The Grace Card DVD Giveaway 8-31

Everything can change in an instant ... and take a lifetime to unravel.
When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God ... and just about everyone else.
Mac's rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he's partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.
Mac's home life is as frightening as anything he encounters on the streets of Memphis. Money is tight and emotions run high as he constantly argues with his wife and his surviving son Blake, who is hanging with the wrong crowd and in danger of flunking out of school.
Sam Wright also never expected to be a police officer. He has a calling—to be a minister like his Grandpa George. But leading a small, start-up church doesn't always put enough food on the table for a young family, so Sam doubles as a police officer. With his new promotion to Sergeant, Sam starts questioning if his real calling might actually be police work rather than the pastorate.
Can Mac and Sam somehow join forces to help one another when it's impossible for either of them to look past their differences—especially the most obvious one?
Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD ... and never underestimate the power of God's love.
My Take:
I missed this movie when it was in the theater because it didn't come out locally.  After hearing so many good things from others that saw it I sure wish I would have taken the chance to go to another area to do so.  This is another one of those feel good movies that brings tears to your eyes. I'm personally a big fan of movies like this Facing the Giants, and Fireproof. I like the honest to goodness movies that really touch home with their message and The Grace Card is one of those movies.  It's nice to be able to relate to a movie that gives you real life type scenarios. All to often movies give you a false sense of hope and happiness, and that everything always works out in the end no matter what the crazy circumstances are.  I much prefer the movies that tell it like it is and focus on ways to make things better, not just end up that way because a movie has to end happy.  I can't wait to watch this movie over and over, there is just so much to learn from it. And of course hopefully one of these times I'll make it through without the tears.
