Meanwhile, on the home front, his wife Judy and son Todd feel privileged to walk on the carpet beneath their feet as they delicately try to avoid stepping on Jay’s toes. Judy is frustrated at the way her husband has been selling cars dishonestly, and Todd feels unimportant to his father.
One day, Jay’s pastor comes to visit the lot and purchases a car for his daughter. As the minister leaves, he pauses to pray a prayer of blessing over Jay. The only thing is, for Jay it’s a blessing with a catch. After some serious thinking about his actions, Jay starts to turn in a new direction - but consequences come as he makes important changes in his life. Will Jay stick to his word?
You will find yourself both laughing hysterically and crying joyfully (not at the same time, of course) as you watch this great film. As Stephen and Alex Kendrick have noted, this first movie from Sherwood Baptist Church doesn’t necessarily have the same film quality as their more recent projects… yet this is one movie you won’t want to miss.

Katie: “Don’t you talk back to me. I’m tired of the lies, the deceit, the confection, and everything else.”
Jay Austin: “The confection???”
On a personal note, our family was able to drive by Sherwood Baptist Church and “Jay Austin Motors” (Mac George Motorcars) on a roadtrip last year
