With the release of the movie COURAGEOUS just days away, you MUST watch this short video of the writer/director/producer Alex Kendrick talking about how God has worked in his life, and in the lives of others, during and through his movies.
One especially poignant moment comes at the 8:30 mark, when Alex talks about the toll that making these movies placed on his marriage . . . especially during the making of Fireproof, and how he and his wife were receiving marriage counseling as the book, THE LOVE DARE was released.
He says, “It’s not that the book wasn’t true, because they are Biblical principles. And I ended up doing them in my own marriage. But God stripped me down to the core and reminded me that just because I know some truth here (in my head) doesn’t mean I’ve got it figured out in my own heart. And that I needed Him as much as anybody. I needed to cling to His grace and His Truth as much as I ever had.”
I hope you will watch this . . . and let me know what you think.
