Although they clashed during the difficult years, Steven’s mother had a profound influence on the way he tells stories
In the first interview clip, Rick Skillman drew out the impact of Steven’s early life within the Conservative Mennonite world — and how it shaped Steven’s childhood.
In the second interview clip, Steven talks not only his lifelong clash with his conservative Amish-Mennonite father but also the powerful impact he had upon Steven’s life.
While studying abroad in London, Steven’s theological clash with his father was deeply exacerbated by the heart-wrenching break Steven experienced with his mother.
Now in this third clip — which begins with the same opening moment as the first two clips —, Steven explores the power of his mother’s influence, and how it still remains with him.
