Lionsgate and Red Five Entertainment present “The Way Home”

“Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”) stars as Randy Simpkins, a husband and father torn between the demands of his job and commitment to his family. Asked by his wife Christal to watch their two-year-old son Joe for a few minutes, Randy is distracted by work and Joe disappears. Racked by guilt, Randy joins Christal in a desperate search for their missing son alongside hundreds of others from their church and community. Randy and Christal’s strained marriage must now weather the ultimate test—the potential loss of a child.

THE WAY HOME is the story of Randy’s powerful spiritual journey back to love, faith and a Godly understanding of what must always take first priority in a man’s life—his family.”

My Thoughts-
This movie truly touched my heart. As a parent it got me thinking abut how much time do I really spend with my children. when the movie ended I even wanted to go and wake them up and hold onto them and whisper “I love you” in their ears over and over again.
“The Way Home” has two meanings in this TRUE story. The first being little 2 year old Joe finding his way home and the second and most important is Randy finding his way back into his families life. Before Joe went missing Randy was always busy with his work, even a few minutes before his little boy disappeared he was focused on work rather then getting his family ready for their vacation.
I was also moved by the faith and support shown in the movie. My church the past year has been talking about “family loving deeply” and the Christian community (and the town) truly showed what it means to be a family loving deeply. Perfect strangers were showing up to pray and to search for Joe. Prayer chains were growing like crazy all over the US.

I would recommend this movie to all families, you will be deeply moved by this story and I would hope you would find the love of Christ through it and that your perspective on your family will change to become a deeper connection with each other.
