Rasmus and the Vagabond Book Review and Giveaway! 10 comments

rasmusENAbout the book:

After running away from an orphanage, nine-year-old Rasmus finds the world a cold and unfriendly place until he befriends an extraordinary tramp called Paradise Oscar. Together they meet more adventure than they ever imagined, solve a mystery, and catch the culprits. Reassume dreams of finding a family and a home someday. But when he does, will he be able to part with his new friend and life on the road?

 

My Thoughts:

What a charming story.  I absolutely loved reading this; I loved the style of writing, and the sweet story.  I will be reading it again, this time to my children.  I suspect they’ll enjoy it as much as I did.  Little Rasmus is the cutest character, so sweet and endearing.  The author really gets into the mind of an innocent little boy stuck in a rotten situation, and shares his thoughts perfectly.  She brings about an innocence and excellence in her writing, and I was absolutely delighted to have the chance to read this book!

 

 

About the Author:

Astrid_portratt_JacobForsell_0Astrid Lindgren, the creator of Pippi Longstocking, Emil, and dozens of other world-famous characters, has thrilled three generations of children with her storytelling. She is the only children’s author with a literary prize, a theme park, a museum, a satellite, and a minor planet named in her honor. (After this last honor, she suggested changing her name to “Asteroid Lindgren.”) A jury appointed by Swedish Radio’s Culture Department to elect the “Author of the Millennium” voted Astrid Lindgren second after William Shakespeare. She was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal and heaps of other awards and honors.
Wanna know what’s awesome?  I’ve got an extra copy of this lovely book available for one lucky reader!!  I promise, reading this book will be well worth your time. :)  Enter below, and good luck!

Giveaway: Roadmap Genesis DVD 6 comments

MV5BMTAxMDk2NTM1MjNeQTJeQWpwZ15BbWU4MDgzNjYzODMx._V1_SX214_AL_Roadmap Genesis is a film documentary that makes the case that the Book of Genesis is a roadmap containing guideposts on how to live a productive, fruitful, and fulfilling life that will help our society lift itself out of its current decline and return it to prosperity, promise, and accomplishment.
When Filmmaker Nolan Leibovitz found himself at a crossroads in his life, he knew he had to choose between continuing to make the Hollywood suspense thrillers that were his livelihood and trying to make the world a better place for his new young family. After much struggle, he found his answer in the Book of Genesis.
He decided to combine his love of the Book of Genesis with his passion for filmmaking and set out to travel the United States, interviewing clergy and public figures in order to build an undeniable argument about the continued importance of the Book of Genesis as guiding force in our Judeo-Christian country.
 
Roadmap Genesis invites Americans of all faiths to engage in a dialogue about the relevance of the Bible in the modern age. Through interviews ranging from Gov. Mike Huckabee of Fox News Channel to Rabbi David Wolpe, from Alan Dershowitz to the Archbishop of Chicago Cardinal Francis George, from Erick Stakelbeck of the Christian Broadcasting Network to Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum, and many, many more, Nolan explores the rules that God has set forth to help us maintain a successful and working society.

 

I wasn’t sure I wanted to watch this documentary.  Honestly, I was worried that I’d be bored, and feel like I was wasting my time.  Instead, I was surprised to find myself intrigued, curious, and emotionally involved.  I actually really enjoyed watching.  Nolan Leibovitz is a filmmaker, and he knows how to create an engaging film.  I love how he speaks with multiple religious leaders/experts from multiple religious dominations.  In the end, I came away with the feeling that we ALL are equal in the eyes of God, and our interpretations of the Bible are all beautiful and important, for our own personal lives!  It was really interesting to hear new perspectives about the book of Genesis.  Honestly, I’ve read Genesis, but I can’t say I’d gleaned as many wonderful lessons from it as I saw presented in this film.  I’m really glad I took the time to watch it, and I’ve started reading Genesis again, with my new understanding. I’m looking forward to it!
See the trailer:

If you’d like to watch this movie for yourself, you’re in luck…one of my readers will win a copy of the DVD!  Enter below, and good luck. :)

23 Blast DVD Review and Giveaway! 7 comments

23 BlastBased on true story:

 

As a typical teenager, Travis Freeman (Mark Hapka) is a local hero both on and off the high-school football field in his small Kentucky town, but in 1997, Travis contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and renders him blind overnight. With the loving help and concern of his parents, physical therapist, coach and best friend, Travis demonstrates what true bravery is: He continues to compete on the gridiron and helps his team advance to the state finals.

 

 

 

 

 

Holy cow, I love this movie.  I was a little concerned about letting my 12-year old watch it with me the first time (because of the PG-13 rating), but I needn’t have worried.  There was mild drinking of alcohol, which gave it the rating, but which was a poignant lesson shared in the film.  I felt fully engaged as I watched, and I actually cried at two different points.  During the movie, I tried putting myself in this young man’s shoes, and simply couldn’t come to imagine it.  I found myself thinking about my challenges, and realizing that, like Travis, I can move on and keep living.  I’m grateful for his inspirational example, and will share this movie with my son and other family members as one that is definitely worth watching!  After watching, I found myself wanting to know more, and so I spent time watching the bonus features.  Wow, what an incredible story, and what a great young man!  I’m so glad I had the chance to see 23 Blast; it’s a film I’ll watch again when I need motivation. I’m giving it 5 stars.

 

 
Here’s the trailer:

 

As thrilled as I was to watch this film, I’m even more excited to give one of my lucky readers their very own DVD copy!  Enter below, using any/all of the options listed. You won’t regret seeing this film. and good luck.  You can also enter the 23 Blast Bowl, where a grand prize winner will receive 5 copies of the DVD, an autographed football from Tony Dungy, and a pizza party for 8-10 guests.  GO HERE to enter the bowl.

The Identical DVD – Review and Giveaway! 34 comments

the-identical-dvd-cover-83

 

The Identical, starring Ray Liotta, Ashley Judd, Seth Green, and Blake Rayne is a redemptive movie about a young man, the son of a preacher, who rejects his father’s desire for him to join the ministry and instead embarks on a career as a rock singer. As he struggles to pursue his dream and rise to stardom, he finds love, pain, success, failure and ultimately uncovers a hidden family secret that reveals who he really us. The Identical is a captivating story about a family restored and a life discovered that lifts your soul and warms your heart.

 

The story starts out extremely engaging.  It’s a sweet, tender story about a young man finding his way in life, and I enjoyed the storyline.  After a while, it seemed to drag on for me…the same story being played over and over.  The music is fun, and I especially like the song “Angel of Mine” that is played when he’s on his first date with a young woman.  I love the moral to the story; that we need to follow OUR OWN path, not the path that others have chosen for us.  I appreciated that it was a movie I could let my kids watch with me, and I didn’t have to worry that there would be scenes that were inappropriate.  We need more family friendly films in the world!

 

See the trailer:

Do you want a copy of this DVD to add to your family’s collection?  You can purchase it at a special discounted price from Family Christian.  Of course, you can also enter to win a copy as well :)

Susie’s Hope DVD – Review and a Giveaway! 21 comments

818768011042

Based on the true story that successfully passed Susie’s Law in North Carolina, which seeks stricter punishment for animal abusers, Susie’s Hope brings to life the inspirational relationship between pit bull attack survivor Donna Lawrence and Susie, a pit bull-mix puppy found beaten, burned and left for dead. Recognizing reflect and abuse were to blame for the tragic attack that nearly claimed her life 10 months earlier, Donna resumes the battered animal and accepts her as family. Together, they learn to heal, love and forgive as thyey lead a historic effort to seek justice and protection, not only for Susie, but all animals. Starring Emmanuelle Vaguer (40 Days and 40 Nights), Burgess Jenkins (Remember The Titans) and Andrea Powell (Ender’s Game, The Twighlight: Breaking Dawn Saga: Part 2), Susie’s Hope is an incredible story of love, loss and redemption.

 

wp55448163_05_06About Susie:
Susie was found nearly dead in Greenfield Park in Greensboro, North Carolina on August 20, 2009. Just a puppy, Susie had licked the face of her owner’s newborn baby. Her owner became violent—she was beaten so severely her jaw was broken. That wasn’t enough, though. She was then set on fire and left for dead. Incredibly and against all odds Susie survived. Donna Lawrence adopted her two months later. Susie is now a trained therapy dog and event won the American Humane Association’s American Hero Dog this year!

 

Guys, you’ve gotta watch this film.  My gosh, it’s just so heartfelt, and so sweet.  Susie stars in the film as herself, and she’s just precious!  My 11-year old daughter watched this with me and cried her little eyes out.  I love to see how deeply she feels when it comes to animals, and it was a real tender thing to be able to watch this with her.  At the very end of the film I started wondering if it would drag on, but it didn’t.  The story is incredible, and inspiring.  I love movies based on true stories!  It’s a powerful thing to see how strong REAL people in our world are – to see how strong human (and animal) resilience can be.

 

Here’s the trailer:

 

Interested?  This website is a great resource for all things Susie related.  Oh, yeah, and one other thing…you can also enter to win your very own copy of this DVD right now.  Awesome!!  If you’re an animal lover, or know someone who is, you’d better enter this giveaway.  The story is incredible.  Open in the U.S. and Canada.

Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas In Theaters November 14, and a Giveaway! 21 comments

kirk-cameron-movie-war-on-christmas-e1409264297862

This Christmas, have your family join with Kirk Cameron’s family and dive headfirst into all the joy, dancing, celebration, feasting, imagination, and traditions that glorify the true “reasons for the season.”  KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS is an engaging story that provides a biblical basis for our time-honored traditions and celebrations, and the inspiration to stand strongly against a culture that wants to trivialize and eliminate the faith elements of this holy season.  So take in the splendor, take in the majesty, take in the story.  Take it all in…and let’s put Christ back in Christmas!  KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS is in select theaters for a limited engagement beginning November 14 for TWO WEEKS ONLY!

 

I was SO lucky and fortunate to be given the chance to view this movie early…before it came out in theaters, and I’m SO glad I was!  What a great film.  The very beginning was a bit cheesy, and I couldn’t decide if it was to be funny or not.  I’m hoping the cheesiness of the beginning setup was on purpose, because I found it humorous. :)  As the film goes on, Kirk tells the very engaging story of the histories of different Christmas symbols.  He talks about commercialism, although not in the way you may think!  The beauty of this movie for me is the WAY these stories are told.  Adding film to the story, and dramatic music, adds so much to the power of it all.  I’m looking at Christmas in a whole new way, and I’ve always been a big believer in keeping Christ in Christmas anyway!  I really enjoyed it, truly.   I can’t lie, I’m dying to get out my Christmas decorations now, and to share with my children the symbolisms and the histories.  To share with them in this new light, as it has been shared with me.  (My husband won’t likely let me get stuff out quite yet, however. ;)  )

 

Would you like to see the film yourself?  Go to www.savingchristmas.com to watch the trailer and to find a theater near you.  Don’t waste time though, because as I said, it’s only going to be in theaters for 2 weeks.  

 

And hey, in keeping with the Christmas, I’m gonna hook you up!  One lucky reader is going to win the following:

 photo 1
A SIGNED Saving Christmas movie poster (by Kirk Cameron), the soundtrack to the film, and a car air freshener (they smell like Christmas trees! :) )  Open in the US and Canada.  Good luck!
