Tizzie’s Take: This movie was terrific! There are so many good things to say about it. (However, I was close to tears; and I never cry in movies…though Frozen was a close call). The actors and actresses were great, the story was incredible, and the message was full of hope. I specifically want to mention its message that we can all make a difference. At the end of the movie, it showed how certain people who showed up in the young girl’s life impacted her and helped her along her journey. This ill girl’s impact in another patient’s life at the hospital was incredible. We can all make a difference. The little things matter.
Summary: An average 10-year-old girl develops heartbreaking illness, and it takes a toll on her whole family’s life. Her parents can’t understand why their little girl is in such pain. A scary accident seems to heal the illness, and their daughter claims she went to heaven while she was unconscious.
Message: We don’t know why suffering happens, but we need to trust God through it. God does miracles, and He sometimes chooses to use us to be miracles in someone else’s life.
