Courageous...

Yes, I am kindof behind the times on this one, but we just watched it tonight.




WOW. I mean YES, there is some cheese, but it was better than Fireproof in the cheese department.

THE actual reading of the resolution at the ceremony was precious I have been allowed to blog that Dave had some manly tears during the movie...

The end at the church... can you imagine being in that service--- NOT after watching this tearjerker movie but sitting in a service and hearing a man say the words "Adam" was saying.... it was powerful and moving.


Anyway... a good movie. Not one to watch with the kids for a while but later... Maybe Kaitlin-- we will see. It has some amazing teaching moments.

We have been talking for like two years about doing the Passport 2 Purity... and I have SET it for April! We are DOING it! But after seeing the movie I think we will have Dave come pick her up at the hotel and take her out to dinner .... I am not completely sold on promise rings...(I have mixed feelings) but I think it might be neat to end with them having a special time together...



This is the resolution for women---

The RESOLUTION for Women

I do solemnly resolve before God to embrace my current season of life and live with a spirit of contentment.
I Will champion God's model for womanhood and teach it to my children.
I Will celebrate my God-given uniqueness and the distinctions He has placed in others.
I Will live as a woman answerable to God and faithfully committed to His Word.
I Will seek to devote the best of myself to the primary roles God has entrusted to me.
I Will be quick to listen, slow to speak, and esteem others more highly than myself.
I Will forgive those who have wronged me and reconcile with those I have wronged.
I Will not tolerate evil influences in myself or my home but will embrace a life of purity.
I Will pursue justice, love mercy, and extend compassion toward others.
I Will be faithful to my husband and honor him in my conduct and in my conversation, and will aspire to be a suitable partner to help him reach his God-given potential.
I Will teach my children to love God, respect authority and live responsibly.
I Will cultivate a peaceful home where God's presence is sensed.
I Will make today's decisions with tomorrow's impact in mind and consider my current choices in light of future generations.
I Will courageously work with the strength God provides to fulfill this resolution for the rest of my life and for His glory.

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.---Joshua 24:15
