I have been homeless due to domestic violence, so I could understand the need for a good blanket. One of the most cherished things my children and I received during that time was a homemade blanket and crocheted booties. There was something about this act of kindness that gave us hope, and we were able to face an uncertain future. The blanket was like “home”. This is why I loved that they gave blankets to the needy in this movie!
How have you reacted when faced with the impossible? I loved that this movie addresses how life can be overwhelming sometimes, but when we turn our focus to God, He not only transforms our hearts and minds, but can use us to help others. Even when we are struggling ourselves!
Phillip’s Wish is an organization founded by a little boy who saw a need in the world and decided to do something about it.
“Mommy,” he said. “Are you warm?” “Yes, baby, I’m warm.” “Is Daddy warm?” he asked. And then the then 7-year-old son asked about everyone else – the people on the street and in the shelters. His mom told him the truth: “No, not everyone is warm.”
This movie is an incredibly heartwarming story that will transform your heart to serve those around you.
