Saving Sanity with Fireproof

There is a CHRISTIAN movie opening up this weekend! I'm so excited! Fireproof was made by the same Christians who made Facing the Giants. It stars Kirk Cameron. There is a grassroots movement for we as Christians to go and see this movie this weekend to show everyone in Hollywood that there is a large market of people who want wholesome, interesting movies. If you can't make it this weekend, please see this movie as soon as possible and take your neighbors, friends and family with you.

I don't know about you, but I want to be able to watch real movies with my children without hanging my head in shame at the antics on the screen. Here is the synopsis from the Fireproof 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' newfound 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'm going, are you?

I just got back from watching Fireproof... it was great to see such a different-flavored movie on the regular, big screen
