Kathy and I had a hot date tonight. When we got home, she turned to me with that look in her eye. You know the look I’m talking about.
“Well sweetie,” she breathed, huskily, “… who’s paying for that?”
And people say there’s no romance in budgeting.
We went to see Fireproof at our local cinema — what a great movie! This film, created by the same church in Georgia who brought us Facing the Giants and Flywheel, was not in any way a disappointment.
Yes, some of the dialogue was a bit stilted, and some parts of the movie were pretty predictable, but it was money well spent. We’ll definitely buy the DVD as soon as it is available. The plot moved along, and the characters were believable and likeable. I’m not going to tell you much more about it, if you haven’t seen it, because I don’t want to spoil it for you.
If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, I would encourage you to go see this movie. Don’t go to see it because you need to ‘send Hollywood a message’ about the need for decent movies for decent people (although that would be nice). Rather, you should go to see it because it will encourage you in your faith and in your marriage (if you have been blessed in that way) and it is good entertainment to boot.
It is certainly a chick flick, but I mean that in a good way.
If you’re not a believer in Jesus, but you’d like to know more about real faith for real people, go see this movie. It presents God’s love for you clearly, in a not-too-preachy way that is understandable and accessible.
Definitely a hot date.

Our church bought 50 tickets to the movie. We’ve been handing them out to people within our fellowship as well as unsaved people.
I am glad to see you guys enjoyed the movie.
Sounds good. Thanks for the tip!
Happyy weekend to you Edgrens. Love, Aunt Kate
We’ll have to watch it when it comes out on DVD. Hopefully Netflix will get it. We weren’t able to go last night. Sounds like a great date night outing.
Hi, guys! Dave and I are going to see this movie tonight with friends. Glad to hear you liked it–I didn’t realize it was by the same producers as ‘Facing the Giants.’ Do you think it’s one the whole family can see?
