The Lost Medallion offers hope to children

Today folk all over America are praying for the unborn -- praying against the endless slaying of unborn children. Others are thinking of all the children born and then rejected or placed in undeserving situations. Foster children are by no means the last on the list. Au contraire! Foster children are like orphans in the heart of God. In essence, they are orphans. And they need love and encouragement. Every day.

The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone is a story within a story -- a story recounted to foster children -- a story which offers them hope and teaches them what really matters in life...truth, friendship, love, self-sacrifice, hope... It is the tale of a crazy adventure that brings two children into a realm where they are forced to develop their integrity -- and their purpose.

The Lost Medallion will appear in theaters nationwide on March 1st (my birthday -- just sayin'). You don't wanna miss it.

Watch the trailer of The Lost Medallion and read my full review in The San Diego Examiner here.  Or here in Assist News Service.

The Reason

A violent storm splits apart the cross outside St. Thomas’ Church in a small Michigan town, causing a stir within the community.  Although the damage seems too severe to repair, several people want to try to repair the cross. They are compelled to give it their best shot—as if trying to fix the brokenness caused by the storms in their own lives. 

But no one’s life is more shattered than Brooke’s, a single mom who discovers that her young son, Alex, is on death’s door. No one has it that bad. Not Zach, even though he hides a heavy past that weighs him down daily. Not Carla, the perpetual “loser” (or so she thinks). Not even Pastor Jim who is blind.  No one can remove Brooke’s heavy cross, much as they try to do what they can.

But there is one who can do more than most—Kenneth the carpenter. He seemed to have access to miracles. He repaired the cross alone, in seconds. Just like that!

Kenneth knows God’s Word deeply and possesses deep insight into people. He just might know The Reason behind all the commotion…and be able to usher in some much-needed healing. But will he? Or is he waiting for everyone to “only believe”?
