God Bless the Broken Road (Movie)


I'm so grateful for the opportunity to review this movie.  God Bless the Broken Road revolves around a young mother trying to provide for and raise her young daughter the best she can after the loss of her beloved husband on a tour of duty in Afghanistan.  His death not only puts her in dire financial straits, but it also shatters her faith to the point she no longer goes to church and her heart is so angry towards God.  The strain of her circumstances also takes a toll on her relationship with her daughter and prevents her from moving forward in life until certain events happen that push her towards the road of recovery - and regaining her faith in the Lord.

Heartfelt and a definite tearjerker, God Bless the Broken Road is a wonderful family-friendly movie (for older children due to some battle scenes) that exemplifies how important faith is when we pass through difficult circumstances in our lives.  Faith grounds us so peace can enter in and hope can spring out.  I enjoyed this movie - it made me laugh at a few moments, and it made me cry.  Its message of faith is one that should be viewed by many, and I would highly recommend this film.
