Anything is possible with God'
26 May 2019 | by keiththomas-00735See all my reviews

This movie shows nothing is impossible when you deny yourself and follow God. He will do more than you can think or imagine. The prisons in the 20's and 30's were hardcore. Enough to change the most innocent person into a harden killer. If you are a follower of Christ, this story will give you a great deal of hope in your trials. If you're not a follower of Christ, this story will give you a great deal of hope in your trials when you realize everything you've tried doesn't work and you're ready to try what does. If God let's you do whatever you want, then you are your on God. Thank you God for leading Don Umphrey to write this story and bringing it to life on the screen for all to see your Glory.
