Fireproof!

I have no words to say that will give this movie the credit it deserves. So, instead I will beg you to run...do not walk...to see this movie. Do not miss this movie. It has been over 2 years since Dave and I went to a movie. I work evenings and week-ends and it just does not allow us much time for date nights. I have heard about this movie quite a bit, but it was a persuasive e-mail from my dear friend Maria(thank you my dear friend!) telling me I must go see this movie, that made me decide that I would not just think about it and not make it happen, like I often do in the busy-ness of of lives. Take your hubby and go see it...you will be sooo happy that you did. Oh, my goodness...touching does not begin to describe it. You can go to the link above and find a theater in your area that is playing it. It is not playing in all theaters...so you may need to travel a bit to see it, but it is worth it! Let's support the theaters showing it and let's show Hollywood that this type of movie can generate as much sales as the trash movies they put out. Go here to see what ABC News has to say about the (bit of surprise) amount of sales this movie has generated.
Yay God!!!
The picture below is clickable(my own word) and has some good info as well. Please help spread the word......











I want to say thank-you and tell you all how much I appreciate you!! You guys are the best of the best!!!! Thank-you for joining me in sending some love and kindness to our sweet blogging friend, Ella! And thank-you, thank-you for taking the time to leave some words of encouragement for Chelsea...she was so very touched! You all have so much love in your hearts and it just shines through!!!!

You are now the THIRD person who has recommended this movie to me...we hardly ever make it to the show, but I will certainly try to go see it. Yay God is right!

And, Lily totally enjoyed making a picture for Ella, and she continues to ask about her.

Nolan and I tried to get a babysitter last week, but couldn't find one. We had a date night last night and we LOVED IT!!! I really loved Facing the Giants and Flywheel, too, but this one is by far my favorite! I cannot say enough good things about this movie. I only wish there were more movies out there like this.

Regina said...

I agree this is an amazing movie. We won a pre-screening of it the day before it started in theaters. It was awesome.
I wish the church that makes these movies (Facing the Giants and Flywheel) could make them faster so we would not have to wait so long for another one!!!

You are the third person that has blogged about this movie.....we are definitely going to see it...everyone has raved about it and said that it was a must see!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

I think anyone past his or her second year of marriage ought to see this movie. It is a WOW of a movie, and it is the first time Gene and I have left Lydia with someone when we weren't both working at the same time. It was so worth it! And she was just fine, Gene. LOL.

Suzy said...

Ok, and I just had two thoughts: 1)It's hard to believe,even with the explanation underneath, that THIS movie is rated PG and 2)Wouldn't this make a GREAT wedding gift when it comes out on DVD?

Sherri said...

Phil and I went to see it the weekend it opened. We enjoyed it too.

You have helped me so very much

Michelle said...

I have heard nothing but good things about this movie, and I will take DH to go see it soon, I promise!!!

Mei Mei Journal said...

I will look for the movie at a theater near us.
I hadn't noticed your comment about Chelsea. Lindsay (16) has her first real boyfriend. He is a great guy and she really, really likes him. I am not looking forward to the end of their relationship.
I'm so sorry your beautiful Chelsea is going through this right now.
If you are reading this Chelsea, focus on taking good care of yourself and over time it will get better! We have all been there.

Walker said...

We saw it this weekend... AWESOME movie! You are soo right! I recommend it too!

I'll have to keep my eyes open for that movie. We don't get to go much because of the children, but once in a while we get out.

I want you to know that I was contacted by a RAD mom who wanted to help with No Place Like Home.

She adopted a 12 year old from Russia and she is really having some strong RAD issues. This woman is phenomenal like you are though and is dealing with things in a loving and determined manner. Her blog is on No Place Like Home under Russia Older Child Adoption. Creating my own little Nirvana is her blog. I told her I had a friend going through similar things with a younger child and she said she'd love to talk with someone going through this too.

Paula said...

Thanks for reminding me to put it on my Netflix list. I wont be able to get to the theatre any time soon. It looks like a good one!

Cecelia said...

Your name was chosen for the first Breaking Bread Together give away. Please send me an email with your address so I can send your gift certificate. Also, I'll be praying for you this week, so please add any specific prayer request you have in your email. Lots of Love & God's blessings!

Amie@HeartSmiles said...

Okay.. you convinced me. We will figure out a way to go, it sounds worth it. Glad you had a date night with your man! And so glad you were blessed in more ways than one!

Like you, we haven't been to a movie in a very long time. How exciting that there is something good like this out there in the theatres!
