If you have been reading long, you know that we have had our moments of crying for help, hope and healing. With all of the troubles that Jeremy had back in 2013 with his ulcerative colitis and ostomy surgery we had our faith tested over and over again. Since that time we have felt more secure in our faith and know that even in our darkest hour, God gives us hope. Every day I find myself coming back to my faith and the hope I have in God. I know that even at my darkest times I can lean on that hope!
Last weekend, Jeremy and I got to screen a new movie called “Where Hope Grows”. When I first read about this movie I knew it would be a perfect Saturday night in for the hubs and me. We are always looking for new, inspirational movies for our weekend date nights after the kids go to bed and I must say, this is one of my favorites in a long time!
We settled in for our evening and we were both in agreement that it was a great movie by the end. “Where Hope Grows” will release to theaters on May 15th so make sure you check out your theater for movie times – it will be totally worth the babysitter to head out this weekend!
“Where Hope Grows” is all about two people who changed one another’s lives for the better. Produce is a boy who works in the local marketplace in the produce section, he happens to have Down Syndrome. He is a very smart, funny, happy and most importantly kind young man who befriends a former major league baseball player turned alcoholic named Calvin. Once the two meet they have a connection. As the movie continues the connection grows.
Through out the movie I was laughing and crying. The writing and acting in this movie was so on point. I felt like we were living through the ups and downs of the movie with Produce and Calvin. Calvin asks Produce what his secret is, why is he so joyful and happy. The secret was the hope that Produce had in his faith. Without even trying, Produce saved Calvin from continuing a destructive life he was living. Not only was Produce a source of hope for Calvin but Calvin showed compassion and love to Produce even though others in the town saw Produce as a nobody.
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing a young man with Down Syndrome portrayed as an individual that could do anything he wanted and also as a strong figure in his faith. While we all have obstacles to overcome, ours was our 2013 medical scares, we can all leave those obstacles with hope in our hearts.
Check out the Official Trailer here.
Looks great right? A movie that is good for the soul.
Where do you find hope?
