The Power of Inspiration: Queen of Katwe

I found many beautiful things to love about this film. Based on a true story, not only does it take its viewer on a journey to Uganda and the realities of many families struggling to survive, but it showcases the strength of the human spirit. Solid determination shines like gold all throughout this story. It’s on vibrant display in Phiona’s concentration on the chessboard, her mother’s constant battle to support her family and even the pastor’s courage to push for opportunities for the village children.

Of Gods and Vows

This book was read in a breath—a sharp inhale, holding it in as the pages turned, followed by a long exhale.

Shadow Girl brings a Strong Female Lead

Afton Tangler is the Family Liaison Officer of the Minneapolis Police Department.  Her job is to be bridge between victims of crimes and the police force during the investigation. However, Tangler has bigger and better goals in mind: to be a detective on the police force. Her partner in not-quite crime, Max Montgomery, encourages this goal regularly.  He bends the rules and takes Tangler to investigations alongside him. This is much to the chagrin of the chief of police.

Seriously Pope Francis is in this film!
