Homeschool Movie Day- Dolphin Tale

Family / Friday, September 2nd, 2011

A good family movie is rare these days.  It seems there is always something objectionable from the moment we sit down and eat that first bite of popcorn.  The other night we went to have a family movie night and had to start three movies before we could watch one.  I am shocked by even what is allowed now in G rated movies.  I mean, when is the Lord’s name being taken in vain acceptable?!

That’s why when there is a good movie out there, I get excited.  I am so excited about Courageous coming out! I love all of the Kendrick Brother movies.
Facing the Giants and Fireproof are movies every family should see.

And now there is a movie coming out called Dolphin Tale.


Sally Clarkson’s (author of Educating the Whole Hearted Child and Seasons of a Mother’s Heart) son Nathan was a consultant for Dolphin Tale.  You can read more about his vision here.


From the I Take Joy website:

Calling all Families! Calling all Moms! Calling all Homeschoolers!

Join thousands of families nationwide to see the movie Dolphin Tale on September 23 together. It makes a statement to Hollywood to rally behind movies that “get it right” and tell great stories without all the junk, twaddle, and moral compromise! This movie has all the good stuff we want more of and is truly entertaining and inspiring from ages 5-95!!!

It’s time the conservative Christian Family and Homeschool community shows Hollywood we have a voice. But how? We need a story we can support and get behind, a story that affirms who we are and what we stand for.

Dear Friends, Dolphin Tale is such a story!

This is a family movie that will inspire, instruct, and bring you to tears because of the great story line. This movie even has two homeschool kids who play the main roles! (The casting agents went to a local support group in California and found them!)

The bottom line is that the Homeschool Movie Club wants to show Hollywood that the those of us with Christian and strong family values are a big enough market to support other great movies with traditional, conservative family values. I am hoping you will be a part of this great opportunity with me!


I am putting together a local homeschool field trip and can’t wait!  If you in my area, I would love to have you join us!
