Letters to God
Tyler Doherty (Tanner Maguire) is an extraordinary eight-year-old boy. Surrounded by a loving family and community, and armed with the courage of his faith, he faces his daily battle against cancer with bravery and grace. To Tyler, God is a friend, a teacher and the ultimate pen pal—Tyler's prayers take the form of letters, which he composes and mails on a daily basis.
The letters find their way into the hands of Brady McDaniels (Jeffrey S.S. Johnson), a beleaguered postman standing at a crossroads in his life. At first, he is confused and conflicted over what to do with the letters. Overtime he begins to form a friendship with the Doherty family – getting to know not just Tyler but his tough, tender yet overwhelmed mom (Robyn Lively), stalwart grandmother (Maree Cheatham) and teen brother Ben (Michael Christopher Bolten) -- who are each trying to stand strong against the doubts that come with the chaotic turn their lives have taken.
Moved by Tyler's courage, Brady realizes what he must do with the letters, a surprise decision that will transform his heart and uplift his newfound friends and community –in an exhilarating act of testament to the contagious effect of one boy's unwavering faith against the odds.
Inspired by a true story, Letters to God is an intimate, moving and often funny story about the galvanizing effect one child's belief can have on his family, friends and community.

I went to see this movie with my husband and smaller two children on our wedding anniversary and I have to say by far this is the best movie I've seen thus far. This movie was a real tear jerker, I couldnt stop crying, if only we all could go back to that child like faith that was potrayed in this movie. I pray as my kids get older they have such a zeal or greater for their Lord and Savior. This move deserves more then 5 stars!!

I have two daughters and I am currently in my own battle with cancer. We loved the movie and it gave real perspective to people in our situation.

This is truly a great movie, but for those who do not like tear jeekers, then maybe you better get a hankie ready. I would recommend everyone to watch this movie.

I liked this movie alot. I have read the noval also. The movie and the noval are soo good. I cried throu the whole movie. I am thankful that the Dougherty family alowed their sons story to be put into a movie. I hope and pray that families that are going throu the same thing will tealize that faith is an amzing thing and that prayer ( even though it may be answered differently than we want) is amazing and it does wonders.
