Occasionally I am offered the chance to review inspiring and faith-based movies on this blog. Since I am always looking for good family-friendly movies I usually accept the offer and receive a free copy of the movie in exchange for the blog review.
I recently received This Is Our Time. This motivational film follows five college friends the year after graduation. At a time in their lives when the phrase "seize the day" is a reality, these friends share in the joys and struggles of entering "the real world." Through faith and friendship they are able to share in each others happiness and failures. When tragedy strikes they are forced to find the courage to follow the Lord's path. Through this they achieve true love and happiness.
I enjoyed watching this movie, although I thought many of the themes it presented were too mature for my sheltered TV-free kids. Although nothing was visually inappropriate, most of the context went over their heads. I do think that this movie would be very appropriate for families with older teens or for mom and dad to enjoy movie night on their own.
I have generously been offered a copy of this movie for one of my readers. Simply leave a comment describing a time you felt called by God to lead your life differently. Be sure I have a way to contact you if my daughter chooses your comment from those submitted. She'll choose a number and that comment will be the winner.
If you don't win a copy of the movie and still want to check it out, I recommend purchasing the movie through Family Christian Stores. You'll be helping an honest retailer and gaining a good family flick.
DISCLAIMER: As stated above, I received a free copy of This Is Our Time in exchange for an honest review on this blog. I received no other compensation and all opinions are my own.
