Anchored: A Grandfather’s Legacy

“Do you know your grandparents’ story?

Shanna Strackbein didn’t always know hers, but that changed when her Papaw, Dewey Holden, pulled out an old box of slides that brought his adventures to life. Anchored follows her quest, tracing God’s faithfulness in one family’s life over five generations.

The true story Shanna unearths reveals hope in the midst of hardship. When Dewey was a boy, his family struggled to make ends meet during the Great Depression, and after the Pearl Harbor attack, Dewey evades German U-Boats lurking in the shipping lanes near New Orleans. These gripping episodes along with Dewey’s love story with Dorothy Smith, his wife of more than fifty years are captured in this engaging documentary. ”
