Overcomer Movie Is A Movie That I Want To See

What do you allow to define you?

“Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255:  “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”):  Opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation.  I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.


 I think most of us struggle with identity, asking the question, "who am I?" or "who is God?" I know these are questions that I think about a lot and the movie Overcomer is one that I can relate to. It is also a movie that I am excited to see. I saw the previews for Overcomer a couple of months ago and it drew my attention right away for many reasons. The movie uses a sport that I enjoy and one that my older boys have participated in high school. My middle son is currently on the cross-country team at the Merchant Marine Academy. Then the producers throw in another issue that I can relate to, running with asthma, and this movie gets me.

  A week does not go by without me thinking about my identity and I always think of how God has given me the job of raising my boys to become men of God and to succeed in their paths of lives. Raising kids can be like cross-country and so can choosing to follow what God wants us to do. I really like how Alex Kendrick, the co-writer and director of the movie Overcomer, compares cross-country to our life.



“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



The movie Overcomer is about helping people discover their identity. I love that this movie shows that through scripture we can answer the questions of 'Who is God?’, and ‘Who am I?’

 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  (producer and co-writer.)




 My husband and I have enjoyed the other movies that the Kendrick brothers have written: FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and WAR ROOM so we are excited to see this movie. This will be a movie that I will be bringing my younger boys with as this is a family film that will help them to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ. The older of the two boys is also a runner while the younger one struggles with asthma so these two common things may help them learn even more from the movie.

SYNOPSIS
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 suddenly 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 ArynWright-Thompson. Opening nationwide on August 23, OVERCOMER dares to leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and asks the question: what do you allow to define you?
