17 Miracles DVD Review and Giveaway...

We were excited for the opportunity to review the 17 Miracles DVD!

17 Miracles arrived on DVD and Blu-ray September 13th from Excel Entertainment Group.

A Pioneer Film Like You’ve Never Seen Before...

As part of the Willie Handcart Company, Levi Savage (Jasen Wade) feared that leaving late in the season would lead to despair and death. What he came to find out is that for every tragedy, there is a multitude of miracles.

Based on unbelievable actual events, and brought to you by filmmaker T.C. Christensen (Praise to the Man, The Work and the Glory), 17 Miracles will open your eyes to the stories of the Mormon Pioneers as you have never seen them before. Something extraordinary is about to happen.

Levi Savage kept meticulous records as he made his journey west toward the Salt Lake Valley. Many of the unbelievable miracles showcased in 17 Miracles come directly from Levi's first hand journal entries.


This movie pays tribute to the people who followed their faith using wooden handcarts to carry their supplies as they walked to the Salt Lake Valley. It's amazing to see all that the pioneers went through as they walked though freezing snow and ice cold rivers. They lost a lot of their loved ones but still kept pressing forward to get to Salt Lake. Jason Wade does an excellent job portraying Levi Savage. You get a real feel of the fear they felt when being threatened by mobs and having to leave town. This is a good family movie. It really makes you appreciate all that we have. Since we have relatives that came over with the Willie Handcart Company, this movie was personal and very touching.

The film has a running time of approximately 102 minutes and is rated PG for mild thematic elements. For more information, visit www.17Miracles.com. The DVD ($24.98) and Blu-ray ($29.98) are available at Deseret Book and DeseretBook.com.
Excel Entertainment, Utah’s largest independent film distributor is behind such box office and DVD success stories as God’s Army, The Other Side of Heaven, Saints and Soldiers, The Work and the Glory, and Forever Strong.

Now here's the exciting part... 

I get to give one lucky winner this DVD!
