I've seen a couple of really good movies lately.
"I Am David" was an excellent movie. Even my boys loved it, mostly David. I cried and laughed and it was one of those movies that I will not forget. It was adventurous with some really deep scenes.
Another great one was "The Blind Side" which was just a super good and uplifting movie. I really liked how the family was portrayed so positively. The children in the movie were really great kids and the parents were admirable too. I get tired of movies with rotten kids and dysfunctional parents, so this one really impressed me. I was crying in this movie too! I'm such sap.
I just finished reading "Abraham's Well" . My friend, Jackie, thought I'd like it and boy was she right! It's about the slaves of the Native American Indians (is that politically correct enough?), but I won't go into to much detail so that I won't give the story away. I really liked the book and it has sparked my curiosity (and anger!) in this subject. I would definately recommend this book.
Right now, I am reading two books by Elisabeth Elliot. "Let Me Be A Woman" and "The Mark of A Man". Elisabeth Elliot is the wife of a murdered missionary who then ministered to the tribe that killed her husband. It is an amazing story. You can learn more by watching the Beyond the Gates of Splendor documentary. I had not really heard of her much before until a friend from our Women's Officer's Retreat in January said that she really looked up to her. It sparked my interest, and I am hooked on her books so far!
