This is a great movie from several perspectives. For the Christian faith, it is a beautiful example of the role of possessions in our lives. It illustrates that Biblical principal that when we lose everything that our culture values, we can gain everything that God values and gives real meaning and purpose to our lives. We are reminded of the power of one person to make a difference in the lives of many and that salvaging abused children can lead to their salvation.

The movie is a must see for those working with foster children. It honors the noble and sacrifical work they to do and the need of our society to care and support our abused children for our sake and theirs.

The movie is a great reminder for us to look beyond ourselves to the needs of others. And in choosing to serve others, our own lives can become fulfilled and complete.

I am always looking for great Christian movies as we don't even allow regular braodcast tv in our home. I do agree with most of the other 4 and 5 star reviews as to the great lessons you can learn from this movie. But the filming was shaky, the acting was corny, it was slow-paced, and they threw the ending on there abruptly. I purchased this from American Family Association as I like to support them and buy my family-friendly movies from them. I love Fireproof and Courageous and Facing the Giants. I liked The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry, The Pistol, most of the Love Comes Softly series, and more. So I DO like great Christian films, but this one just didn't do it for me. I really would like to give this movie a higher rating. It was just too unrealistic and corny I think.

I do agree with the Dove Foundation rating for it... that it's only suitable for ages 12 and up. There were rougher foster teens with bad attitudes and language that I wouldn't want young ones to see.

This movie was about a woman who lost her husband and was left with nothing. Nothing but a house, A house that already had a family of foster children living in it. The Woman goes from thinking she has lost everything with the death of her husband to finding she has more then she could ever dream of, a family found just waiting for her. Ready to take her in just like they were.

This is family viewing and with a very believable script. It deals with a bunch of issues that kids come across lots now. And it shows that people can change. It is refreshing to find decent movies out there. I am so done being "rolled in the gutter" by most movies.

This is a very touching movie about a recently widowed woman who had a stillbirthed
child, but was otherwise childless. She was quite wealthy, but finds out that her
fortune was lost, and only has left an old house in Georgia that is being used as a
foster home. She goes there with the intention of selling it, but soon finds it
her second calling in life to help take care of these, and hopefully future, foster
children. This is a fine family film, with a few generic religious moments, and
some humorous and sentimental sequences. The 5 foster children are quite good at
showing their troubled pasts, particularly the 2 teenagers, who are quite believable
when being angry and sullen. The foster parents are very plain everyday people,
no more saintly than their charges. While some scenes seem obvious or stilted in
dialogue with the supporting adults, and no doubt action fans will find this film
corny at best, I believe this will please the majority of people and families for
whom this was intended. And without giving too much away, those old enough to
remember Jane Wyman in "The Blue Veil" will see some similarity in the ending.

I like to rent Christian films and this one looked pretty good. But I was wrong. I'm sorry but it's really, really awful. The acting is awful, the plot is a little flimsy (how exactly did this wealthy woman end up penniless upon her husband's death & be forced to live with a foster family in a rundown house in the South?). And then there's the random "elderly" African American woman, clearly played by someone in her 20s, who appears at times with little bits of wisdom or criticism or I don't know what, but she is totally random, and it's just krazy. I actually fell asleep during this movie. It's just not worth it. Yay for taking in foster kids, yay for Christian films...just not this one.
