Fireproof

Have you seen it? During our date night last Saturday, DH and I and went to a rare movie (rare in that we rarely ever go to the theatre due to not many offerings interest us enough to pay upwards of $10 a ticket to see and rare in that this was a wonderful, Christian movie that was rooted in the reality of so many families today - Christian or not).

Marriage is hard. Whether a couple has big issues or small issues...marriage is hard. This movie focuses on the condition of the heart of each individual in a marriage and how THAT element plays such a huge part of the success or failure of a marriage. Now, don't get me wrong, this wasn't some sappy, romantic movie...it was deep and "uncomfortable" in lots of ways but that is balanced with a good dose of humor and I definately think both men and women will enjoy it.
http://www.fireproofthemovie.com/ I want to go back and see it again just to absorb some of the things I missed the 1st go round and it will definately be added to our video collection.

Go see it...for your marriage or just for yourself.

I am going to see this. My mom actually gave my fiance an envelope with two 20s in it so she could treat us! She felts it would be that important for us to see.

Yep after seven years I can say marriage is work. I don't buy any of the "oh we've been married ten years and get along all the time" YEAH RIGHT! LOL

Tammy said...

So glad you and your husband loved this movie, too...it really seemed to speak to my husband and I on a certain level, so much that we've been doing the "love dare"...
I'm excited to see so many of us bloggers spreading the news that this is definitely worth seeing!

By they way, come over and help me wish my husband a happy birthday if you have time! :)

I heard an interview with Kirk Cameron about this film and he was saying that every single person working on it, actors and crew were all volunteer! They all believed so strongly in the message and the importance of the movie that they worked for free. I thought that was pretty neat.
