that's all she can do, right? (putting her trust in God). Am continuing prayers for her. In fact, I say a daily rosary and she is on my list for those I am praying for when I say it.

CJ she is doing ok. she is a bit scared, but she is putting her trust in the Lord. She's feeling ok, just a little sore from the angioplasty and she has bronchitis which isn't helping at all.

Even though the acting was not your normal movie we are used to watching, this was a great movie with awesome morals in it. I mean sure while watching the movie, my husband and his friends were making jokes here and there, but my friend and I, really enjoyed it. In the end, the boys too, saw hey, there was something to be learned from this movie.
Marriage is a two road street......and its not easy to go the same way....but with GOD all things are possible.
So I liked it.

Thanks for the info, Shandy. How's your mom doing?

SUMDUMBGI - I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the 'chick flick'. It is wonderful sometimes when our preconceived notions are proven incorrect! Good luck with the dare.

My wife kinda forced me to watch this movie. I wasn't against watching it but I didn't want to see another chick-flick. I'm really glad that I did watch it though. It sorta changed my view on marriage, for the better. Our marriages are only as good as the work we put into it. I bought the book and started to go through it, but got side tracked. Since today is the first day of lent, i'm going to use the 40 days to help keep focus on going through the book.

another good one made by the same people was fly wheel. I don't know how many of you know this but if you go to www.christiancinemas.com you can find out all kinds of christian movies that have come out. there's also a place on there that I signed up and they send me updates when a new christian movie comes out.

My husband and i saw FIreproof at the theater the day it came out and we watched it again Sunday night at church. It is an amazing movie and has done a lot of good in my marriage and in my home in general. My husband and I bought the Love Dare book Sunday night. Today we are on Day 2.

The acting is a little corny for one reason, none of the actors in the movie, except maybe Kirk Cameron, are not professionals.. they are church members at the church that makes the movies. (Facing the Giants was also wonderful and made by Sherwood Pictures)

I love this movie. I am grateful for the message... and pray that there will be more clean, postitive movies that come out and make it into the mainstream that build up and help, rather than just entertain and don't do anything positive.

Well I've really been thinking about this movie and now after reading all of your reviews and comments I'm going to have to break down and get it. My hubby isn't much into that touchy feely affection thing but maybe I can get him to sit down and watch it with me. I'd also love to try the book, a girl in my bible study was talking about it and said its something we definitely need to get.

Oh bummer. It's too bad you don't live next door, we'd lend it to you!

And princess - I agree. I'll speak with dh. There are two other books I was considering as well. I don't want to give them 3 at a time! (I might leave one til their anniversary!).

Ooooh good idea. I was just thinking what to get a young couple that will be married next month. Now I think I have my answer.

Thanks!

And it is very moving. It is wonderful that it moved the men in your life like that. It shows how caring they are!

I WAS WATCHING MY NEW BABY GRANDSON WHILE MY HUBBY AND 5 SONS WERE WATCHING THE MOVIE. THEY ARE NOT MEN WHO WOULD EASILY CRY BUT I NOTICED MY 17 YR OLD AND HUSBAND BOTH HAD TEARS IN THEIR EYES AT ONE POINT DURING THE MOVIE. WHAT I DID SEE OF IT I FELT WAS VERY COMPELLING IN ITS MESSAGE. WE NEED MORE OF FILMS DEALING WITH THE REAL REALITY IN PEOPLES LIVES, AND THAT HAVE A MESSAGE OF HOPE THROUGH JESUS BY LOVE AND FORGIVENESS. WE WILL PROBABLY PURCHASE IT TO SHOW OTHER MARRIED COUPLES AND THOSE GOING TO BE MARRIED.

it was only at the very beginning when we were sort of learning who all the characters were that I noticed. I, too, then got into the story line so didn't notice, and the story was flowing more so wasn't an issue.

That's a good idea, Shandy. I think we'll try that. And you're right. No words good ever match what the actors were trying to convey in that scene.

I agree that some of the acting was a little corny (or else it was the dialogue at first. It's hard to get dialogue believable).

We watched and enjoyed Fireproof a lot, some of the acting was a little corny though. I ordered the book and I am looking forward to getting it.

I believe we're on day 15 right now, we've missed 2 days and had to do them the next because we got so busy we forgot.

as for having only one book, we only have one also. we read the chapter that goes with that day out loud together, and then the part where you're supposed to write your thoughts and what happened, we both just keep individual love dare journals. my mom and dad only have one book also and that's how they are going to do it too. Have fun with the book. and I'm so glad you loved the movie. that was my favorite part too. I loved it because his leaning on the cross said more than ANY amount of words could have.

Hugs,
Shandy

Hello again! Well, we watched the movie last night, and loved it. The first 15 minutes were pretty sad, though, and we hoped it would get better!

We especially loved the part where Caleb is complaining to his father that he keeps showing how much he loves his wife and he is getting nothing back and how can he keep loving when he gets nothing in return, etc. and his father just quietly leans against the cross! That sure cracked me up!

So, after we were finished the movie we talked about it a bit and Lent is coming up and I mentioned that Lent is 40 days and the Love Dare is 40 days and dh leaves the room and comes back with my "Valentine's Day gift" and it's the Love Dare book! Guess what we're doing for Lent this year? We only have one book, so I don't know how we're going to do this, but we'll work something out.

What day are you guys on?

So, I was reading about this movie on this and another Team. On Wednesday night, at my birthday dinner, my dh said that I had one gift left from him. I tried to sneak a hint out of him about it. One of the kids (I think) let out that it was a DVD. I thought about it and dh saw that I was trying to guess. He told me I had not even heard of it, he'd bet. I said, "Fireproof?" He was floored! He had no idea that I had ever even heard of it, let alone that I would guess he would get it for me! lol!

I am looking forward to seeing it soon!
