People Still Finding FIREPROOF

Check out a couple of blog posts about FIREPROOF from just this week:

“Last night Eddie and I watched the movie FIREPROOF it came highly recommended to us by my awesome sister-in-law Ashli. This movie was amazing to say the least. If you are married you need to see this movie regardless of what stage or situation you are in your marriage you need to see this movie. ...
“I am going to say it again EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!! IT IS RELATIONSHIP CHANGING. And I don't want to hear our relationship is fine we don't need it. There is nothing wrong with always reaching for better when it comes to you marriage no matter how good it is.”
(Greenwoodology 101)

“I watched FIREPROOF at Covenant Vision Christian Church yesterday and a few points impacted me. These are not new things but reminders of what I already know and believe. But as we all know and experience, living out what we believe is an entirely different matter. ...
“I really enjoyed the movie and I’d encouraged everyone to watch it. If I had watched it in the cinemas, I probably would have cried my eyes out.”
(One Day at a Time)

The movie that keeps on impacting time and time again!

Me And My wife just got through watching this and we are starting the course at our church tomorrow. You never get too far along in marriage where you can't learn and grow. In fact, it should ALWAYS be a growth and learning process! Let no one/thing come between you and your marriage!

My wife and I are presently separated (6 weeks) and I am at fault. I desperately want to restore our marriage and have struggled through the separation. I have prayed that the Lord will use my pain to teach me to submit to him.

Through a tremendous brother in Christ who recommended that my wife and I watch Fireproof together, I was initially hesitant fearing that my wife would turn me down. She has agreed to watch it with me and has shown a slight degree of interest in how I came about this idea.

We are making arrangements to watch this Saturday night and I purchased a DVD last night. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY fervently that this can play a part in restoring our marriage. I know that God can restore my marriage if we will commit/submit to Him.

Thank you for your movies. My son just watched Facing the Giants again today (on his day off from school) for probably the 20th time. (His first time was when he was three and he didn't move in his seat during the whole movie. He now gets his football out and reenacts scenes as the movie plays.) Last weekent, my twelve-year-old son, my husband and I watched Fireproof together. I just had to thank you for providing a wonderful family movie night for us. We laughed and we cried (okay, I cried and they laughed at me for crying). We pray that God will continue to bless your ministry because we want more movies like this! Keep 'em comin'!

My wife and i just watched the movie for the first time tonight. We were touched by the authentic emotion and blown away by the message.

Praise God for such a great production as a vehicle for his good news (gospel) into marriages.

Impacting message guys! Spoke to me bout my parents and prayerfully, the Love Dare I'm planning to get for my mum will work in drawing my dad back to Jesus. So, when's the next one coming out??

I watched this movie with my husband last night. This morning a friend of mine called to tell me he was struggling in a relationship with his wife. I spent the entire conversation relating back to things fro the movie and it definitely helped me to focus the conversation where I wanted it to go.

My hubby and I watched Fireproof this past Saturday evening. It was our date night movie. I had heard good things but didn't expect it to impact me as much as it did. Both of were deeply emotional... I cried so hard my eyes were swollen by the end of the movie and puffy for a whole day! It literally took my breath away several times.

This movie has an incredible message and is a fabulous story. I don't know if it affects all couples, but this couple (who has been thru some fire) was blown away. I can't get the right words to express how much this movie blessed us, and I know it is blessing others as well.

God's grace is truly the only way to recover and heal a marriage in a fire.

Keep up the good work, brothers.

In Him,

I just wanted to say that when me and my husband (Jonathan Clagg) went to buy this movie we both thought it was about firefighting. See, we are firefighters and we love doing that. Even though it is just Volunteering but we still love helping people. The movie helped me come back to the lord along with the help of alot of friends and family praying for me. But my husband has never been saved and he said that it was one of the best movies he had ever seen. I just wanted to say thank you for making this movie and keep up the work of the lord. God Bless you all.

WOW What a movie. I am in Nairobi, Kenya. I got a copy of this movie from a friend in the US. We watched it with my wife and then we invited our Pastor for dinner one evening and we watched the movie with him. He shed tears. Three weeks later we organised for a couples meeting and we screened the movie. It is such a blessing. Families are getting healed. God bless everyone who made this movie a reality.

So glad to know there is good Christian entertainment to encourage strong and healthy marriages centered in Christ!! My hubby saw a guy wearing a Fireproof tee shirt tonight and I think he wants one too!!

Demo said...

What an absolutely beautifully made movie!
I watched it alone at first and cried and laughed .
I think this love is more meant for men as we have confused respect with love. I too demanded respect from my wife until I realised it was for me to show a Godly love to my wife who then saw my love as a changing point for her to come to that Godly love.

Thank You Fireproof and all those involved.
I pray for God to continue to inspire you guys to challenge us using the gospel to bring us closer to the one that loves us regardless of how we feel!

Hi! My parents sent my husband a copy of Fireproof for his birthday (I suggested that he'd love a copy!) ... with strict insructions to not open it before tomorrow (his birthday!)... oops... I couldn't help myself... we've opened it a day early... watched it... cried (not him... just me!) and are amazed at yet another awesome movie!! We love Facing the Giants... and have bought that one and watched it about ten times so far! I can't wait for the soundtrack to be available in Australia! I'll be ordering it as soon as it is!!

Tania said...

wow i have never watched a movie that spoke to me LIKE FIREPROOF did. i am going through the same thing at the moment and we also have been together 7 years the only diff with us is i am more like Caleb and he is Rachel i want to make it work everyday but he gives the impression he does not want to.... i watched the movie alone last night and i cried my heart out. i am going to make a date where me and my sons dad can watch the movie together...

I just watched the movie today after I heard it for a long time. I was moved with the movie, the story revolves around husband and wife, but the totality of the movie is all about our relationship with God. It relates for everyone. And, I recommend for everyone to watch. I am sending messages to my family and friends that it is a MUST movie. What struck me to with the movie, during the Salvation scene with Caleb and his father as the camera move to the sky, I noticed that the tree branches was a heart shaped as the sun rays shines all over the hearts shaped brances. I was in tears. God is Awesome! as you believe. Praise and thanks for making this film. God Bless us all.
