Wonderful
13 September 2006 | by harleyquinn1See all my reviews

Great movie It really touched me it brings you closer to Jesus and teaches you about his acceptance of you no matter what you have done, it teaches you about his love and care. It brings you close to home and makes you think if Jesus can forgive me for my sins, I can forgive others about what they have done! It's a happy and joyous film full of faith growth and love!!!!!!! it also contains many talented gifted stars such as Tamara mowary and darius mccury and kirk franklin! and it's about God's plans for you! it teaches you not to live for self if Jesus has a plan for you than it will come around a 2nd time if he wants you to have it! it teaches you to let God's will for your life be known for you not you tell God your will for your life! it's a film everyone should see and more people should support and make more films like these!!! for all to see and enjoy May God bless and Keep you all- HarleyQuinn1
