Welcome to the first week of 2013! Don’t you feel it’s the perfect time to rededicate yourself to your faith and growth in Christ?
While there are so many ways you can find inspiration, watching a powerful movie can be a wonderful way for you sweet girls to recognize the power of your faith! Here are some great choices, and please share your favorites in the comments!
IN THEATERS: Les Misérables is the most popular musical of all time, and now it’s finally on the big screen! Audiences and critics are loving it. The play/movie’s Christian message also can’t be denied, especially given the love that the lead character, Jean Valjean, develops for the Savior throughout the course of the movie. Valjean’s story of salvation and redemption is one that will endure! If you haven’t seen it already, it’s in theaters right now nationwide and is sure to be a classic for years to come.
TO RENT: Pay It Forward is a simple premise, but one that’s easy to forget about in daily life–do one simple favor every day in thanks for everything that’s good in your life. After all, if everyone pays it forward, the world will be a better place. While the movie itself isn’t obviously Christian, the spirit behind paying it forward most definitely is. And it makes you think–how you can pay it forward in your daily life?
PROBABLY ON CABLE: Rudy is a great movie, even if you’re not a football fan! The powerful and inspiring Christian message of this movie cannot be denied. Rudy worked hard and prayed hard, and eventually not only got to play for Notre Dame, but also received a degree from a top school that has always been grounded in its faith. Watching Rudy overcome all the odds is a great way to remind yourself that God has given you the ability to persevere no matter what. You have to love this description of Rudy–“Sometimes a winner is a dreamer who just won’t quit.” How amazing is that?
What movies inspire you the most? Even movies that are not obviously Christian (on the surface) can provide a lot of positive messages. Gorgeous PI girls, please share your favorites so everyone can share your inspiration!
