King’s Faith-Very Good Movie on Netflix

If you are a subscriber to Netflix you may have seen the announcement of the addition of King’s Faith.  This is a very good, well made Christian movie.

I am ashamed to say that I am always surprised at well made and well acted Christian movies. The Christian movie genre is getting better and better and I am excited every time I see a really good Christian movie!

So check out the trailer and if you have Netflix…watch it!  If you do not, I am sure it is on DVD.

It does deal with some hefty subjects (and very well done) so I would suggest that the age group be teenagers and up.  But parents can watch it and then decide if their younger ones are mature enough to see the movie.

Tamera Alexander Takes Us on a Tour of Belle Meade Plantation

TWHN Final w_End

Tamera Alexander’s first book in the Belle Meade series is, To Whisper Her Name.  After I read this book I wanted to jump in the car and drive to Tennessee to visit this plantation.  The book was wonderful and I can’t wait for the next two books in this series.

Tamera has made six YouTube videos that take us on a tour of Belle Meade Plantation and shares with us all the history of this wonderful place.  I’m sharing the first video here and you can go to Tamera’s website to view the rest of the videos.  It’s a wonderful insider look at this beautiful place and it really makes the book come to life for me.  I want to read, To Whisper Her Name again after watching these videos!

Family Movie Time on Hallmark Tonight

I just got a notice from One Million Moms about the family friendly movie tonight on the Hallmark Channel.  It comes on at 8pm ET/PT and 7pm CT.  The title is “Space Warriors”.  It’s sponsored by Walmart and Proctor & Gamble and I’ve seen several of their family friendly movies and they have been good.  Now, this is not a Christian movie, but just a clean, family movie. So if you are unsure, just DVR it and watch it yourself before you let your kids watch it.  The trailer looks good, so I’m going to DVR it and watch it.  Here is the trailer: (following the trailer you’ll see the description from One Million Moms.

It is family movie time again! On Friday, May 31, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT and 7:00 CT, the premiere of “Space Warriors” is set to air exclusively on Hallmark Channel. This touching film was funded by Walmart and Proctor & Gamble, who previously produced action-packed and family-friendly programs like “Secret of the Mountains,” “The Jensen Project” and many other clean films that families all across the country have enjoyed watching together at home.

Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino and four-time Emmy Award nominee Danny Glover join Dermot Mulroney, Josh Lucas and Thomas Horn in a film about the infinite adventure and possibility of the world outside our own.

Jimmy Hawkins (Thomas Horn) has lived and breathed astrophysics his entire life and possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of the field. So, when the opportunity to compete and win a seat on a soon-to-be launched space shuttle arises, he secretly applies despite the reservations of his mother (Mira Sorvino), and father, retired NASA astronaut Capt. Andy Hawkins (Dermot Mulroney). When Jimmy secures the final spot to attend the special space camp at the Space & Rocket Center, which is run by former astronaut Col. Roy Manley (Josh Lucas), he joins an elite team of teens called The Warriors, who must test their skills against a strong but devious opposition, The Titans.

Just as the competition is coming to an end, with The Warriors feeling defeated, there is an urgent crisis aboard the International Space Station. High-ranking NASA official, Commander Phillips (Danny Glover), has run out of options and it is up to these kids to solve the problem and save the lives of the astronauts and cosmonauts some 200 miles from Earth. Using their skills and abilities to work together as a team, The Warriors hatch a brilliant plan that just might save the day.

Family, friendship, loyalty, integrity, honesty and an admirable work ethic are the themes that resound throughout the film. There are two primary lessons learned in the movie; cheaters never win and lying is never okay. During the film, characters caught lying and cheating to get what they want have to deal with the consequences of their actions. The repercussions for their bad decisions are clearly shown. This film teaches that poor choices affect those around you including loved ones, while in helping others you also help yourself. It also includes a focus on teamwork.

This original film is perfect for a memorable family time, as it does not offend faith, include profanity or deliver graphic violence or s*xual content. It is suitable for children of any age. (* used to bypass internet filters.)

The national commercials will be family-friendly, as well. (While local ads are usually safe, that depends on individual stations.) This film has been previewed and has received the One Million Moms stamp of approval.

P&G and Walmart continue coming through for families by filling a void on TV for quality entertainment. So mark your calendars; you don’t want to miss this one!

Jimmy by Robert Whitlow is Now a Movie!

For those of us who are Robert Whitlow fans (and for future Robert Whitlow fans), Carmen has just found out that his book, Jimmy, has been made into a movie.  The trailer looks great.  If you haven’t read the book, I would encourage you to read it first…books are always better than movies, much more detail.

I’m hoping to see this movie soon and if it’s as good as I think it will be, then I’ll buy it for our Media Center.  If anyone sees this movie, please come back here and let me know how you liked it, ok?

Here’s a link to Family Fiction website with the description of the movie and the movie trailer.

How Does An Author Get Her Inspiration for Writing?

We just received Kathy Herman‘s latest book, Not By Sight (Ozark Mountain Trilogy #1) and I haven’t had a chance to read it yet (it was checked out before I had a chance!).  I can’t wait until it’s returned so I can find out how they liked it. I always love to hear from our patrons about the books they’ve read and see the excitement in their eyes when they say “This was a great book, I couldn’t put it down!”.  Now back to my reason for this post…..

I’ve always been fascinated by how authors come up with their stories.  And I received an email from Kathy Herman this morning with a update about her new book and a YouTube video interview.  Naturally, I had to watch it.  In it she explains how she got the inspiration for this latest series.  I found it very interesting and thought y’all might too.

Monumental DVD by Kirk Cameron – History Like You’ve Never Heard Before!

This was awesome!  The BEST history lesson I’ve ever heard. I was not taught this in school and I’m “an old person”, so I know that the younger generation are not being taught the truth about the Pilgrims and the reason they came to America and all they suffered through for our freedom today.

Kirk Cameron was excellent in this production and it was beautifully produced with fantastic quality.  You will not get bored watching this documentary because Kirk is a great storyteller and the experts he interviews tell their part of the history lesson with excitement.

Everyone should watch this film.  I wish it could be shown in public schools, because facts are facts, you can’t change history to suit your beliefs.  And hearing the truth about the birth of our nation is awe inspiring.

Kirk did an extensive tour at the National Monument to the Forefathers at Plymouth, Massachusetts.  I’d never heard of this place and the history of this monument is amazing.

We now have this DVD in our Media Center, so I hope that each and every member of our church will come and check this out and watch it alone, with their kids, grandkids, friends…whoever (or should it be whomever 🙂 ) …just watch it.

I searched for a trailer to include in this post about the movie and I came across a rap song by, IV His Son, and I thought I’d spice up your Friday by letting you watch it.  Just sit back pat your feet, sway to the rhythm, or get up and do some moves yourself.  It’s a well-done video.

The American Bible Challenge Game Show Begins March 21, 2013 9/8c

I watched this show some last season and it was really good.  Of course, Jeff Foxworthy is FUNNY!  And it really challenges your brain to try and answer the questions yourself as you see the teams try for the correct answers.  Give this show a try and see how many answers you can get.  Maybe pull out your Bible and flip through the concordance and see if you can find the answers quicker than your husband or kids…make your own Bible challenge right in your on living room.

Their website is full of neat features, there’s even a Bible study by Max Lucado!

Check out this preview of Season 2 that starts tomorrow night.

That’s My King! Jesus!

This video was shown in our church this morning and it’s amazing.  The man speaking is Dr. S. M. Lockridge and the video was posted by Albert Martin on YouTube.  I’m not sure who made the production but they did an amazing job and I hope they don’t mind me posting it on my blog for others to enjoy.

The Bible Miniseries Review

I thought about just making a comment to my previous post on this epic miniseries, but decided to do it as a post so everyone would get it.  One comment made to the original post, was to be careful about this movie and to go back to the Bible to read the real account.  I just finished watching the first part from last night and I totally agree.  It is a massive undertaking, to be sure, and the visuals are great.  Although, I’m having a hard time with the accents…I never expected Noah to have an Irish accent (at least that’s what it sounded like to me).  Anyway,  I realize that there is no way for them to do a 10-part series about the entire Bible and get it all in, but I had hoped that what they did get in would be accurate.  But just like any movie made from a book, this one is no different, and they have changed the stories to suit the movie.  Maybe not much, but enough that if you know your Bible then you will recognize the difference.

One good thing I hope comes from this movie is that everyone pulls out their Bibles and starts reading the REAL STORY, in God’s own inspired words.  God’s Word is so much better than this movie could ever be.  So enjoy the movie, but realize that it is a very condensed version and some things have been changed.  So after you watch the episodes, get your Bible out and read the actual account and all the stories in-between.  You will be blessed!
