The Grace Card DVD Review and Giveaway

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.



My Thoughts:  Oh my goodness this was a good movie!!  Just have your tissues nearby for the last 30-40 minutes because I'm sure you will be a weepy mess like I was. 

The questions the movie poses are, "How can you love your enemy and can you forgive them?"  That is a hard question and one we probably don't think about much.  Do we even have enemies?  Maybe not in the true sense of the word, but what about the guy on the road who cuts you off or the bully at your child's school?  Do we love them?  This movie really makes you think and will hopefully open your heart.  {Ephesians 2:8 ~ For it is by grace you have been saved}

And I also want to mention that this movie is rated PG-13.  I did not watch this with my daughter (who is 8) due to racial overtones, drugs, and violence.  You know you children best and you can find out more about the ratings at Kids in Mind
