Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

The movie "Fireproof" and the Pope encourage married couples

Family, Movies & Books, Religion

The movie, FIREPROOF opens today at 2 area theaters. From the previews, it sounds like a must see for any married couple, and probably would set a good foundation for anyone getting married too."FIREPROOF is the third feature film from Sherwood Pictures--the creators of FACING THE GIANTS and FLYWHEEL."

This is a low-budget film, but the story looks good. Kirk Cameron stars as a firefighter whose marriage is in serious trouble. His father challenges him to the "love dare" for 40 days. A firefighter friend encourages Kirk to work to save his marriage saying you go into a burning building to rescue a total stranger but you won't try to rescue your own marriage? After all, a firefighter's motto is that you never leave your partner behind.

I heard about the movie from a homeschool friend of mine that is going into full time service with Family Life ministry, an organization set up to help strengthen marriages and families. 

Interestingly, the Pope issued a statement today about troubled marriages too. With the help of God, marriage crises can be overcome

.- Meeting with participants of the Retrouvaille Association, Pope Benedict XVI explained that when a marriage is suffering, the spouses are facing an opportunity that "will help them to grow." Guided by Mary* and with the help of the Lord, their love will be purified, deepened and strengthened.

Is your marriage FIREPROOF? The movie opens at the Ridge in New Berlin and the Menomonee Falls 18 today.

What do you have to lose? 


*Although I am not Catholic, I do agree with the Pope that the Lord will help those seeking to improve their marriage.

Don't forget, the Civil War weekend at the Wade House
