A Greater Yes: The Story of Amy Newhouse is a 2009 Christian film released on May 28, 2009.[1] The story is about Amy Newhouse, who died of cancer, and the effects of her life and death in her surrounding community.[2] The film was shot entirely on location in Amarillo and Pampa, Texas.[3]


Amy Michelle Newhouse was born September 24, 1982, in Kerrville. She moved with her family to Pampa in 1994. She attended Pampa schools. She was active in Teen Leadership, Girls for Christ, Business Professionals of America, Thespian Society, and was manager of the Pampa High School volleyball team. She was active in the drama team with the youth of Trinity Fellowship of Pampa. She planned to attend Christ for the Nation's College in Dallas.[4] She is buried at Citizens Cemetery in Clarendon.[5]


A Greater Yes: The Story of Amy Newhouse is based on the true story of Texas teenager Amy Newhouse whose battle with cancer did not save her life, but sparked a revival in her community. Amy was a very popular girl at Pampa High School, but she is stricken with cancer. Amy ultimately learns that the "yes" from God is not what she expects, but became instead "a greater yes." Revival breaks out in the area as Amy’s faith becomes an example to everyone.
