Mirror mirror, mirror on the wall
Tellin' those lies, pointing out your flaws
That isn't who you are
That isn't who you are
Those of you who have listened for a while, you know that I don't usually host guys on this podcast. But for our two most recent episodes, my guests have been of the male persuasion. We (Jess and I) celebrated Bible Belles' 1st birthday and our 25th episode with my fantastic and wonderful other half Brent. This week, my guest is the other half of another amazing duo: two-time Grammy winning band for KING & COUNTRY and star of the movie "Priceless" which releases in theatres TODAY: Joel Smallbone.
First, let's just tackle the song. for KING & COUNTRY’s “Priceless” single is one of the best songs out right now that speaks to the true value of a woman. I literally cannot sing the lyrics to Rooney without crying. Seriously. It is so moving and relates so beautifully the truth that our worth is without measure. As women, we're all just grown up girls who have struggled with this. A lot of us are still struggling to know and live into our own value, and those of us with daughters want something drastically different for them.
I see you dressed in white
Every wrong made right
I see a rose in bloom
At the sight of you (oh so priceless)
Irreplaceable, unmistakable, incomparable
Darling, it's beautiful
I see it all in you (oh so priceless)
Inspired by true events, PRICELESS is a powerful drama/thriller about James Stevens who at one time was a good man with a great life -- but then things drastically changed. After the tragic death of his wife and losing custody of his little girl, James found himself at the darkest crossroad of his life. Angry, desperate, and unable to hold down a steady job, he agreed to drive a box truck on a one-time trip cross country for cash -- no questions asked. Then he discovered what he was delivering, and he was faced with a life-changing choice. No spoilers! Go see the movie.
I said it to Joel during the interview, and I'll say it again here. It is awesome to hear a guy talk about women the way Joel does. As he put it so beautifully, “Part of the DNA of for KING & COUNTRY is this idea of respect and honor in relationships and women being priceless. "What we’ve found in our beliefs as men is that people are made equal. The film continues the idea that no one is a commodity and everyone deserves to be loved and loved well."
PRICELESS opens in theatres this weekend. Go see this movie and be encouraged by someone willing to take a stand against forces in this world that stand between women and the life that God designed for them.
