Read til the end for your chance to win a free copy of Overcomer!
I’ve seen a lot of talk on my social media lately about boycotting certain television streaming providers and some cable channels due to their content that doesn’t always meet the moral obligations desired for wholesome, family entertainment. I get it! As a mother of three young children, it’s my job to monitor what they’re pouring into their impressionable minds. You can hardly leave a TV on, even during the day, without being present at all times to ensure the content is appropriate for their little ears and eyes. Many times I settle for programming that’s geared towards kids just to make sure it doesn’t go beyond what I want them watching, but I’ve found that even channels supposedly geared towards children or deemed “family friendly” can border on being wrong for our family. I’ve discovered that as a parent I really must listen to God’s leading for what we allow specifically into our home, and that may look different for every individual family out there. I just know from experience that what you take in, that’s what comes out. So we prefer to feed our minds with positive, inspiring, and especially God-honoring entertainment.
With that in mind, you can imagine my excitement when I was approached via my writing to receive a promotional Swag Box for the movie Overcomer! Check out the video of me opening it!!https://briegowen.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/img_1995.trim-1.mov
So, if you haven’t yet heard of the movie Overcomer, allow me to introduce it. I know you’ve seen some of the great films that proceed it. I know I have. Fireproof, Courageous, War Room! After enjoying those great films, several times over, I might add, I’ve been anticipating the release of their newest hit, Overcomer.
The third Kendrick Brothers film to earn a rare A+ CinemaScore®, OVERCOMER also stars Priscilla Shirer (WAR ROOM, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE), Shari Rigby (OCTOBER BABY, WILDFLOWER), Cameron Arnett (MEET THE BROWNS, STAND YOUR GROUND) and newcomer Aryn Wright-Thompson.
OVERCOMER is from the creators of the #1 box-office hit War Room. Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison (Kendrick) after he loses his basketball team and is challenged by the school’s principal, Olivia (Shirer), to coach a new sport he doesn’t know or like. As John questions his own worth, he dares to help the least likely runner take on the biggest race of the year. Filled with a powerful mix of faith, humor and heart, this inspirational story will have you on the edge of your seat.
Although already on digital in November, you can now find Overcomer on DVD and Blu-ray (as of December 17th), which means it’s here just in time for the holidays. Yay! Overcomer is the #1 Inspirational Family Film of 2019 with a 98% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, and with it being out for purchase right now, it’s the perfect, last minute gift for anyone. It’s a movie the whole family can sit down and enjoy this Christmas break together, without fear of what may pop up on the screen. It sounds like something we’ve all been wanting lately. Am I right?
