TERRI DILL For as long as she can remember Terri has had a passion for the theater and technical theater. As a child, she even wanted to live in the Swiss Family Robison tree house. Terri wrote her first play when she was eight. She would set up the stage in the garage and bribe other neighborhood kids into participating either on stage or as an audience member. It wasn't until 2004 that she decided to try playwriting again. When she sat down at the computer and started to type she says it felt like she was the secretary and God was telling her what to write. After having been the director Drama Ministry since 1999 and teaching Sunday School for 30 years, she was given the chance to work at her church as the Ministry Director. All the jobs have been very rewarding and they have certainly played a big part in her personal faith journey. For the past 32 years, she and her husband Ron have lived in Fort Morgan, CO. They have two grown children. Their family is very close and they do many things together. Her son Brandon has even written music for many of her plays. BRANDON DILL (composer/lyricist/orchestrator) Brandon is a graduate of New York University's Graduate Musical Theatre Program, where he received his MFA. His most recent compositions include: music & lyrics for In Light of Everything (published by Eldridge Publishing) and The Whisper of God (two of the four Christmas musicals on which he has collaborated with his mom, Terri) ; incidental music for Twelfth Night and Dracula(both directed by his wife, Rene); Mass of a Grateful Heart for choir and organ; and the choral anthem Eternal Trinity (based on the dialogues of St. Catherine of Siena). He has also written two short-film scores, orchestral and choral works, ballets, musicals, & children’s songs for liturgical use. Brandon lives in Westminster, Colorado with his wife, René, and children, Jackson, Eliot & Josephine.

The year is 1849, the month December. Once an insignificant port, Prophyte Harbor is now on the sailor’s map as a refuge in Maine. The people of this small fishing island continue living as they always have…simply. They struggle to keep their faith through their challenges. They will soon experience a journey like no other. Only the beams from the lighthouse will remain the constant. They hear this very important message: In life you will weather many storms, but do not fear. I am with you always. Hear my words and know the truth: there is never a time I am n...

The winter of 1860 is a brutal one in Prophyte Harbor, a small village on the coast of Maine. Those who haven’t already left are dangerously low on food and fuel, including oil for the lighthouse lamps which could ensure the safe arrival of a critical supply ship. Meanwhile, the few survivors from a small nearby island that has been devastated by influenza, are seeking refuge on the mainland. During a fearsome night storm at sea, they land, led there by a light from a figure swinging a small lantern. Like the Christmas story of the shepherds and Wise Men bein...
