Review:
This is a remarkable DVD which promotes godly living. Four teens, Delilah, Leah, David and Luke, have known each other for years and they make a pact at the beginning of High School that they will not drink alcohol, do drugs or have sex before marriage. They are committed to the Lord but soon face challenges in keeping their promises. A boy named Jude dates Delilah and wants to take their relationship to another level, David is offered alcohol, Leah faces her parent's divorce and deals with it by not allowing herself to be vulnerable, and Luke is tempted to play other kinds of music rather than music for the Lord.

This DVD features the group praying and reminding each other what the Bible says. We highly recommend it for ages twelve plus, due to a few intense scenes. This DVD is a wonderful statement that young adults can live godly lives! It could be used as a powerful teaching took in a youth class.
