Movie Review: The Preacher’s Son

Movie review

Bishop T.K. Wilson, his wife & two children are a respectable family in their community – Yet the Wilson kids are fighting temptations & their son Dante has thoughts other than taking over his fathers church.

The Preacher’s Son is  redemption, hypocrisy, forgiveness, un-forgiveness, hope, judgement, and despair all rolled into one beautiful story.  This is a must see movie for all Christians, especially those who struggle with worrying about what other persons think. It is a cautionary tale for Churches and Christians all over the globe.  I honestly do not know where to start with this one, but one thing I know is the movie hit the nail on the head

Movie Review: The Preacher’s Son

Women Can Lead Lives of Quiet Desperation Too. #motownmom

“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation,” goes Thoreau’s oft-quoted line from Walden. “What is called resignation is confirmed desperation.” This fits neatly into the category of lines from literature guaranteed to make me roll my eyes—not because Thoreau is wrong, necessarily, but because of how tightly we often cling to his rightness
