Who are you?

That can be a rather tough question to answer at times can't it? We have these ways that we define our own selves--- often by the career we choose or the talents we show--- but these can be taken at any time, leaving us asking again... 'Who am I?'
This idea of identity is a primary theme in the upcoming movie Overcomer:

SYNOPSISLife changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth ... until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey.Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humor, and a ton of heart, the Kendrick Brothers return to theaters with OVERCOMER, their newest feature following FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and the #1 box- office hit, WAR ROOM. The inspiring family film stars Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Shari Rigby, Cameron Arnett, and introduces Aryn Wright-Thompson. Opening nationwide on August 23, OVERCOMER dares to leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and asks the question: what do you allow to define you?

I don't know about you, but I love a good sports movie. I don't care for sports, but the movies? They always seem to have great messages that are so important not just for athletes, but in life in general. I cannot wait to see this one. I feel like this message of discovering what defines us and of overcoming is such an important one for ALL ages. Take a look at what some of the cast/crew had to say about what it means to be an overcomer:

OVERCOMER in many regards, is a discovery of who we are in Christ, who gets to determine our identity and what we have to overcome to embrace the life God has for us,” said Alex Kendrick. 
“Overcoming is about powering through and realizing that on the other side of it you are stronger and more courageous than when you started,” said Shari Rigby. 
“Being an overcomer means you keep your head up and you know that you’re going to get through it; you figure out a way to get through it, you keep your faith strong, you get through it, and you just thank God,” said Aryn Wright-Thompson. 
“Being an overcomer means there is pain, discomfort, inconvenience, life’s tough, and yet you have joy and peace and all the stuff that you can only have if there is an anchor in your soul,” said Priscilla Shirer.
I love these words of wisdom, and cannot wait to see this film for myself. You can learn more and connect at the links below.
