Flame On is a DVD documentary of a family that endured
tragedy in the loss of a loved one. The Cooper family lost their
son and brother, Cooper, at a very young age in an accident at
their home. Flame On is the story of how they are able
to wake up each day since that tragic event. As stated on the jacket
of the DVD, Flame On illustrates the struggle between
the sovereignty of God and human responsibility while examining
how faith in the Lord Jesus Christ can take you from the very bottom
of despair to victory through tragedy.
Our family has not experienced the loss of a child. Even trying
to get my hands around this kind of grief seems unfathomable. Would
my faith carry me through? Would the needs of my remaining children
help to stir me out of bed the next day? These are the very real
issues that J.J. and Melanie did not have the option of merely
contemplating; rather, they experienced the reality. Young Cooper
went to be with the Lord after a tragic ATV accident in which his
dad was the driver of the vehicle. As a mom, would I have been
able to forgive my husband through the power of Christ? Melanie
has, and she shares this and more in her story as recorded in Flame
On. J.J. elaborates on his own struggle in forgiving himself
and trusting in the sovereignty of God.
This video can serve as an inspiration and blessing to other families
who have experienced a similar loss. The video is not for sale.
The producers simply ask that those interested in using it for
ministry purposes through churches or individually between families
be willing to pay for the shipping costs.
After having viewed Flame On, I think that like the
Coopers I would be able to rise from my bed the next day through
the grace of God. This is the core of the message that this family
seeks to share with those that are experiencing grief and tragedy.
