We love to watch movies in our house. This is especially true since we ditched the cable box and have to rely more on DVDs as our internet is metered so that streaming shows isn’t happening often. I was thrilled to have the chance to review a new inspirational Christian movie from Pure Flix, This is Our Time.
The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”
This is Our Time is available nationwide at Family Christian Stores and most Christian online and brick-and-mortar retail stores nationwide. The suggested retail price is $19.99

My Thoughts on This is Our Time : An Inspirational Christian Movie
I really enjoyed watching this film. I did screen it on my own, but plan to watch it again soon with the older boys. The message is quite powerful and really resonated with me. For me, the message is that God has a plan for our lives! How awesome is that? The challenge as Christians is remembering that fact even if our current situation seems awful or outside what our own dreams might be.
That message is driven home in the movie by the character Ethan as he sees his rejection from grad school as a personal affront and wonders why he’s ‘stuck’ helping run his family’s business. However, as is true to real life, an event happens that has him realizing that he needed to be at that place at that time.
Along with the overall message about everything being in God’s time to His plan, This is Our Time also introduces a worthwhile charity to the viewers. Embrace A Village is a ministry caring for those afflicted with leprosy and their families. With all the medical advances, some might find it shocking that this ostracizing disease still has a strong foothold in some areas of the world. I am very grateful that there are those willing to continually reach out and help those in need when most in society want to remain separate from them.
While this is definitely a family friendly film, I would say that the younger kids wouldn’t find it interesting or entertaining. However, I would recommend it for some junior high kids and definitely those in high school. One final comment…if you tend to tear up when bad things happen, make sure to have some tissues at the ready!
