Stand Strong by Illumina8ed Productions
Matt and Tara Webster appear to have it all, a beautiful home in a nice neighborhood, a good paying job, a boat, jet skis, motorcycles and money. That is until their credit card debit and materialistic lifestyle catch up to them. After having all of her credit cards decline at dinner one night, Matt finally tells Tara that they are losing the house. But when Matt loses his job, the Webster family finally hits rock bottom.
Matt's mother, brother Josh and his family are strong Christians that have been praying for Matt and Tara for some time. Josh and wife Tara offer to allow Matt's family to live with them while they get back on their feet. Through many struggles and much pride, Matt and Tara learn the importance of Biblical priorities.
There were many positive elements in the movie. The family learned the importance of relationships over possessions. Josh learns to lead his family, Tara's heart is turned to training and teaching her children through homeschool and the children's hearts are turned to their parents. The Webster family learns how to begin a family business and live within their means.
Matt and Josh's mother is a Godly woman who is constantly praying for their families. The family is shown praying before meals and praying for each other.
In the beginning of the movie, the Webster children are very worldly. The children are disrespectful to the parents and the parents are shown, on more than one occasion, arguing about money. The parents eventually gain the hearts of the children and the children become respectful but in speech and in conduct.
The Redman family really enjoyed the movie Stand Strong. There were plenty of funny parts to keep the little ones laughing and even us older ones. The message of the movie came through loud and clear. We would encourage families to see this movie!
