FIREPROOF

I'm so excited!! Fireproof just came out on DVD this week and I was one of the first to buy it. I had preordered it through Amazon.com

Several weeks ago, Becka and Tony saw the movie at the theater. They both liked it so much that they ask Jim and I to see it, too.

I thought it was going to be a movie about firefighters, but Becka told me that it wasn't entirely about that and that it was something EVERYONE should see.

Jim and I agreed to go. I am so glad we did. The movie is a love story that every couple should see together. It was totally captivating--evoking a variety of emotions. We laughed and we cried and cried a little more on the way home.

I'm not going to tell you much about it. I'll just say that if you're married, it is a MUST SEE. IT IS LIFE CHANGING. DO NOT MISS IT. It will help your love for each other grow stronger. I promise.

It would be the perfect movie to rent for Valentine's Day.

I have not seen it but have a son who is a firefighter and I tend to stay away from those movies because the little bit I have seen scares me too much. You think we would like this one???

Barbara said...

It is just wonderful. I know you would love it and it's not too graphic where the firefighters are concerned. It's more about a couple and how they find love again. My husband doesn't really like mushy movies, but at the end of the movie I looked over at him and he was crying. On the way home he said that EVERYONE should see this movie. I immediately pre-ordered it from Amazon and received it a few days ago. Please, please watch it and encourage ALL of your family members to watch it, too. They will be blessed by it.

Barbara said...

Pat- One more thing, my daughter went to the Christian gift center to buy in yesterday and they were already sold out and had to reorder!

Linda said...

Barbara said...

KKJD1- Run...don't walk, to see it!! You won't be disappointed.

Pamela said...

My husband and I were touched by this movie too. Several reasons:
1 -My husband is a retired firefighter
2 - we found a faith and spirituality that made our marriage more healthy

Thanks for your visit!

Barbara said...

Pamela- Thanks for stopping by. So glad you liked the movie!

Jill said...

Barbara, thank you so much for the recommendation. It sounds like a movie I would definitely like to see. It's going on my wish list.

Barbara said...

Jill- Please let me know how you like the movie.

Michele said...

I had forgotten about this movie until you mentioned it. It was one of the few times that the entire audience in the theatre applauded at the end of it! I definitely enjoyed it and felt that it was valuable.

Tileena said...

A good Valentines Day flick, huh? I will surely share all of this with Matty, and this way I shouldn't have to do much convincing. Thanks Barbra!

Barbara said...

Michele- Thanks so much for your comments about the movie.

Barbara said...

Tileena- I think Matty will like the movie.

Donna M. Kohlstrom said...

Thanks for the "heads up" on this movie. My husband and I will be sure to see it. I was a volunteer on a fire department and so was my son and my favorite movies are love stories. From what I've read, I better buy a couple of boxes of tissues when I watch it!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Thanks for the recommendation. If I could ever get my hub to see something besides mayhem and war movies, maybe this one would be nice. :)

Barbara said...

Donna- Perhaps, one for you and one for your husband.

Barbara said...

Angie- You may have to drag him there, but he'll thank you later.

Dawns Ramblings said...

Because of your review I think I will see the movie. It sounds great!. I need a good movie.

Barbara said...

Dawn- You will not regret seeing it.

Jen Kershner said...

I'm excited to see it. I've heard so many great things about it.

Judy said...

I have not heard of this movie...awww, I'm not a part of a "couple." I'm divorced now....and single....besides, *fire* is my biggets fear!

Have a nice Sunday :)

Judy said...

OOPS! Sorry about the typo up there. I meant to type "biggest" not biggets,lol!

Guess I'd better proof-read better!

Barbara said...

Jen- Happy movie going!

Barbara said...

Judy- I think any sensitive soul would like the movie-- married, dating, or single...and there's not much fire, either. LOL.

Kathryn Magendie said...

I'll have to check that out!

Barbara said...

Kathryn- Hope you're having a great day.

Terri Tiffany said...

Awesome movie--our church did a series on it!

Barbara said...

Angie- I heard some churches were doing that.

Anne Thomson said...

I'll look for Fireproof today.I love your playlist! Thanks for your comment... glad you like my ocean painting!

Barbara said...

Ann- Thank you.

Barbara, I have not yet seen this movie... but want to. Our church viewed it twice but because of work I was unable to be there either time. Though through the Jan. sermon series, Fireproofing your marriage, our Pastor has played clips. Though I am not married... I still want to see it. I love Kurt Cameron anyway. He did a great job in Left Behind. I love your blog.
