Family Movie Night!

I’m happy to say that I get to share another family movie with one of you! 


Abel’s Field, had us laughing, crying and in the end, having some really tough conversations with our kids. 

The story-line isn’t predictable.  In fact, it draws you in immediately as you watch two obviously hurting characters work through their struggles. 

Orphaned by his mother and abandoned by his father, a high school senior named Seth (Samual Davis) does his best to support and care for his two little sisters.  

When circumstances have him assigned to work afterschool with the groundskeeper, he has to fit one more job in his already overwhelming load of responsibilities.   And he soon finds himself having to make choices that no kid should have to make.

The grounds keeper, Abel (Kevin Sorbo), has his own deep issues.  Quiet and reserved, he becomes the reluctant mentor to the young man, encouraging him to ask God for help.

Ironically, Seth helps Abel as well.  And both men learn some incredible lessons about faith, forgiveness and the worthiness of God for our trust.

If you are interested in sharing this movie with your family (for free!!), leave a comment below and I’ll pick a winner from the comments next Friday, February 1.

Mari from My Little Corner Of The World is giving away a copy as well.  She picks her winner tomorrow!  So if you hurry over, you can be entered in her giveaway too!
