I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


blue like jazz {the movie}

I recently went to a screening of Blue Like Jazz, loosely based on the book, Blue Like Jazz from author Donald Miller. Donald’s tagline on the book is “Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality” and he pretty much brings that tagline into the movie.

The film has a PG-13 rating and isn’t a typical feel-good “Christian” film, instead it explores Christianity in a raw, honest, and thought provoking way. It definitely isn’t for the judgmental … here are a few of my thoughts {if you’re reading through an RSS feed, be sure to pop over to my blog to view the video} …

I really, really encourage you to see the film and if you can make it this weekend … opening weekend, it would benefit the film and future Christian films greatly! And if you can’t make it this weekend, go as soon as you can! :)

Please be so kind to share this with a friend?

    Sounds interesting, I’m definitely curious. I love independent movies so this sounds up my alley. If it were playing in our area and I could get out to see movies more (aka: without two little ones) I’d go! :)

    Thanks for the suggestion! I have a date night scheduled with my husband this Saturday night and was struggling to come up with something meaningful besides dinner. My husband read Blue Like Jazz in college and loved it, so I’m pretty sure he’ll love the movie too. Can’t wait to surprise him :)
