RENN STRIKES (a) BACK(side)!

Today I interrupt the regularly scheduled book review (which will post tomorrow πŸ˜‰ ) for a special post.

Meet Renn.renn

Renn is the youngest, toughest, Grand Master Jedi ever to walk the sands of Tatooine. Besides battling evil Sith lords, Renn is also battling Epilepsy. Renn is the son of Bethany Telles, author of “Waiting for James in a Sea of Pink,” who’s blog I follow. That’s how I “met” Renn. Renn is in the hospital right now and Susanna Leonard Hill came up with this great idea of sending Renn get well wishes. A bunch of bloggers are doing that. Click HERE to see a list of all the other creative get well messages for Renn. You can read more about Renn and learn about Epilepsy by visiting The Brain of a Jedi blog by clicking HERE.

This is my get well wish for Renn –

    • Thank you Ms. Tilton! I actually made a video earlier for Renn, but I used copyrighted stuff, so I couldn’t post it so I just emailed it to Renn for him to see. This video is a second episode and this time I made sure everything I used in it wasn’t copyrighted!

  16. Erik – you are so AWESOME!!!! Renn will be thrilled to see himself starring in this movie!! What a generous and thoughtful thing to do! I can appreciate the work you put into this….I made one video (only 45 seconds long) and it took my daughter and I 3 days to edit it.
