Three Hearts Review and GIVE AWAY!

I have another absolutely wonderful movie to tell you about.  Three Hearts is an inspiring tear-jerker that will have you longing to do more for others.  It is compelling and I'm so glad I took the time to watch it. 

About Three Hearts:

A passionate team of people work to save the lives of three Mongolian children with life-threatening heart defects.

Graduating college senior, Cissie Graham Lynch, granddaughter of evangelist Billy Graham, takes on an internship at Samaritan’s Purse working with the Children’s Heart Project. This project is dedicated to saving the lives of children by providing medical procedures that aren’t available in many countries. Cissie is charged with supervising the arrival and surgeries of three Mongolian children suffering from fatal congenital heart defects.

But the task is not easy and filled with unexpected challenges.  Cissie balances responsibilities as a newly married wife to a professional football player and her tasks with the internship.  Meanwhile the Children’s Heart team turns to a Texas family who travels to Mongolia for the adventure of a lifetime to help bring the children to San Antonio for their surgeries.  In Texas, two host families make sacrifices to care for these children and their mothers, while a team of doctors and nurses volunteer their time only to stare directly into the face of life and death. How far would you go to save a life?

It’s a fight for survival, a fight of faith, and a fight for a new life for these three hearts.

This is a thought provoking movie as it describes the lives of three families from Mongolia.  Each family has a child in need of a life-saving operation that is not available in their home country.  In steps these caring and motivated individuals to help these kids the treatments they need. 

I was laughing and crying throughout the movie.  It is well done and one that churches might like to keep on hand.  By the end of the movie I was so attached to these families that I was sad to see the movie end.  I wanted to know all about them and know how their lives turned out.  I was humbled by the sacrifices of the host families; awed by their love and generosity.

This looks like a great movie, too! My daughter is most generous. One day we went through a drive-through for some lunch and she handed a $20 Starbucks gift card to the guy who took our order because he was having a bad day. She gives and gives...

My Grandma Jean is the most generous person I know. She is the type of person that ALWAYS puts others first and I am so blessed to have had her be a part of my life these past 34 years. She taught me, even before I was a Christian, the importance of putting the needs of others above our own (of course with a healthy balance). My heart hurts as the Army has taken us away from our home state for the past 9 years - and I miss hear dearly. Right now I live in Germany and hope to get to see her before she leaves this Earth to be with the Lord. She is the true epitome of being the hands and feet of Jesus.

This looks like a great movie! Thank you for spotlighting it and for the review.

Someone who is generous...I would have to say my husband. Every week he takes the car and fills it with gas for me so I don't run out of fuel while transporting our children to their activities. I so appreciate his thoughtfulness!

This movie looks awesome!

As to who I think is generous, I would have to say my parents. They are always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needs it and to share whatever they have with those in need. They are great examples to me of how the Lord would like us to live. :)

I think my dad is one of the most generous men I know. He freely gives from his time, talent and treasure all the time so others can benefit.
