Last weekend Daniel and I took the kids to see
Our Uncle Clark is in it and is even on the poster! Isaac leaned over to me during the movie and said, "We need to buy this and it can be a Sunday movie". Indeed we will. It is the story of the Willie and Martin handcart companies and the trials they faced in their journey west. But more than that, it's a story of Miracles. 17 of them actually. It's got humor. It's got romance (which made Ruthie giggle many times). It's got intensity. And really it's just an account of real people who experienced real and life saving miracles as they journeyed west to be free to practice their religion the way they were commanded and taught. It's a family movie and can be a great catapult to talking about pioneers and the early Saints. And of course, there are the Miracles!
You gotta see it!
