Review & Giveaway: Three Hearts Movie

A passionate team of people work to save the lives of three Mongolian children with life-threatening heart defects. But the task is not easy and is filled with unexpected challenges. Two host families make sacrifices to care for these children and their mothers, while a team of doctors and nurses volunteer their time only to stare directly into the face of life and death. How far would you go to save a life? It’s a fight for survival, a fight of faith, and a fight for a new life for these three hearts.

As a mother of a child with a heart defect, I was very interested in viewing the movie Three Hearts. I was not expecting it to be a documentary-type film, so that was a pleasant surprise. I also didn't know that the surgeries were run by Samaritan's Purse, the organization that we pack the Christmas boxes for each November.

This movie is a beautiful testament to the Christian faith and a powerful portrayal to a mother's love. The three children profiled are all certain to die without heart surgery. Several times I found myself crying as families were separated and mothers kissed their children for the possible last time.

Although I can't imagine watching this film over and over, I believe it would make a wonderful addition to a church library or youth group collection. Another idea is to have a viewing of it at your local moms bible group and pass it around for the families to enjoy. There are moderately graphic surgery scenes, so take care when showing it to younger family members.

Three Hearts is available here for $19.99. I am pleased to be able to offer one copy as a giveaway, Follow the directions below and I will choose a winner on February 29. Winner will have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen.

I like having family friendly and enjoyable movies for the kids and their friends to watch, because we do not have cable or satellite. I like knowing what they are watching is safe and of Christian character.
