My thoughts:
Have you heard about Kirk Cameron's new film, SAVING CHRISTMAS?!!! My kids (ages 18 to 8) and I had the opportunity to watch it last Friday, and we highly recommend it. This movie resonated with my spirit, and I hope you will take the opportunity to go and see it! There is a war on Christmas and it's been waging for awhile now. It's time to put Christ back in Christmas and this is one fantastic way to start. The setting for the movie is a family Christmas party, with much of the movie being a dialogue between two brothers-in-law, one of which who is struggling with what Christmas has become in his own home. Some of it is slow, like conversations can be, especially when one is truly listening and wanting to help someone work through something. I loved the pace. I loved the content. Some of it is funny and had us all laughing. Some of it is educational (who knew Saint Nicholas was such a defender of the faith?!). Some of it is poignant and made us stop and think where we would like to go as a family with our Christmas celebrations. I will definitely purchase SAVING CHRISTMAS for our Christmas movie collection.

Check out the trailer:

About the movie:
This Christmas, have your family join with Kirk Cameron’s family and dive headfirst into all the joy, dancing, celebration, feasting, imagination, and traditions that glorify the true “reason for the season.” KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS is an engaging story that provides a biblical basis for our time-honored traditions and celebrations, and the inspiration to stand strongly against a culture that wants to trivialize and eliminate the faith elements of this holy season. So take in the splendor; take in the majesty; take in the story. Take it all in… and let’s put Christ back in Christmas! KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS is in theaters for a limited engagement beginning November 14 for two weeks only!
