Glad you found us! This site has one objective: to help you win the spiritual battle for purity, in every sense of the word. Society encourages us to throw away our virtue; the message sent out by the media is: "everyone's doing it!" We are here to prove that statement wrong! Come in, read some encouraging testimonies, chat with others who strive to remain pure, and reaffirm your belief that purity, sexual and otherwise, is not only possible, but totally worth it!

Think on These Things: Courageous!

Philippians 4:8     Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things (NIV).

Most likely, this isn't news to anyone, but just in case you haven't seen this movie yet, I thought we'd spread the word.  It is the weekend, after all, and what better way to spend your entertainment money than on a movie that will leave you uplifted, and will support God's work?

Unfortunately, I have not yet seen this movie, so I can't speak from first-hand experience.  My hubby and I made plans the other weekend, but then we had some unexpected things come up (speaking to mountains, remember?)  Nonetheless, we plan to see it as soon as possible.  This is the synopsis of the movie as found on their website:

Honor Begins At Home

Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.  While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they're quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.  When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God ... and to their children?  Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.   Protecting the streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That's courageous.

Here is the trailer:

(There are several other previews available on the website.)

You can check the website for theaters in your area, and purchase tickets by clicking here.  I called the Cinemark theaters in Beaumont and Lake Charles and found out that Courageous is still showing, and although they cannot say with certainty how long it will be running, they expect it to run for at least another week.  (I don't know if that includes the following weekend, though, so take advantage of this opportunity while you can!)

If there are no theaters in your area playing Courageous, you're not out of luck.  You can head up an action squad to bring this movie to where you live. 

I am a huge fan of the movies made by Sherwood Pictures.  They keep getting better and better.  The messages are always uplifting and God-honoring.  Like I've said before, if we as Christians would like more wholesome entertainment options, it's important to support the people who create such products.

If you have already seen Courageous, leave us a comment and tell us how you liked it!  I've heard from several people that it's a great movie, and an enjoyable experience. 

Have a great weekend, and if you're looking for something fun to enjoy, check out Courageous!
