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."

Gary LeVox's ONE ON ONE Album Review + Giveaway

 


I was given the opportunity to review this album and I really enjoyed listening to it. You may know Gary Levox from Rascal Flatts, which he co-founded and was the lead singer in. His new solo debut album ONE on ONE released 8 days ago on May 21st from Big Machine Records. This album focuses on his two passions of music and faith. It features artists including MercyMe, BRELAND, his daughter Brittany, and many more! 


When Gary was asked about the role God has played in his musical journey he said: 

"I feel like God graced us with a platform where we can not only touch people's lives through music but by being men of God offstage too. At those times when we are with fans that are going through something like cancer, it is so wonderful to not only sing for them but to hold their hand and pray with them. I want them to know that they have a friend in me. I'm not just some guy on the stage. I feel like Christ has put me in this position because He knew I could handle the obligation, which often means taking the time to lift someone up in prayer."

I feel it is very important to note that $1 of every purchase goes towards the fight against human trafficking through the Tim Tebow Foundation.

You can STREAM the album on several platforms and grab your copy of this uplifting EP.

My Brother's Keeper Review + Giveaway

 


What a powerful film! Being an Army brat, and still part of that military life as a wife, I feel the very real struggles portrayed in this film in the depths of my heart. PTSD is serious, and many of our returning vets struggle daily. We must remember that we all have struggles, and those struggles look different, but God is there to help us through. We must call upon Him and cast our burdens upon Him. We are not struggling alone in this world! Hallelujah!



SYNOPSIS

"MY BROTHER’S KEEPER shares the story of returning war veteran SFC Travis Fox (TC Stallings) who has one more battle to fight - PTSD. Fox and his best friend SFC Ron “Preach” Pearcy (Joey Lawrence) are in their 6th combat deployment when Preach and his entire Ranger platoon are killed in a deadly improvised explosive device attack. Travis returns to his hometown to settle the affairs of his parents who had passed away years before. In searching for answers about his parents, he also discovers a new obstacle in PTSD. He finds support from church counselor, Tiffany Robertson (Keshia Knight-Pulliam) and slowly begins to rediscover his faith in God, until he discovers a secret. Travis uncovers a secret hidden by his best friend Donnie Berry (Robert Ri’chard) that threatens his new-found faith, restores his guilt, and causes him to consider the unthinkable."

This film was directed by Kevan Otto (A Question of Faith, Forgiven) and written by US Army Veteran Ty Manns (Question of Faith, The 5th Quarter). The film stars TC Stallings (War Room, A Question of Faith), Joey Lawrence (Melissa & Joey, Blossom, Hawaii Five-0), Robert Ri’chard (Coach Carter, Empire), and Keshia Knight Pulliam (The Cosby Show).

Church People Review + Giveaway



My husband and I had the pleasure of watching Church People. I must admit, I did not know where they were going with the storyline. It was very funny and by the end of it, I had tears in my eyes. What a powerful ending that brought everything back into focus.

This movie hits theaters and churches on March 13th so make sure to go and see it!



SYNOPSIS

"Weary from the showiness and materialism that has overtaken his ministry efforts, Guy (Ramsey) goes on a journey to get back in touch with the heart of ministry and be a real role model to his youth group kids. He makes the difficult decision to cut short his speaking tour managed by his money-focused agent (Faison) after realizing that his reputation has become more fame based than Gospel-driven.

But when Guy attempts to return to regular youth ministry, he is thrust into the throes of dissuading the youth group from performing a strange and potentially blasphemous stunt for the upcoming Easter service, starring a young, zealous new Believer, Blaise. In attempting to manage his youth group while navigating an unexpected love interest in the Senior Pastor’s daughter (Cahill) and being a new father to his grown daughter (Manfredi), Guy ultimately rediscovers and puts on a powerful presentation of why we all need to put our hope in Jesus and not in ourselves."


There is also a downloadable 5-session discussion guide.

I recently had the pleasure of watching an episode of Cubekins.

I thought it was super cute! I don't have toddlers or little ones anymore, but this would have been great to watch with them. I love that there was prayer throughout the episode. If they had any questions about what to do, mom and dad took it to God.

Before the Wrath *Review + Giveaway*

SYNOPSIS

Bible scholars continue to debate the timing of the Rapture, but why is such a mysterious event prophesied to happen in the first place? Is there a deeper understanding surrounding this occurrence that we've lost over the millennia that those living in the first-century clearly understood? Althgough most people today no longer believe that Jesus is coming back, newly discovered ancient anthropological evidence from the time of Christ finally reveals unprecedented findings that could prove the upcoming Rapture is not only real, but why this event must soon some to pass. Regardless of your end-times views, Before the Wrath will captivate believers and non-believers alike; revealing new depths of theological understanding regarding what Jesus revealed to the ancient Galileans about the end of the world in ways you could never have imagined.

 


What an amazing and informational docu-drama! This is the #1 Christian movie in America and I can see why! After I sat and previewed it I wanted my children to see it. Maybe other Christians already understood what Jesus was talking about when He told his disciples He would be back for them. When I finished watching this film I had a much better understanding of the meaning of it all. 


This movie highlights the importance and impact of Biblical prophecy. The church has a responsibility to inform anyone who walks through their doors about the prophecies in the Bible. Rapture is one of those topics. We must also understand the culture of the time to understand the parables.


I highly recommend this to every person I know. 

Jesus is coming back for His people! Be ready!




Before the Wrath is narrated by Kevin Sorbo and features:

                  ○ Jack Hibbs - Theologist and host of “Real Life” on SiriusXM 

            ○ Amir Tsarfati - Founder and President of Behold Israel 

            ○ Jan Markell - Founder of Olive Tree Ministries 

            ○ JD Farag - Theologist and Eschatologist 

            ○ Scott McConnell - Exec. Director of Lifeway Research

Beloved *Devotional Review* + Giveaway


I love devotionals! I have several of my own and I purchase a new one for my children every Easter. I'm not sure why that became an annual event for me, but I can't help myself. This is something that our family enjoys doing. Zondervan has done it again with this one! The greatest little devotional for the young woman in your life.

BACK OF THE BOOK

Beloved: 365 Devotions for Young Women uses the inspiring stories of girls and women in the Bible--such as Ruth, Esther, Mary, and Abigail--to encourage you in your faith as you build confidence in yourself day after day. Relationships, inner beauty, and chasing dreams are just a few of the topics that will help you navigate the things that matter most in your life.

Each day features relevant devotion paired with a scripture verse about a biblical girl or woman you can look to for wisdom and inspiration, as well as journaling space to help you reflect on the day's message. Each devotion speaks to the pressures and changes girls like you are facing right now, giving you real-world applications to find God in your heart and keeping Him in the forefront of your life. 

There is one thing that I love about this devotional. It isn't written as January 1st and so on. I love devotions that are just Day 1, Day 2, etc. We all get busy and dated devotionals stress me out! I am hard on myself if I get too far behind. This one is great. I also love that there are lines at the bottom of each page for extra insights or lessons we may have gained from the reading.

 The cover is so beautiful as well are the pages in between. Each page starts with a scripture verse and then has a meaningful and timely devotion that goes along with it. 

Take a look inside the devotion HERE and order a copy for yourself and the young woman in your life. There is great encouragement and hope between the pages,
