Brief description from the website:

Restoring their faith in God and in Life.
Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church's beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.
Our thoughts:

A family-friendly movie.  No need to worry what the next word out of someone's mouth might be.  No need to worry that you will have to quickly hide your child's eyes or flip the channel. 

This is a feel-good movie that deals with some tough issues such as divorce, teen rebellion, greed, and accountability.  The catch-phrase of the movie is "WWJD".  As most of you know, "WWJD" represents "What would Jesus do?"  And that is the question asked throughout the movie.  Along the way, with gentle wise leading from a woodcarver, a family learns to make their decisions not based on their feelings of anger, greed, or betrayal.  But to make their decisions based on the simple question, "What would Jesus do?"

I recommend this family-friendly movie.
