Win Free Movie Tickets to "The Hill" (Movie Review) #thehill #thehillfilm #inspriationalfilm #movie #mustsee


Synopsis:  Growing up impoverished in small-town Texas, young Rickey Hill shows an extraordinary ability for hitting a baseball, despite being burdened by leg braces from a degenerative spinal disease.  His concerned pastor father (DENNIS QUAID) discourages Rickey from playing baseball to protect him from injury, and to have him follow in his footsteps and become a preacher.  As a young man, Rickey (COLIN FORD) becomes a baseball phenomenon.  His desire to participate in a try-out for a legendary major league scout divides the family and threatens Rickey’s dream of playing professional baseball.  Based on a true story, THE HILL is directed by Jeff Celentano and also stars JOELLE CARTER, country music singer and songwriter RANDY HOUSER, Golden Globe nominee BONNIE BEDELIA, and SCOTT GLENN.

My Review
Summer time is running out with back to school in full swing.  However a good summer can't be complete without a great baseball movie.   "The Hill" will be released August 25th so be sure to check your theatre!  If there is a drive in theater near you I would see if this film will be there before they close for the season!  
Thank you to Frontgate Media for giving me a free screening of this movie so I could give my honest review.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own, I was not paid for this review.   

A baseball movie combined with a true story is what captured my attention to this movie.   Rickey Hill has a fantastic story of overcoming the doubters but also recognizing healing.  It was clear to see there were many struggles for the Hill family, however the family drama is also paired with faith elements.   As a believer I enjoy seeing more films that display Christian principles.  With that said it was also hard to see how the father/pastor failed in a few areas.   One area in the movie that I found frustrating was Ricky's pastor/father who lacked in faith to believe in his own son!   He never fully supported his son till at the end when he finally had a heart check that led him to humility and fully supporting his son.   I can understand that male and father role of wanting to protect your son but he lacked the ability to trust God with healing him and seeing a passion in his son that was a God given talent.   I am curious if the way his dad was portrayed was accurate or just to make the movie more dramatic.  

I am also a special education teacher and part of my mission in life is to help people see they have value and gold in them even if they have a struggle or something to overcome.  I like to push people to do their best and help support their dreams so watching this movie really hit those same feels.  I found myself thinking "you can do this" "let's go"  "Go God Go"   and so many more.   

Make some time to hear this neat story!   Get ready to see a dream become reality for Ricky!

My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
