I would say that the movie "Courageous" is one of the most remarkable movies that I have ever seen. It is a must see movie if you don't see any other movie this year. If you didn't know any better you would think that it was produced by the church (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). It has such a strong Christian theme that you will be really surprised by the message. You know that it has to be good for me to make a strong recommendation.So we watched this movie a couple a weeks ago and I really loved it's message. It's about four men who decide that they can be more then just average dads. They wanted to be the best dad for their children that they could. They sign a resolution and commit to the following:
I am grateful for the men in my life who are working towards fulfilling these same values. Both my husband and I agreed that this resolution is very similar to the Family Proclamation to the world. Speaking to parents it says:
Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. Disability, death, or other circumstances may necessitate individual adaptation. Extended families should lend support when needed.
