This Is Our TIme DVD {Review + Giveaway}

I had the opportunity to review This Is Our Time over the weekend. At first, I admit to thinking it was a little "cheesy," but that soon changed. Though the story is about five recent university grads, I found myself to relating to them in several ways, even though I am well passed {ahem} that age. I originally thought I would love this movie because I love university students and did life with so many of them in Canada. But because this movie included so many just regular life events, that we all do or could do at any point in our lives, it struck me as very believable and relate-able. 

I cried through several sections of this movie (don't worry, no spoilers). It was very touching. I certainly know God's call on my life and have heard Him clearly many times. We have recently been through a major change (moving back to the States) due to hearing His call and responding in obedience to Him. But since being here, I have greatly struggled with the purpose for His moving me here. Why am I here? What is my purpose here? I don't have any definitive answers quite yet, but I trust Him and know they will come. I know He has led us here for a specific reason (and probably multiple reasons), so I continue seeking His face and waiting on Him. 

And whether you are in high school or university, have recently graduated or are even older than I am (haha!), I recommend this movie. See below for giveaway info.

  2. We think of you guys often. Always praying for God to reveal His purposes and plan as we seek to follow, not always understanding but having faith.

  4. Scarlett,

    Thanks for your great review of THIS IS OUR TIME. It was a great gift from God to write and direct. We have also created a four week study guide as a FREE resource for churches, youth and college organizations. Pure Flix will be posting it later this week. I hope it helps everyone take a closer look at what God is calling them to be!

    Blessings,

    Lisa Arnold

  6. Thanks for this chance - it sounds like a great movie! What's on my plate right now is that I am sick - I have MS and it's active right now and I am trying to keep up with my two daughters who are 12 and 10. They are growning up and I am afraid apart from God. Well atleast one of them. Please pray for them! Thanks!
