I am hosting a giveaway for the Old Fashioned Movie, Book, and Devotional. I reviewed the Old Fashioned Movie DVD previously, and if you'd like to read it, you can go here. By the way, I gave it a very positive review.
After watching the Old Fashioned movie with my teenage daughter, she read the Old Fashioned Book. She spends several hours a day reading in the summer, so I knew she would finish it in no time at all. The novelization is softcover and is 303 pages. Here is the info. I received about the book: "Turning his back on his reckless lifestyle, former frat boy Clay Walsh has settled down to turn an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town....and to purse lofty and outdated theories on love and romance. But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can't help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Amber also finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay, but his ideas about relationships are unusual to say the least, and they bring to light her own deep wounds and fears about love. They say opposites attract, but can Clay and Amber move beyond their differences and their pasts to attempt an "old fashioned" courtship?"
My daughter enjoyed the book even more than she enjoyed the movie. Every time she was reading it, she had a lot of new facts to tell me. She would ask me if I remembered a scene in the book and then she would tell me a lot more details about it, from what she read in the book. She was a little disappointed that they couldn't fit all those details into the movie.
I have been reading the Old Fashioned Devotional. I am on day 14 and there are 40 days. It is softcover and 222 pages. Here is the info. I was given about the devotional: "Contrary to popular opinion, being "old fashioned" doesn't mean you're dull or unromantic. In fact, a true old fashioned relationship can be more exciting and romantic than anything you've ever experienced! So what does it mean to do things the old fashioned way? Sure, it means opening doors, holding out chairs, and taking things slow. But a true old fashioned romance goes much, much deeper than that. Inspired by the motion picture Old Fashioned, this book will show you how to reclaim the lost art of romance by introducing you to romantic love as God intended it. Regardless of your past mistakes, where you've been, what you've done, or where you are now, you can find and create a love that will last a lifetime! As you work your way through this forty-day journey of inspiring readings and questions for reflection, you'll discover all the unique and amazing benefits of doing things the old fashioned way. And before you know it, you'll be well on your way to creating a love story for the ages."
The Devotional is a good way to continue the conversation from the movie. It starts with talking about how we treat others. The typical day is a quote from the book, a story example and some advice, application questions, and prayer. Here are some things I've liked about it so far: on Day 5, it talks about how the other person can't be our everything, only God can. ON Day 9, it talks about how we need to be treated with respect and honor because we were made in God's image. On Day 10, it talks about how we should treat others with dignity because they are loved by God. On Day 12, it talks about how we need to have our boundaries in place before we find ourselves in a tough situation. I think this would be good for an older teenager or young adult to read before they enter the dating scene.
