Courageous is a must see "FAMILY MOVIE"

I have only heard good things about this movie and wanted to see what this was all about. So, last night my husband and I rented this movie, Courageous. And it did not disappoint. My husband knows that if I watch any movie after 9pm, I am going to fall asleep. We started watching this movie around 11pm and we were both glued to the t.v. We even had a great conversation about this movie afterward. I told him that I think this would be so beneficial for the men at our church (shoot, any church, any man, any parent) to see this. And today he actually had a meeting with the men at our church and they have scheduled a date of April 29th after church to watch this movie!

This movie makes you want to be a better parent and teaches you how easily you can take something for granted. Whether it’s life, relationships, friends or even your job … be grateful for it all. This movie has a Christian overtone and there are alot of references about God, prayer, etc. But I knew that before I watched so I wasn’t bothered by it because I am a Jesus girl, it was perfectly fine with me. It even encouraged me throughout the movie. I really didn’t know what to expect before I watched and didn’t know anything about this movie. After the movie, I just wanted everyone to see it – especially men. Children need a father and this shows how important not having one is. I don’t want to tell the story, so I will just say rent it. Below is a description of the movie and the trailer.

What is Courageous?
Honor Begins at Home
Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.
While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God … and to their children?
Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Viewers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.
Protecting the streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That’s courageous.

Have you seen this movie? Heard anything about it? Did you like it?

    My wife and I (big smile) watched this move yesterday and it was a wonderful movie. I like the fact that it had a lot of thing dealing with the natural as well as the spiritual. It was the kind of movie that makes you think about how you as a man should be. And also how we some time don’t see the obvious until it’s too late. I think this is a movie that all men should watch. I too think that it’s a move that should be a part of any men’s group. The ways it show how having the right relationship help to keep you on the right track. I think as men we sometime don’t want to show a sanative side for fear of seeming to feminine. But we need to show our kids that it’s not a bad thing to show that we can be sensitive as well. Like Bernetta I don’t want to spoil it. I will say this, the movie has a slow spot in the beginning but it fits in well with the movie. I give it 2 thumbs up a snap and a circle. Lol. Mr. Man.

    If you like Courageous you should see Fireproof—Kirk Cameron stars as Caleb Holt, a heroic fire captain who values dedication and service to others above all else. But the most important partnership in his life, his marriage, is about to go up in smoke. This gripping story follows one man’s desire to transform his life and marriage through the healing power of faith and fully embrace the fireman’s code: Never Leave Your Partner Behind.
