What Would Jesus Do? (WWJD)
…The Journey Continues
(DVD Review & Giveaway)
I received the “WWJD? The Journey Continues” movie from Family Christian to watch and give my review. When you start watching it, it goes kind of slow. You’re really not sure what’s happening, but after you get into the story, you realize what it’s all about. The story, or stories that happen throughout the movie are some that happen often in our world today. I loved seeing how just “normal” people can make such a big difference in the world.
You go through the journey of multiple characters, who just like in real life, intertwine in some way or another. Seeing some boys being pretty bad kids and dealing with a Dad in prison is something that I’ve heard from even people I know of their life that they have to learn to live with. Sometimes, not in the right ways.
It was great to see the different scenarios played out and decisions being made. Just like the characters in the movie, there are times in your life when people you don’t really know, can say just a few words and teach you so much. We just need to learn when to listen!
Bound by a promise he made to his mother on her deathbed, a pastor seeks to lead his wayward ex-con brother to Christ as they work together to renovate a dilapidated church.
