I read the novel this film is based on years ago and I've never forgotten it. The movie stayed true to the novel's themes and is a wonderful, uplifting story that refutes the idea that bad things never happen to Christians. But it also shows how God can carry us through when tragedy happens and even use our lives as an example and an encouragement to others. Very moving and memorable, and a movie I wouldn't be ashamed to recommend to family and friends of any age.
There was a bit of predictability to this movie, but it was still very sweet and carried a great message. It speaks the truth that just because u have faith & follow God things will not always be easy, but in the midst of hardship there is comfort & a chance to make a difference. I found it to be uplifting and enjoyed it.
