Grace Unplugged-movie review


Tonight a friend and I headed out for dinner and to pre-screen the movie Grace Unplugged.  I watched the trailer that you see right up above my writing.  Just from the trailer I was pretty sure it was going to be a movie that I could connect with but I was blown away, this movie hit me hard.  As a young teen I loved the Lord and wanted to serve Him but as I got older things came up like movies, parties, friends, and of course boys.  I never totally turned my back on Him but I knew that the things I was doing weren't right and that they didn't please my parents or the Lord.  Now, as a parent I see the other side.  All I want is to raise my children up to love the Lord with all their heart, to serve Him and to follow Him.  This movie would make the perfect mommy/daughter date to open up a conversation with your teen about what their hopes and dreams are for their future and what your hopes and dreams are for their future.  They may not always look the same but they don't have to go to the extremes that Grace went to in the movie. 

The cast in Grace Unplugged was pretty amazing and I'd like to share a little bit more about them!
