Trivia

One of the daughters makes a comment about being thirteen and the mom played by Jennifer Garner says "I know, practically an adult." Garner played a girl who literally became an adult overnight in 13 Going on 30 (2004). See more »

Goofs

As the Beam's are driving to Church at the beginning of the movie, the registration sticker is shown with a 2011 expiration date. In 2010/2011 two stickers would have been on the windshield: the registration sticker and a state inspection sticker. As of 2015, the inspection sticker is no longer required, suggesting that principal photography took place that year. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Christy Beam: [narrating] When I was growin' up, people didn't really talk about miracles. I'm not sure I understood what they were or if I believed in them. A miracle is defined as something not explicable by natural or scientific laws. But then how do you explain it? How does it happen? Who or what is behind it?

Strong acting, strong message, amazing film
16 April 2016 | by cin_dee10See all my reviews

I went to see this movie with five others and we all agreed that it is an excellent film. The fact that we stood around talking about it afterwords and "debriefing" tells you something. The film has a few powerful messages whether one has any kind of faith or not. I would encourage everyone young and old to take the opportunity to see it as it is a must see. Refreshing to see a movie that holds one's attention without violence, bad language and negative outcomes. On the contrary, this was a message of hope and a wonderful story of a family and their struggles with illness, money and their faith. The acting was AMAZING from every character. The critics got it WRONG so WRONG. Go.see.this.movie.
