The Sound of a Dirt Road  

The Sound of a Dirt Road

After losing his parents as a little boy, John Crowe is mentored and raised by his godly grandfather on the family farm. Learning to love the Lord and the land owned by his family for over 150 years, John grows up and decides to attend a seminary to become a pastor. Unfortunately, he is forced to drop out early after his grandfather's death, and he returns home to become a humble, hard-working farmer with a quiet faith. When he's not caring for his livestock or maintaining the ranch, John spends time reading God's Word or attending his church, where an erroneously-driven, young preacher named Jeremiah Stillwell is trying to seek the available pastorate.

A tale of love and conflict begins when a Christian family, the Sowers, arrives in town. Their young, attractive daughter Ellen becomes the interest of both John and Jeremiah, and trouble ensues, as the prideful, self-serving Jeremiah attempts to dissuade John from pursuing Ellen. To the dismay of Jeremiah, Ellen only has eyes for John, and they soon marry. Not long afterward, Ellen contracts a case of life-threatening tuberculosis. With no health insurance, John faces the difficult decision of selling the family farm to pay for the medical bills and wrestles with the fact that he may lose his new bride. A heartfelt story from Bridgestone Multimedia Group, this family-friendly DVD is the perfect resource to teach your family the virtues of true humility and total dependence upon God's grace.

Review:
John is the main character in this film and he is a quiet and hard working man. He takes care of the land that has been in his family for 150 years. With generation after generation living in this community, he knows its people and about commitment and faith. Raised by his grandfather, John lives his life by the Word of God.

John's story is one of trust and love along with the challenges of his faith. His quiet life is faced with decisions about his farm, his new wife, and the future of his church. It is a tale for the family to enjoy as you watch as one man's spiritual beliefs help him through some trying times.

We happily award this film the Dove "Family Approved" Seal for all ages.
