Watch the Exclusive Trailer of “Born This Way,” Premiering Tuesday, July 26th on A&E

Catch, “Born This Way,” on A&E  Tomorrow at 10/9 c!

I must admit, I’ve been avoiding watching television these days like the plague. It just hasn’t been appealing to me with all the politics, anger, aggression, and bad news, it’s been somewhat depressing, so I’ve kept my distance. But,Born This Way,” on A&E  has given me a reason to dust off the remote control and tune in into a reality show that is inspiring, funny, heartwarming and endearing. I’m normally not a fan of reality t.v. however A&E has broken the mold in the most beautiful way!

“Born This Way,” follows the lives of seven young adults with Down Syndrome as they pursue their dreams, navigate through romantic relationships, and  explore friendships. It is evident quite early on in,Born This Way,” that although Down Syndrome is undeniably a part of their life it doesn’t limit them from pursuing their passions. We have these unfortunate expectations in society, that when someone has a disability that they are starkly different from us, when in fact, this couldn’t be further from the truth!  You’ll find yourself quickly, falling in love with the cast and their parents because of their raw honesty with their struggles and their joys.

One of my favorite quotes, is in the season opener, when one of the parents says,  It’s important to recognize, even though we all have abilities and we all have disabilities, that we don’t define and describe ourselves by those,” which so accurately reflects the heart of this meaningful show. In a world where everyone seems so focused on our differences, “Born This Way, reminds us that although we are all different, there are similarities that we all share such as; the desire to be loved, the bonds of friendship, disappointments, challenges, successes and well…just life.

Watch the Preview and Tune in tomorrow, Tuesday, July 26th at 10 PM/9 PM c for “Born This Way.”

Get ready to fall in love with this lovely, funny and talented cast.

Faith, Courage, Love…

If you loved God’s Not Dead, then you’ll be thrilled to know that God’s Not Dead 2  is on its way to movie theaters! God’s Not Dead 2 is the sequel to the highest-grossing independent faith film of 2014. The film stars Melissa Joan Hart, Jesse Metcalfe, Sadie Robertson and veteran actors Ray Wise, Jon Lindstrom, and Ernie Hudson. God’s Not Dead 2 is about faith, courage and taking a stand. What I loved about the previous movie was it asked us to reflect – would we have the strength to express our beliefs no matter the cost? In a world that begs us to conform to its ways this movie is so relevant to a faith believers walk.

Check out the, ‘Heart of the Story,’ a short featurette that gives you an inside look at this faith building movie that hits movie theaters on April 1st.

Need Some Inspiration? See The New Movie Release “Greater” The Story of Brandon Burlsworth

Greater one-sheet

With 2016 underway we can all use a little inspiration to reminds us that nothing is impossible when our faith is rooted in Christ, we have a dream and a passion to work towards making our dream a reality. You won’t want to miss,“Greater,”  the story of Brandon Burlsworth, the unlikely star football player at the University of Arkansas whose inspiring life and legacy taught family, friends and fans about the greater purposes and lasting impact of a life lived for God.

Brandon Burlsworth (newcomer Chris Severio) had a dream, to play for the Arkansas Razorbacks, but wasn’t considered even good enough to play Division I football. That didn’t deter Brandon. Instead fueled by faith, determination and the support of his older brother Marty (Neal McDonough) and his struggling single mom, Barbara (Leslie Easterbrook),  he takes a huge risk by walking on to the team in 1994. He succeeds in the face of staggering odds, and by the end of his college career, Burlsworth was not only a star player in the SEC, but he was also a 1st Team All-American.  He was then taken as an early pick in the 1999 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Then tragedy hits and the real test of faith comes that no one saw coming.

Take a look at the trailer for, “Greater,” and make a date to see it with your friends, family, or church on January 29th.

Need Inspiration? See WOODLAWN!

“WOODLAWN”

A MOVIE WITH A MESSAGE

woodlawnmov

I had the pleasure of being able to view the movie, “WOODLAWN,” before it hit movie theaters last Friday. This was by far one of the most inspiring, touching and exhilarating films I’ve seen in 2015. If you are a football fan you will love this movie, if you are a Christian you will love this movie, if you just need to be inspired you will love this movie…YOU WILL JUST LOVE THIS MOVIE! From Pure Flix (GOD’S NOT DEAD, DO YOU BELIEVE?), Roma Downey and Mark Burnett (THE BIBLE, SON OF GOD) and the Erwin Brothers (MOM’S NIGHT OUT, OCTOBER BABY) comes WOODLAWN, a high school football drama and a remarkable true story that happened in the early 1970s in Birmingham, Alabama when racism and hate ran rapid. This movie shows us that when a  spiritual awakening takes place love and forgiveness replaces hate and anger. It reminds you that when people bond in love and the unity of Christ they can overcome any obstacles, hate simply does not stand a chance. Something we all need to reminded of in this day and age.

The movie centers around the Woodlawn football team players who are struggling not only on the football field, but with one another. Until one day at football camp when they are introduced to Hank, a sports chaplain who ends up practically converting the whole football team into accepting Christ. This spiritual awakening has a ripple effect that is beautiful to watch as you see barriers being broken, respect growing, and sportsmanship at it’s finest. At the heart of the movie is Tony Nathan (Caleb Castille) a black star running back who’s humble nature is absolutely endearing to watch. As the two rivaling teams get ready to battle at the packed stadium of 42,000 fans you realize just how significant this moment in time was to a city who had been ravaged by racism and hate. This is a Christian film about hope and faith, but anyone can relate to this storyline because it crosses all divides.  I was blown away by this film and it will definitely be in my movie library.  If there is one movie you see this year, WOODLAWN should be the one! Take a look at the trailer and plan to see it soon!
