(Included in our package was a handout for Samaritan Ministries, our DVD, and a thoughtful note)
The film was beautifully shot by the Moore family. Their farm and home is so homey. Really there is no other word to describe it. Their place is just one of those places that if you were to go you wouldn’t want to leave. It is beautiful. There are shots of horses, sheep, baby birds, etc.
Throughout the film you can see the love the family has for each other. We watched the behind scenes as well and the love is definitely real, not just show. The family stands out. Seriously they stand out in a good way. I admire them. The ladies are all modestly dressed. My daughters and I were awing over some of the ladies outfits. I was even telling my husband about it. He, unfortunately, did not get the pleasure of watching the film with us. Yet. The Moore family is quite large too which also makes them stand out.
My children really didn’t like to see the film end. They were encouraged by the Moore family. At one point in the film the mother comes out and sees some of her children watching a Crowe’s Nest video surrounded by lots of toys. She tells them to pick up the mess. The children are heard saying Philippians 2:14, “Do all things without murmurings and disputings.” The children clean the room, mom comes in, and they all celebrate by hugging. How sweet. My children have actually been quoting that verse when I tell them to pick up!!! Oh how it blesses this mother to hear her children quoting Scripture to get through a task. The word of God is living and powerful! At another point in the film it shows some children writing Scripture on paper. One of the girls later hands one to her harried waiter. It’s a sweet moment of a child fulfilling the Great Commission. Just acting I know, but it serves as a reminder to my children that they aren’t so weird after all. And they’re not. I do like that they include the homemade Gospel tract scene. I can see some of those being made in our future. They present the Gospel at the end as well. A great way to end a sweet film.
This is definitely a safe film. You could turn it on and leave the room without having to worry about what your children are watching. Bonus for me is that they use KJV scripture. All and all we really enjoyed A-B-C Say It With Me Bible Memory Verses. I asked my children to rate it for me. They give it five stars….which means they LOVE IT!
Now my review on the Moore family themselves, from my limited contact with them through email, is that they’re a sweet family. Honestly. They were professional and kind. I enjoyed working with them to bring this review to you dear readers! If you’ll do yourself a favor and hop on over to their website to purchase this film or one of their others for your wee little ones, that would be awesome. Not only are you benefiting yourself (because we all know how hard it is to find family friendly, godly movies) but you’re also supporting a brother and sister in Christ. I receive no commission for this and was given a copy in exchange for an honest review (FTC rules). My honest opinion is that this film is a great way to encourage your children in the faith. You can purchase it on their website Moore Family Films or on Amazon.
Have you seen this film? Or any of their other films? What are your thoughts on it? If you havent seen it do you plan to watch it soon?
