Courageous-A Movie Review

Tonight I had the honor and privilege to go to a screening of the new movie Courageous that's coming to theaters on September 30th, 2011.  The movie had me laughing then crying then laughing, ladies be sure to bring some kleenex because you will need them! Everyone needs to go see this movie, it's A-mazing and WILL change lives.
COURAGEOUS will capture your heart as you meet four officers, their friend Javier, and their families. 
If you liked Fireproof or any of the other movies that Sherwood Pictures has produced then you will LOVE Courageous.  Sherwood Pictures makes amazing family movies, no bad language, no sex scences, a tiny bit of violence in this one but it does go with the story.  I wonder what their next movie will be, they just keep getting better and better.

Here is a preview of the opening scene

Although the movie was rated PG-13 you don't have to worry about foul language, nudity, etc. I was given this rating due to a violent scene when the police are in a shootout with some drug dealers and it's not really that violent compared to what's seen on TV these days.

Take your dad, your husband, your son, actually any man in your life.  They all need to see this movie.  When the movie ended, it asks a question and men in our movie theater started standing up all over and shouting "YES".

UPDATE:Since the time of this review the movie has been released at theaters and has had a wonderful response.  I took my husband to see it and it changed the way he looks at being a father to our children.  He was a wonderful dad before the movie and is even better now(if that's possible.  Take my advice go see COURAGEOUS!

Robert Pierre, A Christian teenager that can sing!

I was just given the opportunity to review 4 songs by the Contemporary Christian musician, songwriter and guitarist from Orlando, Florida, Robert Pierre.  I was pleasantly surprised by his work which I would consider a soft rock/ballad style and wanted to share some of his songs.  He's currently getting ready to release a new CD called  I’m All In, which will be released this summer.  My favorite song is Identity because as a mom to a tween this is exactly the kind of music that I encourage her to listen to, I want her to know that she doesn't have to follow after the world and what it has to offer her and she has an identity in Christ and has been set free.  By the way, she does LOVE this song and so does my 9 year old son.

If you would like a free preview of 4 of his songs click here.  The four songs available to preview for free are Jesus, You Hold Me Now, Breaking My Heart and Identity,  I'm encouraging my readers to help me promote Robert Pierre by liking his Facebook page  and and following him on Twitter account as well as checking out his website.  This young man has a wonderful future ahead of him, he hasn't even graduated from high school yet but is already an incredible Christian artist.

Here's his video Jesus, enjoy!
