"Bringing Up Bobby"- Review plus Giveaway!

As the weather gets cooler and daylight hours get shorter this time of year, many families begin to look for more ways to spend time together indoors.  One activity that so many people enjoy is a family movie night, complete with popcorn, hot chocolate, and cozy blankets.

Even though we are all bombarded with literally hundreds of movies to choose from, there are very few films that offer our families both a positive, faith-building message along with quality screen work. Fortunately, better Christian films are on the rise and there are several to look out for this upcoming week.

I was recently given the opportunity by Provident Films, which specializes in faith-based movies for families and children, to view a new Christian comedy by Glowing Nose Productions called "Bringing Up Bobby."

"Bringing Up Bobby" is a different kind of comedy about being kind of different.  The siblings of the Wyler family (the movie's main characters) are quirky, the comedy style is goofy, yet the message of faith is solid and strong.  The antics of the Wyler family remind us all that when life gets messy, you can still laugh... and look to God for His direction.

This DVD is clean, witty, and appropriate for any age.  The plot offers various situations that are relevant to teenagers, parents, and anybody who at times feels a bit "different" from everyone else around them.  If you desire to create a movie-viewing experience for your family that is both entertaining and eternally significant, then I encourage you to visit your favorite Christian retailer on Tuesday, October 5, to pick up a copy.

And by the way, don't forget the popcorn!
