Courageous Opens TODAY!

Last week I finally made it back to the theater to see the end of The Help (a must see movie for sure) and saw the preview for this movie.  I have to even the trailer is moving! It had my friend crying in the theater and then AGAIN on Sunday morning when our Pastor showed in during the announcement time at church.   I think it looks like it has the potentional to parenting relationships just like Fireproof changed marriages.  But don't take my word for it...check it out!


Film Opens Nationwide September 30th

 “Such great advance momentum reaffirms that the topic of fathers is universal and that COURAGEOUS touches a nerve,” Sherwood Pictures Executive Producer Michael Catt said.  “Present or absent, fathers shape lives and we’re excited to use drama, adventure, humor  . . . to inspire men to the high adventure of full-on parenting.”

is the story of four police officers with one calling: to serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, the men are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle:  fatherhood.  With God’s help, they struggle to be able to find a way to serve and protect those that are most dear to them.  COURAGEOUS is rated PG-13 (for some violence and drug content) and runs 129 minutes.
