November Netflix Pick of the Month- My Dad’s a Soccer Mom #NetflixStreamTeam

I’m a member of the Netflix StreamTeam and opinions are my very own.

 

Hope everyone has recuperated from Thanksgiving dinner. I’m in the process of going through sweet potato pie withdrawal. Just one mo pie. One more.

Nope nine pies weren’t enough.

Anyhow, we had a wonderful time chilling with the family and watching movies. One of our faves was, ” My Dad’s A Soccer Mom.” I’ll admit I had my reservations in the beginning. Starting with the title. Now why does dad have to be a soccer mom? Why can’t he be a soccer dad? Huh? That’s exactly what he was, a soccer dad.

This movie was picked by my daughter Jala. She’s a fan of Skai Jackson and when she saw that she was in the movie, that was her pick. We actually watched the movie twice. Once with my daughter and the second time with the entire family.

Marion Casey (Lester Speight) plays  Lacy’s (Skai Jackson)dad and has recently lost his football contract. Holly Casey, is the wife of Marion and mother of Lacy and after her husband loses his contract she decides to put more time in her Interior Design business that she co owns with her sister.

In the meantime Marion gets a chance to spend more time with his daughter, Lacy and helps her find her passion of soccer.  This was an awesome movie and showed the growth of a relationship between a father a daughter.  Great movie to see over the holiday or the weekend with the family.

Excited To Be A Part of #NetflixStreamTeam for Another Year

I’m a member of the #NetflixStreamTeam and all post concerning Netflix are my own.

If my memory serves me correctly, this is my third year working with the Netflix Stream Team. Before blogging with them we were already Netflix fans. When we don’t go out to rent movies for family night, we scroll through the Netflix Movies and flip a coin take our pick.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Our first year with the Netflix Stream Team we dropped our cable.  That was freeing!  However, the following year I got tricked into signing back up because of a deal.  Let’s just say deals don’t last long.  The truth be told we still only turn on the television to watch movies with the family, hubby watches the games or when I’m into watching  Chick Flicks when I’m up having my ‘ Me Time’.

Well, this year in response to agreeing on another fabulous year with Netflix we received…

A BIG BOX!!!!!

Netflix Stream Team

LOL We actually received…

A Sharp Roku TV to enjoy watching our Netflix Movies along with all the other amenities.   Hubby will be setting it up today so I can begin enjoying some movies with the family and with him on our movie night.  Oh, and I received strict orders to not open the box until he came home :/

September Movie Pick: Catching Faith #Netflix #Streamteam

I’m a member of the Netflix Stream Team and the opinions shared in this article are my own.

Lately, I’ve been scrolling through the Faith & Spirituality category on Netflix, looking for something to watch. I’m not even halfway through the list of movie titles, but I have watched a few in this section.  The last movie I watched was Catching Faith. About a family, The Taylor’s that appear to have it all together. Married, stay at home mom with 2 1/2 kids…. How do you get a half a kids? LOL Anywho, everything looks perfect on the outside, but this christian family are in need of some spiritual growth. And with help from bible study, godly counsel, prayer and redirection, the Taylor family get back on spiritual track.

John & Alexa are the parents of twins.  Personally, John seems to be a great leader for his family.  Alexa appears to be going through a crisis that most of us moms seem to endure when we put our family priorities over our own spiritual and emotional needs.  One of the reasons this concerns me with, Alexa, is because I can definitely relate.  Being a mom we can get lost in the role of motherhood.  Lost and drowned out by the demands of pleasing others and not pleasing God.

Not only is Alexa dealing with her struggles, but her children are facing temptation.  Like every high school kid today, facing much temptation.  Some give in to temptation and others are able to escape it.  Catching Faith is a great movie for those of us looking to help build character and integrity in our children.  Great family movie for movie night.

Which category to do you enjoy watching movies from on Netflix?  Any favorites?

The Butler #Netflix #StreamTeam

I’m currently a member of the Netflix Stream Team and the opinions are my very own.

The month of July was another big movie month for us.  My husband and I watch a movie every Wednesday night if sleep doesn’t get us first.  So, we were on a roll this month.  One of my favorite movies out of the movies we watched was, The Butler.  Go ahead and stone me for being so late!  Go ahead!  Confession:  I don’t like watch many movies dealing with the oppression of my people.  It makes me cringe, sick to the stomach…. This doesn’t mean I’m ignorant of our past it just means I. don’t. like. watching it!

However, this was a really good movie.  The vivid transitional eras of oppression were seen and understood throughout this movie.  Although the racism may bring back the hurt and pain of our ancestors,  anyone with true love in their heart would only want to see reconciliation among all races.  Forest Whitaker & Oprah  played their roles well.

Have you seen The Butler?  If so, did you wait as long as I did to see it?

My obsession with prodigal son movies #NetflixStreamTeam

I’m a member of the #NetflixStreamTeam and the opinions in this post are 100% my own.

It’s evident that lately I’ve had an obsession with prodigal son stories. No, my son has not requested his inheritance and left home, so who knows what my obsession is with these movies. My husband and I have been having standing date nights on Wednesday and If I’m in control of picking the movie, a prodigal story it is.

One of my favorite’s for the month of June was, Confession of a Prodigal Son. So funny when the son asked for money to leave home, I couldn’t help but think of how much nerve he had to ask for the money. However, I’m sure many of us young and old feel like we’re obligated to receive something and when we do, we ruin it.  Just jack it all up!  All up.

Confession of a Prodigal son is the modern day story of the parable told by Jesus. I’d suggest this movie to watch with your teens and can lead to great discussion afterward. What types of movies have you been watching lately? Have you been stuck on a specific story line?
