We loved this movie so much!! It’s full of hope and courage. Penguin came just at the right time, and reminded this family that no matter how lost, fragile or damaged we feel, accepting the love of others, and loving them back helps make us whole.

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Psalms 34:18 NIV
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NIV
