Church People DVD Giveaway

 In CHURCH PEOPLE, Pastor Guy has gotten used to doing things on his own. He has a flair for showy sermons, and is well known as an entertaining pastor.

But when he cuts short a speaking trip to rethink his priorities, he finds that things aren’t that easy to change. This movie will have you rethinking how you prioritize your life and what takes top place in it. Sometimes I think Satan uses the noise and distraction of the world to keep us from hearing God’s voice.

Synopsis: Weary from the showiness and materialism that has overtaken his ministry efforts, Guy (Ramsey) goes on a journey to get back in touch with the heart of ministry and be a real role model to his youth group kids. He makes the difficult decision to cut short his speaking tour managed by his money focused agent (Faison) after realizing that his reputation has become more fame based than Gospel-driven. But, when Guy attempts to return to regular youth ministry, he is thrust into the throes of dissuading the youth group from performing a strange and potentially blasphemous stunt for the upcoming Easter service, starring a young, zealous new Believer, Blaise. In attempting to manage his youth group while navigating an unexpected love interest in the Senior Pastor’s daughter (Cahill) and being a new father to his grown daughter (Manfredi), Guy ultimately rediscovers and puts on a powerful presentation of why we all need to put our hope in Jesus and not in ours.

This movie was entertaining to watch, with some funny parts and some serious parts. But the basic theme was easy to pick out from the rest of the stuff going on. We don’t go to church to be entertained, and our Pastors aren’t there to entertain. We are there to learn, to grow, and to encourage one another. Church is where we refresh before going back out to spread His Word.  I appreciated the underlying message and thought that it was a good way to share it.

Redeeming Love – The Movie

I watched a movie the other night called Redeeming Love. It’s a story that is different from most of the movies I’ve seen out there and that’s why I think I was intrigued by it. Redeeming Love is about a young woman named Angel that was orphaned at a young age and sold to become a prostitute in order to survive. A young man named Michael spotted her on the street and was immediately taken by her. He asked who she was and was told he’d never be able to see her, because she cost too much, to which he replied that she was the girl he’d marry.  I Think what struck me most about this movie was that, even knowing the life that she’d lived, Michael was sure that Angel was the girl for him because God told him that she was the one he would marry. That was good enough for him. To be redeemed without ever knowing your history, your past, anything about you, only that God meant someone to be with you- what a wonderful feeling!

Go see Redeeming Love in theaters starting January 21st! You can even order your tickets in advance by following the link below:

New Anthem Lights Show Coming to Pure Flix Soon!

The Anthem Lights Show

I recently heard about a new series coming to Pure Flix called The Anthem Lights Show. It’s a fun new animated series aimed towards kids and adults of all ages and it’s all about the group Anthem Lights. It stars the group members playing themselves and sharing some tongue in cheek fun and adventures of the everyday life in a celebrity band. Now I don’t know how much you know about Anthem Lights, but they’re a very versatile group with lots of talent. They do a lot of great music of their own, but they also do a lot of spins on songs from other groups. One of my favorites is their rendition of Mary, Did You Know? / Breath of Heaven. Instantly puts me in the Christmas mood every time I hear it! And another is the Wedding Medley. I love how they combined the songs together so seamlessly. But what I really love is their original music. Songs like Can’t Shut Up and If Only say so much to my heart. I listen to their music and it’s like they’re speaking to the Lord on behalf of me.

So, back to this new show on Pure Flix. Pure Flix is a cool app for folks like you and me who want clean programming for their families to watch. No cussing, no violence, think of it as a step back to the 60’s- when you could watch TV with the whole family. You didn’t have to screen programs to see if they were safe to watch. The FCC did that for you. Nowadays, even the movie ratings don’t follow any real system that I can see. So when I find an app that shows faith based shows and movies, I’m in! This app isn’t available on all tvs and devices. You may have to do a little digging to make sure you get it. But there are LOTS of opportunities to watch this app. And I am going to be watching it tomorrow when The Anthem Lights Show premieres on it!

Gentle Angel (A Kenzie Kirsch Medical Thriller Book 4) by P.D. Workman

Gentle Angel by P.D. Workman

This set of books is a spinoff from the Zachary Goldman Mysteries, and Kenzie Kirsch is the girlfriend of Zachary Goldman, and a consistent character in the books from that series.

In Gentle Angel, Kenzie works as the Assistant Medical Examiner. Not the most glorious job, but it’s the one she chose and she loves it. She hopes to be able to become a Medical Examiner someday but for now, she’s content to sit at her desk typing reports and making sure her boss has everything he needs to do the job he needs to do, that is- take care of those who have taken their last breath and make sure their families know why they died. Occasionally, she is allowed to take part in autopsies or offer her opinion when assisting in a difficult case, but she’s happy at her job and works for a boss who values her.

Who could ask for more?

Until a case comes in that doesn’t seem to fit in all the right boxes. Kenzie and Chief M.E. Wiltshire get a body from the Geriatric Dept. at the local hospital. For all intents and purposes, it appears to be just another elderly person passing on. But as they look closer, something makes them take a second glance. Something that makes them take it seriously enough to call in the FBI. Things are getting serious quickly, then Kenzie gets a threatening etter. Now whoever murdered the senior is coming after her. Can she solve this case before something bad happens to her or Zachary?

I love the way this author draws you into the book by offering a problem, then giving you likeable characters that you can easily relate to, and just enough information to want to help solve the case. It’s never the obvious or easy solve though, and that’s what makes these books so fun to read! Great characters, a small town backdrop, and a plot that thickens like a great soup, leaving you wanting just a taste more before setting down your spoon! This one is a winner!

Toymaker: Return of the Lost Toys by Tony Bertauski

Toymaker: Return of the Lost Toys (A Science Fiction Adventure) (Claus Universe Book 9) by Tony Bertauski

All over the world, there was a gift under the tree. Nobody knew where it came from, nobody knew what it did. It was sleek and looked fancy, but it didn’t seem to work. That is, until Avery uttered the words that brought them to life, all at the same time. Then the Hunt had begun. For Avery, that day ushered in the loss of her grandmother, Nana Rai. But for everyone else, the opportunity to find the Toymaker was of utmost importance. Everyone wanted to know where he was. Kids and adults alike turned from their regular lives to follow the clues and seek the Toymaker. Nobody had a clue what exactly they were looking for, but they were darned well going to find it!

This book, like the others in the series, is a well written joyride full of twists and turns that would make any roller coaster ride seem tame by comparison. Grab a seat and prepare to take off! You’ll find characters that look and feel real enough that you half expect them to jump off of the page at times. And the descriptions are out of this world. Colors that taste? You bet! I give this book a resounding 5 and dare you to find a book that grabs your attention quite like it anywhere!

Toymaker is a standalone book, meaning you don’t have to read the other books in the series before reading this book. I have read some, not all, of the books, and I can say with confidence you can easily read this book and understand it fully. However, there are some witty references, Tony calls them Easter Eggs, which have been scattered along the way. It’s kind of fun to be able to recognize when you see one. Just another little perk of being part of the fun for the whole ride, not just the last 5 minutes, if you will. Enjoy the book, then once you find that it was as wild and fun as I told you it would be, go back and start reading the series beginning with:

1Claus : Legend of the Fat Man (A Science Fiction Adventure) (Claus Series Book 1)

GOD’S NOT DEAD: WE THE PEOPLE

NOW AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL AND DVD!

I’m so excited about the newest in the God’s Not Dead franchise! God’s Not Dead: We the People came out today for a 3 day release! This movie has all the makings of a great film. I was glad to see that many of the original God’s Not Dead cast members have returned to star in this movie. Look for David A.R. White as Reverend Dave Hill, Paul Kwo as Martin Yip, and Hadeel Sittu as Ayisha Moradi. New to this movie are Francesca Battistelli, Antonio Sabato Jr., Isaiah Washington, Jeanine Pirro, and William Forsythe.

Francesca Battistelli portrays a Christian homeschool mom who takes on the challenge of fighting for the right to continue to teach her children at home. It’s a battle not unlike many others we are seeing nowadays as the government seeks to take our rights from us more and more. Reverend Dave is called upon to help out with the families that are under attack, and he finds himself amazed that the government would go to the lengths they went to, taking the steps they are taking and even threatening the parents with jail time if they don’t comply. What seems like a small request then turns into a matter for a congressional hearing to determine what place the government should have in determining how a child should be taught and by whom. It’s a powerful movie with a lot of emotion and faith- take tissues!

By now, if you haven’t already, it’s time to go grab tickets before they’re gone.

When We Last Spoke- Family Movie Night

When We Last Spoke

by Jeanine Bevacqua

A heartwarming tale of family, friendship and forgiveness. Directed by Joanne Hock. With Cloris Leachman, Corbin Bernsen, Melissa Gilbert, Darby Camp and Chandler Head.

‘When We Last Spoke’ is a Vietnam era story of 2 sisters who are sent to live with their grandparents when their father is sent off to war and their mother decides she wants to move to New York to follow her dreams. Evangeline and Juliet go to Fireside, Texas, a sweet, sleepy little town, where Popo, played by Corbin Bernsen, and Mamaw, played by Melissa Gilbert, do their best to raise the 2 little girls the way they would want their son to have raised them. What follows is a heartwarming story that is filled with the kind of anecdotal stuff that will take you right back to the 60’s again. This movie was a trip down Memory Lane, with plenty of stops along the way.

She Was at Risk (Zachary Goldman Mysteries Book 10) by P.D. Workman

She Was at Risk by P. D. Workman is Book 10 in the Zachary Goldman Mysteries Series but it is written in such a way that it can be read as a standalone. I have read other books in the series, so I am acquainted with the characters, but I could have easily read this book and enjoyed it without having had read the other books first. Having said that, I did enjoy the first books and would definitely recommend that you read those as well.

Zachary Goldman is a Private Investigator with quite a history of his own. He has a trail of abuse and mental issues that have followed him from childhood into adulthood. Somehow, he has managed to survive and turn his life around, becoming an accomplished photographer and starting a business as a Private Investigator. But his demons can come out at the worst of times and the challenges he faces can be his undoing.

In She Was at Risk, Zachary received a phone call from Gordon- who is the man who married Zachary’s ex wife, Bridget. Gordon wanted to meet with Zachary to hire him. Knowing that the last time Zachary worked for Gordon, Bridget became very agitated and threatened to have him arrested if he came anywhere near her again, Zachary really didn’t want to become involved with Gordon. Then again, Zachary can’t help himself, he’s drawn like a moth to a flame. If he works for Gordon, he might be able to see Bridget, even if only for a moment, and a moment would be worthwhile.  But what Gordon has to tell him shocks him to the core. There is something wrong with a test they had done with the twins Bridget is carrying. A possibility of them having Huntington’s Disease, even in later life, has shocked both Gordon and Bridget and now they don’t know what to do. After undergoing cancer treatment and freezing her eggs, it was a miracle that she was able to conceive. Gordon is concerned because neither he nor Bridget have the gene that causes Huntington’s and this is why he has come to Zachary. Could Bridget have cheated on him with someone else?

Church People

We’ve all been over zealous at one time or another, trying to do things with our own power and might rather than to call upon the strength and wisdom of others who might know better. Sometimes, it’s false pride telling us that we know better, we don’t need anyone’s help, that we can do it ourselves. But we were designed to work together, not alone, and we are always to call upon the Lord for help. He wants us to trust Him with everything in our lives, no matter how small.

 In Church People, Pastor Guy has gotten used to doing things on his own. He has a flair for the showy sermons, and is well known as an entertaining pastor. But when he cuts short a speaking trip to rethink his priorities, he finds that things aren’t that easy to change. This movie will have you rethinking how you prioritize your worship time versus your me time. And just who is in charge when you go to tell others about Christ. This movie was entertaining to watch, with some funny parts and some serious parts. But the basic theme was easy to pick out from the rest of the stuff going on. We don’t go to church to be entertained, and our Pastors aren’t there to entertain. We are there to learn, to grow, and to encourage one another. Church is where we refresh before going back out to spread His Word. I appreciated the underlying message and thought that it was a good way to share it.

Along with the movie is a 5 part bible study that goes along with the theme of the Here’s. It includes a video clip from the movie, scripture verses, a short devotional, and discussion questions to read and discuss with your group. Here is an example of the video clips that go with the discussion questions:

He Never Forgot By P.D. Workman

He Never Forgot is the 9th book in the Zachary Goldman Mysteries Series but it is written in such a way that it can be read as a standalone. I have read other books in the series, so I am acquainted with the characters, but I could have easily read this book and enjoyed it without having had read the other books first. Having said that, I did enjoy the first books and would definitely recommend that you read those as well.

Zachary Goldman is a Private Investigator with quite a history of his own. He has a trail of abuse and mental issues that have followed him from childhood into adulthood. Somehow, he has managed to survive and turn his life around, becoming an accomplished photographer and starting a business as a Private Investigator. But his demons can come out at the worst of times and the challenges he faces can be his undoing.

In He Never Forgot, Zachary is approached by Ben Burton, who has a curious request. He was adopted at a young age and he doesn’t remember anything about his birth parents, but he wants Zachary to help him find his childhood home. He can’t really explain why, he just feels compelled to see it again. Without much of anything to go on; no last name of his birth parents, no records, nothing to speak of, Zachary takes the case. But working with Ben isn’t easy. He has his own demons, and they come out every day in the form of drinking binges that render Ben mean, senseless, and hard to deal with. Then one day, something seems familiar and suddenly Ben begins to recognize things. Could this be where he lived as a child? And could there be a reason he had forgotten so much from his childhood?

This book was well written and dealt with some serious childhood abuse issues in a very straightforward way. The author does a good job of taking on many serious topics and building her plots around them, allowing her readers to see what’s behind the curtain so to speak. She does this with a delicate but honest manner, being truthful about what it’s like to live in the midst of such social issues as child abuse, drug and alcohol abuse, and many others. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a book of a more serious subject matter.
