My focus here is to talk about relationships, healthy ones, ugly ones…how not to be involved in the ugly ones. Whether those ugly ones are abusive, toxic, with friends, family, coworkers, or the mailman.
I also focus on helping empower others to their full purpose, to know that they are worthy of healing and good things.
And once in awhile, when I can, I bring you a fun giveaway. So here goes…
Have you ever had an affirmation, Bible verse or even one word you wanted to remind yourself of often? Some people choose to tattoo such sayings, or others aren’t into tattoos, but still you’d like to somehow wear that affirmation as a reminder.
The new movie Gifted tells the story of 7-year-old Mary, a child prodigy being raised by her uncle after her mother (also a genius) took her life when Mary was an infant. Even though Mary (McKenna Grace of Designated Survivor) is a exceptionally gifted, Uncle Frank (Chris Evans of The Fantastic Four, The Avengers) believes his sister would want Mary to have a “normal” life and enrolls her in public school. When Frank’s formidable mother learns of Mary’s incredible mathematical abilities, she foils Frank’s desires for normalcy. What’s worse, her plans threaten to separate Mary and Frank.

Also starring in Gifted are Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures, The Shack, and The Help), Lindsay Duncan (Alice Through the Looking Glass), and Jenny Slate (Parks and Recreation) as Bonnie, Mary’s teacher, a young woman whose concern for her student also turns into a connection with Uncle Frank.
Gifted is rated PG-13 and opens in limited theatres on April 7th and nationwide, April 21st.
I’m excited to offer you a Gifted giveaway, perfect for the young student in your life. This film is a story of hope and healing. I like to – from time to time – offer you fun giveaways, and book and movie reviews, and I believe this may be a great film to present to you for consideration the next time you head to the theatre.
