Ladies of the House


When three ladies are asked to refurbish a house for their church, they find that they must break down their own self-perceptions in order to build something together. Birdie can’t get along with her husband, Rose doesn’t want to do anything without her husband and Elizabeth has everything she wants, but nothing to call her own. Filled with heart, humor and hammers, “Ladies of the House” follows three women who find out that their construction project will mend each of their personal lives in ways they never expected.

Dove Review

These “Ladies of the House” are on a mission that will change all of their lives forever. Each woman has a different type of life and relationship with her husband. So this project helps them overcome the challenges of refurbishing the house but also their personal lives. Together Birdie, Rose and Elizabeth learn what it takes to work together but they also become great friends who are there for each other when their personal lives are not going well.

This is an inspirational movie about friendships and personal relationships. Although it is a dramatic film there are some comical scenes when the women try to remodel this house. We award this movie the Dove” Family-Approved” Seal for 12 and older.
