About

Steps of Faith is a lighthearted dramedy about Faith Houston an accountant, who is directed by God to move to a small town to work on a Hippotherapy farm helping children. 

Faith is mocked by her family since she doesn't have a rapport with children or animals and is not a 'devout Christian'. 

Faith decides to follow her heart and move. After she encounters several challenges, she finds herself at the farm in the horse stalls shoveling manure. 
Faith cracks under pressure and leaves after a child is almost injured questioning whether she heard God's voice or not.

Themes

  • Faith: following God's voice, persevering through trials
  • Purpose: walking out your calling
  • Relationships: family values, friendship, love

Steps of Faith is now available on DVD. You can purchase your copy here: Steps Of Faith DVD

My Review

As stated in the 'about' section above, this movie follows Faith in her adventure in hearing and following the call of God on her life. 

While she is obviously a young woman who was brought up in a home with loving Christian parents who faithfully attended church every Sunday, Faith wants something more for her life. More from God. As she begins to pray about her own life, she hears God tell her to move to a small town and work on a hippotherapy farm. 

I love that the main character in this movie feels very real. She is questioning her station in life...questioning God's plan for her life...and wanting answers. And when God gives her the answer to her prayer...a very specific answer...she is met with criticism and doubt from others. 

I've been there more than once in my own life. Seeking after God's voice. Needing and wanting to hear from Him what the next assignment was...and then upon hearing from Him and beginning the process of walking out that calling...the naysayers would push back...sending me back to my knees in prayer asking for confirmation. Faith does the same thing before making the move to the small town. She prays for confirmation. 

As Faith walks out her calling, she encounters trials and things she never bargained for...things that cause her to question her calling. Would her faith be strong enough to carry her through?

The Takeaway

Yes...just like so many of the movies in this genre there is a certain level of predictability. Also, I would prefer the few comedic spots were a bit less cheesy...especially the church ladies in the choir scenes. 

But overall, I still recommend this movie as a good family movie. Getting past the cheesiness in spots and a few less than believable characters, the main characters and storyline really were worthy to be considered good family entertainment. 

I am a big believer in watching movies with our children and teaching them discernment as they watch and this film has some great subjects for family conversations. 

Subjects such as: Hearing from God. How do we hear from God? Does God talk to less than 'perfect' Christians? How can we be sure we are hearing God's voice? Do we obey God or our family? When we follow God does everything get easier? Whoa...lots of fodder for great conversations.

Finally, this film will encourage you and your family to trust that when God calls and we listen, He enables us to accomplish far more than we could ever have imagined.
