Storyline

Unable to cope with the squabbles of his divorcing parents, fifteen-year-old Matthew Stevenson takes it out on his church. The old and godly widower whose woodcarvings Matthew trashed takes in the kid as a worker to help repair the damage, which also provides Matthew a quiet harbor in which to consider WWJD (What would Jesus do?). That phrase gets back to and influences his parents as well, and the family that was once disintegrating after turned from God mends. Written by statmanjeff

Prayers are still answered
27 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In WWJD II: The Wooodcarver, John Ratzenberger plays Ernest, a hard working, decent and faith filled man. It could be my Dad or many other people's Dad, Grandfather, brother or husband. I wouldn't say that the movie is perfect, but nothing is. That's why I liked it. It's just down to earth and shows the messiness that exists in this world.

I don't think the film is overly preachy. Yes Jesus is mentioned, but in a way that shows hurting people that if they want a fulfilled life like Ernest has, they might try putting God first. And just because they do, it doesn't cause everything in their life to be rosy--just meaningful.

Of course, a lot of people become bitter and miserable when life seems to fail them. This movie shows how prayers often need humans to act unselfishly in order for positive change to occur. In that sense, I believe that prayers are answered. This movie affirms my belief.
