At the Movies: Date Your Spouse in the House

Looking for some oldie but goodie movies for at home movie night with your husband? Here are a few dvd’s I recently found at my public library. Pop some popcorn and stir up some lemonade. Here you go:

  • A Man for All Seasons – This 1966 movie has a G rating. That in itself is wonderful! How many recent movies are G rated? This movie is about Sir Thomas More. He was a 16th century Chancellor of England who would not compromise his beliefs. He was beheaded by Henry VIII because he would not recant nor compromise his faith. Sir Thomas More’s closing lines are:  “I die his majesty’s good servant, but God’s first.”
  • I Confess – Although I’m not really into the Hitchcock scene, this 1953 Hitchcock drama is riveting! It’s about a priest who hears a murderer’s confession. The priest himself is arrested and goes to trial for the crime. Will the priest betray his vows? Will he compromise his faith? The priest is not willing to betray is vows. Watch to see how it ends.
  • Tender Mercies – A film produced in 1982 with a PG rating. This film depicts a country singer at his low point being drawn to Christ. Touching movie. There is an on screen baptism shown.

Materials from Above Rubies Reviewed

Hi everyone.? I trust that the Lord is leading you and guiding you in His ways this summer.? I wanted to highlight a few resource materials from Above Rubies in the next few blog entries.? Today, there are 2 dvds I want to mention.? The first is called The Family Meal Table.? I’ve mentioned it before, but it’s such a great resource that I mention it here again.? Nancy Campbell (Above Rubies) clearly explains the importance of the family meal table.? Making the meal table a priority is her vision.? Although Nancy does most of the teaching, there are wonderful clips of various families who explain how the family is fed physically and spiritually at the family meal table.? If you’re wondering how to begin implementing this too often lost way of life, you will want to get this.? I have a couple copies for sale, but you may check the Above Rubies website as well.? Email me at??? if you want to buy a copy from me and we’ll make arrangements.

The second dvd is called Rejuvenate with Serene and focuses on the basics of healthy eating.? This can be enjoyed by the whole family and is available from Above Rubies.? Serene is one of Nancy Campbell’s daughters.? There are recipes included and an interview with Nancy Campbell.? You will enjoy seeing Serene at work in her kitchen preparing different dishes and discussing the importance of healthy eating.
