Beautiful and uplifting...
27 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My family and I really enjoyed this movie. It's great entertainment for the young and the old. It gives you hope and leaves a warm feeling in your heart. We feel that anyone who watches this will enjoy it. We also appreciate the encouraging story that is displayed with being members of the LDS church. We encourage everyone to purchase a copy of this film and watch it with their families. It's warm, inspiring and funny. It leaves you laughing and crying. The story behind it is very real and the audience can easily place themselves in the same situations as the characters in this story. The film work was great also. The producers and director did an amazing job getting the characters to come to life. Thanks Rob, Andrea and Candlelight Media.
