Don't forget that Fireproof comes out  today (1-27) on DVD.  It is an awesome movie.  It hit very close to home.  My husband and I cried through about half of it!  It would be a wonderful DVD to buy and let friends that are having marriage trouble borrow.

Our Walmart had a special that if you buy Fireproof you got Flywheel free.  We hadn't seen it yet.  It is the first film the church in Georgia made.  They have come a long ways in movie making, but it still was a good movie.  They have a special talent to make us cry and think.  God bless the Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia for their call to help put out christian movies.  We can't wait to see their next project.

I pre-ordered Fireproof, and picked it up the day it came out.  It is an amazing movie.  I also liked their previous movies Flywheel and Facing the Giants. I can't wait to see what they come out with next.

I bought it on the day it came out.  I have the other two movies that Sherwood has released and absolutely loved them!

Shayla, the book is actually the screenplay for the movie, so it is pretty spot on in dialogue, action, etc.  Kind of like reading the movie.  :)

Good then I won't have to say one was better than the other...I hate when that happens, as it mostly does.  Although thankfully usually the book is better :)

FYI, they also have the book "The Love Dare" out there.  That was the book that Caleb's dad sent him to use.  It's pretty cool.  :)
