A MOVIE TO SEE!
My husband and I don't go to a lot of movies. Frankly, most of what is shown in the theaters today is not worth seeing...and it's expensive, to boot!
However, a couple of nights ago, we went to see a new movie that is incredible. It is called "Fireproof." It was created by the same people who made the movie, "Facing the Giants." It is endorsed by some great organizations, including Focus on the Family.
I won't ruin the story line for you. I will give you a little "teaser," though. The movie stars Kirk Cameron (of "Growing Pains" fame). Kirk plays a firefighter whose marriage is on the rocks. Throughout the movie, we see the many traps married couples often fall into, which sabotage their marriage, and the changes God can make in a man. There are some humorous scenes as well, which keep the movie from becoming too heavy.
I would recommend this movie to EVERY married couple, no matter if you've been married for many years or just a few months. Whether you have a great marriage or you're struggling, this movie is worth every penny of the ticket price. Consider it an investment in your marriage. And if you feel so moved, make an investment in the marriage of someone else. Take another couple or two along with you to the theater. You'll be glad you did!
If you click on the link above, you can see the trailer, as well as find a theater near you that is showing the movie. They also have a website called "Fireproof My Marriage" with marriage resources to strengthen any marriage. It includes a link for those whose marriage needs urgent help.
And just as a little side note. Several years ago, while still a part of the "Growing Pains" cast, Kirk Cameron made a stipulation that he would kiss ONLY his wife, who was at the time his girl friend on the show. There is a kissing scene in "Fireproof" as well. I was bothered that he would be kissing another woman... But my husband said they actually had his real wife stand in place of the actress (protraying his wife) for that scene! I just had to share that little tidbit with you.
