The Grace Card DVD Review and Giveaway

tgc

I was sent a copy of this movie to review.  We made it a family night and watched it together.  It was a great story and an awesome outcome at the end.  For myself, I found it very good, it had a great message and the story line was one that could/has been a reality for so many.  The younger kids watched it in bits and pieces, but that is expected.



My older kids, the teens and tween, had a lot of questions throughout and after the movie.  It was good for starting discussions and that is what we like!!  We are a family that talks through a lot of different issues, and we are very real with our kids...no sugar coating here.

We would definintely give this movie 2 thumbs up, for an older crowd.
Synopsis
Everything can change in an instant ... and take a lifetime to unravel.

When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God ... and just about everyone else.

Mac's rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he's partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.

Mac's home life is as frightening as anything he encounters on the streets of Memphis. Money is tight and emotions run high as he constantly argues with his wife and his surviving son Blake, who is hanging with the wrong crowd and in danger of flunking out of school.

Sam Wright also never expected to be a police officer. He has a calling—to be a minister like his Grandpa George. But leading a small, start-up church doesn't always put enough food on the table for a young family, so Sam doubles as a police officer. With his new promotion to Sergeant, Sam starts questioning if his real calling might actually be police work rather than the pastorate.

Can Mac and Sam somehow join forces to help one another when it's impossible for either of them to look past their differences—especially the most obvious one?

Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD ... and never underestimate the power of God's love.
