I’m not sure why some of these movies haven’t caught like wildfire, they’re really that good!

DISCLAIMER: I have personally watched each of these movies, however, they may not be suitable for all viewers. I am sharing them based upon my own convictions, but you should do your due diligence in seeking out if they will be suited to your family. You can refer to this post about _.

Love Comes Softly SERIES

This is my all time favorite series of all the faith and family movies. I absolutely love this whole series, and I know you will too. The whole series is comprised of 11 movies, set in the 19th century, about a woman who finds love again through the grace of God.

I haven’t been able to find the series on streaming, but you can find the movies on Amazon to purchase– and you’ll want to do that, I promise!

Facing the Giants

I’m always surprised when people tell me they haven’t seen this movie. Using faith to conquer fear, a coach tries to encourage his young football team to defeat their losing streak and come together for a winning season. You can rent it on Vudu or purchase on Amazon Prime.
