Saints and Soldiers: The Void

I haven't had a chance to see this one yet, but I'm a big fan of clean movies and entertainment. Go check it out if you get a chance! 

SAINTS & SOLDIERS: THE VOID
HOLDS ALL THEATRES AND EXPANDS ON AUGUST 29


Salt Lake City – Go Films announced today that due to the success of SAINTS & SOLDIERS: THE VOID’s opening weekend, the film will remain in all its opening weekend theatres and open in additional theatres on Friday, August 29. The film is currently playing in all Megaplex theatres throughout Utah and southern Nevada. On August 29, the film will expand to markets all across the country. Some of the new markets include Denver, Los Angeles, Houston, and Dallas.


Written and directed by Ryan Little (SAINTS & SOLDIERS, FOREVER STRONG), the film depicts a U.S. tank crew in the twilight of WWII. On a final mission deep in the Harz Mountains, the crew discovers a platoon of Germans, including three infamous Panzer tanks, preparing to ambush allied supply trucks.

Before the war, Sergeant Jesse Owens (Danor Gerald) was a product of segregation and racial discrimination. Forced by law to ride in the back of the bus and disenfranchised from the political process. As the Germans bear down on the Americans, Owens fights the Axis powers for a freedom he and his fellow African American soldiers have never felt.

With a deadly game of cat and mouse quickly unfolding, Owens and his predominantly white tank crew find themselves out-gunned and out-manned by the German Panzer tanks. Several in Owens’ crew are reluctant to put their faith in a black tank driver despite their dire circumstances. With tension and fear beginning to manifest Owens knows they must put aside their differences to stop the enemy from their deadly plan. Knowing that a victory over the Nazis means a victory for racial justice, Owens and his men find a way to work together to save hundreds of lives in a desperate battle against the greatest odds they have ever faced.

"We are pleased with the opening weekend’s box office success," said Ryan Little. "Beyond the box office success, we are thrilled with the responses we’ve received from people who have seen the film.”

People of all ages are enjoying the film,  the meaningful message, and highly recommending it to others. 

“The thing I love about the Saints and Soldiers movies are, no matter what our skin color, what we do, or where we come from there is one thing that makes us American. That is the belief that freedom is worth the fight,” said Tara Starling.

Co-founders Adam Abel and Ryan Little strive to create engaging entertainment.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
