I love this documentary. As a newly wed and starting to think about raising a family I sincerely worry about the way society is moving. I'm 25 and I realize something is not right with the "daily grind" that literally leads no where. My husband and I hope to one day emulate this family (maybe not with that many children ;) but definitely the simplicity and family centered ways they live their daily lives. I also love the traditional aspect of this family. I have always been of the thought that women nowadays have been lied to about the corporate ladder and working outside the home is how women are empowered.... As a college educated woman who works a job I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I am happiest when I am at home doing "woman's" work. Working outside the home is miserable and is just another reason the simple life calls to me. Now, those who enjoy the corporate rat race that's fine but not all women find it desirable. If you are of christian beliefs or just really love the idea of a traditional family focused on loving each-other and self sustainability you will LOVE this documentary.
This is one of the most inspiring and encouraging DVDs I've seen in years. There is a gentleness and humility about this family that one rarely sees these days. It was also a blessing to see the mother and some of the little girls wearing the prayer coverings, and they all dressed so modestly. I would love to hear what has happened to this dear family since the making of this DVD.
You will not regret buying this movie! Definitely watch it with the whole family! An inspring story of a father coming home to be the spiritual leader of his family as God commands and, by grace and prayer (and the support of his wife!!), succeds with glorious results. A beautiful picture of what a Christian family should look like, no matter where you live.
This is a wonderful documentary of a family that listened to God's calling and is reaping the rewards of living out a life of service to each other and others.
This is a documentary about this family and I love it. I don't know if I could do it, we all may have to do it eventually but this to me is great. We all need families like this maybe there would be less violence in the world.
