Fireproof

Wow. Eric and I watched a very powerful movie last night in regards to marriage! It was emotionally draining and inspiring to watch this couple navigate through common pitfalls/difficulties in many marriages. Eric and I are amazed at how much we've learned about each other, true love, and marriage these past 3 1/2 - 4 years. I loved that the movie defines a fireproof marriage as, not one that will never encounter fire, but rather, one that will withstand the fire, when it does come. How blessed Eric and I are to have Christ as our Rock, when the fire comes in our own marriage!
I am going to look for "The Love Dare" book, I think it would be a great way to teach me how to be a better wife and how to love Eric even more deeply.

I recommend this movie to everyone I know, married or single!

As a side note, this movie blew my mind at the job of a firefighter and makes me respect and appreciate what they do every single day. What an honorable, selfless life to lead; giving equal honor to the spouses and families of firefighters, willingly sharing/sacrificing the lives of their loved ones, in order to save others'. Wow.

Ok, Yes. This movie is amazing. I was drained afterwards because of how much I cried. It was sooo moving. If you can get past the bad acting, it's a keeper! :) I actually had to process for a couple of days after I saw the movie. Just so powerful! I'm glad you watched it. Oh, and I also was so happy that they put this on the big screen. What a message about the Lord and his goodness!

Haijj - that made me go, "huh?" and then laugh...:)

Red box has it...I'm sure blockbuster, video review, etc do too...but why pay for those when you can get it for $1? How ever you can get your hands on it, I think its worth seeing...few movies today have such a powerful, useful message. Let me know what you think when you see it.
