A heartfelt tale of inspiration, hope and redemption, Letters to God is the story of what happens when one boyâ€™s walk of faith crosses paths with one manâ€™s search for meaningâ€”the resulting transformational journey touches the lives of everyone around them. The movie will be released on 9th April 2010 worldwide.Â The soundtrack to Letters to God compliments the filmâ€™s inspirational and uplifting message.
Tyler Doherty (TANNER MAGUIRE) is an extraordinary eight-year-old boy.Â 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.Â To Tyler, God is a friend, a teacher and the ultimate pen palâ€”Tylerâ€™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.Â At first, he is confused and conflicted over what to do with the letters.Â Overtime he begins to form a friendship with the Doherty family â€“ getting to know not just Tyler but his tough, tender yet overwhelmed mom (ROBYN LIVELY), stalwart grandmother (MAREE CHATHAM) 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 Tylerâ€™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 â€“in an exhilarating act of testament to the contagious effect of one boyâ€™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 childâ€™s belief can have on his family, friends and community.

This movie is getting great press — I’m looking forward to seeing it. “Act as If”is another gerat inspirational movie. It’s a shorter sports documentary film by Melissa Johnson, who wrote, directed and produced the movie about her college basketball coach (at Harvard), Kathy Delaney-Smith. She uses the “Act as If” philosophy not only with her players, but also in life. Johnson says you don’t need to care about sports to benefit from the coach’s philosophy. You act as if you’ve won, you’ve overcome, you’ve beat the obstacle. I love that thinking! (And the coach used it personally, when she battled cancer. She used it to deal with treatments and she never missed a practice or a game. Very inspirational.)
this movie is great. it can be blessing for everyone who watch it, include me. I just wanna say, whatever our condition, we have to stay trust God that His will on us is wonderful. Maybe we don’t get cancer, but all problems could be like a cancer, but Jesus said that He will never leave us, i trust it. He’s good, He’s all in all. Be strong! Cause He cares about us. Amen……

Blessings to you!
this is a great movie-a movie that must be watched by everyone . .
This was the best movie i have ever seen, it was very sad, but its quite amazing how a child in his situation could still be looking to God the way Tyler did. I cried during almost the whole movie, it was so moving to me how he focused on God the entire time…He really made me think about my life and how i deal with things..He is an inspiring little boy!
This movie was a blessing for me and i hope that I can buy in Hispanic for my Mom. Movies like this one are excellent for our children. My prayers for all the kids in situations like Tyler.
this is a great but sad movie… made me cry like a baby
The movie hits close to home.wife has Cancer too. WAY too close. cant even cope some days.. this helped.. its hard being the the other person too. its like your alone sometimes… and yet have to do everything and watch them suffer and feel bad and then still deal with your own sadness,fear and wonder if you can do it all and be strong…
I just saw a small portion of the movie “Letters to God.” It opened my heart – a heart previously closed up and frozen from years of hurts and fears. In searching for the movie and soundtrack I came across your site. Thank you for setting me back on the path back to God. God Bless you and yours.
God’s love never fails! The movie *letters to God* made me understand that we should give glory to God each passing day of our lives! Today!I tasted something bitter which the world offerred me,it injured me to the point that I felt the ground should open up and consume me from the face of this earth.I just want to say that God does not sleep nor slumber,He knows everything we go through,He hears our prayers………..and most of all!,He is not ready to let go because He is not through with you!……….. God bless you all.i
the film is so Inspirational, full ov Hope
I wish u could let me know the Artist n title track ov that theme playing at Introduction of the Film
Best movie ever,this movie shows the faith of a boy who even at the point when he needed God’s healing but didn’t get it, instead he opened his heart more to God and wrote a letter telling Him about other people’s need.and also bringing them closer to God
Letter to GOD is a very BIG peace of work, I enjoyed every part of the movie, and it gives hope where they is no hope. What I mean is that you have believe in this live that GOD is real it can change things around for good
A great movie that every human being should have a time to watch and to me its that best and a heart touching movie (God never fails)
Cnt express how I feel. It goes byond d display of emotions while watching d film. I was gr8ly blessed.
I’ve been feeling something has been missing in my life. I grew up in church and unfortunately as I got older I strayed from the One who really loved me. Recently I’ve been praying and just felt like God couldn’t hear me. I sat down tonight and felt God had a message for me. By the end of the movie as sad as it was, my hope and my spirit were soaring. I was crying like a baby, because God showed me hope, faith and most of all how much God loves me. Thank you for making such an inspiring movie. God is love and I feel it. My heart is healed.
