Can You Believe a Teenager Did This?
Ray ‘ Bubba Sorensen
There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy. 25 in rural Iowa. For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed.
It ‘ s quite an impressive sight. Check out the multiple photos (all angles) of the rock.
The flag is not draped over the rock….it’s painted. What an awesome job.
Making a difference is easy. You simply have to step out on faith and follow the path set before you. Use your talents, your passions and trust them to the Father who blessed you.
Ray was 19 years old when he was inspired by the movie Saving Private Ryan and in an effort to make a change and honor our soldiers, he took on “The Rock.” Pictures change from year to year on the rock but twelve years later the effort still prevails.

From Focus on the Family’s PLUGGED IN
READ ABOUT…standing your ground in a world that demands you follow its ways…not HIS ways. In this candid interview with actress Candace Cameron Bure, music artist, Rebecca St. James and author/speaker Andrea Stephens, you’ll see how God blesses those who stand firm in His ways. From Focus on the Family and Plugged in…Fracturing the Formula
Candace Cameron Bure is a former Full House star and current cast member of the ABC Family series Make It or Break It. Andrea Stephens is an author, speaker and former model. Rebecca St. James is an actress, author and Dove award-winning singer/songwriter. All three women are not only talented, successful and gracious entertainers, they’re women who decided not to play Hollywood’s game by Hollywood’s rules. All three have weathered the pitfalls of fame and come out on the other side with more wisdom than whiplash. I spoke to each (individually) to find out what their “formula” was, what they think of the industry they’ve been a part of and what they would tell teens who want to go into the business without suffering the star-studded ailment now known as Britnification. …read more
One of the greatest things about launching new websites is finding terrific friends who share the same passions. We’re thrilled to introduce to you some of our friends and their site, Clash Entertainment ( www.clashentertainment.com)
Meet Ken Raney and Clash Entertainment. It speaks for itself.
Clash Entertainment, Inc. announces clashentertainment.com – a new entertainment/portal website for Christian teenagers!
July 1, 2010 – Clash Entertainment, Inc. is pleased to introduce clashentertainment.com! ClashEntertainment.com is an entertainment/portal website designed to be so rich and deep with entertaining media, that teens will want to visit, and stay for sustained periods of time. The site is updated daily with fresh content that includes news, reviews, and interviews in the fields of music, movies, books, games, comics, sports, career information, and more. There also is a huge list of links to other Christian websites of interest to teens.
To encourage interactivity and participation by teens, an exciting feature is the “MyLife” section which allows teens to let the world know about their life: what they are watching, reading, doing, thinking, prayer requests, pose questions, encourage others, etc. Also, visitors can comment on any article for even more interactivity.
The site has been in operation for over 5 months, and there are thousands of items that have been loaded – making the site very rich in content to keep visitors interested for hours and hours.
“A site like this offers much to the Christian community,” says Ken Raney, president of Clash. “Teens will have access to entertaining, enlightening, and even edifying media; Christian creatives will have an outlet to use their gifts for the Lord and His Kingdom; and Christian publishers will now have access to the teen market, something that has been very difficult in the past.”
“We have a passion for Christian teens,” said Raney. “We want to see to it that they have available to them entertaining media that doesn’t undermine their faith. The Christian teen is the most under-served demographic in media. We believe the Lord has led us to begin to fill that gap. We also believe that soon the window of opportunity will be flung wide open and we will see an explosion of excellent entertainment media for teens.”
The name Clash comes from Ephesians 6:12,
“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” (NLT)
