As a mom, it’s important for me to have quality and wholesome television and movies available for myself and my family to enjoy. While I subscribe to subscription-based programs such as Netflix and Hulu, it’s hard to find shows with a Christian or wholesome theme. This is why I was excited for the opportunity to review the streaming service of Crossflix.

- Popular Series
One thing to note is there wasn’t too much information given about each listing. A trailer isn’t always offered so you kind of have to just start watching to see if you are going to like what you pick. And there is no information given as to actors that I could find. Sometimes if I recognize an actor/actress in a movie, or can watch a trailer, I am more apt to watch.
The first movie I watched was Faith’s Song (1:42) about a young girl whose faith is tested when her parents are suddenly killed and she’s forced to move in with relatives who do not share her beliefs. While the acting underwhelmed me at times, overall this was a great movie. The general theme of standing strong when your faith is tested is prevalent throughout and all ended well.
The next time I tried to watch a film was on my computer, and for some reason I was unable to connect. I have pretty much resolved that due to the fact that there are 7 adults living in my house, who all use the internet, that I just got on at a bad time. So off I went to my Kindle Fire again to watch My Mother’s Future Husband (1:29). This movie is about a daughter who is desperate for her mother to find love again, but both she and her mom must heal from their past before they can move forward. This was a great movie, and I thought the acting was well done.
While my health and streaming issues (not to do with Crossflix) kept me from viewing more, I am excited to continue watching throughout the rest of my free 3-month subscription.
