David Helling: His Only Son

David Helling: His Only Son

Misty Phillip sits down with the Director of His Only Son, David Helling to discuss the heart behind the movie His Only Son.

It is one of the most controversial moments in all Scripture– when the Lord God tested Abraham by commanding him to take his son, his only son, and sacrifice him on the mountain of Moriah. This feature film illustrates that striking account, following Abraham, his son and their two servants as they journey for three days to the place of the offering. Along the way, the men encounter dangers and trials as Abraham silently relives memories spanning the decades he and his wife, Sarah, longed for the son God had promised… the son he must now lay upon the altar.  Answering age-old questions as to why the Lord would require such a sacrifice, His Only Son profoundly explores mankind’s relationship to God and encourages viewers to turn inward and ask: Can your faith still stand when you are asked to give everything?

David Helling

David Helling grew up in Southern Louisiana but spent the bulk of his teens in Texas. Upon graduating high school, David shipped to California for a five-year-stint in the United States Marine Corps– a commitment which eventually took him to the sands of Al-Anbar Province in Iraq. There in the desert, near the edge of ancient Babylon, in a combat zone, another battle was raging in David himself– a war within that eventually drove to the Bible. The result was a transformed heart, sincere faith and a burning desire to tell others of those Biblical accounts. Since then, David has made it his life’s mission to bring Scripture’s Truth from the page to the screen. This endeavor has resulted in many short films and scripts, garnering numerous awards, accolades and international attention– all which now culminate in his debut feature film, His Only Son.

From the Director

“The account at the core of His Only Son is one of the most controversial narratives in all Scripture. You would be hard-pressed to find another passage so scrutinized, scoffed at or misunderstood as the twenty-second chapter of the book of Genesis. With this film, I endeavor to answer the critics as well as the confused by exploring the meaning and purpose of God’s testing of Abraham, when He asked him to do the unthinkable 4,000 years ago. I look to shine a light on the plan the Lord had in place from the beginning, His promise of redemption and the part Abraham’s walk of faith so boldly played.”

“For us now, the days seem darker than many of us can remember, and at a time when humanity is so downcast, we are in dire need of inspiration to lift us up again. May this film serve as a reminder that in the hard times, in the hurt, in the sadness and in the loss, there is a plan, and there is a purpose for it all. Personally, the last five years of working on this film have been the most trying and heart-wrenching of my life, but I pray, like me, you find encouragement in the testimony of Abraham. His faith was tested. Our hope was born.”

His FAITH was tested. Our HOPE was born.

  • The movie has completed final production and is now raising investment funds for its theatrical release to promote marketing and advertising.
  • HIS ONLY SON is a Biblically inspired film based on the life of Abraham as told in Genesis chapters 12 through 22.
  • HIS ONLY SON is directed by David Helling, a U.S. Marine Corp veteran who’s time in the deserts of Iraq formed the impetus for the film.
  • The movie commitment to accuracy is seen even in the authentic cast–with Abraham played by Nicolas Mouawad, a beloved Lebanese film and TV actor, and Sarah played by Sara Sayed, who was born and raised in Tehran.

Robert Beeson: Help for Single Parents

Robert Beeson: Help for Single Parents

Misty Phillip sits down with Robert Benson for a helpful conversation for solo parents on this week’s episode of the By His Grace podcast. Robert shares his personal story of becoming a solo parent looking for guidance. When his wife of 13 years separated from him, he was left to raise his three young daughters on his own. This experience led him to found Solo Parent Society to unify, equip and empower single parents. 


Robert Beeson is a former high-level executive in the music industry who helped develop and guide the success of many major Christian artists, including Micheal W. Smith, Casting Crowns, Jars of Clay, and Third Day. 

Robert co-hosts a Solo Parent Society weekly podcast and has authored a book titled Going Solo: Hope and Healing for the Single Mom or Dad. Robert is also the founder and director of iShine, a Christian media group dedicated to ministering to pre-teens and their families. He is remarried and resides in Tennessee with his daughters and three new stepsons.


Going Solo: Hope and Healing for the Single Mom or Dad

As parents face the complicated reality of a broken home, a sense of being completely overwhelmed can shut down the perspective they need to find restoration. Parents need to know that they can choose to define this season of their lives instead of becoming defined by circumstances. They can deliberately look toward God and come to a deeper understanding of His true nature, power, and personal care.

Robert offers readers some hard-learned lessons and insights on being a practical, empathetic, and empowered single parent, answering crucial questions such as:

  • How do I find peace when everything around me is chaos?
  • How do I manage meeting needs when I have nothing to give?
  • How and where do I begin again?

He addresses the fears and exhaustion of single parenting while revealing the keys to gaining strength and courage for each day. He also shares how he found his “solo” relationship with his heavenly Father through his “solo” parenting season. Readers will learn five helpful habits and practical healing principles they can immediately apply in this season of life.

Bob Wheatley: Our Hearts Desire

Bob Wheatley: Our Hearts Desire

Misty Phillip sits down with former professional athlete, author, and podcast host Bob Wheatley to discuss our heart’s greatest desires on the By His Grace podcast. We discuss the single life, and his new book Our Heart’s Desire: How Our Stories Reveal the Thing We Want Most.


Bob Wheatley is an author, podcaster, and former professional athlete. He serves as a co-host of That Singles’ Show, a singles ministry sponsored by KCBI Christian Radio in Dallas, and his work has been featured on other nationally syndicated radio outlets like WAY-FM and THE FISH.

During working hours, Bob serves as the Sales Director at Brand Builders Group, a brand strategy firm in Nashville, Tennessee. Brand Builders Group helps influencers, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs clarify their positioning, expand their reach, and exploit their uniqueness in the service of others. Before joining Brand Builders Group, Bob gained valuable experience in various industries, including military relocation services, financial planning, professional athletics, and more.

After graduating from the University of Southern California, Bob spent four years playing professional baseball for the Toronto Blue Jays and St. Louis Cardinals. During his free time, he enjoys reading and writing, watching sports, and spending time in nature. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee.


Our Heart’s Desire: How Our Stories Reveal the Thing We Want Most

We cannot escape our deepest desire. The human heart longs for many things—love, joy, peace, abundance—but it longs for one thing even more: to experience a love story with God. In his debut work, Bob Wheatley reveals that all our favorite stories provide whispers of this truth.

Why do we tell the same stories again and again? What is it about the hero, the villain, and the love interest in distress that continues to draw us in? Are these just storytelling tactics, or do they teach us something more? Our stories reveal our heart’s cries—we want to live out this story ourselves. With references to The Dark Knight, The Hunger Games, Friends, and dozens of other stories from popular culture, Wheatley walks readers through the three acts of storytelling, revealing how every story we tell reflects God’s ultimate love story.


Being single can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be a bummer. In That Singles’ Show, you’ll meet a couple of friends who are right in your shoes, and you’ll find a place to rest, fit in, and find joy in your season of singleness. Yes, we plan to grow and learn some stuff, and we promise to laugh at the ridiculousness of life, but more than anything, we’re here to remind you that you are NOT alone.

So… you’re single huh? Well then, welcome home, friend! This is That Singles’ Show!
