Win It! Watch Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters on Pure Flix starting August 1st! #StrongFathersMIN #MomentumInfluencerNetwork

It's that time again! Time to share a sneak peak about the an upcoming show on Pure Flix! As I've shared before with our readers as an ambassador for this Christian streaming service, it's the number one place to find quality Christian television shows and movies that you'll enjoy watching with your whole family. You'll find both adult series' to children's programming, including the super popular kids show, Veggie Tales. Pure Flix offers something for everyone, with themes of courage, forgiveness and faith. 

This week, I've had the privilege to preview "Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters, a Pure Flix original film with a phenomenal cast. It's based on the New York Times Bestselling book written by Dr. Meg Meeker. The film airs on Pure Flix streaming service on August 1, 2022.


"When a wealthy businessman learns his daughter is engaged to a missionary, he embarks on a quest to keep her closer to home. But when his efforts go awry, he must learn to give up control and trust God with her future. Steve loves all three of his daughters – but does he really know who they are? Discover the heartfelt journey of a dad who is desperately trying to hold onto his little girls but learns he must give up control and trust God with their future."

My Thoughts
We love this as a family-friendly film to watch with daughters. It features Bart Johnson & Robin Lively and Maria CanalsBarrera & David Barrera, who are real-life married couples. There aren't enough films that focus on the important relationships between fathers and their daughters. It's heart-warming to find such a well-done movie with a strong message. Fathers will definitely relate to the tough navigation of Steve's relationship with his daughters as they grow.
