DVD's and Books

Here are some of my recent favorites from Deseret Book.

I really enjoyed this movie. What an awesome coach with the right attitude about creating men not just winning teams. This is why I LOVE sport movies. Real life at its best.

This movie was a surprise to me because I thought I wouldn't like it but I absolutely did. A great one to watch with your hubby since its about fixing a troubled marriage. They find out whats most important, the other spouse.

All three of these books I chose to read because of the authors. They didn't disappoint. I like to read but I like to read good church books. I'm not into fiction to much. If I'm laying on a beach with time to kill then an exciting fiction story would be great. But my time is so valuable that if I'm going to read something I want it to help me in some way. Kind of like two birds with one stone. I'm actually more of a magazine reader because they're quick reads with good information depending on which ones you choose.

This is my new favorite book. I learned a lot and that's what I think a good book should do. Hubby liked it too.

A good read

A quick fun read

I LOVE both of those movies. My husband saw Fire Proof four times in the theater and I saw it twice. One of those times we went together, the other times we took friends who were having marriage struggles.Forever Strong was a great movie as well. I think they are great gifts for anyone who doesn't have them.
