This Is Our Time: {DVD Review & Giveaway}

April 30, 2013

With two young children at home, I am always looking for good, wholesome movies with a Christian message.  I love it when we can watch a movie as a family and come away uplifted, with a renewed sense of focus and purpose.

I was excited for the opportunity to review This is Our Time by Pure Flix.  This movie was released on DVD on April 16th, and is available nationwide at Family Christian Stores.

A little bit about the movie:

The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.  “What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”

I watched the movie with my husband and 13yo daughter.  We all thought it was very good. It starts out a little slow, but by the middle of the movie it picks up pace.  We loved the Christian and often times moving message of trusting in God even when you do not understand or cannot see the road ahead.  I would highly recommend this film to families, and especially young adults who are trying to figure out their purpose in life.

    Our family enjoys watching the old classics right now, like The Wizard of Oz, my husband recently introduced our daughters to. We also enjoy a good wholesome Christian film. The last one we watched as a family was Soul Surfer. My husband and I watched Courageous not long ago too. Thanks for your review of this movie. I hope I win! :)

    I saw this film and really really loved it. Of all the films we sell, this is one that I’m most excited to get behind because I thought it was not only well done, but acutally very true to the issues I and many of my friends wrestled with in our post-college years, and things we continue to wrestle with; namely what does it mean to live your life for God when you’re not doing what we’d all consider “real missions”. Loved the movie. Thanks for profiling it!
