the movement

A few years back, a little book started something very big. A message that has already prompted people to give to others, connect with friends and family, and help those in need like never before. Every one of us has powerful gifts to share, now we all have the added inspiration, resources and opportunities of a full-fledged movement. Each day, the momentum grows and the impact widens, as The Ultimate Gift continues to inspire millions of others to "share the gift...and change the world."

ultimate statements

  • "I ordered 7 copies for our Book Review Group at our church. All of us are giving our copy to someone else to read. I have read it at least three times and find something new in it each time."

  • "A friend came up to me after the show and quipped "I only cried once!" I replied, "Me, too -- from five minutes after the movie started through the credits". Even the beautifully portrayed humor brought tears because of the all too real truth and sweet sorrow behind it!

    I send my sincere admiration and gratitude for making a family-friendly film that educates, entertains, and leaves us better for having experienced it. The Ultimate Gift is truly a film that I will watch again and again for the 12 lessons, and the way it makes me feel as if I can help make the world a better place, too.

    Please continue on this path. Your sense of direction is important to the healing, health, and future of the families of our nation and world!"
