My husband & I were able to see the movie Facing the Giants in Denver at the CBA conference. I must say this was the Best movie I have seen in years. It gets you right from the start. you go from crying to cheering. The movie is packed full of family values and football. I thought "oh another football movie" I was wrong Facing the Giants is not like any other football movie I have ever seen. I came home totally on fire & excited about this movie coming out in Theaters. I have told all my friends & family about it. I have even told people I didn't even know about it. GO see the movie you wont be disappointed. Unless of course you like me don't have a theater in your area playing the movie. This makes me very sad. The movie is great. I cant say enough good about it with out giving anything away. We came out of the theater encouraged and happy. When is the last time you came out of a movie Encouraged & happy. So excited you wanted everyone you knew to go see it? My prayer now is that a Theatre near me will pick it up. Thank you.
