Belle Means Beauty: Some of My Favorite Things From the Movie + More

These lyrics give me goose bumps & are my favorite from the film… “I want adventure in the great wide somewhere. I want it more than I can tell - & for once it might be grand to have someone understand, I want so much more than they’ve got planned.” I feel such a connection with those words Belle sings from her heart. They’re things I want too…so much.


Belle is a bookish girl (who doesn't judge a book by its cover) with a smart head on her shoulders & a heart full of dreams.  I love who she is & wish to be more like her.  Oh, I love her name, too!  One of my favorites!

There's this sweet modern movie version of the fairy tale titled "Belle & the Beast: A Christian Romance."  Set in present day with a repairman's daughter named Belle & a beastly man with a hardened heart, it's a great faith-based romance.  Can Belle break through Eric's tough exterior & help reignite his faith in God?  This is one of my favorite romantic flicks. 


  1. Yes, this movie' soundtrack gives you shivers! The oiginla bradway cast recording is awesome too, you should totally check it out!

  2. I love that version of Beauty and the Beast, I found it on netflix and had to get it. I am pretty sure I'm going to name one of my daughters Belle, but now with the Twilight books and the main characters name being Belle.....=P

  3. I LOVE Beauty and the Beast...I grew up watching them (and still growing up watching them;P) and Belle is my Mother's favourite Disney princess.
    I will definitely ask you some interview questions when I interview the girl before you...I'm so glad that I get to interview my dear sis.
    I hope you are having a lovely day full of those whimsical, and bright autumn days, dearest Bess!
    Lots of Love and Prayers,

  4. What a great entry- thank you! :)
