This weekend I had the privilege of screening the new movie, The Song, hitting theaters this Friday! I just finished watching the film and I'm trying to gather all my thoughts and emotions and piece them all back together. There were quite a few moments I had alligator tears welling up in my eyes and times where I let out a laugh. This movie was that good! In my opinion, the best movies are the ones that tug on your heart strings and make you let out a giggle at just the right time. You guys, I'm telling you, this movie has it all! 

I've been a little bit hesitant in the past, when I sit down to watch a "Christian" film. Their reputation has been known to have some poor acting and uncomfortably cheesy moments that make your eyes roll. Can I just say they've come a very long way in the movie making industry. The Song directors cast such an incredibly talented group. Consider my socks blown off!

I enjoyed that The Song showed some real life struggles without watering it down. There are some very raw scenes of substance abuse and adultery. Even though this film has some heavy subject matter, I was pleasantly surprised they showed the scenarios in a very real light without holding back simply because it was a Christian film. I was grateful for the moments that made me smile or laugh because it was a much needed break from the seriousness of film.

I love that this movie is a modern version of the Bible story of Solomon. The film writers and directors did an outstanding job of making this movie relevant for today. I enjoyed the pieces of scripture throughout the film. One of my very favorite marriage scriptures is found in Song of Solomon 3:4, "I have found the one whom my soul loves". This is one of many that is heard throughout.

To wrap it up, pretty please with a cherry on top, do yourself a favor and go see this movie! It's an especially great date night movie, but I would recommend it for anyone, really! The storyline flows wonderfully, the music throughout is well done and catchy, and the characters capture your attention! 

I think as a society we're begging for media that inspires. Find a theater near you this weekend, feel inspired, and support this wonderful film! I know I can't wait to watch it again {and again, and again!}.

Here's a special sneak peek of a clip from the movie that The Song Blog Tour gave me permission to show you! Enjoy!

Pin It Now!
Guys, being an Auntie is one of the coolest and most rewarding things on God's green earth! I love this little man so much it hurts! 

Turns out, I've been M.I.A. for that last couple of months. You have this handsome soul to thank for that! I could sit here and apologize over the interwebs about my absence. BUT, I won't do it. The past couple of months our family has been soaking up all the snuggles, the smiles, and the joy that this little human brought when he arrived! 

I will be back in this space more often, pinky promises! For now, it's back to baby snuggles and kissing the cheeks right off this dude!
