Titles on Tuesday: Must See Movie


Husband and I had a chance to go see the movie "Fireproof" this weekend.

We were on a date...with no child...and popcorn...and whatever I wanted to drink.

We were also on a date with the rest of our church, but that is beside the point.


Husband I have what I consider a wonderful marriage. We respect each other. We love each other. We laugh together. We cry together. We fight together. We work through our fights together. We parent together.

And still, this movie had an impact on us. It was a reminder of the sacredness of marriage and the sacredness of our relationship with Christ. A reminder that marriage takes work...by both parties.

The storyline plays out between a firefighter and his wife who have grown apart due to lack of communication and lack of Christ in their lives. Divorce, they feel, is the answer, but a 40 day challenge...a 40 day focus back on the basics of what Christ teaches us about marriage changes everything.

If you haven't seen it, go see it. If you have seen, tell someone about it. And, then let me know what you think. I can't wait to read your comments!

This is a great post. We too, have a wonderful Christ centered marriage that we have worked very hard for. I wasn't sure if this was for us, but now I know it is!
