Blind Side

The Blind SideDrew and I got The Blind Side from Netflicks last week.  We were able to watch it on Sunday evening.  Boy, oh boy did I ever love it!

It got me to thinking.  I didn't find the woman in the story to be terribly religious.  They never talked about her going to church or talking about God.  She just made a good decision and then kept acting upon that with more good decisions.

I think that sometimes, as members of the LDS faith we're so caught-up in the Sunday School answers of reading our scriptures and going to church that we forget how important it is to show compassion for all of God's children.  In fact, I think this is something I need to work more on.  I suppose the hope of reading my scriptures and going to church is that I will be willing to listen to the spirit when it tells me to help someone out.  I have real issues with people who can spout every scripture story in detail along with biblical historical references, but don't spend time with their families or in the community.

Anyway, it's for me.  Learning to help others out regardless of status or what I think they deserve.  Thanks Sandra Bullock for making me think (and frankly, these days you do have to make me think).  I really do {heart} my netflicks.

  1. OH my heck, I loved this movie as well!! I seriously could watch it over and over. I also completely agree with you on this post. Living it the best we can is so important.

  2. Loved this movie.

    I read an article in Reader's Digest a few years ago about the story. I think it mentioned they were devout Christians, but don't quote me on that.

    Amazing story and so inspiring.

  3. Wasn't that just the best movie? And I kept thinking throughout that movie that I would have never pulled the car over that night let alone asked that boy to move into my house. I have so much work to do as a person!
