We watched such an great movie last weekend that I just had to share it with you.  This movie had all the ingredients of a family feature film with a heart warming story rolled into one.  I need to note that we have a special needs daughter who was riveted to the story from beginning to end.

A Soldier Love Story begins with a single mom (played by Laurie Laughlin) and her 10 year old son moving in with her mom (played by Stephanie Powers).  Just one year  behind a painful divorce, Dana is doing her best to move on with her life and raise her son, Jared.

In a new town and school, Jared attempts to make friends by playing baseball but soon finds that he lacks the skills needed to make the team.  Jared begins sharing his frustrations with his new found pen pal Sergeant Vince Carerra (played by Johnny Messner) through a class writing project.

Vince reaches out to Jared first through writing and then in person to offer some much needed baseball advice. He becomes just the positive male role model Jared needs in light of his biological father’s lack of interest in his young life.  Jared begins not only to love the sport but encourage what would seem to be a spark of romance between his mom and the likable soldier.

This romantic Christian Movie unfolded in a family friendly way.  Our hearts cheered for Jared as he excelled in his new talent as well as sighed with delight when glimmers of affection danced in the eyes of his mom Dana.  Vince’s best friend and Dana’s mom give encouragement and humor all along the way.  The movie ends leaving room for the imagination of the observer.

All in all Soldier Love Story is a clean feel-good family movie.  This #missionarymomma gives Soldier Love Story a full 5 Star Review.
