Movie Review: Facing the Giants
The rain started here on Monday night, and it is supposed to continue until Friday. So, last night we had a relaxing evening at home and watched a couple of movies. I had heard of the movie Facing the Giants but had not seen it until it popped up on our Netflix recommendations. The movie is about a football coach who feels like he is at the end of his rope. His team is not winning, his job is in danger, his car and household appliances are falling apart, and he and his wife are unable to have children. He puts his life completely in God's hands and by doing so changes his life and the lives of the boys he is coaching and the people around them. Many miracles happen as a result and whether they win or lose they praise God and give Him the glory for everything in their lives. The movie was rated PG and even Nick (6) understood what the movie was about. Art, Chelsea and I also really enjoyed it making Facing the Giants a great choice for a family movie night.
