Peggy I am so glad you enjoyed this post. And thank you so much for stopping by. Be and stay…
“And indeed, faith can become so strong that it can move a mountain.”
Synopsis: After hearing her preacher say faith can move mountains, Sara Hopkins takes God at his word. She starts praying and what happens next…Well, you have to be there.
Talking with her grandfather Sam (Peter Coyote) at her brother’s soccer game, his team doesn’t seem to be winning. When she decides to pray Danny scores, but the team doesn’t win because Brauner on the opposing team cheats his way into a penalty kick.
After the game, they go up to their grandfather’s house where Sara (Austyn Johnson) wants to go fishing at the lake—something strange happens…She finds a dead bird. Her brother wants to bury it but she tells her brother that maybe the bird isn’t dead and if they pray he will come back to life. She tells him “We have to have faith in miracles.” While her brother Danny (Luke Harmon) and his girlfriend Cindy (Tommi Rose) go to a different area of the lake to fish she prays the entire time. They come back with enough fish for dinner. Cindy asks Sara if she caught anything. Right then she sees a vision of God and asks them if they can see Him—They can’t. Suddenly a brisk wind comes and the bird flies away. Was it the breath of God? She tells her grandfather about the experience who tells her they need to keep it between themselves because everyone is not as smart as they are.
What would you do if God revealed Himself to you and nobody saw Him but you? Would you spread the good news or keep it to yourself because of what people would think?
Sara shares her experience with her best friend Mark Miller (Paul-Mikél Williams) who she asks not to say anything, but he spills the beans. The confrontations and incidences that follow are for the record. And if a picture is worth a thousand words then there were a lot of words spoken that you could only see.
What would you do if you woke up one morning and a lot of sick people were on your lawn seeking you out? Would you ignore them and just go about your normal business day or would you help them—especially if your life was on the line?
The plots in this storyline are very simple, a little girl who believes in miracles, parents who don’t know what to think, and a bitter skeptical doctor in a town that needs hope. Yes, this movie has an air of predictability but I think it’s based on rooting for the underdog.

We give The Girl Who Believes In Miracles
This movie, in a lot of ways, reminds me of I Believe. Now I truly understand what Jesus meant when He said, “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3) This is a phenomenal family film that all can watch and all can walk away with some very good life lessons. This is a must see and if you’ve seen it before please watch it again. Perhaps if a lot more of us had Sara’s attitude and passion not only could we see more miracles but even get a glimpse of God.
