"Fireproof" Part II

It is time once again for me to shout something from the rooftops! This past Saturday evening, my husband and I went on a date with three other couples to see the movie "Fireproof". This is an incredible movie about the marriage in our present day society. It captures the spirit of most marriages that don't include God in the picture to a tee. We laughed, we cried - even my good friend who hardly cries at anything was crying throughout the whole movie. Just at the right times they would throw in something very funny to lighten the mood a touch.

To make it easy on you, here is the link to the website that allows you to find the movie in a theater near you!

Want to check out even more cool stuff? The creators of the movie have another website that has marriage resources and shows how you can help support the movie. What I thought was neat was that even though it is a movie made by Protestants, they have a page dedicated specifically to Catholics.

When we were walking out of the movie I noticed two very young couples that were "dressed up" in teenage finery going towards the movie theater. I looked up at the marquee and wondered which of those movies (with names like "The House Bunny", "The Family that Preys Together" and "Righteous Kill") they were going to go see. I wanted to run to them and tell them not to waste their money on trash, but to spend it on something that might change their lives. Unfortunately, I'm still not bold enough to do something like that. Hopefully someday I will be able to.

So, do whatever you can to scrape up the time and money to go see this movie. I cannot stress this enough! See it and then tell everyone you know to do the same!

God Bless!


  1. After my husband and I saw Fireproof, we were struck by the movie's celebration of covenant marriage and unconditional love. It was just so different and so refreshing from the usual ways movies treat marriage: by insulting it or by promoting affairs and "freedom" and showing marriage as a joyless, worthless endeavor. Fireproof boldly proclaimed marriage as well-worth the sacrifice and directed people right to Christ to make it happen. My husband and I have the Love Dare book and a "Couple's Kit" which is a bible-study couples can do together with clips from the movie in it. Both have made a real difference to us and continue the movie's bold, sometimes difficult but eternally rewarding attention to sacrificial love. I highly recommend them both!

  2. Thanks for such a wonderful comment. You gave a lot of good insight and I thank you for that. My husband and I were wondering if the Love Dare book was out yet. It looks like it would be good to get.
    God Bless!
