This is a DVD that will touch anyone who watches it! It is about pain and suffering and who in life hasn’t been touched by those things? In this quality production we hear stories and testimonies by people who have been touched by pain, such as Christian singer Jeremy Camp, who married his wife Melissa despite her battle with cancer and how he dealt with the pain of the experience. We learn the story of Greg and Cathe Laurie, who lost their son Christopher to a car accident, not long after the birth of his child. We also learn of Nick Vujicic, who was born without arms or legs. Despite the tragedies each of these people faced, everyone has an amazing story of where the journey ended up after they held on to their hope and faith in God. They each talk about how God is with us in the pain.
This film, although touching on life’s pains and difficult moments, also focuses on what holding on to hope and looking to Christ can do. We are recommending it for ages twelve plus, due to the sophisticated theme, and the scene of a girl cutting herself although just a trickle of blood is shown on her arm. There is also a girl who is seen reaching for drugs of some sort and we see briefly that she is high but the scene is not graphic and is used to make a point that some people turn to drugs during painful times in their lives. We strongly recommend this DVD. It can actually be life changing and should be utilized as a tool to minister to those who are hurting. This one has earned our highest rating, five Doves. Don’t miss “Hope for Hurting Hearts”! It’s remarkable.
