I Can Only Imagine Movie – The Story Behind the Song In Theaters Soon

I have partnered with FlyBy Promotions for this feature

I Can Only Imagine Movie

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE Movie: In Theaters March 16, 2018

The film brings to life the true story behind the song of ultimate hope, “I Can Only Imagine.” A transformed relationship with his troubled father inspired Bart Millard, the lead singer of the Christian band MercyMe, to write what is now the most-played radio single in Christian music history.  The story beautifully illustrates that nobody is ever too far from God’s love —  or too far from an eternal home in Heaven.

9/11 The Movie Trailer and Prize Pack Giveaway

9/11 The Movie


Do you remember where you were on that frightful day that inspired this 9/11 The Movie ? I lived in Washington State and was driving to work. I was in a bit of a rush that morning so I had not turned on TV or even my radio in my car right away. As I drove down the highway I noticed a few cars pulled over. I wondered why some were pulled over in various spots-like off to the shoulder just sitting in their cars. It wasn’t eerie until I look over and one man has a look of shock in his eyes and his hand is over his mouth like he just got the worst news. He turned as I slowed and looked right at me is why I remember the look in his face.


What was I listening to? 

I turned the radio on to our news station and the first thing I heard was “…oh no! oh no! oh my…” that was it so of course I am very curious and tad nervous. Then I hear “…another (another plane has flown into the second tower. What is happening?…” I was real worried now-what tower? And why is he saying “another plane”. So I pulled into work and was about to shut off my car when I hear the DJ say “If you are just tuning in and have not heard what is happening in NYC right now…” I remember staying in my car numb for quite a while absorbing all the details. I finally got out and started walking when I heard very loud rumbling. We live near Whidbey Island and a few other military bases and the sky is being patrolled, I imagined in the wake of planes hijacked everywhere and unknown threats in the air.


Educating my son 

In July I took my 9 year old to NYC for our first time ever for a blog conference. We did take time to visit the 9/11 memorial and he was enlightened into that tragic day. On the fountain wall are names of victims and if it is their birthday that particular day there is a rose at their name. Someone put a fresh rose every day to honor victims birthdays from 9/11 as well as the World Trade Bombing. He wanted to find them all and stop at each one. Whether you witnessed that day or are 9 years old and learned about it at a tribute memorial, you don’t forget! Now we have a tribute, 9/11 The Movie is in theaters.

About 9/11 The Movie

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman(The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).

In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.

Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later … their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.

With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.
