I'm not a football fan, but the plot on this one has me curious. Plus, I'm a sucker for movies based on true stories. This movie portrays the life of Brendan Burlsworth, a person that overcome adversity, an excellent example of what a hard-work ethic looks like, and whose family faced a tragedy immediately following a victory.
I am thankful for films that not only allow Christianity and morals to grace the big screen, but celebrate them boldly, without sugar-coating the Christian life to make sound like a walk in the park. As my children grow, they will face so many challenges, temptations and conflicting philosophies. While my husband and I are doing our best to prepare them for their adult lives, having materials to provide conversation starters with tangible examples is of tremendous assistance. I continue to thank God for the freedom we have at this time to talk openly about Jesus Christ and am thankful for those with media platforms who boldly stand by the Truth.
Here's the movie trailer for GREATER, opening in theaters January 29, 2016:
