I'm a strong advocator for helping couples to reconnect within their marriages. I want to see marriages last a lifetime. In our society today, it's extremely hard to make that happen without having a strong foundation within the marriage. When I saw a fellow blogger promoting the movie Extraordinary, I was quick to sign up to take part in promoting it as well. When Icon Media Group reached out to me about doing a review and hosting a giveaway for our readers, I quickly jumped at the opportunity.

An impactful and perfect story for the entire family, the inspirational film stars Shari Rigby (October Baby), Leland Klassen (Altar Egos), Karen Abercrombie (War Room) and Kirk Cameron (Fireproof) and follows Horton as his dream of tackling a nearly 3,000-mile run takes its toll on his body, and brings his marriage to the breaking point.
Based on a true marriage journey, Extraordinary tells the amazing story of ultra-marathon runner and college professor David Horton, his wife, Nancy, and their attempt to finish their marriage race well. Although proud of his incredible athletic accomplishments and the impact he has on his students, David’s family continuously pays a high price for his years of competitive running. Following his open-heart surgery and irreparable damage to his knees, Nancy is ready for Dave to hang up his racing shoes for good and focus his boundless energy on their family. Instead, feeling called by God to “inspire people one last time,” Dave sets off for a 2,900-mile race across America.

I was expecting a bit more from this movie than it gave me. With that being said though, there was a clear message that was shared throughout the movie. I feel like this movie showcased how putting God's desires ahead of our own can richly reward us as well as others along the way. It also provided an example of how sometimes marriages suffer as a result of taking that route. Sometimes we have to go through some pain to see the greater joy at the end of it.
I love how throughout this movie the wife was encouraged to support and respect her husband along the way. Once she transformed her mindset it helped her marriage to thrive. However, the husband got a lesson in appreciating all that he had with his wife and kids.
This movie seems to be based on the concept of wives needing love and husbands needing respect. The Love & Respect study set completely transformed my marriage. It required some growing pains, but it was well worth it!
There is a wonderful devotional that is available to download on the Extraordinary movie's website. It provides you with valuable devotionals to get your marriage onto the road to reconnection.
