With two young children at home, I am always looking for good, wholesome movies with a Christian message. I love it when we can watch a movie as a family and come away uplifted, with a renewed sense of focus and purpose.
A little bit about the movie:
The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God. “What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”
I watched the movie with my husband and 13yo daughter. We all thought it was very good. It starts out a little slow, but by the middle of the movie it picks up pace. We loved the Christian and often times moving message of trusting in God even when you do not understand or cannot see the road ahead. I would highly recommend this film to families, and especially young adults who are trying to figure out their purpose in life.
