Visual Suggestions

In today’s society, movies have become quite violent, sexually oriented and full of profanity.  I don’t know about you, but, there are many times I need a visual pick-me-up to give me hope of greater things.

Movies are a great way to see and feel the difference that only God can make within our lives.  By seeing it on the big screen, the very ideals come to life while giving us the sense of hope, peace and joy through the characters’ difficulties and how it shaped their lives.

I personally have seen all these movies and, in fact, I own them all.  No, I don’t have any rights or stock in these movies.  I’m simply bringing them to you as I believe they are wonderful “FEEL GOOD” movies with INCREDIBLE MESSAGES!  Enjoy!

The small town of Pacashau, Georgia, has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart. Their newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill, stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true traditional style, while the fiery G.G. Sparrow thinks tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old.




In an attempt to save his marriage, A firefighter uses a 40-day experiment known as “The Love Dare”.  It is an amazing journey that he undertakes while his marriage is falling apart around him.

It really depicts the difficulties and just how God started to turn around their situation. This movie can be applied to any difficulty you face in life. Not to mention that the music is fantastic. Two of the songs became my favorites, immediately.



Love Comes Softly Saga

This is a series of movies created by the Hallmark Channel.  Since there are quite a few movies in the series, I thought I would give you the link to the Hallmark site where they are all discussed in greater length.

My personal favorite is the first one in the series “Love Comes Softly”, made in 2003.  However, the entire series is wonderful.

His manipulative ways permeate all of his relationships—even his wife and son know they can’t trust him.

Jay comes face-to-face with the reality of how he truly conducts himself.  He begins the ride of his life as he commits to honoring God with his business, his relationships, and his life!  Amazing transformations take place that will really tug on your heart.
