Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters

Familial relationships are at the heart of Pure Flix’s new original movie “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters” follows sisters Abby, Zoey, and Bridget as they each navigate their personal relationship with their father.

Raising Izzie

In “Raising Izzie,” the bond between sisters Izzie and Gertie Nash becomes inseparable after their mother passes away. Afraid they would be separated if they are placed in the foster care system, older sister Gertie takes care of her little sister in addition to working and attending school while keeping the façade that their mother is still present in their lives.

Little Women

We all know Louisa May Alcott's classic novel, we follow the lives of four sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March - detailing their passage from childhood to womanhood, facing blossoming ambitions and relationships, as well as tragedy, while maintaining their unbreakable bond as sisters. You can stream the modern twist on this classic tail right now on Pure Flix.

Send Your Sister a Handwritten Note

Remember getting handwritten letters in the mail? Or passing notes to your sister back and forth back in school? Revive your cursive skills and send your sister a letter thanking them for their presence in your life, reminisce about some of your favorite memories growing up together, or share your favorite traits about them as a person!

Send Your Sister a Text

We understand that we’re all busy and may not have time to send a handwritten note - but a text can have the same effect! Thank your sister, tell them you love them, or just wish them a “Happy Sisters Day!”

Share Your Favorite Photo of You Together

Nothing brings up good memories, stories and laughter like a good throwback photo! Share it on social media and tag your sisters, or just send it to them personally and let them know why you enjoy that particular photo! We’ll bet it will spark some fun family stories!

Call Your Sister

Sure, our sisters usually are one of the first people we call with news, to catch up, or talk to about something going on, but just carve out a few minutes on National Sister Day just to share your love and appreciation for them, ask specifically about their life or just take the few minutes to just listen to whatever is on their mind.

Pray for Your Sister

Our sisters need our prayers - prayers of appreciation for them as a person, prayers of petition and intercession, possibly even prayers of forgiveness or healing. Ask the Holy Spirit to be with them and for Jesus to walk alongside them every step of the way. Not sure what your sister needs? Ask them! You can even ask to pray with your sister right then and there.
