Trivia

In 2005, William Paul Young was working three jobs and living in a 900-square-foot apartment with his wife and four of his six children after losing his home to bankruptcy. On his daily 40-minute train commute, he began writing a novel that he hoped would express his feelings about God to his children. It was a gift from his heart, the one thing he could offer during a season where he lacked money to buy gifts. He expected it would be read by his family and maybe a few friends. He was off by more than 20 million. Larry Gelten, New York Post, News.com.au See more »

Great to see an Awesome movie on the big screen!
4 March 2017 | by (Malibu) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that I had no idea that Sam Worthington has the acting chops that he proved to have in this movie! I found the movie to be uplifting and inspirational and very earthy in dealing with some dark topics. It walked me through a path of forgiveness and grieving and how to get to the other side using my brain in a way that I don't think I processed before. This really is a very entertaining and fun way to show how to get there in a very compassionate way.

It's just a really good movie with a lot of really great messages. I'm going to go see it again. I hope everyone sees it at least once
