Facing The Giants

All of us at one point or another face giants in our lives. Whether it be the giant of financial lack, the giant of fear, the giant of persecution, the giant of a goal we are reaching for we all face them - giants. Facing The Giants is one of the movies that we have in our library. It is an inspiring movie to watch. It gives you the sense of being able to win despite all odds.

The movie is set against the backdrop of football being played by high school students. The head coach is married with a desire for children and an old beat up clunker of a car. His assistant coaches are humorous and add an element of laughter to the movie. There is this older gentleman who is seen in the movie interceding for the students on a consistent basis and at the critical time is able to be there for the coach as the voice of God.

This movie is produced by the Sherwood Baptist Church and is of a quality that is comparable with movies made by secular producers. This movie moved me to tears at times and had me shouting Alleluia at other points. It is an inspiring movie to say the least. I am not a big sports or football fan but the movie had me glued to the screen and enjoying every bit of it. It is a must see and is family friendly. It increased my faith and gave me courage to face the giants in my life.

We like this movie so much that my hubby and I have looked at it more than once and showed it to the church as well. If you've never seen this movie you just have to get a copy to view on your family night or any night that suits you. Get together with friends, watch with your family, show it to your youth group. Whatever you do you just need watch it! It is available on for $11.99 and on Amazon
the price ranges from $4.50(used) to $7.99(new) . These prices are at the time of this post. Click any of the graphics or links in this post to purchase. You won't regret the purchase.
