U.S. Release Date:                    June 19, 2015

Director:                                   Pete Docter

Co-Director:                              Ronnie del Carmen

Producer:                                  Jonas Rivera

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Notes:

·       Director Pete Docter is the Academy Award®-winning director of “Up.” He made his directorial debut with Disney•Pixar‘s smash hit “Monsters, Inc.,” which was nominated for an Academy Award for best animated feature film. Along with John Lasseter and Andrew Stanton, Docter developed the story and characters for “Toy Story,” Pixar‘s first full-length feature film, for which he also served as supervising animator. He served as a storyboard artist on “A Bug’s Life” and wrote the initial story treatment for “Toy Story 2.” As one of Pixar Animation Studios’ key creative contributors, Docter garnered an Academy Award nomination for his original story credit on Disney•Pixar’s Golden Globe®- and Oscar®-winning “WALL•E.”

·       Jonas Rivera produced the Academy Award®-winning “Up,” for which he was nominated for best picture. Prior to “Up,” he had worked on nearly every Pixar film since joining Pixar Animation Studios in 1994, beginning with “Toy Story” for which he served as production office assistant. His subsequent credits include “A Bug’s Life” (as art department coordinator), “Toy Story 2” (as a marketing and creative resources coordinator), “Monsters, Inc.” (as art department manager) and the Golden Globe®-winning “Cars” (as production manager).

About The Movie

Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” directed by Independent Spirit Award-winner Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl,” “Cedar Rapids,” “Youth in Revolt”) from a screenplay by Rob Lieber, is a 21 Laps Entertainment/Jim Henson Company production. The film hits theaters nationwide Oct. 10, 2014.

Before Amen Giveaway

before amen #giveaway

Here’s an inspirational giveaway for you! I love the writings of Max Lucado. I’ve read many of his books. I’m really excited to start this one and the CD sounds awesome! Read on to find out more.

About Before Amen:

We all pray . . . some.

We pray to stay sober, centered, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out before the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray.

But wouldn’t we like to pray more? Better? Stronger? With more fire, faith, and fervency?

Yet we have kids to feed, bills to pay, deadlines to meet. The calendar pounces on our good intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered history with prayer? Uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests.

There is also a new Before Amen album…it’s a companion to the new “Before Amen” book that Max Lucado is releasing.  The album includes a variety of artists – from Rend Collective to Michael W. Smith and 3 new songs from Darlene Zschech, Planetshakers and Paul Baloche. You can read the press release here.

We’re giving the Before Amen prize pack to one lucky winner! Just enter on the Rafflecopter below.

My Day was Brightened with Fairy Dust

fairy dust quote My Day was Brightened with Fairy Dust #Disney #BigHero6Event #ABCTVEvent black-ish Dancing with the Stars Galavant Big Hero 6

 

I try to see the positive in everything and make the best of every day. Some days that is an easier task than other days.  Monday was one of those days.  Every day checking my email is a job in itself.  I literally receive 100’s of emails a day. Most of the time it’s junk mail or facebook notifications. Yes, I know I could turn that off but I haven’t.  Monday is a busier day than normal for email and I was so excited to find a magical email.  Yes, my email inbox had been sprinkled with Fairy Dust!

The subject of this magical message read: “Disney & ABC Invite You to Los Angeles!”

My heart literally skipped a beat! Disney is one of my favorite places and I’ve been blessed with a Disney trip before. It’s magical and exciting.  I can hardly wait!  My trip will be taking place Nov 2nd through the 5th.  I’d love to share with you all the excitement that it entails.

BigHeroEvent My Day was Brightened with Fairy Dust #Disney #BigHero6Event #ABCTVEvent black-ish Dancing with the Stars Galavant Big Hero 6

I am a bit obsessed with super heroes.  I may or may not have my very own SHIELD briefcase complete with Marvel movies and my own Tesseract (I do, I totally do!).  When I first learned about Big Hero 6 I knew I had to see it and couldn’t wait for it to come out!  Check out the trailer:

Doesn’t that look adorable?!  Okay, here’s the exciting news! I get to walk the red carpet at the BIG HERO 6 premiere! I will also be attending a special press day at Walt Disney Animation Studios where I will be interviewing the filmmakers, attending a drawing demonstration with animators, and I will also get a chance to voice a character from the film in a recording booth!  Growing up my dream was to be a cartoon character! I am beyond stoked! 

But wait, there’s more!

I will be attending a live taping of “Dancing with the Stars“!  Then, during dinner I will be live tweeting with a special guest (or two!).  I have no idea who that will be, but as soon as I do you know I’ll share with you!

Have you watched the new show on ABC called black-ish?  It is hilarious! I’ll be visiting the Walt Disney Studio Lot for special preview screenings of episodes of ABC shows, like the new hit comedy “black-ish” which also shoots on the Disney lot. That means there may possibly be a set tour!!

Releasing internationally Oct. 6 through Integrity Music is Before Amen: A Worship Collection, the musical companion to the book from New York Times bestselling author and pastor Max Lucado, Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer (Thomas Nelson, October 2014). Written for everyone who wants to pray more, better and stronger, with more fire, faith and fervency, the album offers songs that that were chosen to complement the book, providing a musical backdrop for prayer and personal devotion.

The 13-track recording features inspirational, spoken word messages from Max Lucado and songs recorded by All Sons & DaughtersMichael W. Smith, Kari Jobe, John Mark McMillan, Brian Doerksen, Kathryn Scott and Soul Survivor, as well as brand new songs from worship leaders Paul and Rita Baloche, Planetshakers and Darlene Zschech.

Zschech’s song for the project, “My Highest Hope,” is a powerful declaration and reminder of the hope everyone has in Jesus.  Written by Zschech as she recovers from cancer, the chorus rings out:

Pray to the Risen One

My highest Hope

I trust You with my life

Lord over every fear

Your love is holding me

“Prayer is essential to every Christian’s walk with God,” says Zschech.  “You simply cannot have a relationship without communication and, as Max explains in Before Amen, that’s what prayer is… our simple, honest conversation with our Heavenly Father. I’m excited for the message behind the book Before Amen and honored to share a song for the Before Amen album.”

Paul and Rita Baloche’s new song, “Father You Are Good,” sung by Rita, features lyrics from Jesus’ most famous prayer that resonates on the lips of worshippers around the world:

Our Father in Heaven hallowed be Thy name

Thy kingdom come Thy will be done

In Heaven and Earth the same

Hallowed be Thy name Hallowed be Thy name

Before Amen: A Worship Collection also features Michael W. Smith’s “Lord Have Mercy,” McMillan’s “How He Loves,” All Sons & Daughters’ “All The Poor And Powerless” and Kari Jobe’s “Healer,” as well as the new song “Abba Father” from Planetshakers.

About Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer:

Lucado cites in his new book that every week, more people will pray than will exercise, go to work, or have sex. But when it comes to praying, many don’t know where to begin.

Lucado believes that a vibrant prayer life does not mean your prayers are better or more eloquent than others. Quite the opposite. Lucado says humility combined with confidence provides a God-given prayer strength. Writes Lucado: “Since you matter to God, your prayers matter in heaven. You’re never without hope because you are never without prayer.”

Lucado sprinkles Before Amen with powerful stories of powerful prayers. He also writes about some of his own doubts about prayer, sharing how to overcome disappointment from unanswered prayers and be confident that God hears. Before Amen will allow readers to calm the chaos of life by embracing a prayer life that brings peace and rest.

Wishing Will – Another Fantastic Read by Daniel Harvell

Wishing Will Book Cover Wishing Will - Another Fantastic Read by Daniel Harvell book #review

About a year ago I shared with you how much I enjoyed The Survivors by Daniel Harvell.  I was so excited to get the opportunity to read his newest book, Wishing Will. It was a great read. It may be about a middle schooler, but as an adult I really enjoyed reading it. I love the way that Harvell develops his characters.  There were some surprises and twists in the story line that I never saw coming. I really enjoy reading a book where I can’t figure out everything.

Outcast middle schooler Will Cricket wants a new look, popular friends, cool parents and enough coordination to dribble a basketball – but he never actively pursues any of it. Instead, Will makes wishes. When the magical wishing corporation known as the Sky Castle Network and Enterprises (a.k.a. the SCENE) agrees to grant him his ultimate wish to be someone different, he must work for his reward. Becoming a super-powered agent for the organization, Will teams up with a celestial wish agent with delusions of Hollywood stardom, a shape-changing half-Genie, a narcoleptic Dreamweaver and a stick-in-the-mud wish lawyer. Together, they grant the wishes of Will’s classmates and family members, helping the same people who pick on Will every day. As if these challenges weren’t enough, there’s a mystery surrounding his peculiar grandmother and a malevolent force bent on enslaving humanity. Will might have to fight not only for his wish but also for the entire world!

I found that it held my interest and was a great read.  I recommend it for both adults and young adults.
