I was finally able to get my hands on Letter to God sit and watch and of course cry my eyes out. This movie has truly touched my heart and my life. Based on a true story, this movie broke my heart, gave me hope, and refreshed my faith all at the same time.
Starring Ralph Waite, Bailee Madison, Maree Cheatham, and Robyn Lively.

A heartfelt tale of inspiration, hope and redemption, “Letters to God” is the story of what happens when one boy’s walk of faith crosses paths with one man’s search for meaning—the resulting transformational journey touches the lives of everyone around them.

Tyler Doherty (Tanner Maguire) is an extraordinary eight-year-old boy. Surrounded by a loving family and community, and armed with the courage of his faith, he faces his daily battle against cancer with bravery and grace. To Tyler, God is a friend, a teacher and the ultimate pen pal—Tyler’s prayers take the form of letters, which he composes and mails on a daily basis.

The letters find their way into the hands of Brady McDaniels (Jeffrey S.S. Johnson), a beleaguered postman standing at a crossroads in his life. At first, he is confused and conflicted over what to do with the letters. But the decision he ultimately makes becomes a testament to the quiet power of one boy’s shining spirit and unshakeable faith.
If you haven't yet taken a moment to watch this film I Highly recommend that you do, it's a wonderful film and very inspirational.

So readers, let me ask you this: If you knew you were about to die, how would you live your life? On second thought, how are you living your life right now? You never really know when your last day is going to be. God makes that decision. We should all live our life like we are dying. We should enjoy each and every part of it, and cherish what we have, and who we get to spend time with. Life, and the time we get to spend here on earth is precious. Use it wisely! And don't forget your letters to God.
 ps. Bailee Madison the little girl who plays 'Sam' is the cutest thing I ever laid my eyes on.
