Reviews of "Living the Dream"
"A hilarious and yet meaningful Christian comedy. Cheryl Haakenson does a wonderful job in her debut performance. Loved the film."
"Dear Claire, I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed watching your film last night! It was so well scripted and crafted and the characters were really believable! And even more, I so much appreciate the Spirit behind the message and the fact that you and Terry are involved in creating Christian films! Thank you for doing this for the world. I can’t wait to see the next one! Blessings, Maggie."
The film was so well received when it debuted in Sun City West that we have been asked to do special showings of the film at churches. It includes a presentation on the Christian film industry and the importance of Christian film, and a Q & A with the actors. If you would like us to show the film at your church, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
