"His Only Son" Movie Review and Giveaway #HisOnlySon #AngelStudios #OldTestament #film #Easter #Easterfilm #faithgram #christianmovie

What a wonderful couple of months we have had in the media with Christian films!   I have enjoyed the Chosen series and have watched The Jesus Revolution and now I had the opportunity to get a sneak peak at His Only Son!  


Did you know that His Only Son is the first ever movie to use crowdfunding to get a theatrical release!!   Thank you brothers and sisters in Christ for using your money to support Christian films!   This film partnered with Angel Studios  and crowdfunded over $1, 235,000 for this release!   The more seats sold the more theaters it will go to and more screenings at the theater.   

Hollywood spends millions on each film they make but His Only Son had a budget of $250,000!   This movie currently is set to release on March 31st and at 1200 theaters nation wide.   

This timely release is just in time for EASTER!   This film is probably one of the most impactful Easter films in this generation.  You have the opportunity to spend Easter weekend watching this phenomenal film. 

About the Movie: His Only Son recounts one of the most controversial moments in the Old Testament—when Abraham was commanded by God to sacrifice his son Isaac on the mountain of Moriah. While traveling to the place of the sacrifice, alongside Isaac and two servants, Abraham is flooded with vivid memories from the years he and Sarah spent longing for the son they were promised—the son he must now lay upon the altar.

My Thoughts:

As always I like to give you my honest opinions the good, the okay, and maybe even the bad.   First, I was super excited to get an early showing to watch this film.   I know the story of Abraham and Isaac very well.   I love being able to connect Old Testament story to New Testament.   So Abraham being a dad, a dad who waited such a long time for the promise of a son and the promise of being the father of many nations was asked to put his son on the alter.   This parallels to Jesus because God had to allow his son to be the sacrifice for all of us.   These topics are hard for younger ages but with Easter fast approaching it is time to discuss all of what Jesus did for us so we can have a big celebration that Christ is not still in the grave because he is ALIVE AND WELL!  

I hate that Christian films will sometimes be labeled as corny or cheesy.   NOT this film, acting is great, the elements of the film all were professional and looked amazing and not cheap!  There was no thing that could give this film that corny or cheesy label!   Even with a very affordable budget compared to many other films this is film is done and done WELL!  

The story goes back and forth between the traveling to the spot of sacrifice to earlier years of waiting on the promise from God.  One thing I wish they would have done a bit more is the aging of the characters for those scenes.   It was somewhat hard to see the age difference in Sarah and I think Abraham could have had a bit more gray hair too to help showcase the age differences in the film.  Not  that big of a deal but worth mentioning my opinion.  

I also think having some background knowledge of this story is a must.  So if you bring a friend who does not know this biblical story it is time to step up and open the word and share.  There is a little talking at the end of the movie but I wish they would have gone a little deeper to point people the similarities of Jesus and the cross.   The talking though was primarily about fundraising and opportunities to give and then after that was some scriptures to read.  So my heart was conflicted because I would want to ensure that a non believer or a baby christian would  be able to understand.  

This Easter take someone to the movie with you!  Help others see Abraham's faith being tested but our hope being born!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
