Online Movie Discussion Club
I picked these movies because they all depict marriages. The movies can be found on Amazon for purchase or rent, or often at your local public library as DVDs. A few are free on YouTube, like the one about the Osmonds below, and some are on YouTube to rent. We will discuss the marriage featured in each movie and decide if it is a “Grand Marriage” as described by Ramona Zabriskie in her book Wife for Life. You can buy the book here. Don’t worry if you don’t have the book yet, or haven’t read it yet, just get it when you can. In the meantime you can go to Ramona’s website and sign up for her free webinars to get a glimpse of the principles she teaches.
So please get the book Wife for Life and read it as soon as you can. It will help you know what principles to catch and ponder when you watch the movies. When we see the principles in action we are more likely to apply them. Then come to the discussion with at least one question or comment based on one of the principles from the Wife for Life book like the 10 As of Attraction. If you don’t have the book yet you can still come and discuss, because you can watch Ramona’s webinar and get the 10 A’s Laws of Attraction.
