3 Reasons to Watch Courageous

A few weeks ago my husband and I rented the movie Courageous, which is the latest film by the producers of Facing the Giants and Fireproof.  We both agreed it had such a powerful message that everyone should see...especially men. Here is the synopsis:
Honor Begins at Home

Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.
While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they're quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God ... and to their children?
Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.
Protecting the streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That's courageous.

  1. We absolutely LOVED this film. When it was in theaters I tried to convince my husband to see it, but he just didn't want to. Once it hit DVD, he finally had a glimpse and there were a few times I caught him with tears in his eyes.

    What a great movie for families, especially Dads!


Thanks for Hanging with Mom!
