CLOSED: Courageous (+ A DaySpring Giveaway)


It’s the movie everyone is talking about.

From the makers of Fireproof comes another fantastic inspirational- Courageous.

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?

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.

    I am 14 weeks pregnant right now and have been sick with this pregnancy. My husband has picked up so much slack and has just stepped in so many times when I was feeling sick. I praise the LORD for such a wonderful man. Today is our 5 year wedding anniversary and I am so grateful to God for this man. :)

    I’m so grateful to God for my husband because each new day with him is full of new joy & adventure even after celebrating 42 years of marriage last month. Of course, we had bumps in the road along the way as all couples do, but since the moment we took our vows we knew we were a team that would face whatever came our way. Like a fine wine, he gets better and better with age. We are blessed with 2 grown children who deeply love & admire their Dad and we’re overjoyed with our 2 little granddaughters! :-)

    how hard he works to provide for us.
