FishFlix.com sent the the movie My Son, My Savior to share with you. This story is a great one for your Easter line up. The family friendly video takes you through the life of Jesus from his mothers point of view. You see her reactions to major life events as you watch the life of Jesus unfold before your eyes.
I was a bit worried when I sat down to watch this movie with Monkey as most movies about the life of Jesus get a little too graphic for her sensitive little heart to handle. My Son, My Savior was perfect for family viewing. It showed the life of Jesus in a short but easy to follow story. The low budget of this film is what gave it the charm and simplicity that makes it perfect for families and safe for young sensitive children.
We felt heart break for Mary as Jesus said that everyone that follows him is his family, his sister, his brother, and even his mother. My heart broke for her as she came to realize the story her father had told her from the scriptures about the Messiah being lead to his death like the lamb to the slaughter. My heart broke for her as she wept at her sons feet as death took him from her. I rejoiced with her as her son walked into the room risen from the shadow of death.
Thismovie is a great fit for families but I think it may be best for mothers. A chance to connect personally in your heart with the story of Jesus and build a connection with his mother. You just can’t help but to put yourself into her place and weep for Jesus.
This story of the life of Jesus really helped me connect to him being that I have the heart of a mother. I loved that this movie got the point across without being overly graphic making it a family friendly movie. This movie will become a regular for our family each Easter season.
