Do you know Vincent DeFilippo is a famous Christian doll face sculptor?

Look at your little Cabbage Patch friends if you have one or two still. Aren't they adorable! Did you know that the artist who made the sculpt for their facemold is Vincent J.DeFilippo? He is also famous for his face sculpts for the gorgeous My Twinn dolls when they were first introduced.  I acquired my beautiful My Twinn whom I named "Nita" recently in an auction. Her head bares his signature so I did some research. And voila! I came up with this video from 1985 on Youtube. It's so amazing how the Lord has each of us a purpose for the gifts he's given us. Mr. Defilippo is the face behind those faces we love and God's the face behind his face! His story is so encouraging for these bad times. Check out the video.

Just by "co-incidence" the verse of the day on the day I first posted this was:

Hebrews 10:35-36

New International Version (NIV)
35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

Kind of goes with Mr. Defilippo's faith in the video, right?
Does anyone know any more about this artist?
