Review of The Good Book DVD. A silent film with a loud message of faith.

The Good Book DVD opens with Daniel lighting a candle to read from his Bible before going to bed. He lights the match and then throws it in the trash can. After his reading he goes to bed. While the family is sleeping the house catches on fire from that match.

He runs away from the house as it is burning, feeling shame. He seeks food and clothing from picnics and clothes lines. He finds a community living in the woods and resides with them for a time.

A church group brings the forest community food and Bibles. One of the Bibles is given to Daniel from one of his friends. The Bible has one verse underlined. When Daniel is reunited with his family he passes the Bible onto the man that found his family.

The man that helped Daniel find his family has a newborn of his own. The baby is not well and passes away. After time, the family adopts a baby. The father leaves the Bible on a sidewalk ledge where a homeless woman picks it up and reads the words. She finds her way to church, that leads to a parishioner helping her find a job.

Each story of the film is someone who needs healing. They find healing through the words of the Bible, the church, and people they encounter along the way. The Bible might be passed along to someone hand to hand, or found along the street, or even in a stolen purse.

Wherever the Bible travels it endures water and fire elements.
It survives for you and me.

The film is silent except for some calm background music that sets the scenes. Don't miss the end of the film for a bit of background on the creators of the film and a testimony of a man in trouble and how he found Bibles to read.

Disclosure: I was sent a limited pre-release copy of The Good Book for this review. The comments and views are my own.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products.

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it?

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
