I love all the music in the movie. How can you possibly not think about the Little Mermaid and not start singing "Under the Sea"?
The girls and I got a copy of the movie and we watched it again. I love that Disney movies have messages in them for girls. Yes - a lot of it is about finding Prince Charming and people find that antiquated, but there are also some things I DO want my girls to learn (although I do hope they grow up to find their Prince Charming and pray for the guys they will marry daily). I love that in The Little Mermaid she has a dream to live out of the water and be a human and she follows that dream. She doesn't give up even when it looks like the odds are stacked against her. She finds her voice and that is exactly what I hope for my girls.
I pray they will set their sights on Big Dreams and pursue those dreams with confidence. I pray 1 Timothy 4:12 - "Let no one look down upon you because of your youth". I try to encourage my girls that they are smart and capable and can do anything. I try to build them up - not so they will ever be cocky but so they will have confidence to try anything they want to.
I would imagine most of your little girls (or boys) would love to discover The Little Mermaid with you! You can order it (here).
Not only can you bring home The Little Mermaid to your family to enjoy, but also - you have a chance to win a $50 Visa Gift Card and a Little Mermaid Diamond Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack. Just leave me a comment and tell me: How do you encourage your children to follow their dreams?
