I saw Overcomer in the theater and it was such a wonderful, inspiring movie! It was #1 Inspirational Family Film of 2019 and I can understand why.  Like all the Kendrick Brother films, I had tears in my eyes several times because the story and the characters are so heartwarming.  I also love how they always emphasize the love God has for us and that He is always there for us, no mater what.

I love how they emphasize praying about everything and everyone. It's something I love to see encouraged as prayer is so vital to the Christian life. It brings us together as family and friends like nothing else.

This movie shows what happens when we invest in others and do things that we may not necessarily want to do but are being called to do. When we do things to the best of our ability and love others in the same way, amazing things happen!

It's so wonderful to see what happens when we care about others and try our hardest to love them even when they may be unlovable at times. Encouragement and love to others can make such a huge difference!

As I said, be prepared to shed a few tears, be inspired, and be reminded of how much you have and can overcome all life's circumstances when you have God by your side.

I highly recommend this as the perfect Christmas gift for anyone! In fact, get one for yourself as it will end up being one the best loved Christmas gifts you or anyone could ever receive! Overcomer has a 98% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes and I rate this move with 5 stars!
