High Impact Nationwide
9 November 2018 | by angelaksweetSee all my reviews

God uses the ordinary to do the extraordinary...for HIS glory. I think viewers will be surprised how REAL this movie feels...the bouquet of stories come from many angles are interwoven in a compelling (not cheesy) way. The impact stems from a strategic release and nationwide partnership with ministry organizations and within the first year the producers were brought to Capital Hill twice, even asked to visit the White House. To an audience whose eyes need to be opened the effects of trauma (regardless of the source), have personally experienced PTSD or have concerns for others who suffer will be touched by reality, moved with compassion AND impacted by the coast to coast movement in place. The Stronger Alliance has created a workbook and leader guide being used by multiple churches and organizations today to help people walk out healing in Christ. Many unexpected turns...just wait and see!

It's hard to talk about tough issues...without being graphic or over the top this film is a real blessing that will be drawing organic demand for years. Way to go!
