Hey Ladies

Has anyone else seen this? http://www.amazon.com/Soulmate-Michelle-McKinney-Hammond-Shepherd/dp/B000M7G0FK

I own this dvd and I watch it all the time. I find it to be very encouraging . . . just wondering if anyone else has seen it? (You can see a preview here: http://www.soulmatefilm.com/thetrailer.htm

I highly recommend it!

(And no, I'm not related to the film's makers . . . and I'm not getting a cut of the profits. :lol: Just wanna share!)

Here's my thread on the film BEFORE I saw it....

After I saw it, here's what I said:

...it's not what you think it is... it's even better!!!

I went prepared to leave the screening with a gaping hole in my heart due to all of the lamenting I expected to hear from the women in the film. It was the most HONEST examination of the struggles of single Black women in the church/Christ with regard to marriage after a certain age. I can't articulate everything just yet because I'm so emotionally drained yet I'm grateful on so many levels.

After the screening, we were able to dialogue about the content and I was able to express some things out loud that I had not been able to express before. Everyone was so encouraging and the comfort of the Holy Spirit was in the place. I left there being reminded that God is good, sovereign, knows all about me and my desires and struggles, and that He's SPARED ME FROM SOOOOO MUCH!!! SO MUCH! SO grateful for what He has spared me from.... and I need to fully give this desire over to Him. I knew this is what I needed to do but I didn't know how...I have to start somewhere, though....start on my knees....

I commend the producer Andrea Wiley because she approached this from a sincere, God-inspired place in her heart.

I hope that you all get a chance to see it. I would like to share it with everyone I know (including those who are married) so that there is a deeper understanding of what's going on....

God bless you all....

I saw this preview before and it looks quite interesting. So as not to take over the thread I will post a question elsewhere.
