We began our journey reading the whole Bible (Revolutionary!) and then we’re introduced to the books Betrothed and Beloved, also by the Waller Family. Recently in one of the books we heard about this documentary and have watched it as a three generation family. My son in law watched it twice. We love the documentary, would love to see even more, and will be looking to serve through volunteering with Hayovel in Israel.
Thank you for your review, Tina! We're so glad that you enjoyed 'A Journey Home'.

Our family of all ages enjoyed this amazing documentary! We were inspired and moved as we watched it. It has touched our hearts beyond words and we believe this has been used to show us some wonderful, timeless principles that the Father is already showing us. Thank you for all you are doing for His Kingdom, Waller family, and we praise Him for your lives and service for the kingdom and ultimately the King! May He bless you and keep you, now and always!
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.
