Our family has been dealing with a few very personal situations that can be completely overwhelming at times and lead us to question our faith in moments of weakness, but rest assured that our God is good, ALWAYS by our side and has perfect timing! For our family, the timing of OVERCOMER being released is uncanning and I believe this is just one the ways God is trying to reach us to give us answers to questions we’ve had!
Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth … until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey. Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humor and a ton of heart, the Kendrick Brothers return to theaters with OVERCOMER, their newest feature following Facing the Giants, Fireproof, Courageous and the #1 box-office hit, War Room. The inspiring family film stars Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Shari Rigby, Cameron Arnett and introduces Aryn Wright-Thompson. Opening nationwide TODAY, August 23, OVERCOMER dares to leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream and asks the question: “What do you allow to define you?”
“The movie OVERCOMER is about identity, an issue that everyone deals with. Everyone needs to answer the questions: “Who is God?” and “Who am I?”, and the scriptures deal with both of those things. When a person discovers who they are in Christ, it opens up an understanding of how they can live that out in a daily basis in what they do in their relationships with others.”, said Stephen Kendrick.
“Cross Country is a very difficult sport. From the time you start, you do not stop or pause until you cross the finish line. And in many regards, that’s like our life; that’s our journey of faith.”, said Alex Kendrick.
“Being an overcomer means there is pain, discomfort, inconvenience, life’s tough, and yet you have joy and peace and all the stuff that you can only have if there is an anchor in your soul,” said Priscilla Shirer.
I am so excited to watch the movie OVERCOMER with my family. I am huge fan of the Kendrick Brothers! I love how they deal with topics in a biblical manner, yet appeal to the entire family! Their last movie, War Room, personally touched my heart and left me wanting that deeper connection to God. It left me craving to have such a powerful prayer life that I forget what time it is and realize that I’ve been praying for an hour. I can’t wait to see what God puts on my heart after watching this!
BONUS: The Kendrick Brothers have prepared and made available to you two free PDF’s that might help initiate a family discussion after this movie:
