By Billy Hallowell on 9/16/22 5:00 AM

Life can be both beautiful and painful. And when uncertainty hits, it’s not uncommon for fear and anxiety to take hold.

Just like in "Legacy Peak," when father figure Jason and his girlfriend's children land themselves in some very scary and unpredictable situations, their first instinct is to be fearful and anxious. But once they come together under Jason's insightful guidance, including his use of scripture and Christian strength, they are able to safely navigate the turbulent scenarios they encounter.

Watch the trailer for "Legacy Peak" now available! Here's the synopsis: Jason wants nothing more than to have Noelle’s kids like him.
