I wasn’t sure if you’d ever seen the Studio Ghibli film “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” to which I gave an extremely positive review here — http://projectedrealities.wordpress.com/2013/03/30/movie-review-kikis-delivery-service/ — and while part of the premise of the movie is that young Kiki is a witch, all that usually means within the context of the film is that she flies around on a broom and can talk to her cat.
The reason I’m recommending this film is that while it isn’t a “Christian film” per se, Kiki is absolutely one of my favorite characters I’ve ever seen, and she in her exceptional level of maturity would make a fantastic role model even for grown-ups. I hope and pray you are doing well; God bless! =)
Thanks for the recommendation! I have seen Kiki’s – I own it and I’ve shown bits of it to my children. It’s definitely a wonderful movie full of values that Christians certainly share. Certainly connections could be made about growing spiritually and Kiki’s own maturity. And besides all that, it’s simply a wonderful film! Miyazaki is, of course, amazing.
