Dog Days





I am a huge dog lover. I have a boxer named Patch, that is the love of my life and I can't imagine life without him. He is my companion and is in tune with me when I feel down, lonely, sick, or whatever it may be and he does his best to always take care of me. We have a daily routine where we play ball in the morning and every afternoon when I get home from work. I can rarely pass up a dog when I am out without giving it some love. How about you?





I was very excited to see the trailer for this new movie. It is a hilarious and heartfelt ensemble comedy that follows the lives of multiple dog owners and their beloved fluffy pals. When these human and canine’s paths start to intertwine, their lives begin changing in ways they never expected. This is a sweet film about the joy our furry friends bring into our lives and what they can teach us about treating people with kindness and compassion. DOG DAYS releases in theaters in August 8. I hope you will check it out!

God Friended Me Premiere

Quick Question: If GOD asks you to be his FB friend, would you…A) Confirm or B) Ignore His Friend Request



This September, a new and uplifting television series premieres on CBS. GOD FRIENDED ME is about an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God, and unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him.



This is an inspirational show about hope, faith, and a question we’ve all asked ourselves – what’s my purpose in this world - how can I be of service to others and be an agent of good?



GOD FRIENDED ME is created by Bryant Wynbrandt and Steven Lilien, the producing team behind some of tv’s biggest hits including, GOTHAM, HAWAII FIVE-O, and ALCATRAZ. It stars Joe Morton (Justice League, The Good Wife), Violet Beane (The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow), Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi, Homeland) and newcomer Brandon Micheal Hall. The series premieres on Sunday, September 30 on CBS Television.




About: GOD FRIENDED ME is a humorous, uplifting drama about an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God and unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him. Miles Finer is intelligent, hopeful and optimistic, but he doesn’t believe in God. This puts him at odds with his father, Reverend Arthur Finer, a beloved preacher at Harlem’s Trinity Church for 25 years who is stung by his son’s strong rejection of his faith. Miles feels he’s found his purpose in life hosting a podcast where he’s free to speak his mind, but that changes when he receives the ultimate friend request. After repeated pokes by God, Miles’ curiosity takes over, and he accepts the request and follows the signs to Cara Bloom, an online journalist suffering from writer’s block. Brought together by the “God Account,” the two find themselves investigating God’s friend suggestions and inadvertently helping others in need. Joining them on their journey are Miles’s supportive sister, Ali, a doctoral psych student by day and bartender by night, and his best friend, Rakesh, a sometime hacker who helps Miles and Cara research the enigmatic account. Miles is set on getting to the bottom of what he believes is an elaborate hoax, but in the meantime he’ll play along and, in the process, change his life forever.

Premieres: Sunday, Sept. 30 on the CBS Television Network

Wraith

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS:

Wraith (rāth) noun: a ghost or ghostlike image of someone, especially one seen after, or shortly before, their death


Something’s very wrong in the Lukens’ house.

After living uneventfully for years in their historic home, the Lukens family have somehow awakened a ghostly presence. Who is this frightening spirit and why won’t it leave their 14 year-old daughter, Lucy, alone?

Everything changed when Dennis and Katie Lukens discovered they were pregnant again. Expecting in your 40’s is always high-risk and dangerous, so when the Lukens decide all options are on the table - including termination - the unexpected starts to happen. Sinister forces are now conspiring against the family. But is this eerie, wraith-like spirit actually trying to haunt them...or help them?

Wraith is available on all VOD platforms and Blu-ray/DVD May 8th.

www.wraiththemovie.com

From writer-director Michael O. Sajbel, Wraith explores the super-natural story of a family who invites evil into their home after they decide they may not go forward with an unplanned pregnancy. Sajbel, who previously directed One Night With the King based on the Biblical story of Esther was raised Catholic, wanted to present a story about protecting the most innocent of life. “Growing up in a household rooted in God was my biggest influence when I decided to become a filmmaker. On my application to film school at UCLA, when I filled out the forms there was one question in particular that asked, “Why do you want to go to our film school?” I thought I’d put God to the test and put down that I wanted to make films that honor Jesus Christ and spread the gospel throughout the world.” He was accepted which began his journey into filmmaking.


When it came to the sensitive subject about pro-life, he wanted a different take by creating a supernatural-thriller. Sajbel, who is a father of three adopted children, believes in the sanctity of all life. “I had not seen a film about this subject matter presented this way and wanted audiences to have fun with a little twist but to also incorporate a very important message about valuing all life no matter how complicated it can get. We see the Lukens couple struggle with this decision about whether they can afford another child and Mrs. Lukens age and how there could be medical complications and her overall concerns with having a baby at her age. I wanted to convey that no matter what – God provides and the value of protecting an innocent life. Wraith gives us a chance to present this important message in a very unique way.”

The Miracle Season

I started in the band when I was in the 4th grade. It was something new and exciting and a sense of pride as I held my new flute. I continued with band until I graduated high school and during that time I had participated in concert band, marching band, and pep band. It provided me an opportunity to learn how hard work can bring about whatever you are seeking. As we had band every day as a class, I practiced at home daily to learn the techniques and to play well. I also learned discipline and teamwork and a work ethic that included you keep going, even when you are tired and have homework or exams. I was able to experience things and go places I would have never gone as a member of my high school band. We attended Mardi Gras in New Orleans as we marched in a parade, performed at half time at the Peach Bowl, and performed at Sea World, just to name a few.

Do you ever think back about what experience helped shape you into the person you are?

I would love for you all to check out this new movie that is in theatres April 6th, it is about loss, but finding light in the end.

Synopsis: Based on the inspiring true story of West High School girls' volleyball team. After the tragic death of the school's star player Caroline "Line" Found, the remaining team players must band together under the guidance of their tough-love coach in hope of winning the state championship.

DVD Movie Release: Greater and Hillsong: Let Hope Rise

I hope that everyone is getting ready to celebrate Christmas with the families. I think during the Christmas season, it is a great activity to share with the family. Make a big batch of popcorn and chocolate snacks and just pile around in the living room and enjoy some good movies. Everyone can just take a break during the holidays and relax and spend some good quality time together, even if it is just hanging out in front of the tv. I love to watch movies as I am sure most of you do. However, I often find that the general movie going public needs more variety that includes faith and an uplifting message. My husband and I have begun to seek out those types of movies and I recently watched a movie called Greater and one called Hillsong-Let Hope Rise.


Info on Greater

Have you ever had a dream? A dream that you knew was more than likely impossible to reach and many others thought the same thing? Yet, you still held on to that dream and did everything possible to make it happen? I love to hear stories of people that accomplish the impossible, even if it doesn't always end in a happy ending. I like to cheer on the underdog and it gives me inspiration for my own life and dreams.

I encourage each of you to watch the movie entitled Greater. It is the story of Brandon Burlsworth, a guy that dreamed of playing football for the Arkansas Razorbacks. Brandon, as a walk on with the team strives and overcomes and accomplishes his goals. However,the story is about more than a dream, it is a movie about family and faith and sometimes bad things happen to those good people. This movie gets me very excited as I am thrilled that more movies based on Faith and Christianity are starting to be produced. And that these movies don't always show that everything is happy and all works out in the end.









Info on Hillsong-Let Hope Rise

Hillsong, a Christian music group from Australia, has allowed cameras to document their journey. The members tell about how they joined the group and their faith, it follows them on tour and shares some of the time they are home and the interaction of their families. The music if phenomenal and you get a look into how they write the songs they sing and the role that faith plays in that process. Although this movie is a documentary style, I urge you to still check it out. It is a refreshing burst of faith and music.







Both of these movies are going to be released on DVD on Tuesday, December 20, so be sure and get them both so you can enjoy with your family over Christmas.
