Overcomer, sure to be another Kendrick success

I can honestly say that whenever I see a Kendrick brothers movie on the horizon I get pretty excited to see what God will be doing next. Overcomer that comes out this August, will be the 6th movie for the Kendrick brothers. Movies like War Room, Courageous and Fireproof just to name a few. The next chapter in their film legacy, Overcomer will surely be a life-changing film as well. “OVERCOMER in many regards, is a discovery of who we are in Christ, who gets to determine our identity and what we have to overcome to embrace the life God has for us,” said Alex Kendrick. In a day and age where everyone seems to be struggling with their identity, Overcomer deals with this struggle head-on. The movie involves a young girl who is not your typical cross-country runner. Not only is she dealing with her own identity in Christ crisis but a health issue as well. As a former cross country runner, I can personally attest to the grueling sport. Having not only personal but physical battles this young girl has, she can only be but an overcomer herself. Movie Synopsis: Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and […]

Holy Roar – Album Review and Giveaway

Surely goodness, love and mercy will follow wherever I go. Chris Tomlin released his latest album Holy Roar last week and put it simply I love it. Goodness, love, and mercy are a reoccurring theme throughout the tracks. Three things we all could use more of in this world. Holy Roar already has a couple tracks on the radio and there are a few more I think could definitely be the next hit either on the radio or to hear live at his upcoming tour.  Holy Roar’s album theme is the freedom, the experience, the wonder of worship. It is seeing the church come together, hands lifted to God, pouring out our praise with an eternal song in our hearts. It’s every voice together, changing the way we worship. Personally I cannot wait to experience this type of worship first hand at Chris Tomlin’s upcoming tour which currently there are no tour dates in my city but hopefully, one will get added as there are stops nearby. Until then I look forward to being able to worship wherever I am listening to any or every track of Holy Roar. I had the opportunity to see Chris a few years back live in concert and have been a fan for many many years. His latest album is no exception. From the title track Holy Roar, he sets our hearts and ears ready for worship and praise. Nobody Loves Me Like Jesus is a track that becomes our worship cry, especially in a time like this where […]
