Pure Flix's "A Thousand Tomorrows" episode 3

Many thanks to Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own. 

Growing up, I don't remember hearing much about the illness cystic fibrosis. When my husband started his post-secondary education, there was a married couple at church that would randomly not show up for long periods of time. We later learned that the wife has cystic fibrosis. Whenever cold season got bad, or any illness started spreading, they would avoid crowds. Sometimes they would sneak into church and sit at the back so they could avoid interacting or getting to close to others. They were very open about how they handled her illness, and we loved getting to know them better. Over the past few years, movies like "Five Feet Apart" have helped to spread awareness and understanding of cystic fibrosis and how it affects the individuals who have it, and their loved ones. 

A Thousand Tomorrows

In the new series "A Thousand Tomorrows" on Pure Flix, the female lead character Ali struggles with cystic fibrosis. In episode 3, Ali and Cody (the male lead) start to form a friendship. They are able to use their pasts to help each other find strength. Their individual pasts seem to link them together in an unpredictable way considering how different their pasts are. 

The show is based in Oklahoma, so it has a very country, friendly feel to it. The accents are thick at times, and the denim is ever-present. From episode 3, the viewer can see where this relationship might be headed. It is a show about redemption, forgiveness, devotion and transformation. Cody and Ali find a love so rare and powerful, and they make the most of everyday they have with each other. 

I love the episodic format because I can watch one episode and not feel like my whole day is gone. If you love horses, and especially horse riding/racing, definitely check this show out. Episode 3 releases on March 3!

Pure Flix's "Heaven Sent" Review

 Many thanks to Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Have you ever known someone that you loved deeply, and watched as their heart was broken. Maybe a grandparent who lost their spouse, or someone who got divorced. It is part of humanity to crave connection and love, and when we see someone who has lost that connection, it's natural to want them to be able to find love again. Many times, it's hard to resist trying to be a matchmaker in an effort to find that perfect someone for your loved one. 

Pure Flix just released a movie about love after loss. Many of the themes are relatable because love and loss are so prevalent. Other themes throughout this movie are comedy, friendship and hope. Christmas may be over, which means fewer "feel-good" movies, but that doesn't stop Pure Flix. They are constantly releasing new shows. 

From the very beginning, the character Elise, felt so relatable. She comes across as the grandma anyone would love to have. Her grandson is a goofball who the viewer can't help loving. And their journey together is one of growth. 

Starring Karen Abercrombie (who plays Elise) and Charlene Tilton, "Heaven Sent" is a movie that the whole family can watch. As always, as a Pure Flix film it is clean, and wholesome. Watch the trailer here, or go log in to Pure Flix and watch the whole movie!
