Fireproof

If you haven't seen the movie "Fireproof" yet you are missing out!!! It is a great movie that you can feel good about watching. It is a Christian movie with great values. And HELLO -- KIRK CAMERON -- the boy whose poster's used to hang on my wall when I was like 12.... I saw an interview with him talking about the movie and I thought it was great that he and his wife have an agreement that even if it's for a movie roll they will never kiss someone else.... there is a kissing scene in the movie and Kirk's wife is the stand-in.

Rent it for Valentine's and watch it with your honey!


From the website:

"At work, inside burning buildings, Capt. Caleb Holt lives by the old firefighter's adage: Never leave your partner behind. At home, in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules.

Growing up, Catherine Holt always dreamed of marrying a loving, brave firefighter...just like her daddy. Now, after seven years of marriage, Catherine wonders when she stopped being "good enough" for her husband.

Regular arguments over jobs, finances, housework, and outside interests have readied them both to move on to something with more sparks.

As the couple prepares to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb's father challenges his son to commit to a 40-day experiment: "The Love Dare." Wondering if it's even worth the effort, Caleb agrees-for his father's sake more than for his marriage. When Caleb discovers the book's daily challenges are tied into his parents' new found faith, his already limited interest is further dampened.

While trying to stay true to his promise, Caleb becomes frustrated time and again. He finally asks his father, "How am I supposed to show love to somebody who constantly rejects me?"

When his father explains that this is the love Christ shows to us, Caleb makes a life-changing commitment to love God. And with God's help he begins to understand what it means to truly love his wife.

But is it too late to fireproof his marriage? His job is to rescue others. Now Caleb Holt is ready to face his toughest job ever...rescuing his wife's heart."

I agree...it is an awesome movie! I watched it at home with my husband first and then we watched it at church and there were both men and women in tears. At times there was a loud roar of laughter also. It was great to experience it with our church family and even more wonderful to see the impact it had on everyone.

By the way, I guess I should introduce myself.....Hello, I'm Debra and I've recently been following your blog. :)
