Looking for family faith based movies to watch with your family?  Then, head on over to Bridgestone Multimedia Group and browse their wonderful selection here -- My family has been enjoying their movies for a while, and I especially their animated children's movies.

Here are some recent releases to consider come movie night --

Jacob on the Road
Buy now for only $12.98


"On a class trip to the museum, Jacob and his adventurous friends sneak away and encounter a group of monkey mannequins in a showcase. There, Jacob is entranced by the mysterious monkey world and the debate surrounding Creation versus evolution. Along the way, Jacob meets Jay, a museum security guard who doubles as a guide for wandering children in the world of the mischievous monkeys. Now it's up to Jay to help Jacob find a safe way out of the crazy mess.

A fun-filled tale of mystery and mayhem in a museum, Jacob on the Road debunks evolutionary theory with a faith-based message, vibrant animation, and catchy songs that captivate children while teaching them about God's creation"

Slow Fade
 Buy now for only $19.95


"Wrapped up in worldly influences, Thomas is a rebellious young man whose life has sunken deep into self-destructive behavior. When his lifestyle begins to damage his relationships with his mom and girlfriend, he loses control, but not before meeting an unlikely mentor who shows Thomas a new path to making the right choices.

Featuring the single "I Need You" by the Christian band Oh Horizon, Slow Fade is an inspiring drama about growing up, finding faith, and facing decisions that affect our actions, thoughts, and identities."

 Genesis 7 - Episode Ten: Blue Neptune
Buy now for only $14.95


"Priscilla struggles to grasp the truth of God's love and the beauty of Blue Neptune as the Genesis 7 crew sets a record for the farthest space mission and a trajectory for the planet's largest moon, Triton. As the daring Donton drills into the frozen wasteland for a sample of the unstable surface, a sudden fissure sends the LG7 careening into a snowbank. Enoch space walks a cable to the lander for yet another rescue, the series of which Donton likens to "a never-ending game of cosmic dodgeball."

Back at Genesis Command, Lt. Jennings learns the identity of a mole trying to sabotage the mission. She reassures the crew before relaying that their next destination is the Kuiper belt to recover the ancient Voyager 2 spacecraft. "It's a long way to the other side of the solar system," declares Enoch as the craft departs."

Buy now for only $19.95


"Based on the bestselling novel by Robert Whitlow, Jimmy is a heartfelt family drama about a mentally challenged teenager (Ian Colletti) who sees beings no one else can. Jimmy doesn't always understand what he sees and hears, but he remembers it all with uncanny accuracy, which is why his lawyer father asks him to testify in a crucial trial. Jimmy's testimony saves the man from jail but has far-reaching consequences for himself, the people he loves, and their community.

Filled with quirky Southern characters who feel familiar but surprise us, the cast includes Ted Levine (Monk), Kelly Carlson (Everwood), Gregory Alan Williams (Remember the Titans), and Bob Gunton (The Shawshank Redemption). Jimmy has also been awarded the Dove Foundation's highest honor of five doves for viewers 12 and older."


All of the above movies have been Dove-approved, so you will be confident in knowing that these and other Bridgestone Multimedia Group titles will be great to watch with your family.  What I like most about these movies is that it opens up a line of communication between parent and child, and lets you talk opening about your faith, questions your children may have, as well as about the lessons learned from each movie.  I find myself reaching for tissues as many of the movies will pull at your heartstrings.  At the end of each movie, I don't feel like I wasted my time watching an "OK" movie. Instead, I am usually moved or feel inspired, which I love.
