Dove Review

Faith and her husband, Kevin, lost their teenage daughter years ago, and after several miscarriages to restart their family, Faith loses hope. She kicks Kevin off of their ranch and turns to heavy drinking as an escape, blaming God for taking everything she loves.

Kevin, Pastor John, and Faith’s friend, Anne, are all worried about Faith, but the more people try to reach out to her, the more she draws into herself, turning to another bottle to “fix” the problem. However, when Niki, an 18-year-old foster child, shows up on her door, Faith’s heart softens and she begins to find a new purpose.

As Niki learns about Christ and finds hope in Him, Faith’s hope is restored too.

Faith’s Challenge offers consistent Christian themes of redemption, hope, and forgiveness. However, alcohol abuse and several mature scenes aren’t appropriate for children, making this film Dove-approved for Ages 12+.

The Dove Take:

Unable to restore her family, Faith turns to drinking and bitterness to drown her anger, but when a foster girl shows up at her door needing hope, it is Faith who discovers that she needs to find her way back home.
