Books and Movies For Your Weekend

Over the last few weeks, we have come across some great books and movies.  I thought it was worth sharing here.


Movies:  Our favorites are Facing the Giants, The Perfect Game, Everyone’s Hero.  All 3 of these movies are loved by our entire family and our boys are 5, 8, and 10.  Everyone’s Hero makes my boys laugh out loud and has a great message.  Facing the Giants is incredibly inspirational and is packed full of lessons our kids continue to discuss.  The Perfect Game is a true story and makes a big impact.  The Mercy Rule did not make the cut though we gave it a try.  It simply didn’t connect with our kiddos.  I appreciated a wholesome movie that is family friendly.  But of the 4 movies we tried, it was our least favorite.

Books:  Feelings and Faith by Brian Borgman

Please read this.  Please, please, please.  I highly recommend for every Christian.  It was mentioned at church one Sunday. I bought it, and it sat for months on my “to read” pile. When I began reading the first 2 pages, I put it down and ran for the highlighter and pen. It’s that kind of book.

Children’s Book:  The Knight and the Firefly: A Boy, a Bug, and a Lesson in Bravery

Precious book for kids to help them overcome their fears.  Loved by all 3 of my boys.  But my 5 year old has a new favorite book.

    Renee, Jadens favorite book is, “The Three trees”. Y’all may already have it…it’s actually somewhat of an Easter story. It helped him to understand & he actually came to know Christ after reading this book at age 7.
