I grew up without a father, and nowadays, people have forgotten what it really means to be a parent. Fatherhood is more than just being there to pay the bills or showing up once in a while with a wad of cash. That means nothing to a child who requires your time and attention. I especially love how this movie emphasizes that daughters need their fathers, too! And there's a compelling contemporary storyline to follow! I didn't think I'd see that so well done in a Christian movie. Courageous will always be one of my favorites.
