The Resurrection of Gavin Stone Movie Review
#GavinStoneMovie #TigerStrypesBlog
I got an email asking if I was interesting in watching “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” and posting about it. I had heard a bit about the movie, but during the time that it was released, life was crazy, and I never really thought about going to see it. Being able to now watch it via DVD made it easier to make the time to enjoy it.

The story was amazing! So many times in life, we think that we have it all figured out, our way is the right way, and so on. Seeing Gavin go through what he did and realize that there is a chance of second chances, and third…fourth, etc. from God. He loves us so much that He is always willing to pick us back up from when we fall and help us to continue on the correct path. I am so thankful for that.

In the movie, seeing the transformation, and how being a child of God doesn’t mean you have to be some movie star, but just a normal person with a heart on fire for serving Him. You gain so much in the way of friendships, teachings and how you live your life.  That, in itself, is so worth what you realize that you need to let go of.

I would definitely recommend this movie for adults, kids, whole families, and even church groups. It would really bring on amazing conversations of how the Lord was able to resurrect your life and others.

Yes, I had to change many things when I became a parent. Oh my goodness I must see this movie. It is going to be a long week or two until it is out and gets in our movie stores. I just may have to purchase it. What a wonderful preview.

Yes, I remember when I met my husband and his family and saw what a true related with God is all about.
