This Is Our Time {review and giveaway}

I'm sure I have mentioned before that I am always looking for good, wholesome family entertainment for my family.  Well, I found another movie.  Or, rather, it found me because I had an opportunity to review it.

This Is Our Time ... To seize God's calling

About This Is Our Time
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.”

This is a wonderful movie about the ups and downs in the lives of five friends after they graduate from college and head out on their own.  They are learning how to follow God's purpose for their lives even when there seems to be no purpose.  Being obedient to God even when it is difficult.  Doing what is right even when it isn't popular.  And standing up for what they believe in.

My favorite line from the movie goes something like this ... "God doesn't necessarily call us to DO something; He calls us to BE something."

You really need to see this movie!  In fact, you have an opportunity because I am giving away a DVD of the movie.  Just leave a comment on this post.  You could tell me what you feel God's call is on your life.  Or you could just say Hi, I want to win this movie.  :)  Just make sure you do so by Thursday, April 18.  I will randomly choose a winner on Friday, April 19.

Thanks for the great review of THIS IS OUR TIME. It was a great gift from God to write and direct. We have also created a four week study guide as a FREE resource for churches, youth and college organizations. Pure Flix will be posting it later this week. I hope it helps everyone take a closer look at what God is calling them to be!
