“My Special Stone” is the story of Karen, who is facing an overwhelming, impossible medical condition that is not only destroying her life but has also wrecked and torn apart her family.

Dove Review

“My Special Stone” speaks to the heart of the viewer. Anyone who has known suffering and battled problems should be able to relate to this heartwarming story about a girl named Karen. Karen is hospitalized with little hope for recovery. To top it off, her parents are constantly fighting and her father is drinking; Karen knows it is due to the stress of her illness. But then Mary, a strong Christian woman, enters her life and becomes a source of hope to her in addition to becoming a “grandma” for her.

Filled with biblical references—in addition to neat artwork of the stories of the Bible—this moving movie will inspire many viewers as it reminds them that hope is alive as long as there is breath, and that God is still a God of miracles. The title comes from the idea of David using a stone to defeat Goliath and so Karen collects what she calls “believing stones” in her faith that God will give victory. The conclusion of this film will please viewers. We are glad to award “My Special Stone” our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages, although we want to note that the film is not intended for young children. This movie shows what the power of love can do!
