A Mile In His Shoes Review and DVD Giveaway!

A couple of weeks ago I received an email asking if I would be interested in reviewing A Mile in His Shoes.  I clicked on the link to watch a preview for this true baseball story and knew that I had to request it!

A mile in his shoes

About Mile in His Shoes:
From the director of Angels In the Outfield comes an inspiring story about a special boy with an amazing gift, and the coach who believed. Dean Cain and Luke Schroder star in the gmc movie based on the book The Legend of Mickey Tussler.

This movie has received the Dove Seal from the Dove foundation. I agree that this is a family movie. I am very sensitive when watching movies.  At least one scene caused some discomfort. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to shout-“no, don’t go. It’s a trap.  You’ll get hurt.” I was a little (ok more than a little) worried about how much violence we would see.  But the scene was handled so well that we saw only a hint. We knew what was going to happen but we did not have to see it.  We only knew that it took place.  I have no qualms about my sensitive children watching the movie again and again.

My daughter made it a point to tell me that she liked the fact that “they weren’t in your face about Christianity.  They lived it.  They didn’t just preach it.” She shared with me that she wasn’t sure she was going to like the movie but she enjoyed it and plans on watching it again with friends. 

I love baseball.  It is my favorite sport.  I was drawn to the movie because it was baseball.  It’s a true story and a great one, but baseball?  Yea that made it even better.

I think y’all would enjoy it, too and I get to give away a copy to one of my readers!
