I finally had an opportunity to watch the movie, Ring the Bell.  Things have been incredibly busy around here that I just didn't have a chance.  But now that I've seen it, I wish I would have had time to watch it sooner!  It is another great movie by Provident Films, the same group that brought us CourageousFireproofFacing the Giants, and many more.

About Ring the Bell:
Ring The Bell shares the story of a slick, big city sports agent Rob Decker who seems to have it all. But on his latest mission to sign a high school baseball superstar, Rob becomes stranded in a small town where the simplicity of life—and the faith of the people—stand in stark contrast to his own fast-paced, win-at-all-costs mindset. Torn between these two worlds, will Rob have the courage to let faith transform his life? This heartwarming story of redemption is sure to entertain and inspire the whole family.

Ring The Bell features a host of well-known Christian music artists, such as Mark Hall along with his band Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Matthew West, all who play a role in this inspirational drama. Several former and current Major League Baseball all-stars are also featured in the film: ESPN analysts John Kruk and Rick Sutcliffe (a former Cy Young Award winner), along with Ben Zobrist.

This family-friendly movie was produced by Mark Miller, Beach Street Records' founder and Casting Crowns’ producer. Miller, who is also the lead singer and founder of country music group Sawyer Brown, co-wrote the script with Thomas Weber and Weber directed the production. 

Wow!  What a great group of people to come together to make this moving, inspirational movie!  I absolutely LOVE Casting Crowns and their music!  And I really enjoyed this movie.  I can't wait to watch it with the whole family!

Ring the Bell is available on DVD for only $19.99. However, you have a chance to win your own copy right here!  Just leave a comment telling me your favorite musical artist.  I am currently loving some TobyMac, Casting Crowns, Jeremy Camp, and Third Day music.  

Let me know who you love listening to by Thursday, May 9.  I will randomly pick a winner on Friday, May 10, and announce it here on the blog.

Extended!!!  Last day to enter is Monday, May 13.  I will randomly pick a winner on Tuesday, May 14, and announce it here on the blog.

I really love Matt Hammitt -- the album is entitled "Every Falling Tear". Such beautiful songs that I can really relate to and encourages me in my faith.
