“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

A Journey Toward Love

(Based on a true story)


Screenplay by

 Mark Davis Pickup

Email: markdpickup@icloud.com

Logline: TRANSCEND is the love story of Mark and LaRee Fraser[2] that transcends the heartbreak of death, abortion, degenerative disease (multiple sclerosis) and serious disability to reach a profound commitment to God and each other.  It’s the story of their difficult journey toward a deeper and fuller understanding of love (both human and divine).



After reading the TRANSCEND screenplay, international disability advocate, author, radio show host, and actress, Joni Eareckson Tada commented: 


“My friend Mark Davis Pickup has written a remarkable
screenplay which echoes his own story in a warm and personal way. Mark and his wife have overcome insurmountable odds to discover a rich and abiding love which inspires all who spend time with them. In the broken world where many marriages are crumbling under pressure and disappointment, there is ample room for stories like theirs.”


Commenting on Mark’s miracle, author, lawyer, and Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute Center for Human Exceptionalism in Washington, DC, Wesley J. Smith said:


“I met Mark Davis Pickup in the early 1990s and we became good friends. When I met him, he could barely walk using two canes because of his progressive MS. Over time, I noticed his condition worsen, to the point he became triplegic, that is, only able to use his left arm. He had no use of his legs whatsoever. I am convinced Mark’s dramatic improvement is a miracle. What else could explain a man in the later stages of MS being able to walk again and ride a bicycle? Mark is a very prayerful Christian, and I believe his faith was answered as a sign to the world.”
