The Woodcarver DVD Review & Giveaway

*** Giveaway Now Closed ***
Congratulations to Stephanie!

I have a great movie to tell you about, The Woodcarver. 

About the Movie:
Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church's beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.

My review
I really enjoyed this movie.  I love that it incorporated the theme WWJD (What would Jesus Do) and that it emphasized the power of prayer and the power of a transformed life.  Life is not about never making mistakes but what you do afterward to make them right, love that!  John Ratzenberger is amazing.  The role of Ernest is very different than those I have seen him in before but he plays the part well, a man of God with a quiet spirit and some bitterness of his own to work through.  The most difficult parts of the movie for me were the dysfunctional family scenes.  There was a lot of yelling, especially from the father and that was difficult.  However, the power of change from the beginning to the end was amazing and I love books and movies that have reconciliation at the end.  I think this movie is definitely worth watching and it has great underlying and overarching Christian messages for the whole family.
