Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Synopsis: Growing up impoverished in small-town Texas, young Rickey Hill shows an extraordinary ability for hitting a baseball, despite being burdened by leg braces from a degenerative spinal disease. His concerned pastor father (DENNIS QUAID) discourages Rickey from playing baseball to protect him from injury, and to have him follow in his footsteps and become a preacher. As a young man, Rickey (COLIN FORD) becomes a baseball phenomenon. His desire to participate in a try-out for a legendary major league scout divides the family and threatens Rickey’s dream of playing professional baseball. Based on a true story, THE HILL is directed by Jeff Celentano and also stars JOELLE CARTER, country music singer and songwriter RANDY HOUSER, Golden Globe nominee BONNIE BEDELIA, and SCOTT GLENN.
Summer time is running out with back to school in full swing. However a good summer can't be complete without a great baseball movie. "The Hill" will be released August 25th so be sure to check your theatre! If there is a drive in theater near you I would see if this film will be there before they close for the season!
Thank you to Frontgate Media for giving me a free screening of this movie so I could give my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own, I was not paid for this review.
A baseball movie combined with a true story is what captured my attention to this movie. Rickey Hill has a fantastic story of overcoming the doubters but also recognizing healing. It was clear to see there were many struggles for the Hill family, however the family drama is also paired with faith elements. As a believer I enjoy seeing more films that display Christian principles. With that said it was also hard to see how the father/pastor failed in a few areas. One area in the movie that I found frustrating was Ricky's pastor/father who lacked in faith to believe in his own son! He never fully supported his son till at the end when he finally had a heart check that led him to humility and fully supporting his son. I can understand that male and father role of wanting to protect your son but he lacked the ability to trust God with healing him and seeing a passion in his son that was a God given talent. I am curious if the way his dad was portrayed was accurate or just to make the movie more dramatic.
I am also a special education teacher and part of my mission in life is to help people see they have value and gold in them even if they have a struggle or something to overcome. I like to push people to do their best and help support their dreams so watching this movie really hit those same feels. I found myself thinking "you can do this" "let's go" "Go God Go" and so many more.
Make some time to hear this neat story! Get ready to see a dream become reality for Ricky!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
