A Mile In His Shoes--DVD Review and Giveaway

I have a new family friendly movie to tell you all about called, "A Mile in His Shoes."

Only a miracle can help baseball coach Arthur "Murph" Murphy (Dean Cain) and his losing minor league baseball team.  As Murph sets out to recruit new  talent for the team, he stumbles upon Mickey (Luke Schroder), a young farmer with an incredible pitcher's arm.  However, Mickey's parents are reluctant to allow him to join the team because he has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism.  Murph convinces Mickey's parents that life in the minor league will benefit their unique son, but he doesn't realize just how much his new recruit will help the team's game and, more importantly, their spirit.  Based on the true story, A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.


  Those who read my blog know I am a big fan of family friendly movies, and this movie did not disappoint.  The trailer makes it look like this movie is about an underdog team that begins to win, but it is so much more than that.  I like how the movie portrays the topic of Asperger's Syndrome in a respectful way and in a way that shows kids (and adults) that being different than other people is okay and everyone should be treated with kindness and respect. I also like how the movie shows different kinds of growth in Mickey, the coach, the teammates, and Mickey's parents.

You can purchase this movie at  Amazon or ChristianBook

The last movie I watched was "Bambi" with my family. My twin girls are 4 and they loved the little animals, but the forest fire was too intense for them and we had to fast forward past that part.

The last movie I saw was "A Smile As Big As The Moon." It's about a special education teacher from Grand Rapids, MI who wanted his students to be able to experience Space Camp. It premiered in my home town on Monday, and we got to meet the teacher, his coteacher, and the woman from Space Camp who helped get everything started.

The last movie that I watched was a movie on AMC with Glenn Ford as a FBI agent. It was an old movie that was on in the middle of the night and I cannot remember the name of it. Actually, it was pretty good.
