A Fragrant Aroma – How You Live

We recently saw the movie, Courageous, and we’re ashamed to admit, we assumed it would be a good story with mediocre acting as are many Christian productions. We are pleased to say loud and clear – We Were Wrong! The story was so powerful from the opening scene that we didn’t give this another thought. Watch this trailer if you haven’t yet:

We all know friends and family members who have gone through family break-ups, tragic losses and irreconcilable differences. Sometimes it feels as if there is no answer but to quit. But God has promised He will never leave us. He has promised to help us do what seems impossible. Quitting won’t make things better, it simply puts all the trouble we’re facing on permanent hold.

So whatever the state of your marriage. We encourage you to go see this movie. Take your spouse and plan some time afterward to talk about what spoke to you most. We guarantee:

You will laugh.

You will cry.

You will be surprised at how the story goes. But most of all you will be inspired to make the most of each day, to be the best parent/spouse/friend you can be. And where you find yourself lacking, you will be encouraged to seek help from God. What matters most is to take serious note as to how you live. We heard this song today by Point of Grace, and it was so applicable to this post we thought we’d share it as well:

If you have seen the movie and are interested in purchasing your own Resolutions document, click on the “Courageous” tab at the top of the blog. There you will find an array of resources including a 21 Day Dad’s Challenge.

May God greatly enrich your lives and marriage as you resolve to be courageous!

    Couldn’t agree more. We took the whole family and had a great talk after the show. Thanks for getting the word out.


  2. I’m really looking forward to seeing this. I’ll admit–I made the same assumption about this film that you did. I’ll try to view it without that assumption. I’m sure it’ll have a positive influence on me as a father, since _Fireproof_ did.

      As a father you will definitely be affected. Our children are grown, but the story is so powerful it still affected us. Let us know what you think!
