Centered around one couple (Stan and Kelly Stevenson) who seem to be more committed to growing apart rather than growing together.

Director's Statement

The experience I'm most looking to convey with “A New Husband for Christmas” is that of Marriages and Relationships. The relationships we share while being married and how we relate with one another in our circle of friends. While this film has comedy and drama, it’s about friendships, change, and how deeply funny life can be in its most serious moments. While this story is specific to how we change from being one with the world and becoming transformed in Christ, I wanted viewers to connect with each character and feel a sense of hope, no matter what your walk may be currently in Christ. I still consider myself a novice in the film industry since this is my sophomore project, but I never take the approach of this as a “small” film, and definitely not even an “indie” film. I’ve been waiting to tell a story like this one, so I wanted it to be bighearted, for a broad audience, progressive and funny, and like most holiday films – deeply wanting to connect with people.

Prior to shooting this film, Kyria and I were already planning to make “Moving Forward” (which is another stage play written by Kyria) as our second project. This would’ve been our first drama centered genre film. However, after seeing the stage play “Marriage Works, If, You Work it”, and the dynamics in it, we agreed that adapting it into a film would be a great follow up from “The Wake Up Call”. Thus, "A New Husband for Christmas" was birth. I’m just excited to continue doing what God has gifted me to do as he ministers to me and through me.
