Like Arrows Debut

I am SO excited about this movie! Alex and Stephen Kendrick have produced another amazing movie (also produced War Room and Courageous), this one in particular will only debut in specific theaters nationwide for TWO nights next month! Check for showtimes and tickets HERE.

You’ll follow the journey of Charlie and Alice into parenthood, when they start to lose those special relationships with their children because of life (i.e. work, everyday life) getting in the way, they turn to their faith when everything else has failed.

I think this is going to be a fantastic film to watch with our spouses and to show at church with small groups for bible study. This film is part of a new parenting initiative called FamilyLife’s Art of Parenting™ – they will provide a free online video series with a 8-session small group series! This could even be perfect for a MOPs or Mom’s group meeting study!

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this new movie! Let me know what you think in the comment section below!

Paul, Apostle of Christ Film

I am SO excited to go see this movie! If you haven’t seen the trailer, you can view it below!

This movie is about Paul, you follow his story from when Luke risks his life to visit him in a Roman prison under Nero’s rule. During this time Paul writes many letters that were absolutely vital to spreading Christianity and you can find those in the New Testament today. Despite everything Paul faced he continued to share the Jesus’ message of love, redemption and forgiveness.

The creators of this movie strived to remain accurate to what the bible reads, they used scripture as reference. This film is rated PG-13 (there is some violent content and disturbing images) and will be available in theaters nationwide this Friday, March 23!

As you can see from the trailer above, this film is visually stunning. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to watch such an amazing film! You can learn more about the film HERE on their website, there you will find packets for guided discussions and leader packs as well as some other fun downloads. HERE you can find out where the movie is playing in your area as well as purchase your tickets in advance! Something really neat is that on their site you can listen to the different letters that Paul wrote, you can find those HERE.

If you have the opportunity to go see this movie let me know what you think of it in the comment section below! I can’t wait to share what I think!

Paradise Praises – Bible Activities Review

I am so excited to share this review with you guys today! One of the things that drives me crazy is searching for extra worksheets to give Boogie for busy work when we are studying something in particular and I need to give her something to do while the littles need my attention.This book completely solves that problem for our Bible studies!

I love love love this book! My only complaint is that it would be easier to make copies of in a spiral bound book or even a loose leaf binder or perhaps a book with easy pull out pages. I’ll probably tear this apart and put it in a binder for easier copying for my kids.

As you can see in the above image, there are a ton of worksheets and coloring pages to choose from! Some are above my children’s levels just yet, but we are already utilizing some of them! For instance, as I will state in my video (hopefully I’ll have that posted tonight), we are learning the books of the Old Testament…. first worksheet in this book is a word search containing the Old Testament books! Boogie LOVED it! It kept her busy while I did some other work with Bubby and Bird. I’m excited to utilize this book some more and I’m even more excited to see if the creator, Katie Hornor, comes out with more books like this!

You can find out more about Katie at ParadisePraises.com or purchase your own copy at Amazon HERE! Be sure to check out Paradise Praises, there are some awesome posts and other resources there for everyone, not just homeschoolers!

I received a free copy of this activity book in return for a review. All opinions and statements are my own, a positive review was not required. Affiliate links are included in this post, any money made goes back into this blog! Thank you for visiting Mustard Seed Mommy!

The Star Movie

Have you had a chance to see the movie, The Star yet? We are watching it Friday night for our family movie night! I’m so excited to share this sweet movie with my children.


The Star is a heartwarming tale about a donkey named Bo, he goes on a grand adventure and meets many quirky animals along the way. The greatest adventure of all was when he accidentally becomes a hero in one of the most amazing stories ever told! So many amazing actors and actresses voice the characters in this movie, including Tyler Perry, Gina Rodriguez, Kelly Clarkson, Oprah Winfrey, Kristin Chenoweth and many more!

I love that we can share the story of Jesus’s birth with our children through a fun animated movie like this. It’s full of fun music, silly animals and most importantly… one of the greatest stories ever told.

There are some great bonus materials included with the DVD (which is NOW available to purchase, click any image in this post to find out how). There is a sing-along with Bo and his friends, a dance-along to “Life Is Good”, lyric sing-alongs with five of the songs from the movie (including “The Star” by Mariah Carey). You’ll also fine instructions for Sweet and Sparkly Star cookies, a craft activity to make star mason jar votives… and the list goes on!

You will even find a children’s sermon discussing The Star and how you can keep the story of Jesus’s birth alive in our hearts EVERY day. What’s REALLY neat is that we have been provided with a family friendly weekly bible study by DeVon Franklin, just click the image below to head to the Facebook page post from The Star Movie to find out how to download it today!

It’s a fun interactive way for your kids to learn more, try it out! I will share my thoughts on the movie in a future blog post after we watch it this weekend. I have no doubt that it will be a movie we love to watch for years to come! Buy your copy soon, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this movie as well! God Bless!
