Old Fashioned the DVD is about former frat boy Clay Walsh and Amber Hewson. Clay was a former frat boy with some wild ways but he later gives up his reckless life and begins to run an antique shop in a small town. There he was known for his “strange” theories on love, romance, and his beliefs. Amber is a free-spirited young woman who lives a restless life moving from place to place once her “jar” is full. She ends up renting the apartment above Clay’s shop where she eventually finds herself drawn to his chivalry and beliefs.
I was blessed with the opportunity to view this movie in theaters ahead of its original release. I was blown away by the plot, the story line and the production. I felt the movie was just wonderful! This is something I really want to pass down to my kids, especially having all boys. I want them to understand that chivalry doesn’t have to be a lost art and that it is truly what being a gentleman and being a Christian young man is all about.
Let’s face it, today it seems to be a “hook-up” culture where commitment isn’t even considered. Too many young people don’t want that commitment before the physical interaction. Treating a woman with respect and dignity is something that all young men need to learn.
This movie was a good, clean family friendly movie. You won’t have to worry about vulgarity or cursing. I really enjoyed watching this movie a second time on DVD within the comforts of my home.
The movie is based on the novel written by Rene Gutterudge. The book is wonderful and doesn’t read like a screenplay! It goes without saying, the book contains more story than what can be fit into movie! Have I ever mentioned my fondness for books on my blog page?
I was overly excited to receive the devotional! Being considered old-fashioned doesn’t mean that you’re dull and unromantic. The truth is that true old-fashioned romance is sometimes more exciting than anything we have ever experienced. So what does it mean to have an old-fashioned romance? Does this type of romance go deeper than just holding doors for women and holding hands in pubic? Yes! In this devotional you will learn how to reclaim the lost art of an old-fashioned romance by introducing you to what God intended romance to be for all of us! This is a 40 day journey that is full of inspired readings and questions for reflection. It doesn’t matter where you are in your romantic life, it is never too late to start!
I love how this book includes examples of dating and courting traditions.
With all the hype surrounding 50 Shades of Grey, why not learn what romance is really intended to be and learn what God would like to see romantically? Also, this would be a wonderful set to have to share with your teens and those who are getting close to courting age—even if they are not already courting. It gives them a chance to see how God really does care about all aspects of our life, especially romance. We should be seeking to serve Him, not the world like 50 Shades insists. It also demonstrates to us how to keep our hearts and relationships pure.
