Chop Wood Carry Water

I am a part of an AdvoCare mind and body improvement program and I was challenged to create a video for a Facebook group, based on a book we are reading.

The book is called Chop Wood Carry Water, by Joshua Medcalf.

Guided by “Akira-sensei,” John comes to realize the greatest adversity on his journey will be the challenge of defeating the man in the mirror. This powerful story of one boy’s journey to achieve his lifelong goal of becoming a samurai warrior brings the Train to be Clutch curriculum to life in a powerful and memorable way.

Each day we read one chapter and then produce our thoughts. I was assigned to chapter five. Here is what my kids and I came up with.

We wrote it, shot the video, edited it together, and uploaded it all in one afternoon.
