New giveaway! Now I'm giving away The Ultimate Journey by Jim Stovall!

To enter for a chance to win a copy of this novel, please answer the following question. Do you have a favorite Christian movie that came from a Christian novel that was written first? 

Now "Fireproof", "Facing the Giants", "Flywheel", "Faith Like Potatoes", and "Courageous" don't count as I believe they were created at the same time as the movies because there were novelinzations made of the movie. Make sense?

Here is my answer: Mine would have to be "September Dawn". I never read the book, but the movie was pretty powerful, plus it has one of my favorite actors in it, Trent Ford. So what about you? I will select a winner next Sunday using the Randomizer program.


About the book:


Jim Stovall has penned three delightful parables for anyone who wants to be inspired or give the gift of inspiration. In The Ultimate Gift, Jason Stevens learns to appreciate the value of his life, while in The Ultimate Life, he learns the value of love. Now, in the touching conclusion to the trilogy, Jason learns that life’s journey is all about traveling well—not about the destination.

In The Ultimate Journey, readers will discover the secrets of a successful life, including:
• Money helps pay for the trip, but should never be a destination …
• Friends make the journey worthwhile …
• Laughter lightens the load of any rough or rocky uphill road …
• Time may be allotted in small or large portions but the moment is what counts …
… and so much more.

Do you know how to make your life a success? The Ultimate Journey packs a powerful message for all ages.

My thoughts:

The description reads like a non-fiction book, but this story is fiction. Has anyone read the book or seen the DVD titled The Ultimate Gift? I saw the movie and it was pretty touching. Anyway, I haven't read this book but if it's half as good as the book the movie was based on then it has to be good.

I saw the Ultimate Gift, Michelle! Great movie.

My favorite movie, after reading the BOOK, was only released last month on September 2.

Back in May, I bought two cases of a book called "SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA" and gave them away to my mens group at church and in Business Men in Christ where am the president now. It is a christian fiction book, but the movie was outstanding! Robert Duvall is the actor. Trust me, sister it is not about golf, but LIFE. Here is a link to the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8zfHmWWybQ

Anyone, man or woman, who sees this and does not feel led to let Christ bury the past, has some issues!!
:-)
Thank you for allowing me to share this passion. The book was written by David Cook, who also did an amazing bible study book on it!!!
God bless you and yours, Michelle!!

I don't believe I have seen a Christian movie after reading the book first.

I would love the opportunity to read The Ultimate Journey.
