REVIEW: The Way Home

“The Way Home” with Dean Cain is a moving DVD based on an inspirational true story. Randy and Christal Simpkins find their marriage at a point like so many American families, Dad is busy at work, trying to make a living for his family, and Mom is busy juggling kids, running the household, and sometimes a job. Life can become overwhelming.

On the day the Simpkins are to leave for vacation once again Randy is at work and Christal is packing the van, keeping an eye on Joe, their two year old while the two older boys are in school. When Randy finally makes it home Christal asks him to put Joe in his car seat and to get the last two bags in the house while she shuts the house down. Joey is playing in the driveway with the dog and his dad decides to let him play for a second while he grabs the bags. When he returns Joey is nowhere to be found.

Concern quickly turns to panic when they realize he has vanished. Prayer chains are started and rescue teams are called in. Hundreds of people join in the effort. Will Joey be found? Will Randy and Christal work through this or will it be the straw that broke the camel’s back? Will this bring them closer to God or pull them farther apart? Find the answers to these questions in this inspirational film.

MY THOUGHTS: This is a wonderful film; make sure you have tissue close by. It shows how easy it is to put other things before God and your family, but it also shows how easy they can be taken away! This is a great film for all ages.

I received this DVD free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

until next time... nel
