Wholesome family flick out on DVD

When Pastor Alex Kendrick read a study in 2003 indicating that movies had become more of an influence on impressionable young minds than the church, he decided to do something about it.

The Devil Didn’t Raise You

The Devil Didn’t Raise You The feminine touch has finally come to a Minneapolis stage, and we have playwright Pamela Rollins to thank for meeting this need. For two nights only, her play aptly titled, “The Devil Didn’t Raise You” made its Twin Cities debut at the Capri Theater.

The play illustrates the struggle three sisters have to overcome a past filled with uncertainty after their mother dies from a drug related death. One sister finds herself mirroring her mother’s addiction by falling to drug abuse, another gets swept away in a dangerous relationship, while the last mimics their Christian aunt who takes them all in, and does her best to hold this family together. Tana Matthews plays Aunt Kay, a God fearing woman who works to remind these women that no matter what they’ve been through, they’re children of God, first.
