I went to my church group this past Sunday and this movie was brought up and highly recommended Chris and I watch. They also told us that we should buy it and not rent it because it is that great. So when I left that night I stopped at Target and picked it up along with some snacks. I told Chris to get Alex to sleep and we would have a makeshift date night.
This movie did not disappoint!! I laughed, I cried and I got goosebumps all multiple times throughout the movie.
I felt as though the plot line was fluid and not predictable. I found myself trying to guess at what was going to happen and each time I was wrong. But the message and theme were incredible. I feel as though it was a good family movie and it was a very relate-able movie and hits home with many families. I know at least in our family Chris & I have had times in our lives when our careers have become more important than each other and our relationship fell by the wayside.
But I also love that it reiterates the power of prayer and it encourages developing an intimate relationship with Christ. My life and the life of my family has drastically changed since we developed our new and renewed relationship with Jesus Christ.
On a scale of 0 to 5, with 5 being great and 0 being terrible, I would definitely give this movie a 5. It is for sure a movie I will watch multiple times and I will definitely beginning to put into practice a few of the techniques mentioned in the movie.
