quite what I need. We are having someone scan a number of our photographs, starting with our wedding, then through the years of the kids growing up. She will put them on a DVD and we can choose a song to go with the pix. Since we didn’t have a camcorder during the kids’ growing-up years, this will be our equivalent of a home movie. Any ideas on good songs for this anyone?

    Bethany – What a neat project! My first thought was Amy Grant’s “If These Walls Could Speak,” although it may be too melancholy for what you’re doing. Here’s a link anyways, and I will keep thinking: Amy Grant: If These Walls Could Speak

    P.S. Shawn Colvin also does a cover of this if you like the song but wanted a little more upbeat version. Here’s a link to listen: Shawn Colvin: If These Walls Could Speak
