real characters, struggle with major life changes
11 January 2005 | by symesd-1See all my reviews

An average family stumbles into Christianity and struggle with all the standard things new Christians find as they start to grow as believers. I totally related to these believable and often funny characters. They deal with death, anger, disappointment, a relationship with a neighbor and many other interesting life-issues. The young pastor learns how to preach. The young bikers without direction are well played by at least one up and coming actress. If you look close in the church scene you will see the grandmother from the television show the Waltons. I recognized the father's mother from the Wizard of Oz movie..I believe she played the wicked witch.
