His Only Son Movie Review + Giveaway


His Only Son is the story of Abraham and Isaac brought to life. The biblical account doesn't delve into the feelings of Abraham, Sarah, or Isaac. The director, however, added many human emotions that could have been felt through the whole ordeal leading up to the sacrifice on Mount Moriah. 


His Only Son recounts one of the most controversial moments in the Old Testament—when Abraham was commanded by God to sacrifice his son Isaac on the mountain of Moriah. While traveling to the place of the sacrifice, alongside Isaac and two servants, Abraham is flooded with vivid memories from the years he and Sarah spent longing for the son they were promised—the son he must now lay upon the altar.

The film begins with God waking Abraham from his sleep and was told where to go and whom to sacrifice. He told Sarah and she was not thrilled about this perilous journey. The roads were dangerous for travel. The director created events they may have encountered in those times.

This movie did have me researching Isaac's age at the time of this event. I always thought of Isaac being a young boy of 5 or 6 years old. Research showed me that he is depicted correctly here. He would've been older than I've always thought he was.

His Only Son hits theaters on March 31st!

The Mulligan: Movie Review


What a super inspiring movie! I am so glad that I was able to see this film. I am not a golf fan so I was not sure of my feelings about my enjoyment level in the beginning. That quickly changed as the story unfolded. This is much more than a golf story. It is a great story and such a simple way to share the Gospel with others. We serve a God of second chances. There are many times we all need a Mulligan.


THE MULLIGAN is based on the beloved book by former PGA touring pro Wally Armstrong and bestselling author and business executive Ken Blanchard. This inspiring story about relationships, forgiveness, and priorities is a shot of grace. Golf's gracious do-over, a mulligan is the beginning of Paul McAllister’s second chance. Guided by the wisdom and advice of the Old Pro, Paul learns about priorities, self-confidence, and playing a good game both on and off the course. The Mulligan is a parable of second chances. 
 THE MULLIGAN is an inspiring reminder that second chances are only one step away. From the producer of BOBBY JONES: STROKE OF GENIUS, and the director-producer team behind THE ULTIMATE GIFT comes THE MULLIGAN, sporting an all-star cast that includes Eric Close (NASHVILLE, AMERICAN SNIPER) as Paul, Pat Boone as the Old Pro, and PGA golfer Tom Lehman and broadcasting legend Jim Nantz as themselves. See it in theaters for two nights only on 

April 18 & 19.

If it isn't playing in a theater near you, then you can schedule your own private viewing at your church! Be a HOST.

American Underdog *Movie Review + Giveaway"

 I am not much of a football fan, but my husband is. I knew he would enjoy this movie because he has been a long-time lover of all things football. This film did not disappoint. Kurt Warner's story is very inspiring and heartwarming. He knew what he wanted to do, and even after several disappointments, he pressed on and achieved his goals. Faith takes you far! I think this movie would be great for the whole family if you are Christmas Day moviegoers.


American Underdog tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi from Shazam), who went from a stockboy at a grocery store to a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The film centers on Warner’s unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player – but just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda (Anna Paquin) and the encouragement of his family, coaches, and teammates that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is. American Underdog is an uplifting story that demonstrates that anything is possible when you have faith, family and determination. 

You can purchase tickets to see this movie on their main website,
or HERE. You can even purchase advanced screening tickets to watch it TODAY in select theaters!

God's Not Dead: We The People *Review*

 Today is the day!!!

This movie is only in theaters from October 4th - October 6th.

I almost wish this was a little bit longer! It is so relevant to the craziness going on in our country right now and where it is headed.
I enjoyed this movie so much! Hopefully, it can be an encouragement to homeschool families, or any families who live in states that are attacking parental rights in regards to their child's education and government control. We the people have rights! This movie features a fellow homeschooling mom and Christian singer, Francesca Battistelli. She is currently fighting for the right to continue educating her children at home. Several members of the God's Not Dead cast are returning in this film as well.

The God’s Not Dead franchise continues in God’s Not Dead: We the People as Reverend Dave (White) is called to defend a group of Christian homeschooling families.  He finds himself taken aback by the interference of the government, and believing that their right to educate their own children is a freedom worth fighting for, Reverend Dave is called to Washington DC to testify in a landmark congressional hearing that will determine the future of religious freedom in our country for years to come.

ROAR Like a Lion Devotional + Giveaway



With eye-catching art, fascinating stories and facts, Bible verses and prayers, and simple action steps, this 90-day devotional will help your kids approach both fun moments and tough times with their hearts set on God's faithfulness. Facing fears about school and friendships. Dealing with peer pressure and bullying. Handling new challenges, disappointments, and grief. Having the courage to try something new. Understanding how we each fit into God's great story.

Levi Lusko and Catherine Pearson did an amazing job on this devotional for kids. Not only are the illustrations colorful and fun, but the devotions are also very specific to what children may be dealing with in today's world. Each day contains scripture and either a "Did you know?" or "Get ready to roar!" section. It ends with a short prayer for the child to pray to God that pertains to the devotion they just read. My 13 year old wanted to look through it and said that she really liked it even though it's geared to a little bit younger of a crowd.

When We Last Spoke Movie Review + Giveaway


This was such a "pull at the heart strings" movie. When the sisters were having their little tiffs, it reminded me of my own sister's relationship and that of my daughters. In my younger life, we did that drive to the grandparents' house when my parents got divorced. Different circumstances than this story, but it brought back so many memories and feelings.

"Following the lovable and nutty family of sisters Juliet and Evangeline, WHEN WE LAST SPOKE gives viewers an insight into the beauty of the Cranbournes as they journey through the ups and downs of their unexpected situation.

Life for Juliet and Evangeline changes quickly after their father James departs to fight in the Vietnam War and their mother, who feels ill-equipped to raise two daughters alone, leaves them with their grandparents, Walt and Ruby, to pursue her own singing career. Together, the family learns how to overcome heartbreak and uncertainty by holding tight to the most important aspects of life – family, friends, love, and forgiveness.

Inspired by the novel from Marci Henna, director Joanne Hock and screenplay writers Rick Eldridge and Jimmy Hager pack WHEN WE LAST SPOKE with humor, heartbreak, and triumph. Audiences will leave grateful for the gift of family, the relief of laughter, and with a newfound appreciation for the often kooky relationships with friends and family."

About the Author
