When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

Belle

Okay, so I have never done this before, but I couldn't help myself...this movie was just way too, totally awesome...It is my new favorite movie:
 
Yes, it is a movie review: 
This movie was inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay, who is raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife.
Her family offers her great privileges, but  her statues prevents her from any traditional social standing. 
While her cousins searches for suitors, she is stuck wondering if she will ever find love, in the cruel world. 
This movie is my favorite and a must see!
