The Woodcarver dvd review/giveaway


Never underestimate the power of prayer!!
About the Movie:
Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church's beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.

My Thoughts:
This was a really great movie that hit home for me in a lot of ways. My husband and I have been married for 14 years. In those 14 years we have come really close to separating. And I have a son that has been troubled and in trouble. When I look back at the worst times it has been when we have gotten away from God. I truly believe that having God in the middle of all of your relationships makes all the difference in the world.

This movie has a lot of learning lessons in it.  The first lesson is to never underestimate the power of prayer. And the second lesson is before you do anything, always ask first "What would Jesus do?"

If you are struggling with family, work, relationships or just life in general, then I highly recommend this movie for you. It will be available on DVD on Tuesday March 13th. Or you can win one!!
