What a GREAT review! Thank you so much for writing this story. I loved
Jasen's character, Levi Savage. We knew Levi's story well retelling it
often as Docents at the Church Museum of History and Art during the wonderful
art exhibit of Sweetwater Rescue. It was so wonderful to hear the personal story
of how Jasen secured that role in the film. Jasen was the perfect Levi Savage.
Good luck to you in your career, Jasen. And thank you for remembering who you
are! It is a good lesson for all of us to hold on through tough times and remain
true to the values and principles we know are right.
Thank you for this story. I worked for many years (28) for Dr. Skousen and
worked with Keith and T.C..... they are some of my heroes. I ended up raising
13 children who I didn't birth and going through that experience has taught
me a great deal... and those lessons learned in this story are lessons I hope my
children will learn through their years of trying to recover from a tough start
in life. Thanks....
I like Jason Wade as an actor. I hope that he keeps it up. Everyone should see
For those LDS who read this story and think they might be faced with
homelessness and can't get help from family members, please contact your
bishop. I of course don't know the details of Jasen Wade's situation,
but it is extremely unlikely that you will have to go without food and a place
to live if you ask. But there are a number in the church that aren't
sufficiently aware of that because it isn't something we ever really talk
about from the pulpit.
I remember vividly one of T.C.s first films, 'The Rose' about a little
girl forced to color within the lines and how she lost her creativity. My boss
Steve Anderson commented, "That young man will become a talented director,
if he stays true to his instincts." T.C.s story is just as Jasen's.
Hope you will share it with us some time. We need to be inspired by such
stories as the the press is usually full of the success stories of those who
sold their birthrite.
Hey Elder Wade...I served at that same time in Moscow, didn't really get to
know you then but it is awesome to read about a fellow staryeshna e brat and the
success you have had in your life! Great to hear about some of the hard times
and that you overcame and came out on top. malo detz!
Thank you for staying true.
