I  have been married for 25 years.  We have had our share of joyous times, hard times and sorrow.  No matter how long you’ve been married, there is always room for improvement.  Always.  My husband and I have struggled more in the last five years of our marriage than we ever have.  But even with the challenges, we are committed to each other and we are committed to our marriage.  If there is one thing I know and understand, marriage is work, and couples must be willing to work on their marriage in order to remain satisfied and fulfilled.

We’ve been watching a lot of Christmas movies since Thanksgiving.  Traditionally, that is when Christmas begins in our home.  We love the classics, but I am always looking for new movies that share the biblical account of the birth of Christ that I can watch together with my family.


I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to review The Promise: The Birth of the Messiah, by Glorious Films.  Here is a little bit about this animated musical:

The Promise: The Birth of the Messiah is an animated musical celebration of one of the most pivotal events in all human history, the birth of Jesus Christ. In ancient Israel, during the days of King Herod, a young couple’s world is turned upside down when the prophecy of a long-awaited deliverer unfolds upon their lives. They must trust in God’s promise in the midst of rising challenges, and their faithfulness is rewarded as they witness the most surprising and glorious event of all human history – the promise fulfilled in the birth of the Messiah.
