Kirk Cameron's Comeback?

We watched this movie last night...made by the same christian group that did Facing the Giants. I have to admit, the movie itself was decent (movie critics would tear it apart...look past the first 20 minutes and it gets better), but I whole-heartedly agreed with it's message (what I got from it, anyway). I was relieved to see a movie that supported marriage as a commitment between two people and God, and that God wants to be a part of every marriage. In addition to that, the concept of loving someone, serving someone, without the expectation of gaining anything in return. It's so easy to love people when we know they'll love us back. But what about those who don't love us back, do we withold our love, because it won't be appreciated, accepted, or returned? It made me look at my motives for doing the things I do and reminded me that it's not my job to judge, but it is my job to love. Anyway, that's my little soapbox for the day. If you're looking for a movie that's clean, with a good message (a little preachy at times) and even makes you laugh...check it out.

I'm in favor of good movies with good messages :) But, to be honest, you say Kirk Cameron and I think Scattergories and Ben trying to convince us good ol' Kirk was his hero... :)

Hey Lanette! I'm so glad you have a blog now. You're so creative with the name. How's everything coming on your house? I saw the picture of it on here and it looks great. Those projects I did are really easy (5 steps or less easy) so I can always e-mail you how I did them. Enjoy those cold, snowy, Rexburg days for us. :)
