Faith of Our Fathers DVD Review & Giveaway #FAITHOFOURFATHERS #FLYBY

Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”): Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

Chefy and I are big fans of Pure Flix Entertainment.  This is the production company that brought us God's Not Dead and Do You Believe?.  We love Christian movies because we do not have to worry about the language, adult situations and nudity, and the whole family can watch!  Pure Flix has recently released Faith of Our Fathers on DVD and Chefy and I were given the opportunity to review it.

About the movie:
John Paul and Wayne are two young men in search of their fathers.  Problem is...their fathers have been dead for 25 years.  Eddie and Steven are two young men in search of their sons...whom they've never met.  In 1969, Eddie and Steven are with their squad deep in the jungle of Vietnam on a five-day mission to retrieve fallen comrades.  They write letters to their wives, often mentioning their love for their sons, one, who is an infant and one yet to be born.  In 1994, John Paul and Wayne go on a five day road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC to see their fathers' names.  Along the way, reading those letters, they begin to get an understanding of who their fathers were and how they died.  Trials and mishaps, both funny and sad, complicate the road trip for the boys.  The horrors of war and the testing of faith manifest themselves for the young men in Vietnam.  Ultimately, in parallel stories - 25 years apart - the fathers and sons are bound together forever.  
Runtime: 96 minutes
Genre: Drama
Rating: PG-13 (for brief war violence)

Starring: Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Downes, David A.R. White, Rebecca St. James, Si Robertson, Candace Cameron Bure, Scott Whyte, and Sean McGowan.

Special Features of the DVD:
-The Heart of Faith of Our Fathers
-Honoring Father's Day

For the most part, Chefy and I enjoyed the movie.  There happened to be a couple times when I felt the movie dragged a little, or lost the plot line, but that happens with a lot of movies.  We enjoyed the switching of the times from 1969 Vietnam to the present and the parallels between the sons and fathers.  We will watch this movie again and share it with others!

 My granddaddy was a veteran and this movie just gave me greater insight into the struggles of war.  Want to win a copy for yourself?  Simply enter on the rafflecopter form below!  Please note:  Only one entrant per mailing address, per giveaway.

Autumn is probably the best time of the year to visit Arizona. The weather is mild and the crowds are not as bad. This makes it an amazing opportunity for a romantic trip, especially for those who plan to propose.

Best Leather jacket said...

I absolutely love my bomber jacket! Not only is it stylish and trendy, but it's also extremely versatile. I can dress it up for a night out or dress it down for a casual daytime look. The material is durable and keeps me warm during the colder months. I highly recommend investing in a bomber jacket, it's a must-have in any wardrobe.
