The Woodcarver ~Review & Giveaway~ (OVER)

About the movie:

     Rebelling against his parents and the broken home he comes from, fifteen-year-old Matthew Stevenson makes a destructive choice get attention: he vandalizes the church his father is renovating.  To avoid criminal charges, he agrees to repair the damage he caused to the intricate carvings and finds himself working alongside Ernest Otto (John Ratzenburger), a talented but reclusive woodworker.  Laboring together, an unlikely friendship forms and both come  to realize that all things are possible with faith, family, and friendship.

My thoughts:

     This is a great family movie, it teaches us alot of life lessons.  The one thing I took from this movie is that God does not work on our time but he works on his time.  How many times have we prayed for something and it just seems he isn't listening to us?  Maybe it is that we don't need what we are asking for, or maybe he is in fact working on something better for us!  I am a firm believer that things happen in our lives for a reason and sometimes we don't really know or understand until it is done why he didn't answer our prayers.  I have to say that this is one of the best movies I have seen in a while and it is one that I could enjoy with my children.  It is definitely a must see movie for the entire family!  I enjoy a horror film but I can't watch those with my children.  It is a must see movie.

Spring is in the Air

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Triad Retail Media for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.



     It has become that time of year here in North Carolina where the calendar says that it is still Winter but we are not really sure. We have a cold day and then we have two or three Spring like days.  Those Spring days just give me Spring Fever and make me want to clean out the closets, barns, cabinets, etc., and get ready for the Spring.   So it becomes this time of year you see everyone in the neighborhood cleaning and clearing.  The bad thing about it is we are not free from any snow yet, we usually get it pretty late in the Winter if we get any.  So we work on getting the house done on those days that we get so when Spring gets here we can enjoy the wonderful outdoors and gardens! - Glade Expressions Air Fresheners
