In God’s Time


Years of bouncing from one foster care home to another have left Mason Jones (Patrick Davis) feeling unwanted and unloved. When the 17-year-old moves in with the Lewis family (Pete Freeland & Robyn Lively), they seem just like all his previous foster parents: middle-aged, one child, and called by God to change his life. However, unlike the others, the Lewis family is determined to keep Mason around, despite the initial wishes of their son, Nate, who views taking Mason into their home as an attempt to replace their deceased son and brother, Jack. With zero chances left and no options other than being locked up in juvenile detention, Mason starts attending a court-mandated support group. There, he finds a surprise ally in the pastor’s daughter Lacey (Jeannette Grout) and learns important life lessons about humility, respect, and fresh start.

Dove Review

“In God’s Time” is a movie about the preciousness of time. It involves a bit of a fantasy plot, about a watch that shows the past and how important it is. It centers on five people and their situations. One man, a doctor, is losing his wife to cancer. It takes a toll on him and he turns to drinking and taking pills. A man named Jerry, who is homeless, sees his little girl by the power of the watch, and he goes in search of her. Another man, Brandon, is AWOL from the army. His brother committed suicide and he didn’t feel up to going back to the army. He gets a girl pregnant and realizes he has a responsibility to fulfill.

The acting is solid, and the various stories are all tied together and wrapped up nicely by film’s end. While it has some objectionable material due to some drug use, we are awarding this film our Faith-Based Seal as it contains a strong faith-based message.
