That New Movie

Sunday night my husband Rick and I went to see Fireproof. I knew it was about marriage and firefighters. Rick wanted to go but I don't think he was ready to jump up off the sofa and go right at that moment. But he did.

This blog is for teenage girls but I think this movie might be one you'll want to see.

Cool things this movie shows:

1. The differences between men and women--and how temptations can snag us--and usually not the same temptations for guys as for ladies.

2. How marriage is worth working on. Working hard on.

3. The power of Scripture. A few snippets of the Bible are shared. These were the times I sensed God big time.

4. Friends who help you laugh are so important. I can't imagine the movie without the funny firemen. :-)

5. People who listen, pray, and don't judge are priceless.

6. Hard times in life teach us how to help others.

My husband owns a small business. The next day he gave each of the men who work for him money and challenged them to take their wives out on a date to see Fireproof.

Anybody seen it yet?

I've seen it! :) I loved the music video they played at the beginning of the previews, something by three doors down. LOL. I'm totally clueless when it comes to mainstream rock.

The movie was good. I'm a little skeptical about relationships but it was cute. Though I do have to admit, Caleb after Jesus was totally hot. :-)

Thanks for the post, Debbie. Skeptical about relationships--do you mean in general? Or in the movie?
