Thank God we are getting much needed rain here in PA! I'm not going to fib; it is nice not having to water my veggie garden every day! And I'm not really an outdoor kind of person, I go out when my boys ask me too, but I'm not a fan of being over heated and sweating! Which is why I love rainy days when I can just sit in the central air. These past few days I've been binge watching a new show on Pure Flix,
New series “Eleanor’s Bench" is streaming exclusively on Pure Flix now! “Eleanor’s Bench” is a touching show that shines a light on the juvenile justice system in an informative and enlightening way.
Parents, this new show is full of informative lessons about following God’s calling, practicing self-control, learning from your past and discovering that we are enough and deserving of God’s love.
“Eleanor’s Bench” is a powerful reminder that we’re all equal in God’s eyes.
Synopsis: Eleanor Thomas’s success as a Washington DC juvenile court judge is challenged when her inner-city past comes to court and demands more than judgment, prompting her to return to her impoverished neighborhood of youth. Will her renewed sense of purpose reinvigorate her faith?
I personally was able to review episode 3. This episode was about being a Chain Breaker. We get to watch Eleanor as she hears the case of a young man named John. John's father and uncle have both gone to prison for many years and it seems he may be following that same path. Eleanor challenges John to be different, to break the cycle. As we know it can be scary to take the unknown path, but when God is calling for us to make that change and to be the difference, we should listen to His voice and following him.
I think my favorite part of this episode was when Eleanor said, "I understand but I have to do my job, I have to make sure I help you become the best version of you." Not going to lie as a mom this one hit home. As most parents know at times we have to be "the bad guy" the one who says no, or rebukes our kids when they do wrong. It isn't easy, no one likes when they are put into that position, but what Eleanor said is so true. She may be a judge on the show, but the lesson applies to everyday life as well.
This show is full of lessons like the one above. I can't wait to see the rest of the series!! I hope you will join me watching on Pure Flix!
