- Encouraging movie that shows how much one person can make a difference. by Angie P. on 3/21/2013
This is an exceptional family movie to challenge your faith. I highly recommend it for preteens and teens. One person can make a big difference in the lives of so many.
- Must see film by Angie V. on 8/4/2012
I highly recommend this film for your family. A wonderful story of grace and forgiveness, and a great conversation tool to use with your kids.
- Excellent - One of the Best Movies Ever by Grandma on 7/15/2012
We showed this at our Movie Night for 4th & 5th Graders, and they absolutely loved it. It is truly one of the best movies ever and compares with Letters to God. If you want a movie that gives the Plan of Salvation clearly and simple enough that children can understand, this is your movie. We will watch it many many times as it is one that will be forever in our hearts.
It is also a true story because at the end, it gives the updates of how each character portrayed is now serving the Lord as an adult. Praise God for this wonderful movie. We absolutely loved it.
- Anyone Can Make A Difference by Lu on 11/24/2011
I loved this movie. It is reminiscent of the older style of movies with slower flow. A true story about a man who lived his life to the honor of God. It shows that everyone can make a difference in small simple ways, but that impact can grow exponentially.
I took my Sunday school class of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders to see it. They all seemed to "get" the meaning. My son, 9 at the time, loved the movie and asked me to buy it for our family. He still says it is one of his favorites.
