Friendly Persuasion

This is one of our absolute favorite family films. It's even achieved the distinguished honor of being a Sunday approved movie. The only other movies the girls are allowed to watch are church produced. If you haven't seen it please find a copy and gather the whole family around. It is great!

The Birdwell family are Quakers living in Indiana during the Civil War. The family struggles on how true they will stand to their Quaker convictions about music, the war, and even other forms of violence. :-D You'll see what I mean when you watch!

That is one that both I and my mother really like.....I think my favorite part is when she 'wacks' the soldier trying to go after her 'pure pet' goose.....and then the look on her face when her husband 'teases' her about it! What a great family film!!!
