King's Faith - A Review and Giveaway

Eighteen foster homes. Nine arrests. One life-changing moment.
After Brendan King’s life spiraled to rock bottom, the teen found hope in a new relationship with Christ while serving time in a juvenile penitentiary. Recently released from prison, Brendan finds solace in the foster home of a couple struggling with suppressed grief.
As the city-bred teen enrolls at a suburban high school, he finds support from a group of believers. Yet the bonds of his old way of life—and the gang that wants to know where he hid their stash on a long-ago night—are strong. In his darkest moment, Brendan found faith. Now he must decide if it’s worth the price to hold on to it.

 I watched this movie with my husband and teen-age children.  My mom, who just happened to be in town visiting, was also able to enjoy a movie night with us.  This movie is rated PG-13 for drug use and some violence, but I found it appropriate for my 14 and 11 year olds. 

King's Faith is a story about a young man who has spent his life in and out of foster homes... 18 foster homes.  He has made bad choices and paid his dues, including jail time.  As the movie begins, Brendan King is now a Christian who is trying to make a fresh start and trying to make good choices.  Unfortunately, his past comes back to haunt him as his former gang comes after him and demands to know where he hid their stash long ago. 

This movie covers some of the issues that teens may face, either themselves or with someone close to them... serious topics such as drugs, gangs, foster care, and abortion.  It encourages teens to rely on God and to turn to those they can trust, in times of great trial.  King's Faith reminds us that God is willing to forgive us, no matter how horrible our sin or crime may seem.  We, as adults, are also reminded that God has entrusted us with these children to love them and encourage them and point them to God.

Life is about forgiveness and second chances.  We shouldn't be too quick to judge others, as everyone has a story and a struggle... and no one but that person and God knows the whole story.  Be patient and be kind.
