“Never Leave Your Partner Behind,” a phrase that firefighters live by and a pharse that Sherwood Baptist Church would love for everyone to live by in their marriage. Sherwood Baptist Church has a movie ministry as part of their church. They have released three films, Flywheel, Facing the Giants and now, Fireproof. If you think you have the best marriage on the planet, or your marriage is struggling, or somewhere in between, or even if you are single, you should make a point to see this movie.
“Fireproof doesn’t mean that a fire will never come, but that when it comes you’ll be able to withstand it.” Lt. Michael Simmon, Fireproof

Big Monkey and I went to see the movie on opening night. We ended up running into many couples from our church and friends from another fire department. It was a great experience to be there all together and then get to talk about it some afterward. Go see it while you can…you will enjoy it.
