Amish Grace

Ya'll are NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!!!!!  My little 'ole blog... no, not Journey to Jia, but an even little'r 'old blog has been read by a member of the Lifetime family.  It's a blog I began to follow a weekly biblestudy I'm in and the poor little thing has been neglected fiercly as of late.  Well not anymore!
Today I got an email from a Lifetime rep telling me about a new movie coming up on Lifetime about the shooting at the Amish school in Pennsylvania a few years back.  She thought I would like to help spread the word on my blog and gave me a code for previewing it.  Say whhhaaa???
I am a big lifetime fan and you can bet I'll be watching it.  It's gonna be one of those that will make you question everything you think you know about yourself.  I can't wait.
Here's the synopsis she sent me and the preview clip.  You can bet we'll be discussing it after the premier.

The peaceful Amish community of Nickel Mines is forever changed when a gunman senselessly takes the lives of five girls in a schoolhouse shooting before taking his own life.

What transpires afterward takes the community by storm, as the media descend on the town and criticize its Amish leaders for their notion of unconditional forgiveness of the shooter and their outreach of support to his widow, Amy Roberts (Tammy Blanchard). Devastated by her daughter’s death, Ida Graber (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) finds herself struggling with her community’s belief in the transcending power of forgiveness. Deeply conflicted and unable to forgive the gunman and his family, Ida is tempted to leave the only life she’s ever known before re-embracing her faith.
The movie is having its world television premiere Sunday, March 28 at 8PM EST/ 5pm PST on Lifetime Movie Network.

Be sure and mark your calendars!  Also, it has Kimberly Williams Paisley in it!  I love her!
