The Grace Card - and a giveaway!


I was given the opportunity to preview a movie that is being released on DVD on August 16. The name of the movie is The Grace Card.
Do you remember the movie Fireproof? It inspired some people in Memphis to start producing films in the same faith based, family friendly manner and this is their first film.
The film stars Michael Joiner, Michael Higginbottom and Louis Gosset Jr.
This is is story of Mac, a police officer whose son is killed in an accident. 17 years later it's evident that he has allowed pain and bitterness to erode his family relationships, his career and left him angry with God.
When he is paired with a new partner, who also happens to be a pastor and a black man, Mac finds himself at the boiling point.

We watched this DVD Sunday night and truly enjoyed it! I recommend it because:
1) it was so nice to watch a movie that wasn't filled with swearing and innuendos.
2) it's faith based. It's nice to hear God mentioned and not as a swear word.
3) It was a really good movie! Bob liked it and Heather and I were both crying at the end.
This movie really brings out the themes of grace and forgiveness, and made me think about how I do with both of them, especially toward people who don't make it easy.

To find out more about the production of the movie or the movie itself, go here.
You can find this video at your favorite Christian store or it can be purchased online at the site above.

You also have a chance to win your own copy! Just leave a comment here and you will be entered to win. I'll draw a name on Thursday night and will then post the winner!

It really is a great film! My husband and I were BOTH sharing a tissue box by the end. :)

Wow! That sounds like a really great movie! (Even if it did bring tears to your eyes, right?)

Kim said...

Just on Sunday I heard they were producing another movie. It was one of the topics of conversation at the lunch table. I'm excited to see it! Would love to win :)

HI Mari, This does sound like a great movie and a great way to reach out to family/friends who aren't believers. Please enter me in your giveaway. Thank you so much for sharing.

I remember hearing about this movie when it came out. It looked very good. I see Terri signed up so I know I don't have much of a chance ;) But I'll try anyway!

Mari said...

Oh, I can't wait to see this one! Count me in.

Sue O said...

It's so hard to find good movies any more. I would love to win this one, but even if I don't, I'm glad to have the recommendation.

Jenni said...

Mari, I would love to have a copy of this movie, it sounds really good. Anything that brings the need for tissue must be good and I love that it's a clean movie with Godly values.

Mickey & I just finally got to see "Fireproof" this past week. When I was at our local Christian bookstore they had it on sale for $5 so I grabbed a copy.

Please put my name in your wonderful drawing. It sure would be nice to see this one soon and not years from now when it might go on sale for $5 :o)

Penny said...

I 100% agree with No. 2. How nice that is. =)

Melissa said...

Sounds like something we'd like!

Patti said...

I thought from the first ad on television about this movie that it sounds like a good movie!

Betty said...

I´m relieved they are still making movies that are curse free. Sounds like a good movie. Will look for it.

le blÖg d'Ötli said...

Brooke said...

if i don't win it, i need to see if our church library has it.

Christina said...

Fireproof was amazing so I can only imagine how good this movie is. Have you seen Karen Kingsbury's "Like Dandelion Dust?" It left me and my daughter in tears also. It seems faith based movies do that, but I love a movie that moves people to tears, truly inspirational.

Saija said...
