"This Is Our Time" DVD Review & GIVEAWAY! (5/1) *Closed*

*I was provided a copy of this DVD for my honest review and was not compensated for this post in any other way.
 
About the film:
"This Is Our Time", distributed by Pure Flix, follows the post-collegiate lives of five friends connected by their strong belief in God who all long to make a meaningful difference in the world. But when tragedy strikes the close-knit group, their friendship and their faith are tested in ways they never imagined.
 
This is an inspirational film about what it really means, and what it really takes, to follow the call of God in your life. “The experiences the characters in THIS IS OUR TIME face are the kinds of real-life ups and downs, successes and devastation, all of us encounter in living life,” said Lisa Arnold, the film’s writer, director and co-producer. “I wanted to tell a story that would resonate with young people just stepping out into the world to make their mark that would help them see that no matter the circumstances they face, God is always with them, loving them, guiding them.”

The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
 
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”



My Review:
This Is Our Time has a storyline that is really easy to fall into and enjoy watching.  I love the interaction between the friends.  It seems quite natural, almost as if they're such good friends in real life. There were times where I laughed at their little jokes between one another and other times where I cried when life got a little rough and they wondered what God's plans were through that situation.  It truly is a wonderful movie and very inspiring!

The main message of the movie has to do with following God in His purpose for our lives.  I have to admit that I often wonder if I'm doing what God meant for me to do.  I don't doubt that I was meant to be a stay-at-home mom through the kids' early years, but now that the kids are in school I often wonder if I'm suppose to be doing more outside the home.  It's something that I pray about often.  For now, I find contentment in the fact that I'm blessed to be available for my family when they need me :-).
 
This Is Our Time would be a wonderful gift for those graduating from college!  With jobs being hard to find, I can see that many grads may not be doing what they planned to do, which would make this movie a great fit for them!

Buy It!
This Is Our Time releases on DVD, for $19.99, and Blu-Ray, for $22.99, on Tuesday, April 16. It will be available nationwide at Family Christian Stores and most Christian online and brick-and-mortar retail stores nationwide.
